While stumping for his wife, President Bill Clinton got into a pretty intense discussion with Black Lives Matter protesters about the impact of his 1994 crime bill.
"You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter. Tell the truth," Clinton told a crowd Thursday.
The former president explained how high crime was when he took office, arguing the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act lowered crime rates in America and had bipartisan support.
