Mike On Mic: Bloomberg Audio Discusses Throwing Minorities ‘Against The Wall’

In a resurfaced audio clip from 2015, Mike Bloomberg, the former mayor of NYC defends the controversial "stop and frisk" policy adopted by the NYPD. In the recording he focuses on minorities and says the “way to get the guns out of the kids hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”

The recording was made at the Aspen Institute back in 2015.

The clip features Bloomberg claiming the average description of criminals as “male, minorities, 16-25.” 

“Ninety-five percent of murders-murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops…They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city (inaudible). And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people getting killed.”

Speaking to the unintended consequences of this policy, namely the rise in arrests for other charges such as marijuana possession, the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful agreed that it is happening because minority neighborhoods are specifically targeted.

“Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods. Yes, that’s true. Why do we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is. And the way you get the guns out of the kids' hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”

President Trump tweeted in all caps denouncing Bloomberg’s racism, the tweet was later taken down, but his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted #BloombergIsARacist alongside a clip from a radio interview in 2013 where Bloomberg is seen complaining that the amount of whites stopped by police was “too much” and the amount of minorities was “too little”.

 

Parscale also tweeted out the leaked Aspen Institute audio.

#BloombergIsARacist was trending on Twitter by late Tuesday afternoon.
