Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean weighed-in on the ongoing protests sweeping major American cities; saying the chaos in the country needs to end right now.
“Universally, we’re all in agreement that the knee on that neck is unacceptable, it’s a death sentence. Anger, grief surrounding that video is something all Americans feel tonight. Floyd was handcuffed and on the ground,” said Hannity.
“Other police officers could have stepped in and did not. Why? We need to hear from them… Justice will be served. At this point, hundreds of businesses have been utterly destroyed. Looting in many American cities. What we’re witnessing as a country is a fundamental failure of liberal governors, liberal mayors across the US. The chaos in America needs to end now,” he added.

KERIK on HANNITY: George Floyd’s Arrest ‘Defies Logic, Common Sense, Training, Police Procedure’
Former Commissioner of the NYPD Bernie Kerik stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd; saying his arrest “defies logic, common sense, training, and police procedure.”
“I’m looking at this, you know how sensitive the neck area is, he’s not resisting, why would they keep their knee on his neck for six minutes or more?” asked Hannity.
“Nobody has the answer because it defies logic, common sense, training, and police procedures. There was no resistance… How did he get there? Why did he get there? The guys crying out that he can’t breath,” said Kerik. “This case, this is atrocious. This was an abusive use of force, it was a killing of someone who should not have died.”

BACKLASH: NYPD Union Blasts De Blasio, Says Mayor’s Daughter an ‘Object-Throwing Rioting Anarchist’
The NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association ripped New York Mayor Bill de Blasio in a now-deleted tweet Monday; calling his daughter an “object throwing rioting anarchist” after learning of her arrest late Saturday night.
“How can the NYPD protect the city of NY from rioting anarchist when the Mayors object throwing daughter is one of them. Now we know why he is forbidding Mounted units to be mobilized and keeping the NYPD from doing their jobs,” read the SBA tweet.
Bill de Blasio said he was “proud” of his daughter after the 25-year-old was reportedly arrested in Manhattan for blocking traffic during citywide protests in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.
“We asked her to recount the whole story. I love my daughter deeply, I honor her. She only wants to do good in the world. She believes a lot of change is needed. I’m proud of her that she cares so much that she’s willing to go out there and do something about it,” said de Blasio.
“She was acting peacefully. She believes that everything she did was in the spirit of respectful protest… I’ll let her speak for herself, but I admire that she was out there trying to change something that she thought was unjust,” he added.
