“So, to that end, on my letterhead — now, let me tell you something about my letterhead. When you’re the DA of a major city in this country, usually the job comes with a badge. And there is often an artistic rendering of said badge on your stationery,” Harris says in the clip.
“So, I sent a letter out on my letterhead to every parent in the school district, outlining the connection that was statistically proven between elementary school truancy, high school dropouts, who will become a victim of crime, and who will become a perpetrator or crime,” she adds.
Kamala Harris's comments of "using the stick" to make poor families behave, or be arrested, is deeply disturbing. This is much worse than Clinton's "super predator" comments, because Harris's conviction belies a far more deeply held political philosophy. pic.twitter.com/WhFkO4HOE4

Harris continued: “We sent it out to everyone. A friend of mine actually called me and he said, Kamala, my wife got the letter. She freaked out. She brought all the kids into the living room, held up the letter, said if you don’t go to school, Kamala is going to put you and me in jail.”
The crowd can be heard laughing at Harris’ comments.
“Yes, we achieved the intended effect,” Harris added, cackling and enjoying the applause.
The utter joy Harris takes in “using the stick” to make poor families behave, or be arrested, speaks volumes about her true character.
The deeply disturbing clip, which appears to be from when she served as California’s attorney general, comes just one day after Harris officially announced her bid for the presidency.
On Sunday, the California Democrat held an event in Oakland to announce her candidacy for president and promised “free” goodies for everyone.
“I’m running to fight for an America where the economy works for working people. I am running to declare, once and for all, that health care is a fundamental right, and to deliver that right with ‘Medicare for All.’ To declare education is a fundamental right, and we will guarantee that right with universal pre-k and debt-free college,” she said.

The California progressive then detailed her slogan “For The People,” which is weirdly the same phrase used by Morgan and Morgan, a large personal injury law firm.
Harris’ campaign slogan “For the People” was alluded to in her speech as to what it meant to her.
“‘For the People’ meant fighting for a more fair criminal justice system at the height of the war on drugs by creating a first-of-its-kind initiative to allow first-time offenders to get skills and job training instead of jail time — at a time when reentry and prevention and redemption were not in the vocabulary or mindset of most district attorneys,” Harris said.
All of this also comes just days after Willie Brown, one of the kingmakers of California politics, openly admitted in an op-ed that he corruptly began Harris’ career while he was dating her as a married man years ago.
