Sanders supporters protest Clinton in Baltimore

WASHINGTON- A handful of Bernie Sanders supporters are protesting Hillary Clinton in Baltimore on Sunday. The small group held up a sign reading: “Clinton: What about mass incarceration” and chanted “super predator.” As they were escorted out

of the campaign rally by police, the activists chanted “Feel The Bern.” Both Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, have been repeatedly protested for their support for the 1994 crime bill — a signature achievement of her husband’s administration. On Friday, Bill Clinton offered a near apology for a contentious confrontation with some protesters at a Philadelphia campaign rally. They’ve both said they regret the bill because it contributed to high incarceration rates of black people for nonviolent crimes, like minor drug offenses. Sanders, then a congressman, also backed the legislation.
