« ‘Security forces have responded rapidly, and have deployed significant military assets and conducted air strikes against militant targets,’ said a government spokesman.

« District head Baba Abba Hassan said most victims are children, women and elderly people who could not run fast enough when insurgents drove into Baga, firing rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles on town residents. »

CNN’s Erin Burnett faced off with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani tonight over policing in minority communities and black crime. Giuliani was offended by the suggestion that the NYPD is unfairly targeting black people.

Burnett confronted Giuliani with some statistics about blacks being targeted by the police, but Giuliani dismissively said, “Statistics don’t tell you anything.”

Then he threw out a statistic of his own, that blacks commit a majority of murders. Burnett pushed back and they tussled a bit, with Burnett saying “if you are gonna play statistics that way…” and Giuliani responding, “You’re the one that brought up statistics.”
