Cenk Uygur interviews Jessica Hollie, a community activist from Oakland, Calif., whose city council testimony about her fear of police violence against black men — especially after the city hired former LAPD Chief William Bratton — was misinterpreted by CBS News online as an expectant mother’s fear of gun violence.


“The city of Oakland has used its money time and time again to put more beat cops out on the street,” Hollie says, rather than investing in better crime labs or highly trained detectives. “What you have are people being arrested on the street for the individual bias of an officer.”
