I Used to Outrun Cops
Before They Shot You … JK!!

breaking newsBen Carson flashed some energy and personality on the campaign trail Wednesday … by cracking a joke about cops shooting black kids.
The good doctor was stumping in New Hampshire, and reliving his childhood — telling a story about how he and pals used to throw rocks at cars and run from the police.
Innocent enough tale about his wayward youth, and then he said … “That was back in the day before they would shoot you.”
Hard to tell if the GOP presidential candidate’s comment was truly off-the-cuff or planned, but considering the current climate … it seems like a risky door to open.
Especially for a guy who’s moving up in the polls.
