Newt’s World – Episode 100: Chaos in Our Cities – Guest: William J. Bratton

Mobs have taken over the streets of our cities.  Rioters cry to “Defund the Police” while shootings are on the rise in several major U.S. cities. How do we restore law and order and stop the cries to defund the police and instead, defend and support our men and women in blue?  Newt’s guest is Commissioner William J. Bratton.
