Dan Bongino: It's Time to Re-Humanize Police
Dan Bongino expressed his sorrow over the police officers who were killed overnight in three separate incidents.
Two officers were killed near Orlando Florida. Another two were injured in Jacksonville, Florida, and two state troopers in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.
"I can't help but think about what that dinner table is going to look like," the former NYPD officer and Secret Service officer told "Fox & Friends" Saturday.
"Now you're going to have that empty chair, these three young kids for the rest of their lives are without their father."
The former agent recalled that Secret Service members are told they must "get big" when bullets start flying and take the hit.
"They have to get big every single day," Bongino said of cops.
He said police have to deal with a twofold threat: the growing possibility of being ambushed by terrorists as well as the harsh rhetoric by groups who want to "dehumanize police."
"It's so destructive to morale," he said. "You have police departments having a really tough time recruiting."
