[Trey Gowdy Utterly Demolishes Black Lives Matter And Ethnic Studies Professor]

[Mr. Gowdy:] And you were not able to address other cases I wanted to ask you whether or not you were familiar with a few other cases. Sandy Rogers and Scotty Richardson from Aiken South Carolina are you familiar with that case.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] How about Roger Dale Rice from Laurens South Carolina, are you familiar with that case.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Eric Nicholson or Marcus Whitfield from Greenville South Carolina are you familiar with that case.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Russell Sorrow from Greenville South Carolina.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Or Kevin Carper from Spartanburg South Carolina.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Professor those are just a handful of the more than 340 police officers who were killed in the line of duty in South Carolina and Kevin Carper’s case is most instructive because his partner did CPR on the suspect that killed Kevin trying to save his life. Let me ask you in another way are you familiar with the case of Ricky Samuel.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] How about Tamika Huston.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Source: LYBIO.net
How about Nell Lindsey.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Miranda Auell.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Santiago Rios.

[Ms. Ramirez:] No sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Those are all folks that were the victim of intra-racial homicides in South Carolina and I hasten to add there were not protests either with any of those police officer killings or any of the intra-racial killings. And I suspect you agree with me Professor that all lives about it whether you’re killed by a police officer or your next door neighbor you’re every bit as dead aren’t you.

[Ms. Ramirez:] Yes Sir, um… I actually as a former prosecutor and someone who has worked with police officers have the deepest respect for them.

[Mr. Gowdy:] So do I and despite that deep respect Professor I still maintain the objectivity prosecuting police officers, who engaged in misconduct. We have a process in place if you don’t think you can be fair. It’s called recusal, which is what some of us did, in every single one of our officer involved shootings we recused it to another prosecutor so he or she could make that decision.

So there is a process in place. You called for a process there is one it’s called ‘recusal’. Do you know as a former prosecutor can you deign what may have been the biggest impediment to our being able to successfully prosecute homicide cases particularly homicide cases involving victims of color in my criminal justice jurisdiction do you know what the biggest impediment was?

[Ms. Ramirez:] Source: LYBIO.net
In Massachusetts one of the biggest impediments is trying to get witnesses to come forward.

[Mr. Gowdy:]
You’re exactly right. You’re exactly right. You have a victim of color and we had trouble getting witnesses to cooperate with law enforcement and prosecutors, which then as you know diminishes the quality of that case and your ability to prosecute it, which may result in a lesser plea bargain. Because you don’t have the facts which may then result in what you said in your opening statement, which is people have a tendency to treat black lives differently than white when the reality is the case wasn’t quite as good ain’t that a possibility too?

[Ms. Ramirez:]
It – for every prosecutor who’s out there this is a serious problem and you are correct in pointing that out Sir.

[Mr. Gowdy:] Right and it weren’t just me pointing it out Professor, I happened to have a fantastic Chief of Police when I was the D.A. Fantastic man by the name of Tony Fisher who happened to be an African-American Chief of Police. And he lamented the exact same thing you and I are talking about, is the loss of life in his community and the refusal of people to cooperate. Even in a drive by shooting of an eight year old at a birthday party. A drive by shooting outdoors where the whole world saw the car drive by and nobody would cooperate with the prosecution and in the murder of an eight year old

So I hope that part of this 21st century police strategies conversation that we’re having includes getting people to cooperate with law enforcement. So you can hold people to the exact same standard regardless of the race of the victim because let me tell you what my goal is.

My goal is for witnesses to feel comfortable cooperating. But here’s my other goal and I’m out of time but I’m going to share it with you. I want us to get to the point where we lament the death, the murder of a black female like Nell Lindsey just as much if it is at the hands of an abusive husband which it was, as we would have it been at the hand of a white cop.

I’d like to get to the point where we’re equally outraged at the loss of life and I hope we can get there.
