Nebraska state Sen. Ernie Chambers compared U.S. police to Islamic State terrorists and added that if he carried a weapon, he’d use it on a cop.
“My ISIS is the police,” Chambers said during a Friday legislative hearing.
“I wouldn’t go to Syria, I wouldn’t go to Iraq, I wouldn’t go to Afghanistan, I wouldn’t go to Yemen, I wouldn’t go to Tunisia, I wouldn’t go to Lebanon, I wouldn’t go to Jordan, I would do it right here,” he added. “Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do us daily.”
Nebraska Watchdog recorded the lawmaker’s statements and uploaded the audio to their website.
