An “award-winning journalist” who has been covering the ongoing unrest in New York City and beyond over the police officer-involved death of Eric Garner was pelted with criticism on Friday night after proclaiming police forces should be disarmed.
“It’s time to take guns away from police,” journalist Tim Pool tweeted.
Nearly all the responses went against Pool’s suggestion.
“[S]tupidest thing I think I’ve ever heard,” one user wrote.
“Moronic comment,” another replied.
Another Twitter user asked, “Will the scary criminals give up their guns too?”
