Uncovering Discrimination at the Baltimore Police Department: The Daily Show

October 8, 2019


NOW TRUMP IS ALSO ON THE
CAMPAIGN TRAIL. IN FACT, LAST NIGHT IN
WISCONSIN, HE MADE A PITCH DIRECTLY TO BLACK VOTERS. NOT NEAR BLACK VOTERS BUT TWO
BLACK VOTERNESS.>>TRUMP ASKING FOR THE
AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE IN FRONT OF AN NEARLY ALL WHITE CROWD IN
WEST BEND, WISCONSIN, A TOWN THAT IS NEARLY 90% WHITE.>>I’M ASKING FOR THE VOTES OF
EVERY AFRICAN-AMERICAN CITIZEN STRUGGLING IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY,
WHO WANTS A DIFFERENT AND MUCH BETTER FUTURE.>>Trevor: YOU KNOW THINGS ARE
BAD WHEN A RICH WHITE MAN IS ASKING BLACK PEOPLE FOR HELP. (LAUGHTER)
THAT’S WHEN YOU KNOW, YEAH, BECAUSE NORMALLY THE ONLY TIME A
70 YEAR OLD BILLIONAIRE IS ASKING BLACK PEOPLE FOR HELP, IT
IS USUALLY THEIR NURSE. THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE ASKING.
AND IT IS USUALLY ILY IT’S BECAUSE THEY [BLEEP] THEMSELVE,
AND TECHNICALLY THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN HAS, SO I GUESS IT IS
THE. NOW NORMALLY IF HE ASKING FOR
VOTES HE HAS TO GIVE A REASON TO VOTE FOR HIM. WHICH IS WHY HE HAS TO SAY SOME
WORDS ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BLACK AND THE POLICE
COMMUNITY.>>THE NARRATIVE OF COPS AS A
RACIST FORCE IN OUR COMMUNITY, THAT HAS BEEN PUSHED
AGGRESSIVELY FOR YEARS AND NOW BY OUR CURRENT ADMINISTRATION
AND PUSHED BY MY OPPONENT. HILLARY CLINTON, YOU KNOW IS A
TOTALLY FALSE ONE.>>Trevor: SO WAIT, DONALD
TRUMP ISISM PLYING THAT THE ONLY REASON BLACK COMMUNITIES FEEL
OPPRESSED ISN’T BECAUSE OF THEIR EXPERIENCES, NO, IT’S BECAUSE OF
THE DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE TRICKED THEM. (LAUGHTER)
LIKE BEFORE THAT, BLACK PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING
TO THEM? LIKE BLACK PEOPLE WERE SURPRISED
DEMOCRATS CAME AND THEY WERE LIKE WAIT, WHAT, WHAT, THIS IS
OPPRESSION. OH, I THOUGHT THE OPPOSITE WAS
MISOGYNY WITH HIS KNIFE STICK, OH, I DIDN’T KNOW, WHY, THANK
YOU, MR. DEMOCRAT. OKAY, SO SORRY, SORRY, I
INTERRUPTED YOU, PLEASE, MR. DONALD TRUMP, SINCE YOU ARE
DOWN WITH THE BLACK COMMUNITY, WON’T YOU BE SO KIND AS TO
SUGGEST A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF PERCEIVED POLICE
MISCONDUCT.>>THE PROBLEM IN OUR POOREST
COMMUNITIES IS NOT THAT THERE ARE TOO MANY POLICE, THE PROBLEM
IS THAT THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH POLICE.>>Trevor: WHOA. (LAUGHTER)
DONALD TRUMP SAID THAT STATEMENT LIKE SOMEONE WHO SMOKED A TON OF
WEED, THE PROBLEM S THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH POLICE, WHOA. WHOA. ANG LOOK, LOOK AT MY HANDS. MY HANDS ARE SO REGULAR SIZED. (LAUGHTER)
WHOA! HERE SAY PROBLEM I HAVE WITH
THAT STATEMENT. WE NEED MORE POLICE. YOU CANNOT PITCH MORE POLICE
WITHOUT FIXING THE POLICE THAT ARE ALREADY THERE, RIGHT. THE PHILADELPHIA 6ERS DON’T NEED
MORE BASKETBALL PLAYERS, THEY NEED BETTER BASKETBALL PLAYERS. BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TO
POLICING IN AMERICA, WHENEVER AN INVESTIGATION IS CONDUCTED INTO
A POLICE DEPARTMENT, THE JUSTICE DEMENT’S FINDINGS OFTEN SOUND
LIKE THIS.>>A SCATHING REPORT JUST
RELEASED TODAY REVEALING RACIAL BIAS IN THE BALTIMORE POLICE
DEPARTMENT.>>THEY ARE TRAINED USING LAW
THAT IS INVALID, WRONG OR UNCONSTITUTIONAL.>>ROUTINELY STOP, SEARCH AND
ARREST AFRICAN-AMERICAN RESIDENTS FOR NO GOOD REASON.>>TOO QUICK TO USE TASERS WHEN
CONFRONTING PEOPLE WITH MENTAL PROBLEMS.>>POLICE TOO OFTEN RESORT TO
EXCESSIVE FORCE, EVEN WHEN THERE IS NO DANGER TO OFFICERS OR
OTHERS.>>ONE COMMANDSER ONCE ORDERED
QUOTE LOCK UP ALL THE BLACK HOODIES.>>Trevor: WOW, LOCK UP ALL
THE BLACK HOODIES. THE ONLY TIME THAT STATEMENT IS
ACCEPTABLE IN THE WORKPLACE IS IF YOU ARE A MANAGER AT H & M,
THAT IS THE ONLY TIME YOU CAN SAY THAT. LOCK UP ALL THE BLACK HOODIES,
THEY ARE OUR MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM, 6.899 EACH, PEOPLE. BUT SERIOUSLY, THOUGH. STOPPING AFRICAN-AMERICAN PEOPLE
IS SO HABITUAL FOR THE BALTIMORE POLICE THAT ONE MAN WHO HAS
NEVER FOUND TO BE DOING ANYTHING WRONG WAS STOPPED 30 TIMES IN
LESS THAN FOUR YEARS. HERE IS HOW NORMAL IT WAS FOR
THEM TO TREAT BLACK PEOPLE THIS WAY.>>DURING A RIDE-ALONG WITH
JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS, A BALTIMORE POLICE DEPARTMENT
SERGEANT INSTRUCTED A PATROL OFFICER TO STOP A GROUP OF YOUNG
AFRICAN-AMERICAN MALES ON A STREET CORNER, QUESTION THEM AND
ORDER THEM TO DISPERCENT.>>WHEN THE PATROL OFFICER
APPROACHED AND SAID HE HAD NO VALID REASON TO STOP THE GROUP,
THE SERGEANT REPLIED, THEN MAKE SOMETHING UP.>>Trevor: INVESTIGATORS FROM
THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ARE IN THE CAR WITH THE POLICE TO SEE
IF THEY ARE DOING SOMETHING WRONG, ANYTHING WRONG. AND THEIR HABITS ARE SO
ENTRENCHED THAT THEY CAN’T HELP THEMSELVES. THERE IS SOMEONE RIGHT THERE
TELLING YOU NOT TO DO T AND STILL YOU DO IT YOU KNOW WHAT
THAT IS LIKE? IT IS LIKE THIS CAT.>>NO, NO, NO. NO, NO, NO. NO. (LAUGHTER)
(APPLAUSE).>>Trevor: YEAH. NOW IMAGINE THAT GLASS IS YOUR
CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES WHEN PEOPLE
HEAR STORIES ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE BEING STOPPED A LOT BY THE
POLICE, IT SOUNDS LIKE AN IRRITATION, YOU KNOW. YOU GET STOPPED A LOT. THAT’S IRRITATING. BUT THEN YOU HEAR A STORY THAT
PAINTS A PICTURE OF WHAT THESE STOPS WITH LIED TO.>>THERE IS FROM THE DEPARTMENT
OF JUSTICE REPORT. OFFICERS ORDERED THE WOMAN TO
EXIT HER VEHICLE, REMOVE HER CLOTHES AND STAND ON THE
SIDEWALK TO BE SEARCHED. THE WOMAN ASKED THE MALE OFFICER
IN CHARGE I REALLY GOT TO TAKE ALL MY CLOTHES OFF? THE MALE OFFICER REPLIED YEAH. AND ORDERED A FEMALE OFFICER TO
STRIP SEARCH THE WOMAN FIND NOTHING WEAPONS OR CON TRA BAND
AROUND THE WOMAN’S CHEST, THE OFFICER THEN PULLED DOWN THE
WOMAN’S UNDERWEAR AND SEARCHED HER ANNAL CAVITY. THIS SEARCH AGAIN FOUND NO
EVIDENCE OF WRONGDOING AND THE OFFICERS RELEASED THE WOMAN
WITHOUT CHARGES. THE SEARCH OCCURRED IN FULL VIEW
OF THE STREET, ALTHOUGH THE SUPERVIEZING MALE OFFICER CLAIMS
HE TURNED AWAY AND DID NOT WATCH THE WOMAN DISROBE.>>Trevor: I LIKE HOW HE ADDED
THIS, LIKE THAT MADE IT BETTER. HE TURNED AWAY. WHAT A GENTLEMAN, YES, AND HEAR
I THOUGHT THAT BEHAVIOR WAS BORDERLINE CRIMINAL. NOW THIS STORY, IS A STORY. IT IS ANECDOTAL, I UNDERSTAND
THAT. IT’S TRUE. ALTHOUGH IT IS ONE WAY OF
UNDERSTANDING WHAT IS HAPPENING IN AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITIES
IN AMERICA. THE OTHER WAY OF UNDERSTANDING
IS TO FOCUS ON THE SYSTEM. SO LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT A PIECE
OF THE BALTIMORE POLICE DEPARTMENT SYSTEM. YOU CAN FIND IT ON PAGE 38 OF
THE D O.J. REPORT. THIS IS A TELL PLATE USED BY THE
BALTIMORE POLICE OFFICERS. AND THIS IS COMPLETELY REAL. WE COULDN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT. IT WAS SENT TO THEM BY A SHIFT
COMMANDER TO SAVE THEM TIME WHILE WRITING UP TRESPASSING OR
ARRESTS, RIGHT. SO IT IS LIKE A POLICE CHEAT
SHEET WITH BLANKS THAT YOU CAN FILL IN. SO IT SAYS THINGS LIKE ON DATE,
AT APPROXIMATELY– TIME. THE OFFICER WAS WORKING AT, THIS
ADDRESS. YOU CAN FILL IN WHATEVER YOU
WANT. SO ALL THE DETAILS ARE THERE FOR
YOU TO FILL IN. BUT THERE WAS ONE DETAIL THAT
WAS ALWAYS PREFILLED. THE SUSPECT WAS A BLACK MALE. YEAH. AND THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS JUST
FLAT OUT RACIST. TWO TO WHITE PEOPLE. BECAUSE THIS STATEMENT MAKES IT
IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY WHITE MAN TO BE A TRESPASSER. YEAH, WHAT IF THAT IS THE WHITE
GUY’S DREAM, HUH? WHAT IF HE IS TRYING TO TRESPASS
AND EVERY COP THAT COMES BY IS LIKE HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING
HERE, YOU HERE FOR A JOB INTERVIEW. NO, MAN, I’M TRES PASSION. WELL, I’M SORRY, I DON’T HAVE A
FORM FOR THAT, SO YOU’RE HIRED. LET’S GO. LET’S GO, LET’S GO.>>Trevor: SO NEXT TIME
SOMEONE TELLS YOU THE NARRATIVE OF RACIAL BIAS IN PLACING IS
MADE UP, MAYBE YOU CAN USE THIS TELL PLATE. WHAT YOU DO IS YOU FILL IN THE
DATE, THE PLACE WHERE IT HAPPENED, AND THE NAME OF THE
PERSON WHO DISMISSED YOUR RACIAL CLAIM. nd OH AND THERE IS ONE FIELD
THAT WE CAN PREFILL, BECAUSE THE

Only registered users can comment.

  1. Baltimore police are ku kluck Klan members… do they even live in Baltimore??? Fuckkng 7th circle of hell.
    If you have a CHOICE to raise your children in Baltimore, you get what you deserve.

  2. Rich white folks been needing black people to help, hell black slavery built this country without our FREE labor this country wouldn't be what it is today

  3. Not enough blue costumes murderers in our communities? We won't be able to come out if there are more police in our neighborhoods. The officer turned away? Those passing by didn't while he laughed with his back to the lady.
    Why are they not harassing the white youths smashing windows in buildings, homes, setting fires, throwing objects out of car windows at brown people, trespassing for racial confrontation, etc…this is why we need more police? πŸ–•

  4. If this incident with that lady happened in India That officer would have been behind the bars or worst

  5. Not enough police? Lol I get pulled over and dude thinks he smells weed and I got 8 squad cars on me lol I think we have enough

  6. Democrat Baltimore crooks stolled $3 billion dollars that was suppose to go toward education and housing. Now this new Mayor wants more money to clean West Baltimore, but he has no explanation how the previous Mayor lost $3 billion dollars. Now kids are living in abandoned rat infested buildings. Dems Congressman are corrupt.

  7. I admire Trevor,reporting news like that and still be able to keep his cool and even so to make humor,just problaby to hide his rage anger or disgust about the whole situation.i mean i wouldnt.Sorry americans but your country has a long way to go and honest i hope it gets there.But first things firts: education information cleanings!!!!!

  8. Hi humans. If anyone wants to learn more about this I’d highly recommend the book My Grandmothers Hands, by a Minneapolis black (bodied) clinical social worker, Resmaa Menakem. It looks at white (bodies), police (bodies), and black (bodies) in relation to racialized trauma.

    If anyone wants to hear an excerpt from the book I read a few from one of the chapters a few months ago on my channel. The book is available through Audible.

    Lastly, no hate please. If you don’t like my suggestion/experience then it’s not for you ( Ν‘Β° ΝœΚ– Ν‘Β°)

  9. O still don't understand why black people accept to go through all of that. Ok this is your country but it's also the country where you were put. You're just dealing with the furstration of white America. I'm not saying go back to Africa but there are countries where the police will treat you like just any other human being.

  10. Yes we need more police to racially profile the poor . They are handing out prison sentence for fucking Driving on suspended license. These are ppl trying to go to work to pay their tickets. I’m done !

  11. People are laughing about the racist against white people but that was how Loving was decided– the law was deemed to have taken the right of white people to decide who they were going to married sp it was deemed racist and unconstitutional

  12. After eight cops are going to be really don't even need cops anymore because who are we going to call to protect us from them.

  13. Wat a fucked up commercial to play right before this clip…. they literally played a white nationalist advertisement directed straight at my state….I know this ain't comedy Central fault but this is some bullshit

  14. The problems in the police forces are proportional police ethnicities representing the community served and de-escalation training continually enforced. Overall, I like cops and think they do a good job. I feel for them. Often they come face to face wirh the dredges of society on a regular. They see the ugly many of us aren't really exposed to, but when you serve the public- you gotta keep a straight face, your opinions internalized (or told in private), and keep fair.

    I live in Atlanta metro, and I feel like the cops here represent the community and act in professional way. I'm sure we have bad ones of all groups, but it's not really an issue that we see/hear about.

  15. Trump is just the "KINGPIN OF ENTERTAINMENT"! I just know Trump for being an entertainer. I once had a Trump board game. Trump Business only benefits him.

  16. Someone please kick this clown out of the White House pronto! πŸ‘’πŸ’₯🀑 Along with all his racist trumpards

  17. President Trump: Come up with a #ReparationsAgenda and package and you can get our vote.
    We are a #BLOCKVOTE and we will only vote for a candidate with a #ReparationsAgenda. Otherwise we will abstain from the vote in #2020. We know the Dems can not win without our vote … and you can't win without us either bc your base is divided and you have proven you can't get the popular vote! You can only buy the Electoral vote once!

  18. Trump is still a Christian even if He aint perfect, the Elite hates Him well theire Media are showing it like Trevor Noah, Jimmy Kimmel…

  19. We spend an embarrassingly small amount of time training the police. Noah is right we need better cops, we can have them with more training in things like conflict management.

  20. Trump is a double talking slick SOB. Him asking African Americans to vote for him is like asking African Americans to vote for slavery. FOH!!

  21. @Trevor, ifind it bias that you report mostly on blacks when Hispanics are greatly treated worse. I understand you as a black male and it hit home for you. I wish your segment has more content with the Latin community with the black community. In no way shape or form do I take away from the black community as Latino suffer as much or more than the black community under Trump presidency since it is the target of his candidacy. Not saying you do not report but not as much. Im not saying it's a who is more important but Hispanics are being rounded up just because of their last name by ICE and left to the NSA to determine if they are legal despite being American born. I get asked by police for a green card even though I am American and born and raised in the south. We need a voice in the news also. Very few media cover such stories. Thank you very much for listening.

  22. 3 years later: black people are doing SOOOOOO great with Donald in office.
    Especially in lovely perfect Baltimore.
    /sarcasm

  23. His solution to poloce brutality and racial bias is "We need more police" 😠 n
    … It's been years and he's still bringing up Hillary Clinton's name and blaming her for his problems as president. Of not her then he's going to mention Obama. It's never been his fault.

  24. It’s odd watching this and comparing it to South African police… here the police is predominantly black and the black on black police brutality is well known. Black police hardly ever try this stuff with white people.

  25. I did not know it was this pathetic. Like for real, search a person in public and see it as ok. That is a slavery and entitlement mindset. I feel like puking. Then the prefilled document… Only when you are on the majority side do you feel safe when others are oppressed until the tables turn on you.

  26. I think it’s funny how Trump asked for African-American votes saying to vote if they want change, when nothing that good happened WHILE he was president in favor of African-Americans? Trevor also has a point, when a rich white man is asking black people for help, that’s bad and all but yeah.

  27. I'm sorry I got turned on when I heard Anal Cavity. For real though treating African American like this and yet some of you serve in the military and are patriotic and racist towards other races such as Muslims/Indians… I just don't know what to say like even brown people don't get treated like but that's mainly because our behavior, how we present ourselves and careers demand respect.

  28. As far as the police cheat sheet the saddest part is the black officers have to know about that and they still work there wtf seriously how is that even legal lmao

  29. If that cocksucker come to my knowledge, ill kill him. His a desgrace to his race. Probably best if his family is dead , too… I hate perverts. Everybody should, too.

  30. Trump must think African-Americans are all idots including 95% of the poor community. the really good candidates have been left out of the debate becouse of the manipulation of these bias polls that want to silence those candidate's that brings real change. Don't let your them fool us Again vote for tulsi

  31. πŸ˜©πŸ‘€πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜³πŸ˜šπŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜. πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡²πŸ…±οΈβŒπŸ’»πŸ’»β°β°β°β°β°πŸ”«βš”οΈπŸ§¨πŸ›πŸ§¨πŸ§ΊπŸ§»πŸ§¨πŸ§±πŸ§»πŸšΏπŸ’Ž

  32. Trumps hypocrisy has no limits his speech in Wisconsin was full of lies and half truths. Trump does not care for the poor African American people struggling in Cities in America! His speech said vote for me and I will make sure you have a better life under Trump! It’s all about the President! it has always been that way! And always will be about Trump!

  33. Wow trumps words did not age well at all. His support of white nationalist attacking minority groups sort of makes him look like… what’s the word? Ah yes, a fucking LIER!

  34. Kanye West made a comment….that slavery was a choice. He was not entirely wrong. You have a choice. You always have a choice. But everyone is so afraid and conditioned that someone would actually follow the orders of another person to disrobe in the street. Now i ask you. Are we not still slaves? Until you can stand with some dignity and courage you will always be a slave.

  35. When I was travelling around Europe for 1 and a half years I was stopped by the police in Valencia three times in one day. And those were nice police acting civil, which isn't the case there obviously, but it still was in no way nice experience. Can't imagine how harrowing it must be to be a black man (or even less as a woman) in the USA. In addition to "being prepared for the worst at all times" the police there is almost militarized in equipment and action. Police are meant to stabilize and calm things for f&%Β€ks sake!

  36. DID THIS LOWLIFE SAY
    MORE COPS IN POOR NEIGHBORHOODS? 😑
    SCREW THAT πŸ”©πŸ”©πŸ”©
    THIS πŸŽƒ HEAD HAS GOT
    TO GO BEFORE ITS TO LATE
    😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  37. insightful story. I do have to say, I have to rewind and watch that cat about 50 times before I can move on with my life.

  38. Yes! Trevor knows that reverse racism does not exist. πŸ”ˆπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ”ŠπŸ—―πŸ—―πŸ—―πŸ—―πŸ—―

  39. It's more of us than it is of them a lot of us don't vote and black women have way more kids than white women black men have way more kids than white men it's more of us than it is of them that's why he asking

  40. I’m proud of this show. We need more balls in the UNITED SNAKES in stead of effeminate loose hanging shriveled up peas. Bull women have worn pants with nothing that comes out of the zipper for to long. It’s has gotten our lil girls that are half naked and booty shaking, men who act like girls and afraid to run their own houses and the earth destroyed in 500 years. The serpent first beguiled Eve, as it is doing to this day! The world is now the valley of the dry bones!!! APTTMH for a great show. Your Grandmas following of TMH shows. Shalam

  41. lmao trevor your hands are not regular sized. you are a weird mutant with tentacles extruding from a flesh clump normal people call a hand

  42. As someone in the criminal justice system, things like this hurt not only Baltimore police – community relations, but also put strain on peoples across the nation. I don't wish o downplay the systemic racism found within our criminal justice system because it exists and there is no denying this fact. I do want to say though, that Baltimore is known as one of the worst places when it comes to policing in this country, both for the officers and for the community. I'm not exonerating everyone on either side, there is true evil at play. I just ask that people remember that not everywhere is like Baltimore.
