SENATOR WARREN NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE TO CRIMINAL JUSTICE OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES FOR “RACIST” COMMENT

NEEDHAM, MA – U.S. Senate candidate Beth Lindstrom issued the following statement in response to Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s outrageous remarks against our criminal justice system in the United States.

“Senator Warren’s description of our criminal justice system as ‘racist . . . front to back’ is the type of rhetoric that divides us as Americans. Words like this are polarizing and divisive, completely used for personal political gain for 2020, without regard for how they sound to the many good people in Massachusetts and around the country who are punishing criminals, keeping us safe and administering justice. Senator Warren needs to apologize to every police officer, judge, corrections department employee, probation worker and the many other honest and decent people in our criminal justice system who have been smeared by her alienating and careless rhetoric.”
