NYPD officer and commentator Joseph Imperatrice appeared on Fox News on Thursday where he suggested that progressive lawmakers need to experience gun violence first hand.
“The harsh truth is we need the lawmakers to be victims,” replied Imperatrice, the founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC.
“We need them to understand when the worst situation possible hits them, and then they can turn around and say, ‘Wow, maybe it’s an issue. Maybe I need to wake up and do my job and change things for the better,’” he added. “I’m not praying any of these people get hurt or harmed, but they need to see firsthand how bad the streets really are.”
