JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): We now have, what is this, day three of the riots? You’re going -- and there's a power vacuum because the state is not sending in people to calm things down. Sadly, you're going to have vigilante justice. You’re going to have business owners send in people or go in themselves to protect their small business that they've worked their lives to make work. And things happen and it's horrible and that’s not the way to handle it, but unfortunately this is what happens when a governor abdicates his responsibility to keep the safe streets.

JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Jesse, I hope that you're not trying to excuse that young man being shot like that.

WATTERS: I'm not at all.

WILLIAMS: There was a young man arrested who was not from Kenosha, from out of town, whose social media and the like suggest that he thinks of himself as a militia member. So he was there as a provocative act —

WATTERS: And I totally condemn that. And sadly, Juan, because of the situation, you're going to have people come in to communities and try to protect communities when the government doesn't.


WILLIAMS: Oh, so peaceful protesters are wrong.

WATTERS: That's not what we should be doing, but sadly, that is the reality of the situation.

WILLIAMS: But people coming from the outside with guns, they're OK.
