In a heated exchange on “Starting Point,” Rep. Peter King (R-NY) insists to “The New Yorker” Washington Correspondent Ryan Lizza that ‘there is no racial profiling’ by the New York Police Department.
Lizza asks King what his position is on racial profiling and if the NYPD should be above criticism. King says “there is no profiling. And that’s the absolute nonsense that people like you and others are propagating.”
Rep. King was on to explain why he was calling for an apology from Democratic members of Congress after slammed the NYPD for monitoring Muslims.
“I’m telling you there is no profiling,” Rep. King insists. “You have no evidence of profiling at all. They use terms like profiling, spying, casually and cavalierly. And you don’t know what you’re talking about.”
