On Monday’s edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly talks to radio show host Clarence Mitchell about the recent acquittal of Edward Nero—–one of the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
O’Reilly says that Freddie Gray’s lifestyle is the reason for his death. The conservative journalist implies that drug trafficking and narcotics impacts his community and his family. This is his statement:
“I think all Americans, no matter when a citizen dies like Freddie Gray did, it’s never the citizen’s fault in the sense that Freddie Gray didn’t get up in the morning and say I’m going to do something and I’m going to die. But Freddie Gray’s lifestyle for many years, led him to this terrible thing which is not only impacted him and his family but all the police officers and that lifestyle should be condemned. I mean, this narcotics trafficking is awful. It is devastating.”
