The Huck: Maybe Michael Brown Shouldn’t Have Acted Like a “Thug”

Mike Huckabee is not mincing words when it comes to the situation in Ferguson and the events that led to the killing of Michael Brown.

The former Arkasas governor and current Fox News television host was a guest on Newsmax TV today, where he laid it all out for host JD Hayworth, a former Congressman.

I found it just incredibly dangerous that you had members of Congress, on the floor of Congress, holding up their hands in the ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ position, as if to say that somehow that is gonna get you shot,” Huckabee explained. “I’m gonna tell you something: what gets you shot is when you grab a police officer’s gun and you lunge at him and you try to hit him in the face … it’s a horrible thing that he was killed, but he could have avoided that if he behaved like something other than a thug.”

Huckabee also decried the “anarchy” that’s been on display in the town, of which we may possibly see more. It was reported earlier today that a Staten Island Grand Jury has failed to indict an NYPD officer for the choking death of Eric Garner, which marks the second high-profile decision in recent days to not indict a cop in the death of an unarmed black suspect.
