Fox News resident psychiatrist and Medical A-Team member Dr. Keith Ablow asserted on Monday that it was “an insult to police officers” to provide them body cameras and additional de-escalation training.
Following the murder of two NYPD officers over the weekend, Ablow argued that Mayor Bill de Blasio “has to, just out of intellectual honesty, assume responsibility for launching a hate offensive against New York police officers.”
Ablow pointed out that the mayor had said that his son, who is black, was at a higher risk for being killed by police officers just like Eric Garner, an unarmed man who died after being put in a chokehold.
“And if the mayor says I don’t think I’m responsible in any way for someone that took murderous revenge on officers then it is unbelievable,” the Fox News contributor continued. “This guy has to go or the city is in bad hands.”
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade added that he was outraged over de Blasio’s initiative to provide de-escalation training to officers in response to Garner’s homicide.
“What an insult that is,” Kilmeade complained.
“The whole policing program with wearing body cameras and the rest of it is an insult to police officers,” Ablow agreed.

Jim Jordan childishly refuses to condemn Trump’s Ukraine call: ‘Democrats have been out to get the president’
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Sunday argued that President Donald Trump should not be impeached because he never completed his quid pro quo with Ukraine.
During an interview on CBS, host Margaret Brennan explained that Trump only released aid to Ukraine after a whistleblower came forward with allegations that he was trying to bribe the country's president to investigate political rival Joe Biden.
"Most important, the Ukrainians did nothing, as far as investigations go, to get the aid released," Jordan opined. "There was never this quid pro quo, that the Democrats all promise existed before President Trump released the phone call."
Chuck Todd burns down GOP’s Ron Johnson’s Ukraine excuses: ‘You seem to blame this on everybody but the president’
A clearly exasperated Chuck Todd was forced to talk over a loud and filibustering Sen Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Sunday morning for once again pushing Ukraine conspiracies and arguing over whether Donald Trump wanted the president of Ukraine to attack former Vice President Joe Biden on his behalf.
Having let Johnson throw out several scenarios and try and spread the blame around, Todd, finally cut in to say, "You seem to blame this on everybody but the president. It was the president’s actions."
"You’re blaming everybody else for the reason we’re in this situation, other than the president," Todd continued. "Isn’t the president’s own behavior, which raised all of these yellow and red flags, isn’t is that why we’re here?”
