Peter King Criticizes Hillary: We Are at War and Police Need Weapons of War

Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends,” in light of  Sunday’s shooting at a Texas art exhibit featuring cartoons about Mohammed, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) slammed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her speech last week criticizing the criminal justice system for mass incarceration and the over militarization of police departments.

King said, “When people like Hillary Clinton say that police should not have weapons of war, the fact is we are at war, we are at war with Islamist terrorism and we have to have all weapons and all resources available.”

He added, “We shouldn’t even be having a debate about whether that exhibition was provocative, being in America means that you can be provocative. This is the First Amendment, we cannot sacrifice our Constitution to Islamists or politically correct commentators.”
