Transcript for 'The View' Co-Hosts Discuss Shootings in Dallas
Not so great. Was what happened here in America was a rough week for America after the fatal police shootings. Outs in sterling and feel I'm a passel. A crazy man. Who was mad about the shootings went to a black labs a matter rally in Dallas and did exactly what he said he was angry about. He shot clock police offices and wounded bystanders some hopeful wore black. Something crazy is happening. Shooting police officers. Police officers should be none of this is okay. None of it is OK you aren't out yet I just got back from Dallas last night and it was really somber there and I have the opportunity to meet with a lot of those police officers and speak to other reporters. And it was it was a very somber moment but people really in Dallas have come together like but that was heart warming. I will say that the bright side of it is that the bottom line is that anti. Police violence is down so people aren't just at random generally shooting ample officers. But we also have to be mindful that. Fatal police shootings of unarmed black man is up by 6% just this year. And so I'm hoping that we can have those two conversations. At the same time that we can mourn the police officers that were that were murdered because that is so tragic but we should also. Be mourning the two black men that were also shot within days of each. Is it interesting to note that 71% of police offices have been shot and killed this year have been by white guys. Revenue 1% debts an interesting point yeah did you get to talk to the Dallas police chief who had in extraordinary. I didn't get to interview him now but I'm he is extraordinary and I think that's the kind of leadership. That we need. At at this time and he's a man whose son and shot the police and was killed. He is a man who lost his brother to to violence as well as so he isn't that knows it from the victim's perspective and that was. And the Dallas Police Department by the way has done they've made incredible strides yet terms of police and community yes they have a so that is what it is also also very tragic that out of you know everything this is a police department that generally gets it right say. Here's what happens again we talk a lot about. People. With issue just added this man went and did this. You know clearly. If you're angry you don't go and do exactly what you're angry about this is a man who had I feel some some psychological. Yes we'll that's the that's been reported that he had it was mentally unstable that he I'd also bit. Discharged from from the army dishonorably. Honorable had a kind of on the honor they had to study has discussed yeah any you know but he had an arsenal of weapons. You know I think a legal all legal. I think what you're saying what the is as important that people do have a right to be angry I think there's a lot going on. And and and the right to protest in this country it is a basic right you have to protect that. But what you don't have a right to do is going inflict violence on other people I actually felt that President Obama gave a great statement I thought it was balanced I thought he set up a law enforcement. Up protecting those people who go out every day protect our lives I think he condemned violence and I think he also spoke to the issues but a lot of African Americans in these communities feel that they are targets for no reason. And unless community. And law enforcement comes together and has these discussions and the rest of us understand the importance of unity. This this problems only in the network so I appreciated that at a time we needed unity the president didn't take a side deal to everybody excited he said I hear what you're all saying. But violence is not allowed in any circumstance and the right to protest have to be protected. But I have to be peaceful or you're undermining your own cause in the process so I think in part.
