"the o'reilly factor is on." tonight. >>s it is hard to read an article and avoid that we live in a culture that hates women, just hates us. >> the article is a fraud. the rolling stone can't back up rape accusations at the university of virginia. we have a history and legacy of people not being treated fairly in all walks of life. >> president obama talking about race on the black entertainment tv network. are hi words polarizing? the human eye will analyze. >> i think everyone is trying to do their job. of course parents want to teep
5:01 pm
their children to be law abiding. >> the mayor of new york city wants all their kids to be law abiding. maybe mayor be blazio should be the mayor of oz. >> caution, you are about to end the no spin zone. "the o'reilly factor" begins right now. >> i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. why grand juries give police the benefit of the doubt. that is the jub oekt thf evening's talking points moments. back in 1993 jesse jackson was quoted by "the new york times" as saying this, there is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved. reverend jackson was just being honest, putting forth that many
5:02 pm
americans feel uneasy in the presence of young black males, especially in the inner city. african-americans make up 13% of the american population, but 36% of the prison population. whites, 63% of the general, 33% of prison inmates. hispanics, 17% of the general, 22% of prisoners. you can see crimes committed by blacks dominate the statistics. african-americans commit more murders than whites, even though the population difference is huge. so that is the primary reason that grand juries give the police the benefit of the doubt when there's an incident in the black community. the high crime rate there permeates. also most americans understand that police work is difficult. right now there are about 670,000 law enforcement agents in america. according to the fbi in 2013, the last stats available, almost 50,000 police officers were
5:03 pm
assaulted. 76 cops died on the job. so there's no question that police work is intense, especially in poor neighborhoods. we're all human beings, and we all form general impressions about life. sad to say the overt impression formed about young black males who act and speak in a certain way is negative. it may not be fair, but it's reality. faced with that, some police officers unfairly target young black males, and those officers must be stopped. but most cops try to be fair. i really believe that. many politicians are too cowardly to tell you what talking points has just stated. they all know the truth. they all know the stats, but they refuse to discuss the core problems, poor education, poor family structure and an attitude of defiance towards law enforcement. listen to new york city mayor bill de blasio. >> there's something fundamental we have to get at hoor.
5:04 pm
it's not going helped by accusing either the community or the police of having bad intention or not doing their job. in fact, i think everyone is trying to do their job. of course communities want to keep themselves safe. of course parents want to teach their children to be law abiding. >> most parents do try to teep their children to be law abiding. as mr. de blasio knows, the collapse of the traditional family in african-american precincts means fathers are not around, mothers are overwhelmed an parental guidance is scant. for the mayor to claim that the parental unit in general is unified in supporting law enforcement is absurd. rather than discuss the core problems that lead to confrontations, politicians like de blasio demonize the police and refuse to maj judgments about personal behavior. that empowers chaotic young people not held accountable for a very young age, then when they finally go over the line they wind up in prison or in the
5:05 pm
morgue. the truth is the government cannot control personal behavior. only peer pressure can. only united neighborhoods can. when the regular folks come together and say enough, when they support the police by turning in violent people, when they speak out against teenage girls becoming pregnant, and when they encourage solid family values, that's when the underglass crime problem will begin to subside. one final thing, when you hear someone say they want to have a, quote, conversation about race. that often means they want to talk about things that happened in america 150 years ago. they don't really want to solve the problem that exists today. for the top story, kevin powell and reverend jack degraph a fox news analyst. where am i going wrong, specifically? >> your entire premise is false. the notion that this is a crime problem founded by weak -- funded by or fueled by weak
5:06 pm
families is totally inaccurate. racism is alive in america. a lot of people don't want to talk about racism. you're making this is a law enforcement problem. it's not a law enforcement problem. it's an allocation of resources problem, a justice problem. >> law enforcement and justice, i hate to inform you reverend are tied in together. >> not in our community. that's the whole point. >> do you believe that most police officers in america don't like you because of the color of your skin? >> that's irrelevant. >> no, it's not. that's the key question. >> i'm concerned when i'm in the presence of most police officers in america. when a police officer walks towards me, i don't see a friend walking towards me. >> do you know 9 99.9% of interactions with police result in no violence? >> of course i know that. if a policeman could shoot a
5:07 pm
12-year-old because he couldn't distinguish whether he was a 12-year-old or 20-year-old on two seconds' notice. >> mistakes are made. >> there are white people who live in public housing who have never been shot accidentally by a policeman. >> you do believe police come in an target black people. >> i didn't say that. that's what i'm taking away from you. >> what i believe and others in our community believe we're at risk in a way that other americans -- >> because cops target blacks. >> most cops -- the system has a different value toward black live which is why black lives matter. >> i couldn't disagree with you more. do you believe most american police agents, 670,000 of you don't like you because of the color of your skin? >> i believe we live in a country that is so rooted in racism it permeates every aspect of the society. >> how does that define itself? am i a racist, do i come across as someone who doesn't like black people?
5:08 pm
>> since you ask the question, even your opening memo, the way you present all that stuff about black people, i could say the young white males committed most mass shootings. >> do you dispute the statistics i put forth? >> actually i do. if you look at crimes from wall street crimes. a lot of times it's white people doing the crimes. >> you believe police don't arrest whites. >> i believe people conveniently manipulate statistics to to prove their agenda. >> these are fbi stats. >> i know people who work for the fbi. those are not accurate stats. >> did you know black americans commit 1,000 more murders in american than white americans. >> sir, what i also know. >> am i racist for pointing that out. >> violence pervades every part
5:09 pm
of this society. >> here is what i would say to you with all due respect. my thing is, are we going to have a real issue about racism, not the 150 years ago, but in 2014. you asked the question, do people feel threatened. think about it. i saw police officers as my friend because that's how i was socialized. when i got beat up by a police officer when 15 years old, a white police officer and i probably weighed about 90 pounds. i was perceived to be a threat, some sort of big man. i was 5'2" maybe, that sent a message that somehow or another as a young black male. >> one police did -- >> the problem is, if this was happening to white males in this country at the record it's happening to michael brown, tamir rice, akai gurley. >> michael brown attacked that police officer.
5:10 pm
>> it is in my judgment and the judgment of many in our community this, they took john gotti alive, they took lee harvey as would alive. even our criminals are treated differently than white criminals. there are white criminals. >> pretty far out there. last word. >> it's not far out there. we have a serious issue on racism. there are black people out there, asian people out there because they understand this is a problem that affects everyone in society. the older generations unfortunately are holding on to racism. young people of all different backgrounds. >> you guys are generalizing a lot. >> in new york they're shutting down macy's and toys "r" us. this conversation will change as you feel the economic and other effects, political and economic and people in our community. >> gentlemen, we appreciate it. weighing in on why minority crime remains so intense. rape accusations on university
5:11 pm
of virginia. the factor is coming right back. i have the worst cold with this runny nose.
5:12 pm
5:13 pm
i better take something. dayquill cold and flu doesn't treat your runny nose. seriously? alka-seltzer plus cold and cough fights your worst cold symptoms plus your runny nose.
5:14 pm
oh, what a relief it is. to our lead story, why grand juries are more sympathetic to the police. joining us from washington, mary katherine hammonds and juan wynn. their claim that this selective law enforcement can't explain dead bodies. when you're dead, you're dead. blacks in america at 13% kill 1,000 more people than whites at 63%. so i think we've shattered all that myth and we have established that there is an intensity for the police in the black precincts, the poverty precincts that doesn't exist in the white precincts. that's why a lot of these confrontations happen. am i wrong? >> no. i think you're exactly right.
5:15 pm
i'm disappointed that they don't acknowledge -- >> they won't acknowledge it. >> here is the thing. i think there's lots to argue with you about. but i think the fact of family breakdown, the fact of violent crime. they start talking about wall street crime. murder, assault, rape, is disproportionate in the black community. that's not an excuse in terms of race and in terms of then treating people who -- especially poor black communities which is where this is concentrated. it's not fair for police to target people, harass them and kill them, bill. nobody would say that's okay. >> no. but you can understand why a grand jury hearing evidence comes in with an attitude of, look, it's very difficult to police in these areas. mistakes are going to be made. i think mistakes were made in ferguson, missouri. i do -- but i wasn't opposed to what the grand jury came back
5:16 pm
with. staten island a little different. a little different. but i think the people that were watching here protesting are like the reverend and mr. powell. they refuse to see the reality of the situation, mary katherine. they will not see it. they will not cop to it. it's everybody else's fault but the people committing the murders. >> i think citing those statistics is fine in talking about that part of the problem as juan and you both did and underlying conditions in the community is fine. i don't want to ignore other stats that the nypd over 15 years had 179 fatalities and three indictments and one conviction. the level is very, very low. there are a couple reasons for that. one, the public is deferential to the police force because they believe they're protectors. that's good. we want public trust in that. there's also who is involved in the grand jury? only the prosecutor who has to work day in, day out with police officers. some have suggested this is a conflict of interest and maybe
5:17 pm
you need a special prosecutor in these cases. when you have a system that goes after regular people in huge numbers, they're the ham sandwiches but never finds themselves worthy of ham sandwichdom, that's the problem. >> you want to change the grand jury system. >> we do need to address that part of the problem because talking about it as if -- i don't want to talk about it as if young black men are forgone criminals because that doesn't help the problem. that's not going to help anybody. >> i trust eric holder's justice department, if thee see shenanigans in new york with the staten island thing will bring their own charges which is why they have that, juan. i want to get back to the perception. i only have a minute left. i'll give you both 30 and 30. you present overwhelming evidence that the police are not racist, that they're not violent in america, that the problem am african-americans is way more intense than the other groups
5:18 pm
and you're called a racist. they ignore it. throw it right out the window. go ahead, juan. >> the thing s i'm not throwing it out the window at all. i've written books about it, written columns about it. i want people in the civil rights groups to march against the drug dealers, against the criminals, against the thugs. >> that's right. >> what mary katherine just said about a criminal system, the grand jury system being broken is on target when the prosecutors don't introduce evidence, rely on the word of the cops. the dead people don't come in to testify. >> if you have corruption, the federal government and fbi was all over ferguson. >> scott walker, a good republican in wisconsin said we're going to have to have independent investigations of police shootings. the grand jury system isn't working. >> real quick, mary katherine. >> justice is supposed to be blind. personal interactions sometimes aren't. when you go into the courtroom it's a duty to put that away. if we have a system favoring
5:19 pm
police officers, you're incentivizing more bad behavior in the future. directly ahead, megyn kelly on the terrible crime of rape. charles kron knauer and do other athletes really understand what they're protesting against up ahead. (woman) the constipation and belly pain
5:20 pm
feel like a knot. how can i ease this pain? (man) when i can't go, it's like bricks piling up. i wish i could find some relief. (announcer) ask your doctor about linzess-- a once-daily capsule for adults with ibs with constipation or chronic idiopathic constipation. linzess is thought to help calm pain-sensing nerves and accelerate bowel movements. it helps you proactively manage your symptoms. do not give linzess to children under 6, and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain especially with bloody or black stools the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe.
5:21 pm
if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. bottom line, ask your doctor about linzess today. we're for an opens you internet for all.sing. we're for creating more innovation and competition. we're for net neutrality protection. now, here's some news you may find even more surprising. we're comcast.
5:22 pm
the only isp legally bound by full net neutrality rules. tonight accusations of rape and player khan women. "rolling stone" magazine miss reported a story whereby fraternity kids at the university of virginia were accused by gang rape. the story was written by sabrina ruben eardley. >> i think you've done a tremendous act of public service and i'm grateful.
5:23 pm
it's hard to read an article and avoid the conclusion that just hates women, just hates us. >> well, the rolling stone story turned out to be problematic and ms. angel retracted her statement. the bigger picture, women feel under assault. june. to let fact checking define the narrative would be a muj his take. it's no accident that the article came out and it became apparent that there were tangible things we need to discuss. the anchor of the kelly files now. this journalist, it doesn't really matter whether the story was true or not. >> how about that other woman? it's proof that america hates women. >> but you have to understand the narrative that's developing now. white america is racist and the police are gunning down black men. that's been in play now for a month. now, america hates women and it's open season to rape them all.
5:24 pm
>> right. >> you see what's happening. this is not by accident. it's not.r left wants to tear t fabric of the country down. i wrote a book on it, "culture warrior." now they have a toe hold to do it. >> i don't think that's anything new. rolling stone, they sent a reporter to harvard, to yale, to other elite universities trying to find a rape story. she set out to find somebody who would talk about rape as a problem on college campus. she found this woman at uva. rolling stone even today in the expanded apology of the shoddy reporting said this alleged victim jackie, she spoke about her assault. her friends believed it. the rape activists on campus believed it. she spoke at the rape activist seminars. so what? that doesn't mean anything. that proves nothing. to your point, i talked about this on the show on friday. remember the duke fake rape case? >> absolutely, very similar.
5:25 pm
>> everybody jumped on that story as well. it's three white defendants who gang raped a black victim in the city of durham, it must be true. those college frat boys, they're jerks. we know they're guilty. they're white, privileged at duke. this is a 50/50 split community, white and black. she must be telling the truth. brit human sent me koun to report with an open mind. there i was back in the day. let me tell you, as a lawyer -- i was only a couple years out of my legal career, i saw tons of holes in that case. i reported on them and got new evidence in the case. what happened? people said i was a racist because i was taking the side of the white male defendants. i wasn't taking anybody's sides. i was showing people what the evidence was. that i was anti poverty, on the side of the rich instead of the poor. that i was anti feminist because i wasn't accepting these rape
5:26 pm
claims verbatim. boloney, i had guts because my boss told me to go down and report with an open mind. most reporters need to do that. they were afraid to challenge this woman's story, lest they be called certain things. >> number one, we're not diminishing at all the terrible problem of rape in this country. >> obviously not. this undermines those terrible claims. >> that's right. the boy who cried wolf thing. >> i don't know if she's not telling the truth. but the way it's emerged and the way rolling stone handled it, undermined this woman terribly. if she is telling the truth' oh. >> if she is, nobody will know about it. >> there is a movement, the first segment we had there, there is a movement to try to convince some people -- they're not going to convince me, not going to convince you, that this is a horrible, oppressive, country. that the white privileged people
5:27 pm
hate and want to hurt -- thekg powerful want to hurt the blacks and the poor. schools. you hear about some schools that teach every class from the perspective ofññtorp america's victims, that spends a year talking about the native americans and how badly they were treated, a year in some of these schools in new york city, devote to how bad we treated them. on it goes grade to grade to grade. if you reject in any way that narrative as indicative of what our country stands for you haven't proven your liberal bona fides and even worse a racist, someone who hates women. >> meagig megyn kelly will be w you in about 35 minutes. the senate releases a torture report tomorrow. already it's very controversial. we'll have karl rove. later, charles krauthamer on
5:28 pm
whether people protesting the treatment of african-americans really know what they're talking about. we hope you stay tuned for those we hope you stay tuned for those reports. what'd you guys do today? the usual! the usual!

5:29 pm
5:30 pm
5:31 pm
impact segment. tomorrow the senate intelligence committee will release a report about alleged torture after the 9/11 attack. former president george w. bush is standing behind the cia. >> we're fortunate to have men
5:32 pm
and women who work hard at the cia serving on our behalf. these are patriots. whatever the report says, if it diminishes their contributions to the country it's way off base. >> joining us fox news analyst karl rove. this is a theme show tonight. we have the police hunting down young black men and killing them. we've got mass rapes of american women and society hates women, and now we're a country of torturers who pick up innocent muslims and dunk them in water until they almost die. this is the narrative that's put forth by the far left, is it not? >> well, sure. with the deliberate intent of diminishing the central intelligence agency and further undermining the very concept of a war against terrorism. >> when you see -- you're not going to convince the left that coerced interrogation is worthy. you're never going to do it. people are not going to change
5:33 pm
their minds, even though the report itself is pretty scathing toward the cia. it doesn't mention all the lives saved, and there were thousands of lives saved by the information they got by waterboarding khalid sheikh mohammed. so it's a pretty scathing report. >> we aren't going to convince the hard left. we do need to remind the american people, the vast majority of whom are not part of the hard left that these techniques worked in a dark moment for our country to keep our country safe. president bush would not have said what he said on sunday did he not believe from his personal experience that these techniques developed useful information, vital information that kept america safe. we know publicly about one example of how these techniques helped make america safe by helping us kilo sam ma bin laden. you may remember what happened is that two interrogators, a guy
5:34 pm
was swept up, caught on the battlefield, low level operative. they interrogated him. they then went to khalid sheikh mohammed and said is this guy important. they went then to mike hayden, the then director of the cia and said director hayden, ksm and zu befrnlthsata say these guys aren't important. we believe they're hiding something. we think this guy is important. he becomes the guy that when they trace him and trace his relationships and trace where he goes, bring us to osama bin laden's compound in abad bad and eventually led to his death. there are plenty of examples of how this saved people's lives that are not known to the public and will never be known to the public. people who want to diminish the cia, regardless on the security of the cia, they spent $40
5:35 pm
million in six years coming to this moment and they're desperate before they lose control of the senate intelligence committee to smear the cia. shame on them for doing so. >> tomorrow we'll get a republican member of the senate intelligence committee on "the factor." from what i understand, all the interrogation methods we used the senate intel committee knew about it. >> sure. they were briefed about them. nancy pelosi was briefed about them, bob graham, the then chairman of the intelligence committee. only one member out of that bipartisan groups on the house and senate intel communities, raised questions about it, jane harmon of california. ever one else knew about it. they knew about some of the things that this was getting -- the government did to allow us to keep america save. >> mr. rove, we'll continue reporting on that tomorrow. when we come back, brit hume. we'll play some clips. hume and i will analyze in just a few minutes. could protect you from cancer?
5:36 pm
what if one push up could prevent heart disease?
5:37 pm
one. wishful thinking, right? but there is one step you can take to help prevent another serious disease- pneumococcal pneumonia. one dose of the prevnar 13 ® vaccine can help protect you ... from pneumococcal pneumonia, an illness that can cause coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and may even put you in the hospital. prevnar 13 is used in adults 50 and older to help prevent infections from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13 if you've had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients. if you have a weakened immune system, you may have a lower response to the vaccine. common side effects were pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site. limited arm movement, fatigue, head ache muscle or joint pain, less appetite, chills, or rash. even if you've already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, prevnar 13 ® may help provide additional protection. get this one done. ask your healthcare professional about prevnar 13 ® today.
5:38 pm
5:39 pm
giving an interview to the black entertainment television network. the chat was released late today. joining us from washington, brit hume. the first clip deals with hair cans being treated fairly. >> this country is at its best
5:40 pm
when everybody is being treated fairly. it is particularly important for people to feel like they're being treated fairly by law enforcement and police because the consequences when they're not treated fairly can be deadly. >> but that's just a pie in the sky. life isn't fair. countries aren't fair. people make mistakes. i don't know where he's going with that. >> well, there's an overall problem, as i see it, with the president's analysis of this situation that includes these african-american men who were killed in encounters with the police. i think it's this. the president is looking to change things so that this won't happen again. but his entire focus is on one side of the occasion. that is, on the behavior of police which undoubtedly could be more improved. they could be more effective and
5:41 pm
skillful in dealing with minorities that they're protecting and policing. he never talks about the pathologies in the black communities which lead to high crime rates which you described earlier in the program, what you and juan discussed. he never talks about the behaviors by young african-american men that may lead police to be afraid of them. he never talks about the fact that the mere statistics on crime in these areas may make police extremely wear of african-americans they may encounter on the streets. that's a problem. the cops could do a better job no doubt. what about the parents -- >> there are no parents. >> what about the mayors and officials responsible for trying to improve the conditions in these neighborhoods. >> they don't talk about it either. >> he doesn't want to seem to deal with those issues. >> that's what i was trying to get across. there's a reason -- when you're tense and nervous and suspicious and frightened, mistakes happen far more frequently.
5:42 pm
that's what's happening to the police. they go in and their adrenaline is going because they feel they're endanger, apparently in certain neighborhoods. what hume said is very wise because it continues along that vein in this interview. >> if you look at, after what happened with michael if you looked at what happened after trayvon, if you look at the decision after eric garner, i'm being pretty explicit about my concern and being pretty explicit about the fact that this is a systemic problem that black folks and latinos and others are not just making this up. >> it isn't really a systemic problem when you look at the statistics with 99.9% of all police interactions nod leading to any of this. so i think the president is playing to his crew. that's what i think he's doing. >> what worries me about this a little bit is the president may now feel that the things have gone so badly and he's now so widely unpopular, especially
5:43 pm
among whites, his support among the african-american community remains extremely strong, nearly unanimous, he cannot really afford to say anything to alienate that community. that's not going to win over the whites who are already resistant to him and opposed to him. it may alienate some of the african-american support he has which is the strongest basis of support he has. >> i don't think he's calculating that. but he always plays to his crew. >> you're suggesting he does it automatically. that may be the case. i would say it is not his -- his view of this is not balanced. >> all right. the final one is the president looks to the future. >> i want my grandsons to be treated like anybody else's grandsons. if they're messing up, i think they should be corrected. first be corrected by me of their mother or their father,
5:44 pm
but i don't want them to be subjected to the kind of constant bias that makes them feel as if this is not their home. >> do you know what i'd say about that, bill? if the parenting that he described, which i suspect his grandchildren will get, were applied in the african-american community more broadly, a lot of those kids growing up wary of the cops and afraid to be mistreated by them wouldn't have to worry about that. i'm not saying the cops aren't at fault in some of these instances. you see he strayed away and talked about bias. that is where he lets us down. >> brit hume everybody. krauthammer is on deck. the town that hates christmas. we'll take you there in just a few moments. lls ♪

5:48 pm
tonight more protests in pro sports about race. tonight cleveland cavaliers forward lebron james wore a shirt saying "i can't breathe." that on the heels of the five st. louis rams players raising their hands in sympathy of the hands up don't shoot movement. joining me from washington, charles krauthammer. i think people in the public eye have a responsibility to know what they're talking about before they protest on the company dime. am i wrong? >> there are people in the public eye who all the time talk about things they know nothing about. the leading democratic candidate for the presidency, the former
5:49 pm
secretary of state said a couple weeks ago, don't let anybody tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs. presidents often talk about things they know nothing about, senators, congressmen. i might say even talk show hosts and even i -- perhaps even i have once said something that makes no sense, although i can't remember one offhand. >> there's a difference though. if you're going to throw in as a professional athlete or an actor or on stage, by the way -- not talking about in your private life. not talking about that. if you're in an arena where people have paid money to come and see you and you're working for a team, and then you make a statement, a political statement as these statements are, i don't mind that if you defend the statement articulately. the rams players could not do that because they didn't even know that don't shoot -- hands up don't shoot was debunked by
5:50 pm
the forensic evidence in ferguson. they didn't even know that. they thought that "hands up, don't shoot" is what actually happened. their protest was based on a fallacy. lebron james. he's a smart man. i saw him last week. he may get a statement -- i'm not sure whether mr. james -- i don't know what his point of view is and i think he needs to say what his point of view is. >> well, i think that t-shirt speaks for what he's -- i assume -- >> but does he think the grand jury is corrupt? does he think all police as our lead guest tonight are targeting blac blacks? is he there? or is he saying i don't agree with this singular decision? i don't know. >> i don't expect an elaborate legal exjees is on the case from the best ballplayer in the nba. but if he wants to say by having a jersey on, a t-shirt on, that
5:51 pm
there was a case in which a man was choked to death or died while being held by police that there's something about that that disturbs him. that i assume is the message of that t-shirt that is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. >> right. >> and it's a perfectly reasonable use of his celebrity. look, scientists use their celebrity to make a political point. priests do. experts do. movie stars do. we've sort of accepted that in the culture. you can ask them under cross-examination to explain what they say. and often the movie stars can just have these inan explanations. but to use a platform to make a case, that's perfectly fine. >> all right. but if i were a sports -- i would say in the press conference what do you mean? what exactly is your beef here?
