“It is NOT an officer’s duty to gamble with his/her life so you can happily and comfortably resist arrest,” Tomi Lahren tweeted. “What happened to Breonna Taylor is a horrible tragedy but for the Left to assert the officers came in to attack her in a blind and racist rage is a LIE and to burn down and ravage yet another community over it is not justice and not acceptable.”
While she didn’t directly say that Taylor was resisting, the public was quick to criticize the talk show host. Check out her tweets and a few responses below.
