Tucker Carlson debated Republican Senator Mike Braun (R-IN) tonight on his show. Braun is working on a bill to weaken the qualified immunity and called the Rayshard Brooks killing ‘egregious’:
It’s 9 minutes long but you really need to watch the whole thing. Because when you do, you’ll hear Braun call the killing of Rayshard Brooks ‘egregious’ because, as Braun puts it, the officer shouldn’t have shot him in the back and killed him. When asked by Tucker what he should have done instead with a man firing a weapon at him, Braun repeated his remark that he shouldn’t have shot him in the back. When pressed by Tucker, Braun suggested that the guy wouldn’t have gotten away and that police shouldn’t have killed him.
When questioned about his bill that weakens police immunity, Braun kept saying that Republicans have to be part of the discussion of else we’ll lose the Senate. Seriously. He claimed to have the support of police groups, but when asked if they were endorsing his bill that weakens police immunity, he said no. Braun suggested they want to be part of the discussion to. Tucker asked why he doesn’t write a bill that these police groups would endorse, and Braun simply said “we may get there…”
And this, my friends, is how we lose the Senate. Watch the video above for much more…
P.S. I almost forgot to mention that Braun also endorsed the group Black Lives Matter.
