Cory Booker turns the heat up on Biden after debate

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker clashed with former vice president Joe Biden over criminal justice reform during the second round of Democratic debates in Detroit, Michigan.

Rough cut - no reporter narration.


"He can't even speak to the suffering of people who are in prison right now who are suffering in justly," Booker said in an interview after the debate had ended.

Booker renewed his criticism of Biden's work as a senator on the 1994 crime bill, which critics say led to the disproportionate imprisonment of African-American men.

"The first thing he has to do is to own up to, not just the mistakes that he's made, but how it's impacting people's lives now, and have a better plan for liberating people who are unjustly incarcerated right now."
