NFL Legend Herschel Walker Calls for Unity During Times of Mayhem

On June 3, 2020, former NFL running Herschel Walker declared that he was disappointed with politicians for “sitting on the sidelines doing absolutely nothing” until President Trump attempted to reestablish law and order in the days that followed protests in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and other cities across the nation.

“I’m upset,” Walker commented. “Things are getting worse. We’re not coming together as a people.”

Walker, a Trump supporter, slammed the media for fomenting the racial divide in the country, and he said that the people who are destroying property and looting during the protests are “criminals.” Walker even said that “peaceful protest must be from 9-to-5.”

“It’s enough,” Walker continued. “It’s time for us to come together.”

In a post on Instagram, Walker urged leaders to bring “swift justice” to non-peaceful gatherings. He also expressed his support for the police, and he would support the protesters who organized peacefully.

The right to free speech, along with the right to bear arms, are among the most sacred of American freedoms.

However, looters and other criminals are sullying these protests by engaging in blatantly criminal acts.

Law enforcement needs to remember its duties and actually restore order.
