One of the biggest stories this week has been the pool party in McKinney, TX where police officers broke up an out-of-control pool party. The media has focused on a viral video of a police officer pulling his gun out while confronting a number of teens, but Glenn thinks there is a larger issue that is completely being ignored. Why has the media decided to focus on this story?
Glenn and Stu both said that the story seems to be on air 24/7 and every website is because it drives ratings and clicks.
"I can see how it made news. I mean, she's in a bikini. She doesn't look like a threat," Stu said.
"It's cops on black. Again, she's in a bikini. They're teenagers. They don't look like a threat. She's a girl. And all of those things add up to ratings. That's it," Glenn said.
Glenn said that when he was growing up, the parents and neighbors would have been on the side of the police, not the kids. In fact, he thinks that parents should have helped round up all the kids involved with the incident.
"I believe, at least in my small town, if we were doing that and cars would have been driving by, cars would have stopped and helped the cops corral the kids," Glenn said on radio. "Adults would have stopped and said, knock it off. And somebody in that crowd would have known those kids parents and that would have put the fear of God in you. Would have put the fear of God in you."
"We don't get those speeches anymore. We don't give those speeches anymore. I give those speeches. I give those speeches probably to other people's kids in the line at the supermarket. You know what, kid, let me tell you something. I scare the crap out of them. There's a little something to be said for that."
Stu said that people drive by and don't stop because they are scared to get involved. They could be sued or accused of something. Glenn couldn't help but agree, and sees it as part of a larger issue in America.
"They're afraid. Why don't you say things anymore? Because you might be called a nasty name. You might be destroyed. They're making you afraid," Glenn said.
"Every time you speak out, every time you don't comply -- God forbid you say something about Caitlyn Jenner like Clint Eastwood, they'll hammer the snot out of you. They'll destroy your job. They'll destroy you socially, they'll make your name the worst bigoted name out there. You cannot be afraid. If you're afraid now, you wait. You stay silent much longer, and it will get much, much worse," he said.
