1/25/19 Jim Bovard on William Barr’s Support for FBI Murderers

Jim Bovard talks about President Trump’s appointee for Attorney General, William Barr, and his support for the Marshals and FBI agents who killed members of the Weaver family in 1992. Barr was Attorney General during the Bush Sr. administration, and helped get the sniper who killed Vicki Weaver acquitted after the deadly standoff at Weaver’s home. Scott and Bovard talk about police violence in general, wondering why white victims and groups like Black Lives Matter seem unwilling to unite after incidents like this or the Bundy standoff in Oregon. Scott sees them as opportunities to present a united front against the real enemy, an all-powerful government that abuses its citizens everyday, even if it isn’t always so well publicized.
