JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Law enforcement was running towards the bullets. So all those kneelers in the NFL out there, they need to recognize they are kneeling during the anthem, they are kneeling, and we are supposed to be honoring law enforcement, law enforcement that is trying to save lives, not take lives. So I hope next Sunday when the anthem is played, people do kneel and out of respect to law enforcement.
