GREG GUTFELD: TO GET TOP DEMOCRATS TO CARE ABOUT CRIME, YOU ALMOST HAVE TO HAVE ELECTIONS EVERY MONTH

HAROLD FORD JR. First of all, all of our prayers go out to the deceased and the family, to that whole community, which is a very small community dealing with this. I think we should all let all these facts come out, and we may find even more out tomorrow or Monday or Tuesday on the show. The last thing is what troubles me is that this person had killed this young man, thought that somehow or another, his actions might be perceived differently if he said it was because of a political dispute. We, all of us around this table, have our views, people watching have their views. We may agree or disagree with one another, but can you said it well. Everyone's entitled to their views. We all again got to take a step back and understand we can like one another. We can argue with one another, we can disagree with one another. We can be wrong, we can be right. But we certainly don't have to engage in violence.
