Over the weekend, demonstrations in New York City turned ugly, as protesters began chanting, "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!"

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., said on "Fox and Friends" this morning that she was shocked by the protesters' hateful chants.

King said she could understand demanding jobs, a better economy and safe families, not dead cops. She called instead for non-violent, peaceful protesting.

"My uncle would ask for peace and for justice," King said. "Dead cops are not going to set anybody free ... My uncle would certainly encourage people to be peaceful. That's just rabble-rousing."

"We don't want to be killed in the streets ... but this is not the way to get our answers and our solutions."
