SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Look at this guy's record, look at his arrest record. You know, remember this is 8:30 in the morning. He runs from cops probably because of the past arrest record this guy had, and maybe the likelihood that he's up to no good at that time in the morning. And, here's the deal. Okay they didn't put the seat belt on the guy. I would say that. But they don't know which cop. In this particular case, the cop said that it was not his duty to put the seat belt in this case. 

ERIC GUSTER: And that's one of the problems. Now, let's go back to the arrest record. His arrest record does not matter, it does not matter. The only thing that --

HANNITY: It doesn't matter legally in the court, but it matters in reality. 

GUSTER: It does not. You can't say, oh, he's been arrested a hundred times or 20 times, whatever it is. Oh, he's dead, so that's okay? 

BO DIETL: No, that's not okay. 

HANNITY: Nobody said that. 

GUSTER: You even implied that, Sean. 

HANNITY: No, I'm saying that he's obviously not a pillar of the community. And the problem is that the cops knew him, and he ran from the cops. Who runs from the cops at 8:30 in the morning? 

GUSTER: So what? He's still a man who deserves a fair trial.
