washington well bill schneider is a political analyst and professor of public policy at george mason university he says trump is trying to appeal to his base some really rather unprecedented a vote to condemn the president by a house of congress you don't see that very often and it'll make it much more difficult in the future for the president to seek cooperation from congress and particularly any kind of collaboration with democrats who are the ones who are sponsoring. the resolution some republicans soon again but basically what we're seeing is a poisonous party divide made worse by this episode every move he makes as president is to galvanize his base he governs on behalf of his base he's a very unusual president most presidents seek to unite the country seek to create consensus this president governs by dividing he deliberately exploits the division

u.s. could do more. governments around the world have taken several measures including the us government to apply certain sanctions against people responsible for genocide this is the 1st time however that a government has come out and acknowledged senior gentlemen on lyings responsibility for those crimes and that is significant but there is certainly more that the u.s. government could and should do this particular set of sanctions really only prevents these generals from entering the united states but you know it's good news if this is the 1st measure that the united states government will take in addressing genocide in me and morgans the running of people it's bad news if this is all that secretary pompei in the administration are planning to do so we are hopeful that they'll do more and the impacts can be serious this will flag the responsibility of these individuals for international prosecutors for example the international criminal court it will give pause to business leaders going to me and

6:17 am
justice decided the evidence did not meet the high bar required to bring civil rights charges against the officer when we evaluated the actions and white his training and experience mr gardner size weight and actions to resist arrest and the duration and escalating nature of the interaction we determined that was insufficient evidence garners family and their supporters were quick to have jacked but years ago my son said. it today we came. because they have let us down. by the way those words i can't breathe became a rallying cry for the black lives matter movement against police brutality after garners death in 2014 bringing thousands to the street in protest. the mayor of new york issued
6:18 am
a statement expressing disappointment with the justice department's decision but clearly that wasn't enough for activists and members of their garters family who gathered outside city hall demanding that the mayor now fire officer bandolero while panta lay a won't face criminal charges he could still face disciplinary action by the new york police department but the department is known for protecting its officers. u.s. attorney william barr a trouble point he approved the decision not to charge panda layo a fact that was not lost on activists and local politicians it's a pretty clearly to communities of color. which on the mystery is showing yet again they don't give a damn about those protesters are again vowing to hit the streets in a country where race relations are already strained and a city where the mare is running for president as a democrat the pressure to act will be intense kristen salumi al jazeera new york.
6:19 am
well i stay with this bruce fein is a former u.s. associate deputy attorney general and joins us now live from washington d.c. thank you so much for speaking with us here on al-jazeera we heard in distance louise reports that phrase there is not enough evidence for a conviction but for for the average man or woman watching this show seeing that video hearing i can't breathe that many times it doesn't appear to match up just why is the justice department not pressing charges. well we need to take a comprehensive picture of all the investigations and evidence necessary to prove not only that a death occurred but there was a mental state of mind that satisfied the criminal threshold needed to convict remember that the state of new york also investigated and didn't even indict mr banta layo so in the state doesn't have the extra high threshold of proof needed in
6:20 am
a federal case to show busy that the accused policeman intended to violate a constitutional right that's a very high subjective standard that has to be met and also remember that this isn't simply a decision of the trump administration the obama administration which to be candid he was black he had a black attorney general 2 of them also ahead declined to go forward with a prosecution so if you look at everything go ahead as the sub starts to cut you off there was this going to say it doesn't. well we'll get into the i was just going to say to set your hands i do have. the bullets in a 2nd but certainly from a legal perspective what exactly would it take to get a conviction. you have in a federal civil rights criminal case the u.s. supreme court has said you have to prove that the policeman specifically intended mentally to deprive the victim of the constitutional right to life that they was
6:21 am
thinking about there's no due process i want to take this individual's life and not give him a judicial trial that's a very high standard it's not insurmountable in the rodney glen king case several years ago it was met with regard to illegal seizure if you will of mr. king it wasn't a death but it's still a very exacting standard and it's the rare case that you do get convictions when i was in the department there is an effort to prosecute 8 national guardsman for kent state killings after the cambodian vacation and they were all acquitted but that's what you have to prove not only the acts but a mental state of mind that specifically intends to deprive a constitutional right well given the standard is so high it can seem to the casual observer who does not have the legal training that this does not seem like justice has been done it appears that this officer has got off scot free no charges will be
6:22 am
brought forth message do you think this sends about the legal system as it stands. well i think maybe your statement is a little bit incomplete because busy the city did pay $5900000.00 to the family for a claim of wrongful death moreover it wasn't just the federal department of justice involved the state authorities busy also had jurisdiction over the case because they have the so-called dual sovereignty docked in the state authorities also did not move forward and it's known that new york is a very heavily democratic state and there's also the possibility that you could change the statute it's not fixed in granite congress could lower the mental state of mind needed for a conviction and moreover i don't think it's fair to just pick out a single isolated case and say well the system is terrible because maybe it miscarried on one or 2 occasions i remember that kind of refrain was said we should have jury trials after o.j.
6:23 am
simpson was acquitted of charges of murder but we kept jury trial system we are human there are going to be imperfections i don't think we should throw the baby out with the bathwater ok bruce for. unfortunately we have run out of time but thanks very much for joining us there live from washington d.c. thank you thank you south african a singer and and singapore side activist johnny clegg has died at the age of 66. clegg was one of the few point arsonists to defy segregation rules and openly criticize the apartheid system nicknamed the point he was famous for blending traditional african rhythms western sickle styles. and african seeking short term visas in the united kingdom are more than twice as likely to be refused than other applicants that's according to reports that find the home office responsible for
