Decision 2016: Bernie Sanders supporters protest Hillary Clinton

Posted: Updated:
BALTIMORE (AP) -

A handful of Bernie Sanders supporters are protesting Hillary Clinton in Baltimore on Sunday.
    
The small group held up a sign reading: "Clinton: What about mass incarceration" and chanted "super predator."  As they were escorted out of the campaign rally by police, the activists chanted "Feel The Bern."
    
Both Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, have been repeatedly protested for their support for the 1994 crime bill - a signature achievement of her husband's administration. On Friday, Bill Clinton offered a near apology for a contentious confrontation with some protesters at a Philadelphia campaign rally.
    
They've both said they regret the bill because it contributed to high incarceration rates of black people for nonviolent crimes, like minor drug offenses. Sanders, then a congressman, also backed the legislation.
    
Meanwhile, in New York, Sanders is riling up hundreds of supporters at Coney Island, telling them he's listening to their voices instead of "hustling money" on Wall Street and from billionaires.
    
It was a dig at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Sanders has been widely critical of her ties to Wall Street.
    
Delivering remarks in front of the Thunderbolt roller coaster, Sanders is reminiscing about visiting the amusement park as a child. He jokes that he "ate half the hot dogs" at the park.
    
Hundreds more supporters are lined up on the beach near the event to here Sanders remarks. His Sunday rally concludes a three-day, seven-stop swing through New York City. He'll head to Upstate New York to campaign on Monday morning.
