IT WILL BE A HOME GAME FOR THE WHITE SOX AND AIRING ON FOX. SOME NEW YORK DEMOCRATS INCLUDING THE SPEAKER SAY THEY OPPOSE MAKING DOUSING POLICE OFFICERS WITH WATER A FELONY. THEY SAY IT DOESN’T ADDRESS THE REAL PROBLEM AND IS A MAJOR OVERREACTION. VIDEOS OF COPS BEING SOAKED HAS SPARKED OUTRAGE AND RAISED SAFETY CONCERNS. THE SPEAKER TELLING THE POST “I DON’T KNOW IN ALWAYS PROPOSING NEW PENALTIES AND LAWS IS THE ANSWER. I THINK ON THE POSITIVE END, WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO TRY TO ESTABLISH MORE OF A COMMUNITY RESPONSE. THAT IS MORE BENEFICIAL INSTEAD OF SAYING WE’RE GOING TO LOCK PEOPLE UP.” JOINING US IS JOE FROM THE BLUE LIVES MATTER. IT’S HARD TO WATCH THAT VIDEO. I REMEMBER WHEN IT FIRST SURFACED. LET ME ASK YOU, IT WAS MY IMPRESSION IT’S ALREADY AGAINST THE LAW TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS, IS IT NOT? HOW WOULD THIS CHANGE THINGS?>>FIRST OF ALL, TO HAVE POLITICIANS STAND UP THERE TO INTRODUCE A BILL, THAT’S WHAT WE NEED. WE NEED POLITICIANS TO STAND BEHIND OFFICERS ALL OVER THE NATION TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THE DEMOCRATS AND WHAT YOU SAW SAYING THIS ISN’T AN ISSUE. THEY ENABLE THE PUBLIC. THEY SAY WE’LL DENOUNCE IT. POLICE SHOULD HAVE A THICKER SKIN. DO I THINK THEY NEED A NEW BILL? SHOULD THEY ADD HARASSMENT. NOBODY SHOULD GO TO A POLICE OFFICER AND THOUGH ANY OBJECT, WHETHER IT’S A WATER OR LIQUID. SECOND OF ALL, WE SAW THE POLICE OFFICERS IN THE SUBWAY. GOING UP AND SAYING I WANT YOU TO SUCK MY PRIVATE PARTS. I’M GOING TO F YOUR WIFE. THIS IS WHAT POLICE OFFICERS GO THROUGH DAILY. YOU’LL HEAR PEOPLE SAY THIS IS THEIR JOB, THIS IS WHAT THEY SIGNED UP FOR. IT’S NOT. IF A POLICE OFFICER OR CELEBRITY GETS ARRESTING, THEY THROW THE BACK AT THEM. WOE NEED OUR JUDGES AND LAW ATTORNEYS TO DO THE SAME THING AGAINST POLICE.>>WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? WHY WOULD PEOPLE THINK THIS IS APPROPRIATE TO DO?>>IT GOES BACK TO POLITICS AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. MAYORS OF CERTAIN CITY GOES OUT THERE AND THEY DON’T STAND UP FOR POLICE OFFICERS. DANIEL, WHEN HE GOES OUT THERE AND DOES HIS JOB, PUTS HIS HANDS ON PEOPLE. WE NEED TO CHANGE IT AROUND. OFFICERS SHOULD DO THEIR JOB AND KNOW THEY HAVE SUPPORT. ESPECIALLY IN NEW YORK CITY, OUR TOP COP, O’NEAL, IS INCREDIBLE. HE WILL DEFEND US. I HAVE GREAT FAITH IN THAT. WE HAVE TO KNOW OUR EXECUTIVES WILL DO THAT. WE CAN’T BE AFRAID TO DO OUR JOB BECAUSE SOME POLITICIANS ARE AGAINST US.>>WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE DEMOCRATS OPPOSED TO THIS?>>THEY’RE SO MISINFORMED LIKE IN 2014 WHEN THEY WENT OUT THERE, WE HAD OUR OWN POLICE OFFICERS SHOT AND KILLED BECAUSE OF POLITICS. IT’S FUNNY. THESE PEOPLE HAVE POLICE OFFICERS GUARDING THEM WITH FIREARMS. YOU’RE NOT GOING TO MENTION THAT OR SEE THEIR SECURITY DETAIL. THEY GET TO LEAVE AND NOT WORRY. THE WATER BUCKET INCIDENT, WHAT HAPPENS TO A GRANDMA WALKING DOWN THE STREET, A LITTLE BOY OR GIRL COMING HOME FROM SCHOOL. DO THEY THINK IT’S OKAY?>>AND CREATES AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE POLICE CAN’T BE SAFE THEMSELVES. IT’S A NEW LEVEL OF LAWLESSNESS OUT THERE. THEY DON’T REALIZE THE IMPLICATIONS ON THEMSELVES.>>WE HAVE TO REALIZE THERE’S LAWS. WE HAVE TO SWEAR ON AN OATH. YOU HEAR POLITICIANS CONFUSING OFFICERS. THEY SHOULDN’T BE AFRAID. OUR JOB IS TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC AND DO IT DAILY.>>YOU THINK THIS BECOMES A GREATER CRIME?>>YOU KNOW, IT SHOULD BE. THANK GOD FOR NEWS NETWORKS LIKE FOX THAT GO OUT THERE AND REPLACE IT AND SHOW THE BIG ISSUES GOING ON AND THE VIDEOS LIKE WE’RE WATCHING TODAY. IMAGINE THE INDENSES THAT ARE NOT CAUGHT ON VIDEO.>>THANKS FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO. WHEN WE WALK IN THE BUILDING, WE HAVE OFFICERS HERE PROTECTING US. I THANK THEM FOR BEING HERE. IT’S AMAZING THOSE THAT DISRESPECT OUR MEN IN UNIFORM AND MEN AND WOMEN OUT THERE TRYING TO KEEP LAW AND ORDER IN PLACE. THAT’S WHY PEOPLE COME TO THIS COUNTRY.
