MARK LEVIN (HOST): You had something take place in Kenosha, where a longtime hoodlum, as it turns out -- sex offender, others, other things -- resisted police arrest. All we see is this very short clip. He walks around the passenger side of his car, walks into the driver’s side of the car -- he’s brushing off the cops, who have their guns out -- and he reaches into his car, going into his car, and then all you hear are shots. We’re told seven shots. He didn’t die. He’s expected to live.


All these innocent shop owners, all these innocent people, their families are being destroyed, their livelihoods are being destroyed.


I don't know what went on here. None of us know what went on here -- none of us. The guy's going into his car, for all they know he's trying to grab a gun, because apparently some of the arrests he's had was the use of a weapon. I mean, just as a rational matter, if some guy who has a record is resisting arrest -- I don't even mean physically, just pushing the cop away, going into the car -- for all they know, he's going in there to get a handgun. Now again, I don't have all the facts, I'm just giving a contrary possibility.
