US has 'a systemic problem with crime': Thompson
National Sheriffs' Association executive director Jonathan Thompson explains why rising crime is not a partisan issue on 'Your World.'
Our Executive Director, Jonathan Thompson, spoke with Neil Cavuto regarding the increased crime rates.
"Crime is not a blue or a red issue - it's not Republican, it's not Democrat....We do have a crisis on our hands...sheriffs have asked for help, sheriffs need help."
"We have a systemic problem with crime," he continued. "We all in law enforcement having been saying this since before November of last year. We saw the problem coming."
"This is probably the single most important infrastructure item the country needs. If you can't have a safe street, you can't have a safe community. You can't buy anything, you can't live your life, so we have to do something."
