Welcome to the premiere podcast of Fox News Legal Analyst and two-time New York Times Best-selling author Gregg Jarrett. In this episode, Gregg addresses the “bullets and bloodshed” that are plaguing American streets. “Anarchy has replaced law and order” and many U.S. cities are currently unsafe. Gregg begins his explanation by going back to the horrific killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers who are now facing murder charges “as they should.” The actions of Derek Chauvin, the main officer who was seen on camera with his knee on Floyd’s neck was “indefensible. Unjustified. And clearly criminal.”
Floyd’s death May 25thsparked outrage across the country and moved people to protest in the streets by the hundreds of thousands. Unfortunately, the “design of peaceful protests” and the moral concept of Black Lives Matter was “soon hijacked by hordes of people intent on committing crimes.” For example, shooting victims in New York City rose by more than 100% in the month of June alone. The crime wave itself is tragic in its own right, but 97% of the victims were minorities, adding another level of sadness; particularly as the violence increased under the headline of “Black Lives Matter.”
It is undeniable the instigators weren’t concerned about racial injustice or police brutality. They were interested in rioting, looting, assault, and battery and violence against persons and personal property. The result? Bullets and bloodshed.
