Mike Huckabee: Michael Brown Would Be Alive if He Wasn’t Acting Like a ‘Thug’

‘What gets you shot is when you grab a police officer’s gun and you lunge at him and you try to hit him in the face’

Huckabee: Michael Brown Would Be Alive if He Wasn’t Acting Like a ‘Thug’ (Mediaite)

During an appearance on NewsmaxTV’s “America’s Forum” show Wednesday, Fox News host and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee shared his strong opinions on the aftermath of the Ferguson grand jury decision, including what he thinks of St. Louis Rams playersand members of Congress who did the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture in protest of the Michael Brown shooting. “This is not only foolish and dangerous, but is really on the verge of anarchy,” he said.

“Well, first of all, I found it just incredibly dangerous that you had members of Congress, on the floor of Congress, holding up their hands in the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ position, as if to say that somehow that is gonna get you shot,” Huckabee said, perhaps not fully understanding the symbolism of the gesture in question.
