Republican Senator, from South Carolina, Tim Scott joined Fox News Primetime last night to talk about police reform. He opened the segment with a call to action for citizens.
“This is National Police Week so there’s no better time to for us to say ‘THANK YOU’ to an officer. So if you see an officer around your neighborhoods or around your streets, please stop and say ‘THANK YOU’ to those officers” – Tim Scott
“What they should know about what we’re doing in Congress is taking first into consideration the important work that they do, making sure that we keep our officers safe. If you want communities to be safe, we have to have officers who aren’t thinking about their personal liability or their assets as they run into harm’s way. That is one of the reasons why for qualified immunity. I have been for the last year open for putting more of the onus on the municipalities, on the counties, on the state and taking it off of the officers. That to me is the way that we can continue to tell the officers that we need them going into harm’s way without having to have an additional level of exposure from a liability perspective.” – Tim Scott
“Two things. Training, smaller stations, small precincts don’t have the money. And they gotta pay them more. And if you want Federal money, help on both those things. Number two, when people say defund the police and we know this Democrats and The Squad members keep saying it, reimagining, getting rid of, they’re irreconcilable. What are you going to do about that sentiment, Senator? Can you deal with that?” – Brian Kilmeade
“The way I deal with ‘Defund The Police’ is it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever hear in my whole life. Growing up in a single parent household and poverty, We always want police officers around when necessary. Especially to keep our moms safe. So that’s really important so that’s off the table in my opinion. And we need to provide more resources, more money. Bottom line when I saw resources, I mean money.” – Tim Scott
