CALM DOWN.

JESSE TYLER.

IT'S NOT YOU.

THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE FINDSRACISM IN FERGUSON.

THEY ALSO FOUND BEAR CRAP IN THEWOODS.

WE ASK THE SERIOUS QUESTION:ARE THERE RACIST COPS?

I'M JUST GOING TO LET YOU SIT INSUSPENSE.

JUST KIDDING.

THEY'RE TOTALLY RACIST.

SO PULL SOMEBODY OVER FOR NOREASON AT ALL.

THIS IS THE "THE NIGHTLY SHOW"!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)♪♪

>> Larry: YEAH!

(AUDIENCE CHANTING LARRY)>> Larry: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I FEEL THE LOVE!

IT IS CAPTAIN AMERICA HERE NIGHTHERE AT THE "THE NIGHTLY

SHOW"!

(LAUGHTER)YES, IT IS.

EVERYONE'S DECKED OUT LIKECAPTAIN AMERICA.

EVERYBODY GOT THE MEMO.

WELCOME TO THE "THE NIGHTLYSHOW."

I'M LARRY WILMORE.

ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDERRELEASED THE FINDINGS OF HIS

INVESTIGATION INTO THE ACTIONSOF POLICE MANY FERGUSON,

MISSOURI.

I'M CURIOUS.

WHATEVER DID HE FIND?

>> THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICERELEASED A 105-PAGE REPORT THAT

OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED WHATPROTESTERS IN FERGUSON,

MISSOURI, HAVE BEEN CLAIMING FORMONTHS, THAT LONG BEFORE BROWN'S

KILLING, FERGUSON POLICETARGETED AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

>> Larry: NO (BLEEP)!

SERIOUSLY, GUYS.

THE REPORT CONCLUDES THEFERGUSON COPS ARE RACIST?

I CAME TO THAT CONCLUSION ONCHAPTER FOUR OF THE REPORT I

PUBLISHED LAST AUGUST.

LARRY WILMORE'S INVESTIGATION OFTHE FERGUSON POLICE

DEPARTMENT -- LET'S SEE --(APPLAUSE)

OH, HERE IT IS.

CHAPTER 4.

RIGHT HERE.

I HAD IT.

CHAPTER 4.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)I'M TELLING YOU.

THAT WAS EXHAUSTIVE RESEARCH.

OKAY.

AND IN OTHER GOOD NEWS, THEDEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE ALSO

ANNOUNCED THAT OFFICER DARRENWILSON WILL NOT FACE FEDERAL

CHARGES FOR KILLING MICHAELBROWN.

WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE IT FREESWILSON UP TO TRAVEL ACROSS THE

COUNTRY IN A VAN SOLVINGMYSTERIES WITH GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.

(LAUGHTER)(AUDIENCE REACTS)

BUT FORGET WILSON, ERIC HOLDER'SGOT SOME TRULY INSANE STATS IN

THIS REPORT.

>> 67% OF FERGUSON'S POPULATIONIS BLACK, BUT BETWEEN 2012 AND

2014, THEY ACCOUNTED FOR 85% OFPEOPLE PULLED OVER BY FERGUSON

POLICE AND 93% OF PEOPLEARRESTED.

WHEN POLICE USED FORCE, NEARLYNINE TIMES OUT OF TEN, THEY USED

IT AGAINST BLACKS.

>> Larry: NINE OUT OF TEN,THEY USED FORCE AGAINST BLACKS?

SO WHO'S THE ONE WHITE GUY?

WHAT DID HE DO?

TRY TO GET IN THE WAY OF THEPOLICE BEATING UP THE NINE BLACK

GUYS?

(LAUGHTER)(APPLAUSE)

FIGURES.

STUPID ONE WHITE GUY.

BUT THE FERGUSON POLICE GO OUTOF THEIR WAY TO ARREST US.

>> AFRICAN-AMERICANS MADE UPOVER 90% OF THOSE CHARGED WITH A

HIGHLY DISCRETIONARY OFFENSEDESCRIBED AS, AND I QUOTE,

"MANNER OF WALKING ALONGROADWAY."

>> Larry: MANNER OF WALKINGALONG THE ROADWAY?

THEY'RE ARRESTING BLACK GUYS FORWALKING?

YOU KNOW, IT'S FUNNY, IT REMINDSME OF THAT OLD STANDUP JOKE --

WHITE PEOPLE WALK LIKE THIS.

"I'M WALKING!"BLACK PEOPLE WALK LIKE THIS.

(SIRENS)WHOA, WHOA!

HEY, HEY!

HEY, GUYS!

I'M DOING A BIT!

I'M DOING A BIT!

(APPLAUSE)I'M DOING A BIT!

AND WORST OF ALL, THEY TURNEDMAN'S BEST FRIEND INTO THE BLACK

MAN'S WORST ENEMY.

>> AND USE OF DOGS BY FERGUSONPOLICE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN

EXCLUSIVELY RESERVED FORAFRICAN-AMERICANS.

IN EVERY CASE IN WHICH FERGUSONPOLICE RECORDS RECORDED THE RACE

OF A PERSON BIT BY A POLICE DOG,THAT PERSON WAS

AFRICAN-AMERICAN.

>> Larry: SICCING DOGS ONBLACK PEOPLE?

THAT'S A LITTLE ON THE NOSE,RACIST POLICE DEPARTMENT.

YOU HAVEN'T COME UP WITHANYTHING NEW IN 50 YEARS?

HARPER LEE IS DROPPING FRESHMATERIAL FASTER THAN YOU.

BUSTING BLACKS HAS EVEN BECOME AGAME TO THE WILEY FERGUSON

COPPERS.

>> SOME OFFICERS EVEN COMPETE TOSEE WHO CAN ISSUE THE LARGEST

NUMBER OF CITATIONS DURING ASINGLE STOP.

A TOTAL THAT AT LEAST IN ONEINSTANCE ROSE AS HIGH AS 14.

>> Larry: 14 CITATIONS IN ONESTOP?

HOW MANY THINGS CAN YOU DO WRONGWHILE DRIVING WHILE BLACK?

LET'S SEE, CHANGING LANES WHILEBLACK, ALMOST EXPIRED TAGS WHILE

BLACK, TALKING BACK WHILE BLACK,HAVING OTHER BLACK PEOPLE IN THE

CAR WHILE BLACK, BEING BLACKWHILE BLACK.

MAN, I CAN ONLY THINK OF SIX!

THESE COMES ARE GOOD!

-- THESE COPS ARE GOOD!

BUT TO BE FAIR, THE COPS AREN'TONLY CITING BLACKS OUT OF SPORT.

THEY'RE ALSO DOING IT AS AMONEY-MAKING SCHEME.

>> TODAY THE CITY GENERATES ASIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF REVENUE

FROM THE ENFORCEMENT OF CODEPROVISIONS.

ALONG WITH TAXES AND OTHERREVENUE STREAMS IN 2010, THE

CITY COLLECTED OVER $1.3 MILLIONIN FINES AND FEES COLLECTED BY

THE COURT.

FOR FISCAL YEAR 2015, FERGUSON'SCITY BUDGET ANTICIPATES THE

REVENUES TO EXCEED $3 MILLION,MORE THAN DOUBLE THE TOTAL FROM

JUST FIVE YEARS PRIOR.

>> Larry: YEE-HAW!

THAR'S GOLD IN THEM THEREBLACKS!

WE STRUCK BLACK GOLD!

(GUNFIRE)I THINK I GOT NINE OF THEM!

(SIREN)WHOA!

GUYS, GUYS!

>> WE HAVE BEEN GETTING A LOT OFCOMPLAINTS ABOUT A BLACK GUY

WAIVING SOME GUNS AROUND.

>> Larry: HOLD ON, HOLD ON.

I'M JUST DOING A BIT.

THEY'RE FINGER GUNS.

>> USING FINGER GUNS ISPROHIBITED BY FERGUSON CITY

ORDINANCE -->> Larry: WE'RE NOT IN

FERGUSON!

WE'RE IN NEW YORK.

I'M DOING A COMEDY SHOW.

>> REALLY?

A COMEDY SHOW?

WITH AN UPSIDE-DOWN MAP!

WHAT'S THE JOKE?

>> Larry: IT'S NOT A JOKE.

IT'S ABOUT HOW YOU SEE THEWORLD.

IT'S ABOUT YOUR PERSPECTIVE.

>> REALLY IN WHAT'S YOURPERSPECTIVE ON THIS $300

UPSIDE-DOWN MAP TICKET?

>> Larry: YOU CAN'T JUST WRITEME A CITATION!

THIS IS MY TIME SLOT!

I'VE HAD IT SINCE JANUARY!

I DIDN'T STEAL ANYTHING!

>> CALM DOWN, SIR.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ONWITH ALL THESE PEOPLE GATHERED

UP THERE.

THIS LOOKS LIKE UNLAWFULASSEMBLY!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)I MEAN, THE ACCOUNTS OF WHAT

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: WE'RE BACK TALKING

ABOUT THE FERGUSON POLICEREPORT.

JOINING US ON THE PANELTONIGHT -- CNN LEGAL ANALYST AND

FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR, SUNNYHOSTIN;

MISSION DIRECTOR OF DREAMDEFENDERS, PHILLIP AGNEW;

POLITICAL DIRECTOR OF GLOBALGRIND, MICHAEL SKOLNIK;

AND COMEDIAN, GODFREY.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)LET'S GET TO IT. SUNNY,

I'M GOING TO START WITH YOUBECAUSE YOU WORKED WITH THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT, SUNNY,FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR,

RIGHT?

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

>> Larry: THE CHANGE THEJUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS

RECOMMENDING, HOW MUCH POWER DOTHEY HAVE TO ENFORCE THE

CHANGES?

WHAT KIND OF ACCOUNTABILITY ISTHERE?

ARE THEY JUST LIKE HELPFULHINTS?

>> NO.

THAT'S WHAT'S INTERESTING.

SO MANY ARE SAYING THE JUSTICEDEPARTMENT MADE THE 2016

RECOMMENDATIONS, NOTHING'S GOINGTO REALLY HAPPEN.

THOSE AREN'T RECOMMENDATIONS.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS GOINGTO FORCE THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND

IF THE FERGUSON CITY POLICEDEPARTMENT DOESN'T AGREE WITH IT

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL SUETHEM.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THE RESULT WILL BE THE SAME.

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT 26RECOMMENDATIONS, THAT'S JUST THE

STARTING POINT.

THEY'RE GOING TO DEMAND THATTHEN PEOPLE WILL ASK FOR A LOT

MORE.

THE MAYOR, THE POLICE CHIEF,EVERYBODY'S GOING TO LOSE THEIR

JOB.

>> YEAH!

>> Larry: 1 THROUGH 20 IS STOPBEING RACIST

(APPLAUSE)>> IT COSTS MONEY TO MAKE THE

REFORMS.

>> Larry: SURE.

NOW THAT THEY CAN'T ASK THERESIDENTS FOR THE MONEY, HOW

WILL THEY AFFORD TO DO IT?

>> Larry: YOU WERE ON THEGROUND IN FERGUSON FOR A WHILE.

DO YOU THINK THE PEOPLE FEELLIKE THEY CAN -- EVEN WITH THESE

REFORMS -- THAT THEY CAN TRUSTTHIS POLICE DEPARTMENT?

BECAUSE THAT'S A RELATIONSHIP,RIGHT?

>> RIGHT.

WELL, I CAN'T SPEAK FOR ALL THEPEOPLE IN FERGUSON, BUT I HIGHLY

DOUBT THERE WILL BE A LOT OFFAITH IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

YOU'VE GOT TO LOOK ALT THEHISTORY OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS IN

THIS COUNTRY.

THEY WERE FIRST FOUNDED AS SLAVEPATROLS AND NOW THEY'RE BEING

USED BY CORPORATE INTERESTS TOKEEP BLACK PEOPLE IN THEIR PLACE

AND MONITOR BEHAVIOR.

>> Larry: YOU HAVE A VERY HIGHVIEW OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS.

>> YEAH, BUT I'M SAYING YOU'REDEALING WITH POLICE DEPARTMENTS

IN FERGUSON AND AROUND THECOUNTRY WHO HAVE A CULTURE OF

CONTEMPT FOR BLACK PEOPLE,LATINO AND POOR PEOPLE,

ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'RE YOUNG.

>> Larry: IF THAT'S THE CASE,WE CAN'T HAVE ANY POLICE IN

THERE.

>> LET ME ASK YOU THIS, THERE'SA LION, YOU CLIP THE NAILS, DO

YOU STILL GO IN THE CAGE WITHTHE LION?

>> Larry: I'M NOT GOING IN THECAGE WITH THE LION UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES!

(LAUGHTER)IT'S STILL A LION!

BUT I THINK SOMETIMES JUST THEAIRING OUT OF THIS INFORMATION

CAN BE HELPFUL, MICHAEL.

AS A WHITE PERSON ON THE PANEL,WHAT DO YOU SAY? YOU HAVE BEEN

INVOLVED IN THIS ISSUE, BUT I'VEALWAYS FELT THIS IS NOT NEW

INFORMATION TO THE PEOPLE OFFERGUSON OR THE BLACK PEOPLE BUT

IS THIS GOOD AMERICA IS HEARINGTHIS?

BY AMERICA, I MEAN WHITE PEOPLE.

>> Larry: IN THE CIVIL RIGHTSERA, UNTIL IT WAS ON TELEVISION,

IT REALLY DIDN'T MAKE ADIFFERENCE.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

IT'S THE 11th HOUR OF THIS DAYAND WHITE PEOPLE HAVE TO WAKE

THE (BLEEP) UP.

AND WE'VE SEEN ENOUGH DEAD BLACKAND BROWN KIDS IN THIS COUNTRY

FROM FERGUSON TO OAKLAND TOLOS ANGELES TO NEW YORK, IT'S

TIME FOR US TO WAKE UP ANDRECOGNIZE THIS IS NOT A FERGUSON

PROBLEM.

IF THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICEINVESTIGATES EVERY SINGLE POLICE

DEPARTMENT IN THIS COUNTRY THECONSTITUTION WILL BURN (BLEEP)

UP.

>> THE FERGUSON POLICEDEPARTMENT IS NOT THE EXCEPTION,

I THINK IT'S JUST THE EXAMPLE.

THREES A LOT OF CLEANING UP TOBE DONE.

I THINK MIKE IS REALLY ANHONORARY BLACK PERSON AT THIS

POINT. EVERY TIME I GO TO AFERGUSON,

SANFORD OR A JACKSONVILLE TOCOVER THESE CASES, HIS FACE IS

ONE TO HAVE THE FIRST FACESTHERE.

>> YOU ARE THE EMINEM OFACTIVISTS

>> Larry: THAT'S TRUE.

AND MIKE IS NOT GOING TO GET --IS NOT GOING TO GET BEAT OVER

THE HEAD WHEN HE'S PULLED OVEREITHER.

THAT'S A FACT WE NEED TO HIGHLIGHT.

I WANT TO ASK YOU, HOW MUCH OFIT ALSO IS ON THE COMMUNITY'S

SIDE?

I KNOW CINCINNATI DID SOMEREFORM HERE AND IT KIND OF WENT

BOTH WAYS.

BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE TO COMETOGETHER, YOU HAVE TO HAVE

MEETINGS AND COMMUNITY HAVE TOBE INVOLVED.

>> BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE HAVETO GO INTO SURVIVAL MODE.

MY THING, IS HEY, MAN, I DRIVE AFIAT.

(LAUGHTER)NO MORE SUVs, BLACK DUDES!

LOOK HOW SAFE WE LOOK IN A FIAT!

(APPLAUSE)YOU CAN'T LEAN BACK, YOUR BACK

IS STRAIGHT, ALWAYS GOT A YOGAMAT IN THE BACK.

ALSO, KEEP STARBUCKS IN YOURHAND!

>> Larry: SPEAKING OFVEHICLES, PHILLIP, I WANT TO

BRING THIS UP WITH YOU, BECAUSEI WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE

MILITARIZATION OF SOME OF THESERESPONSES.

VERY TROUBLESOME TO ME.

THAT IS ONE OF THE VEHICLESTHERE, I THINK, IN FERGUSON.

THEY HAVE THINGS, LIKE -- IMEAN, SOME OF THESE WEAPONS ARE

INCREDIBLE.

ONE IS A SOUND CANON.

THE THE PURPOSE OF THAT IS TOBURST YOUR EARDRUM.

JUST TO TELL PEOPLE TO -- TO NOTCAUSE TROUBLE.

IF YOU BURST SOMEONE'S EARDRUMAND YOU SAY, FREEZE!

AND THEY DON'T STOP -- WELL,LOOK, HE'S STILL RUNNING, NOW I

GOTTA SHOOT HIM.

>> LARRY, I'M TELLING YOU, BLACKPEOPLE JUST NEED A FORCE FIELD.

FIELD.

AT LEAST GET KEANU REEVES'POWER AND DODGE A BULLET LIKE

THIS!

>> Larry: WE'LL BE BACK AFTERTHIS!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Larry: ALL RIGHT!

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE FORTONIGHT.

I WANT TO THANK OUR PANELISTSSUNNY HOSTIN, PHILLIP AGNEW

MICHAEL SKOLNIK AND GODFREY. NOWIT'S TIME FOR ME TO KEEP IT 100

AND THANKS FOR THE THE QUESTIONSYOU TWEETED ABOUT FERGUSON

I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS QUESTIONTILL NOW.

HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR CHILDREN THEHOW TO BE BLACK WITH THE POLICE

SPEECH?

ACTUALLY, MY KIDS ARE TOOLIGHT-SKINNED.

(LAUGHTER)ACTUALLY, MY KIDS AND I HAVE

TALKED ABOUT THIS STUFF SINCETHEY WERE LITTLE AND MY FATHER

IS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT, SO, THEANSWER IS YES.

FINALLY, DON'T FORGET TO FOLLOWAT "THE NIGHTLY SHOW" ON

TWITTER.

AND INSTAGRAM.

LIKE THE SHOW ON Facebook, ANDSWIPE RIGHT IF WE EVER START A

TINDER ACCOUNT.

UNTIL THEN, GOODNIGHTLY,EVERYONE!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
