3:12 am
>> this particular topic is something that is really dear to my heart. because i was robbed and shot in my head. and if that wasn't enough, i look up and i was staring down the barrel of another gun. and this time it wasn't the barrel of a gun from someone that was trying to rob me. this time looking down the barrel of the police. >> ryan quatrimani, you are the son of a former police officer is that right? >> actually recently retired. i think there are b p officers. you know there is plenty of corrupt police officers. but i think, obama hasn't done a decent job at helping the african-american communities. i think hillary clinton is part of that. but i do support our police. >> earlier comment about police officers, you know versus the black lives matter, african-american community. one is a choice, you have a choice to be a cop. you sign that. you go through training for that. ain't no choice being black. trump has normalized this talk

je danger. >> to say trump tore our country apart at the scenes and created this racial division. no way. president obama was the one in the white house for eight years, race relations have been worse than ever in this country. let's look at who is in office, an african-american man who has torn apart this country. we need to look at that. >> to say that race relations have gotten as bad as they have ever been under president obama shows a lack of historical depth. division. and donald trump's rhetoric, this otherism. builds into that narrative that has long been the narrative of american society. while there were passionate disagreements, one issue united this group. debt. many told me that they can't repay their student loans which means they're putting off decisions like buying a house or starting a family. scott they're looking for answers from these candidates.
