Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren suggested on Monday that the military should take over policing in Chicago.

"762 homicides in Chicago?" Van Susteren, who is reportedly in talks with MSNBC, wrote in a message on Twitter. "It is time to call in the National Guard to protect the law abiding citizens? Any other idea?"

The idea made a few of the ex-anchor's followers uncomfortable.

But the majority of Van Susteren's fans applauded the idea.
