Sen. John Kennedy Defends the Boys In Blue!

Kennedy’s comments come amid a rising anti-police climate across the nation after recent shootings of black people by police and high-profile public figures demanding that law enforcement officers be held accountable.

NBA star LeBron James was hit with accusations of inciting violence last week after he posted a tweet of the Ohio police officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant, who charged at two people with a knife, with the caption, “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.”

“I’ve said it before: If you hate cops just because they’re cops, then feel free to call a criminal, call a meth head the next time you get in trouble,” Kennedy told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Monday.

“I just do not accept, nor do I think most Americans accept, that most cops are bad people or racist,” he continued. “They don’t get up every day, go in to work hoping they can hurt somebody. Most of them get up every day and go to work and hope they can themselves come back home alive.”

Kennedy argued during his interview that out of officers’ roughly “60 million encounters with Americans every year,” the majority of situations are handled without issue.

We need more people like Mr. Kennedy to stand up for the Police and defend the ones that serve the public because if we leave them defunded and abandon them, there will be nobody left to answer the 911 call when our lives are in danger and we need the protection that they are so selflessly providing every day on the job!
