BILL O’REILLY (HOST): It might be that the system is overwhelmed which it sounds like it is in Baltimore.
CLARENCE MITCHELL: No, it was not the system, it's a bad arrest.
O’REILLY: I think all Americans, no matter when a citizen dies like Freddie Gray did, it's never the citizen's fault in the sense that Freddie Gray didn't get up in the morning and say I'm going to do something and I'm going to die. But Freddie Gray's lifestyle for many years, led him to this terrible thing which is not only impacted him and his family but all the police officers and that lifestyle should be condemned. I mean, this narcotics trafficking is awful. It is devastating.
