Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been fighting for justice for over half a century, standing up to the establishment and fighting against segregation – he even got arrested for standing up for what he believes.
Bernie was once nabbed by the police while protesting the treatment of his fellow human beings over 50-years-ago when he was barely old enough to legally have an alcoholic drink.
