” You know, he had actually currently survived a brain aneurysm and he had a 2nd lease on life, even at this childhood,” she said. ” He was extremely shy, extremely peaceful, a genuine worshiper, close to family.

” This in itself is horrific, however it is an example of lawlessness taking control of our nation,” Grace stated. “I prosecuted for a decade in urban Atlanta … among the murder capitals of the world, when drug murders were out of control. I’m really stressed we’re returning to that now.”
Perino asked Grace what could be done to combat the lawlessness.
” Something, get rid of bond reform where you can’t keep a perp behind bars,” Grace reacted. “And number 2, get real.”
Grace blasted politicians, but conserved particular refuse for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortiz, D-N.Y., who recently blamed a boost in New York City crime on people shoplifting to feed their kids.
” For someone like AOC to recommend that these criminal activities are because individuals are trying to feed themselves, kind of like [Les Miserables] however in New york city … that’s insane talk,” Grace stated. “That’s not what’s occurring here. And these are lifestyle criminal activities where people can shoot up on the street or urinate … It just results in a snowball effect. And defunding the police is … the antithesis of what we need.”
