Kamala Harris on Criminal Justice 2006

Senator Kamala Harris is the candidate for Vice President for the 2020 Democratic Party. She was a city and state district attorney before being elected to the Senate. In the era of reform by slogan (does ‘Defund the Police!’ mean defund the police?), Senator Harris has been criticized for participating in the criminal justice system as a DA. During her career, she has advocated for what she calls smart policing, not defunding policing. Perhaps this clip from 2006 when she participated in a panel on emerging Black leaders provides some context for her views on criminal justice.
