NY Post reports former Mayor Michael Bloomberg publicly claimed that cops across the country could use a “Xerox” description of minorities to identify suspected murderers in a newly unearthed recording of a speech from 2015.“Ninety-five percent of murders, murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops,” Bloomberg told the Aspen Institute in 2015.

Bloomberg had video of speech blocked.
