Fox's Tucker Carlson rationalizes suspected Kenosha shooter's actions, Facebook takes down militia pages - 2020-08-27
Fox News host Tucker Carlson drew the ire of Twitter users on Wednesday when he spoke of the deadly violence that erupted the previous night in Kenosha, Wis., where police have accused a white teen of intentional homicide.
The 17-year-old from a nearby town in Illinois was arrested Wednesday after two people were shot to death during Tuesday night's protests in Kenosha over the police shooting earlier this week of a Black man, Jacob Blake.
"People in charge, from the governor of Wisconsin on down, refused to enforce the law," Carlson said. "How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?"
