rtising. i've seen what can happen as
the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie and tied him to a split-rail fence, then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action
was attorney general. that's why it's cortez masto who's been endorsed by law enforcement, not joe heck. and her crackdown on domestic violence and human trafficking earned the praise of governor sandoval. don't believe joe heck's trash. catherine cortez masto's kept nevada safe. i'm catherine cortez masto and i approve this message. . ."

- you are being watched. the government has a secret system-- a machine that spies on you every hour of every day. i know because i built it. i designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything... violent crimes involving ordinary people, people like you, crimes the government considered irrelevant. but i needed a partner-- someone with the skills to intervene. hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. you will never find us. but victim or perpetrator, if your number's up, we'll find you.
