SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let's go to Alex in Miami. Alex, you're on The Sean Hannity Show with Leo Terrell, Larry Elder, glad you called. I wish I could say "happy Friday," there's nothing happy about it.
CALLER: I really wanted to talk to you, I love your show and I appreciate everything, the sides that you're taking about this situation -- but I wanted to ask you, you know, when Colin Kaepernick was kneeling and everybody was saying it was about the flag, and he said it was about police brutality, do you agree with that now? Or, you still think there's not a problem with police brutality in America?
HANNITY: I think that that flag that we honor is a flag of freedom, and so many have fought, bled and died fighting under that flag, for the freedom of everybody, every American. We're not a perfect nation because human beings are flawed, but we are a more perfect union, and the Civil Rights Act of '64, the Voting Rights Act of '65 -- have we gotten perfect? Nope. We have a long way to go.
CALLER: I agree with all of those things, Sean, but --
HANNITY: We have a long way to go, so the answer to you is I -- I stand to honor those that gave me that right to be at that football game, and shed their blood and put their lives on the line for all of us, fighting under that flag.
CALLER: I agree with you totally. I'm an American too, I'm a fifth-generation American, my great-great-great-great grandmother was born here. I'm just saying that it's obvious that we have a problem with police brutality --
LARRY ELDER: No, we don't.
CALLER: And to ignore it -- and to ignore it, and say -- to change the narrative, and say that a flag is more important than police brutality is not American, Sean. It's not American.
HANNITY: Larry, is that you? Go ahead.
ELDER: Sean, no we don't have a problem with police brutality. We have a problem with individual officers who misbehave, and we ought to deal with them on a case-by-case basis.
CALLER: Is the officer a police officer? Is the officer the police officer? Then that is police brutality.
HANNITY: Okay, that is one officer, and the officers that surrounded him. You know, listen I will tell you, I don't know the exact number, but I know a lot of police officers, and thank you for your call. I know a lot of them, Leo Terrell, and they are dedicated to protect and to serve, and many police officers and police departments now are -- are literally looking at a melting pot, and you have all of America represented, if you're looking at this from the identity, political lens. But they're all serving their communities. They're all -- I don't think most cops get up, Larry, thinking, "Oh, I want to kill somebody today." Their jobs are dangerous, and most of them are great at what they do.
