GOP Senator Tells Cop-Haters to Call Crackheads When In Trouble

Criminals are to blame for "surging" crime in Louisiana, says Senator John Kennedy

  • In a new campaign ad, Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) said that “woke leaders” blame the police for “surging” violent crime in Louisiana, when in reality, the blame lies with criminals.
  • Out of major cities in the U.S., New Orleans has the highest murder rate per capita and its police department is understaffed.
  • “Look, if you hate cops just because they’re cops, the next time you get in trouble, call a crackhead,” Kennedy said in the ad.
