MCCARTHY: ‘Policing … Is Now Stigmatized As Racist’

  • National Review columnist and former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy was critical of the Biden Justice Department’s decision to open up a civil-rights investigation into the killing of Tyre Nichols, given that the victim and all of the police officers involved were black men.
  • McCarthy noted that if the killing had been the result of a battle between black gang members, Biden’s DOJ would have turned a blind eye to the homicide.
  • McCarthy: “The knee-jerk presumption of a civil-rights violation is explainable solely because these five alleged killers are police — or, at least, were police at the time of the killing. The profession of policing, of serving and protecting the communities in which the cops themselves live, is now stigmatized as racist.”
