Newt Gingrich says that the mainstream media's coverage of the unrest in Charlotte just adds fuel to the fire.

"The whole narrative of the left is that whatever happens is the police's fault," Gingrich said on "Hannity" tonight. "On the left, there's this constant bias against the police and a constant bias against people who are trying to enforce the law."

He pointed out that the riots in Charlotte have largely been racially-motivated, despite the fact that the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott involves an African-American victim, an African-American officer and an African-American police chief.

Gingrich added that the anti-police rhetoric that's coming from many on the left has created a very dangerous environment for law enforcement.

He noted that has led to officers actually being targeted, like we saw in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

"If you're a policeman and you realize over the last six or eight months, there are people out there gunning for policemen," Gingrich said. "You have a lot shorter fuse than you would have had a year ago, because you kept getting told that your life is in danger from random people because they want to kill cops."
