    Fox News’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck justifies Sandra Bland’s arrest: She could have used cigarette as a weapon
    The "Fox & Friends" host suggested cops should live in perpetual fear of everyday objects and overreact accordingly VIDEO

      On Monday’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” Elisabeth Hasselbeck speculated that an “irritated” Sandra Bland could have “attacked” Officer Brian Encinia with her cigarette, because the co-host is “sure someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer.”

      Putting aside the fact that “the history of this land” contains a nearly infinite number of otherwise innocent objects that could, in a pinch, be used by someone, somewhere as a weapon. At this very moment, I have access to pens, a lamp, a cup of rapidly cooling green tea, not to mention the very keyboard on which I type these words — any one of which could conceivably be used to attack another human being.

      Just because I could toss a cup of lukewarm green tea at any police officer who walks into my office doesn’t mean that, should a police officer actually enter my office, he or she should feel immediately threatened by my Bigelow. There’s no logic to that logic — it’s effectively a license to live in perpetual fear of everyday objects, and Hasselback wants to grant it to law enforcement.

      But Hasselbeck continued, albeit oddly, stopping and starting almost as if her brain didn’t want allow her mouth to eject the words it’d ordered her to say. “What if, I mean, there are times, I’m sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer,” Hasselbeck said. “Maybe chucked it at him — pushed it at him?”


      “Absolutely,” former New York Police Department officer John Rafferty replied.

      “If [Officer Encinia] indeed felt it could be a potential threat, was that the wise thing to do?” she asked, referring to Encinia’s ordering Bland out of the car, then yanking her out when she didn’t immediately comply with his order.

      “I think because you know, you have to know you’re being recorded — you have to say, ‘Listen, I need you to step out to sign this warning,’” Rafferty said.

      “I wouldn’t want somebody stepping out with a cigarette,” he added. “I’ve had somebody try to put a cigarette out on me. It happens. I guarantee, you speak to many cops out there. But the way you say it, unfortunately you’re locked into it. Because now, it’s being recorded. Unfortunately, these officers have to remember that.”

    You do what the cops tell you to do. That's their job. Pure and simple.

    You seem to be on an angry rampage today Ving. You ever thought about stopping and smelling the roses? Or do you dwell this hard into them dumb tea baggers that you make yourself out to be a miserable sack.

    That picture in the article looks like she's starting to lose it. She wasn't hired for her brains. She better stay out of the sun.

      Elisabeth Hasselbeck Gets Burned on Social Media for Sandra Bland Remarks About Cigarettes as Weapons
      “Fox & Friends” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck weighed in on the Sandra Bland controversy on Monday, and social media wasn’t happy with what she had to say.

      “I’m sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer,” Hassleback said, suggesting that the arresting police officer was justified in asking Bland to put out her cigarette in the recently released dashcam video of the arrest.

      “Is she trying to justify murder?” wrote Twitter user @quaymorris, referencing the fact that Bland’s death is being handled in the manner of a murder investigation, though initial reports suggest suicide.

      Other users agreed that Hasselbeck’s comment blew the threat out of proportion. “Did Fox News think Sandra Bland could absorb the energy of her cigarette and hurl a fireball at the cop?” wrote @owillis.

      Bland’s body was found hanging in a Texas jail cell three days after she was arrested on July 10 for allegedly assaulting a police officer during a traffic stop. Dashcam video of the arrest released last week showed Texas state trooper Brian Encinia pulling Bland from her vehicle and threatening to tase her.

      I hope @ehasselbeck stretched before making that ridiculous reach about Sandra Bland
