Former NFL running back Herschel Walker has offered to work with airlines to send people who want to defund police to countries without them.
Walker, who played 12 years in the NFL, took his thoughts to Twitter in response to people who basically want to wipe out police departments in response to the death of George Floyd and many more.
“I have an idea … For all these people who don’t want police, I’d love to meet with American Airlines, Delta and Southwest and make a deal to take them to countries that don’t have police.” I want you to be happy! Walker wrote.
His tweet follows his earlier one where the former Dallas Cowboys star offered to volunteer as a black leader in an effort to bring congressional members together with “leaders from all ethnic groups, both left and right, to find solutions.”
“We’re civilized people,” Walker, 58, wrote on Sunday. “Why can’t true congressmen/women and senators get together with leaders from all ethnic groups, both left and right, to find solutions… unless certain people in Washington don’t want to see a change. I’m volunteering myself as one of the black leaders.”
Emotions have been running high since the killing of George Floyd, which was one of several high-profile deaths of black citizens around the country that have caused outrage and escalated racial tensions.
