|CNN believes that skinheads like Harry Houck bring "balance" to |
discussions of police killings by deflecting the issue onto so-called
"Black on Black" crime and ranting about "you people."
CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin called out the network’s law enforcement analyst, Harry Houck, on Tuesday for referring to a black activist from Chicago as “you people.”
After Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that he had fired Police Supt. Garry McCarthy over fallout from Laquan McDonald’s shooting, Baldwin asked Houck and NAACP Youth President Stephen Green for their reaction.
Houck took the side of the outgoing police chief, saying that Emanuel should have been made to resign instead.
“This mayor should be impeached, he should resign,” the former NYPD detective opined. “The National Guard should go into Chicago, take that city back from the thugs.”
“You people,” the law enforcement analyst continued before he was interrupted by Baldwin.
“It’s not ‘you people,’ Harry,” the CNN host sighed. “Come on.”
“You people who live in Chicago,” Houck shouted, “should start voting for maybe another person, maybe a Republican, instead and see how he — a Republican — can come in there and straighten that city out.”
