Fox News Host Says We ‘Cannot Just Dismiss’ Protesters, Wants To See ‘Actual Policy Change’ Concerning Law Enforcement

Published

Fox News host Steve Hilton delivered a rather controversial opinion on national television by suggesting that our nation is in desperate need of police policy reform, and noted that we cannot ignore the protesters and their desire to be heard.

Hilton kicked off his show on Sunday by putting forth an argument that George Floyd’s death has served the purpose of unifying the country in disgust, however the following protests have further divided folks.

“What most protesters are advocating for, an end to excessive police force and systemic racism, that is justified, and precisely because of the unity over George Floyd’s murder, it felt like positive change might happen,” Hilton said on the program.

Hilton went on to say that “peaceful righteous protest was co-opted” and “exploited,” which caused folks who were merging together to once again retreat back into their tribal camps. The Fox News host also stated defunding police was not a viable solution to the problem.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“To solve problems, you need the hard, painstaking work of actual policy change. And let’s be honest, that work needs to be done,” he argued. “We cannot just dismiss what we’re seeing as the antics of some Brooklyn radicals. You’re seeing peaceful protests across the country in red states as well as blue states, in small towns as well as big cities, all ages, races, and backgrounds. Police officers themselves want change.”

Protests have popped up across the country over the last two weeks in response to Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, dying on Memorial Day after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes despite his pleas for air.

Derek Chauvin, the man who put his knee on the neck of George Floyd and is directly responsible for his death, was booted from the department and has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. The other three law enforcement officers involved in Floyd’s death have also been fired and subsequently charged with aiding and abetting murder.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
