SANDERS: This is a responsibility for the U.S. Justice Department to get involved:
CLINTON: Sadly it's reality, and it has been heartbreaking, & incredibly outraging to see the constant stories of young men, like Walter Scott, who have been killed by police officers. Their needs to be a concerted effort to address the systemic racism in our criminal justice system. That requires a very clear agenda for retraining police officers, looking at ways to end racial profiling, finding more ways to really bring the disparities that stalk our country into high relief. One out of three African American men may well end up going to prison. What we would be doing if it was one out of three white men? Often, the black men are arrested, convicted and incarcerated for offenses that do not lead to the same results for white men. So, we have a very serious problem that we can no longer ignore.
