-- special live studio audience position of Hannity all right here's -- case in Baltimore.
Where you had a number of black youth speed and Hispanic man they were eyewitnesses.
This is portray bond expletive.
Is what the eyewitnesses heard.
-- stars Fox News radio you wrote about two other stories one -- Memphis wanna Mississippi tell us about the stories you found out.
That's right John and both very similar stories the wanna Mississippi happened and a small town about forty miles south of Memphis.
A white man was out jogging along a highway a car pulls up three black guys and side.
They they asked them for directions that guy went over the body holding into the vehicle.
They asked him if he knew -- -- -- When he replied yes that they started to pummel him.
He was dumped along side of a road taken to a hospital with non life threatening injuries I had a chance to talk the police chief and I said.
You know are you are looking -- hate crime charges here and he goes well we're gonna investigate this because we really don't know why this happened.
Then there was this really -- yes that that that was an exact quote we don't know why this happened.
That there was another -- up in Milwaukee where a white man was out going about his business and and he was attacked and beaten and thank goodness our neighbor an African American man assault was happening it came to the rescue and pulled pull this guy out of -- out of the game.
But you asked a question few moments ago -- why is the president silent.
And I believe there's I believe it's intentional.
And I believe that the president's not trying to divide the nation I think he's trying to tear it apart.
I think that's exactly emotionally and that's I believe that's what this administration a different -- where -- hello how many agree with.
-- statement shortens.
Probably no show of hands how many agree with -- as the president -- how many think the president could calm the tensions right now but it's not so much.
I don't quite yes -- End of the day this is all about politics remember never waste letter crisis go to waste here we have a tragedy that's being.
Made into a crisis why -- little we hear this in mid term elections coming.
They need the black vote to come out like he did in 2012 in order you're -- -- -- regret for me a -- but because my.
Asking something -- this civil rights leaders wire all the conversations about -- civil rights is only about race right that's all this conversation is not.
Wait let me finish going it's going to be hard for you.
But but what about women women are also protected class and what about that all one injury.
Where why or why we have civil rights leaders walking up and on the streets and -- supporting the women.
Saying that the women all of auto insurer you know and unique perspective -- you know why didn't you do.
All right out of state one right well we have the president and now he's -- a black person he's not a white.
He's the president of the United States -- as -- ERS game it'll.
When is he going to step up and Vietnam president -- tell the people calm down we had a verdict let's cool it.
You know why he's not a -- he's not only -- -- whereas.
-- let me up.
-- ask a question how many think the president is should step up now.
Anyway -- does anyone disagree with that.
You disagree your disagree god and up in the back this book if there's an investigation potentially going on it's not appropriate he commented over the weekend I don't understand the presidential bashing it's completely -- it she spoke and spoke to.
We can we can only -- -- -- Where do we can't wait one at a time machine.
Initially -- it's like.
Different -- Pretty -- like what is that it wasn't wrong.
-- -- You -- making political it's not about.
-- -- About it didn't I mean I went behind letting them.
-- -- Peter Johnson who will become friends -- I don't -- I don't think on this who have to have I want I want to ask the legal question yeah does that taint the jury pool for is it appropriate for president to say that I interject themselves.
I think when a president speaks in that way he's trying to inject empathy but at this point we need to respect.
For justice and I think Americans.
Black white people all -- -- saying Mr.
President speak in a way that that that says our rule of law means something.
And also say to people who are upset about the verdict yes I understand your -- about the verdict but we need to respect.
The system at the same time that -- direct.
Attorney general holder and not -- -- it will conduct an investigation fifteen months ago either make the indictment today.
Was shut up it and it and that's really important because we're playing race rule let.
In this country and and why have an obligation to speak why would the president allow him to -- before the NAACP and say what he said to that.
Well it -- hit it it creates the inference.
That it's it's about base building -- 2004 team.
It creates the inference that it's about politics that it creates the inference that it's merely political the problem is.
That people will be hurt.
People will die unfortunately in racial tensions these stories are getting until summer of 2013.
Are we will.
We'll take a break and we will come back and we will continue our live audience edition of Hannity.
