In her "First Thoughts" on Fox Nation Tuesday, Tomi Lahren said she and others were heckled at a Utah event honoring the families of fallen police officers.

Lahren spoke this weekend in Salt Lake City at a Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) gathering, but said she was outraged by the behavior she and others encountered.

She explained:

Outside of the venue Black Lives Matter protesters showed up to heckle attendees and the spirit of the evening. I’m sure many were there simply because they think they hate me, but that’s not the point.

I’m used to being protested. It doesn’t bother me. What bothers me is when morons stand outside of an event honoring fallen law enforcement with “Black Lives Matter” signs and disrespect those family members who came to memorialize and celebrate the lives of their loved ones- loved ones who put it all on the line and paid the ultimate price to keep their community safer.

That’s what really disgusts me.

"You'd think all people would show a little respect for an event like that," Lahren said.

She explained that some people at the event told her they feel ostracized for supporting police officers, including the high school-age daughter of the state's Fraternal Order of Police.

"She told me her high school teachers routinely attack and degrade cops in their teachings. One even used a Martin Luther King Jr. speech to teach her class that police are hateful and they haven’t changed," she recalled.

Lahren said another woman spoke of her daughter competing to be Miss Utah on the platform of showcasing the importance of police officers. She said, however, that her daughter was cautioned that she would be unlikely to win with such a platform. 

Lahren said it's "disheartening" to see that the country is at a point where if you show support for law enforcement, you risk becoming a "social pariah."
