TODAYS SURPRISING JOB NUMBERS.

"ALL IN" STARTS RIGHT NOW.

>>> GOOD EVENING FROM NEW YORK.

IM CHRIS HAYES.

AMERICANS ARE ON THE STREET IN

PROTEST AGAIN TONIGHT.

11 DAYS SINCE THE KILLING OF

GEORGE FLOYD BY A MINNEAPOLIS

POLICE OFFICER.

SO FAR THE POLICE HAVE BEEN

PEACEFUL.

WELL KEEP AN EYE ON THE

SITUATION THROUGHOUT THE

EVENING.

BECAUSE WITH THE MASS PROTESTS

WERE SEEING TONS OF POLICE

ACTIVITY AND PEOPLE ARE

SMARTPHONES OUT ON THE STREETS

REGARDING THE POLICE DOING THEIR

JOBS.

IT IS GIVEN US MORE OF A PICTURE

OF WHAT POLICING IN AMERICA

LOOKS LIKE THAN WE ALMOST EVER

GET EVEN IF, IN FAIRNESS, IT IS

NOT PERFECTLY REPRESENTED.

AND AS I START I WANT TO BE

CLEAR UP FRONT THAT POLICING IN

AMERICA IS VERY DANGEROUS AND

VERY DANGEROUS IN THIS MOMENT.

THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL OFFICERS

SHOT AND INJURED, RETIRED ST.

LOUIS POLICE CAPTAIN DAVID DORN

WAS KILLED RESPONDING TO AN

ALARM AT A PAWN SHOP THERE WEEK.

IN BUFFALO, NEW YORK, WHICH

WELL DISCUSS SHORTLY, THREE

OFFICERS SERIOUSLY INJURED WHEN

AN SUV JUST PLOWED INTO A GROUP

OF LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT WERE OUT

ON THE STREET.

BEING A POLICE OFFICER IS NOT AN

EASY JOB BY MY MEANS.

IT IS CERTAINLY NOT AN EASY JOB

ON OUR CONDITIONS OF MAXIMUM

STRESS.

IT IS VERY HARD TO LOOK AT THE

VIDEOS WEVE BEEN SEEING FROM

ALL ACROSS COUNTRY AND

PARTICULARLY THIS ONE VIDEO

WERE GOING TO SHOW YOU WHICH I

MAY HAVE SEEN, AND NOT CONCLUDE

THERE IS SOMETHING DEEPLY BROKEN

IN THE POLICING OF AMERICA.

SOMETHING AT THE CORE OF THE

CRISIS THIS NATION IS NOW

EXPERIENCING.

THIS IS AN UPSETTING AND GRAPHIC

VIDEO TO BE BARNED.

IN DOWNTOWN BUFFALO, 75-YEAR-OLD

MARTIN GUTHO APPROACHED A GROUP

OF OFFICERS JUST WALKING UP TO THEM.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

>> MOVE!

>> HES BLEEDING.

>> HES BLEEDING OUT OF HIS EAR.

>> GET A MEDIC.

>> THAT IS JUST 15 SECONDS OF

THAT VIDEO THAT YOU SAW.

AND IN JUST THOSE 15 SECONDS

THAT SCENE IS AN ENTIRE SYLLABUS

ON HOW IT CREATED A WHOLE THAT

IS WORSE THAN THE SUM OF ITS

PARTS.

FIRST YOU HAVE AN OFFICER

SHOVING AN ELDERLY PROTESTER

ENTIRELY UNPROVOKED FOR NO

EARTHLY JUSTIFYING REASON.

WHICH RESULTS IN A 75-YEAR-OLD

MAN HITTING THE GROUND WITH

BLOOD POOLING FROM HIS HEAD ON

TO THE CONCRETE AS YOU SEE

THERE.

AND THEN THERE IS A MOMENT WHERE

ONE OF THE POLICE OFFICERS GOES

TO HELP HIM.

WHICH OF COURSE IS THE NATURAL

HUMAN REACTION.

YOU COULD SEE ONE OF THE

OFFICERS BENDS DOWN TO HELP AND

IT IS ALMOST PRIMAL, THE

REACTION.

BEFORE ANOTHER OFFICER STOPS

HIM.

PUTS HIS HAND ON HIS BACK AND

PUSHES HIM FORWARD AND I WOULD

BET THAT IS REACTION TO STOP AND

HELP THAT ALL OF THE OFFICERS

WOULD HAVE IF THEY WERE NOT IN

UNIFORM IN THAT CIRCUMSTANCE.

I HAVE TO BELIEVE IF THOSE

OFFICERS YOU SEE THERE WERE

WALKING DOWN THE SIDEWALK JUST

AS NORMAL CIVILIANS AND SAW

SOMEONE PUSH AN OLD MAN AND THAT

OLD MAN FELL AND HIS HEAD WAS

BLEEDING THEY WOULD PROBABLY

STOP TO HELP AND ATTEND TO THE

OLD MAN ON THE SIDE OF THE

STREET.

BUT NOT IN THIS CONTEXT.

IN THIS CONTEXT THAT HUMAN

IMPULSE IS LITERALLY YANKED

BACK.

PHYSICALLY ANOTHER OFFICER PULLS

HIM BACK FROM HELPING THE

BLEEDING ELDERLY MAN.

AND EVERYONE THERE, ALL OF THE

OFFICERS, THEY ARE SO FOCUSED ON

CLOSING RANKS IN A LITERAL AND

METAPHORICAL SENSE, THEY CANNOT

RECOGNIZE OR WILL NOT RECOGNIZE

WHAT NIR BRETHREN JUST DID AND

WHAT HUMANITY AND COMPASSION AND

SERVING AND PROTECTING IS

REQUIRED OF THEM IN THAT MOMENT.

NO.

INSTEAD THEY ARE ON WAR FOOTING.

CALLING FOR A MEDIC, WHICH THEY

DO.

THEY KEEP MARCHING FORWARD AND

YOU MAY EXPECT AFTERWARDS TO SEE

THEM WALKING TO SOME HUGE SEA OF

UNRULY PROTESTERS THEYRE GEARED

UP TO FACE BUT THEY JUST GO

AFTER THIS ONE GUY.

THERE IS BARELY ANYONE ELSE EVEN

THERE.

IT IS JUST A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE

WALKING DOWN THE STREET.

ALL THAT IS RIGHT THERE.

THE GEAR, THE MILITARIZATION,

THE WARRIOR MINDSET, THE

INABILITY TO POLICE EACH OTHER.

ALL OF THE WORSE IMPULSES

SUCCEEDING OVER THE BEST

IMPULSES AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF

THE BUFFALO POLICE DEPARTMENT

HAS THE GALL TO INITIALLY CLAIM

THAT THE 75-YEAR-OLD MAN WAS

INJURED WHEN I TRIPPED AND FELL

AS THOUGH ON HIS OWN.

EVEN THOUGH TWO POLICE OFFICERS

WERE SUSPENDED THEY SUGGEST THE

MAN JUST SLIPPED.

THANKFULLY MARTIN GUTHOS

ATTORNEY SAID HE IS INTO SERIOUS

BUT STABLE CONDITION.

ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION NO. INKN

THIS IS VIOLENCE AND THIS

VIOLENCE HAS BEEN VISITED ON

AFRICAN-AMERICAN, LATINO AND

BROWN AND BLACK FOLKS FOR YEARS

AND DECADES AND EVEN LONGER.

THINK ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING

NOW WHILE THE CAMERAS ARE OUT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENS WHEN

THEYRE NOT THERE.

WEVE SEEN SO MANY DISTURBING

VIDEOS IN THE PAST 11 DAYS IT IS

HARD TO KEEP TRACK OF VIOLENCE

BY THE POLICE.

AND I KNOW POLICE, THE POLICE IS

A MASSIVE OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF

A TERM TO DESCRIBE HUNDREDS OFS

OF FELLOW AMERICANS.

I TALK TO POLICE OFFICERS A FAIR

AMOUNT.

IVE REPORTED ON POLICING FOR

YEARS AND I KNOW THERE ARE SO

MANY GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE

WEARING THE BADGE.

DECENT AND COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE

EMBEDDED IN THE COMMUNITY THEY

POLICE AND AS INDIVIDUALS AND

HUMAN BEINGS AND THOSE STORIES

ARE COMPLICATED STORIES BUT WHAT

WERE SEEING WITH OUR POLICE

REMINDS ME SO MUCH OF WHAT

HAPPENED WITH ANOTHER

INSTITUTION, A INSTITUTION I

FEEL CLOSE TO, THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

AND I COME AT THIS FROM A

PERSONAL PLACE.

MY FATHER WAS A JESUIT

SEMINARIAN, BEFORE HE MET MY

MOM.

AND WHEN THE CRISIS OF CHILD

SEXUAL ABUSE, THEY WERE A SMALL

SLIVER OF THE PRIESTS BUT WHAT

BECAME CLEAR IS SO MANY OTHER

PRIESTS SIMPLY REFUSED TO STEP

IN.

THEY REFUSED TO POLICE THEIR

BROTHERS.

THEY REFUSED TO GRAPPLE WITH THE

REALITY OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN

FRONT OF THEIR EYES, THE EVIL

COMMITTED IN FRONT OF THEM.

THEY LOOKED THE OTHER WAY.

ME LIED TO THEMSELVES.

THEY FORGAVE TO EASILY AND IT

BECAME DAMN WELL NEAR KILLING

THE CHURCH IN THIS COUNTRY AND

OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE THEY STILL

HAVE NOT RECOVERED.

THERE IS REASON PEOPLE USE THE

CLICHE OF THE BAD APPLE.

YOU HEAR IT ALL OF THE TIME AND

PEOPLE GET IT WRONG.

WELL, YES, THERE ARE BAD APPLES

WHEN TALKING ABOUT POLICE

OFFICERS.

THE WHOLE POINT OF THE CLICHE IS

THAT A FEW BAD APPLES SPOIL THE

BUNCH.

AND THERE IS SOMETHING ROTTING

WITH POLICING IN AMERICA.
