Lindsey Graham Suggests It’s ‘Not A Bad Idea’ For Senate Judiciary Committee To Hold Hearings On Police Violence

Published

on

Sen. Lindsey Graham has come out and stated that the idea for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearing regarding the subject of police violence against black citizens isn’t a bad idea.

This suggestion comes after the violent and tragic death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, after a law enforcement officer put his knee against his neck while attempting to detain him.

As of right now, the city of Minneapolis is full of angry residents who have taken to the street, rioting and looting over the incident, burning some local businesses to the ground.

Graham made an appearance on the Hugh Hewitt radio program on Thursday where he was asked whether or not the Senate Judiciary Committee should look into instances of police brutality against black citizens. Graham answered that this is something he most definitely intends to pursue.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“I think a lot of African Americans have a legitimate claim to a hearing on the issue of police violence against African American men in these situations. What do you think, Senator Graham?” Hewitt asked.

“You know, that’s not a bad idea at all,” Graham responded while adding that he does not want to interfere with the investigation into the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who was pronounced dead at a hospital after a Minneapolis police officer pinned him down by placing a knee on the back of his neck for approximately eight minutes until he became unresponsive.

Graham suggested that folks need to take a few steps back from things and really look at the overall picture of the incidents of police violence against black citizens and the frequency with which they keep occurring.

“To take a 30,000-foot view of things: Why does this happen? How often is it? Is it an aberration? The rule of law depends on honest, ethical cops, and judges, and prosecutors. If the cops are not honest, ethical, they don’t follow the rules, they don’t turn over Brady materials, they use excessive force, then the rule of law deteriorates.”

Graham added that he views the death of Floyd as a situation where a man died “for no good reason.”

One of the suggestions that Hewitt made to Graham was to have fellow South Carolina senator, Tim Scott, who is a black Republican, make an appearance before the judicial committee to talk about how this issue is impacting the black community. Graham responded by calling the idea “good judgment.”

“Tim’s been stopped multiple times on Capitol Hill. I’ve never been stopped driving around,” Graham said. “Tim probably could shed light on this different from any other United States senator because he’s a conservative Republican.”

You don’t want to mess with Sheriff Darryl Daniels. He has put his foot down when it comes to violent leftist protesters – and he means business. Here’s the deal, via NYP: A sheriff in Florida said he’s ready to deputize every gun owner in his county if violent protests erupt. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels issued the warning in a three-minute video Wednesday, saying he was ready to enlist the help of civilians if there are any demonstrations his deputies can’t handle alone. Daniels said, “If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in the county.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/wjxt4/status/1278290632516210689?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1278290632516210689%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F07%2Fblack-florida-sheriff-deputize-gun-owners-stop-godless-blm-mob%2F A bunch of future Joe Biden voters decided to ambush police officers in Tampa Bay this past Saturday night. These are most likely the kind of people who don’t have to use “COVID” as an excuse for the reason they don’t have a job. They were probably unemployed to begin with. Why aren’t Democrat “leaders” speaking out on this violent behavior? From Fox35Orlando: TAMPA, Fla. – The chief of the Tampa Police Department says his officers were “ambushed” early Saturday morning. […] As officers took one person into custody, the crowd surrounded officers and threw glass bottles, while several subjects jumped on one of the officer’s cars. Tampa chief Brian Dugan said, “There were hundreds of them. Hundreds. We ended up having to call every single police officer that was available that night to respond there, from New Tampa to South Tampa.” VIDEO:
