The co-hosts of the Fox News show "Outnumbered" discussed the terrorist attack that occurred in Paris, France, today.
Fox News’ host Eric Bolling said that the U.S. should “over-militarize” the police in order to prevent such an attack in America, noted Mediaite.com (video below).
“There’s been a very serious push from the left saying, ‘Let’s not over-militarize our cops,’” stated Bolling. “That should put an end to the discussion right now. We should over-militarize, we should continue to do that.”
Bolling said he missed the post-9/11 days when NYPD officers carried machine guns and added, "Maybe it's time to bring that back."
However, co-host Kennedy Montgomery objected to militarizing the police and said, "[Police] shouldn’t see us as the enemy, you know, we are not the enemy. We are not people there hunting or combating ... but that's the difference between the military and the police.”
According to MediaMatters.org, Fox News host Shannon Bream offered her take on weeding out the "bad guys" via skin color.
"That's my question about these guys, because if we know if they were speaking speaking unaccented French and they had, you know, ski masks on, do we even know what color they were, what the tone of their skin was?" said Bream. "I mean, what if they didn't look like typical bad guys? As we define them when we think about terror groups."
