Sen. John Kennedy

“Most Americans understand – our woke leaders don’t – that what you allow is what will continue,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) said Tuesday, addressing the nation’s growing crime epidemic.

In an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Sen. Kennedy detailed five steps that must be taken in order to bring America’s crime problem under control:

1.) Hire more police

“New Orleans, in my state, needs two thousand cops on the street; we’ve got less than a thousand.”

2.) Pay the police

“You’re not going to get cops to work in this ‘woke’ environment without paying them.”

3.) Demand that political leaders stand behind good police

“The truth is that most cops will leave you alone, unless you do illegal stuff. And our political leadership has got to stand behind them.”

4.) Get rid of woke prosecutors

“We’ve got to get rid of these prosecutors, whose mantra is ‘See no evil, hear no evil, prosecute no evil.’”

5.) Practice our 2nd Amendment rights

“I believe love is the answer; I do – but, I also own a handgun, just in case.”
