Look over the stats

Mr. Roundtree

Young children
No marriage status indicated,
Now look at Roundtree's left hand,
and at his ring finger in the picture.

No Ring.

No mother for the children? Maybe a girlfriend(s)? Or maybe a 15 year old doing a lot of babysitting during the campaign?

What type of support and attention will those kids get, if Roundtree is elected and is working 12-18 hour days / 7 days a week?

Draw your own conclusions about his past and current lifestyle.

Mr. Sanders seems to be a lot more stable in all regards than Mr. Roundtree.

In the interview,

Richard Roundtree said:

I don’t just want to lock people up after they break into your house, I want to find ways to prevent them from breaking into your house.

Well, think about this; if you lock the people up who break into my house, then they won't be breaking into somebody else’s house.

If you want to prevent them from breaking in, perhaps you would be more suited to opening a home security business than to becoming sheriff.
