Nebraska State Senator: ISIS Has Never ‘Terrorized Us’ Like the Police Do

Senator Ernie Chambers also said that if he were to use a gun, it would be against a police officer.

Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers compared police in the United States to ISIS, adding that nothing ISIS has done to us is as bad as how we are “terrorized” by the police every day.

“My ISIS is the police,” Chambers said, during a legislative hearing on Friday, according to Watchdog.org.

“I wouldn’t go to Syria, I wouldn’t go to Iraq, I wouldn’t go to Afghanistan, I wouldn’t go to Yemen, I wouldn’t go to Tunisia, I wouldn’t go to Lebanon, I wouldn’t go to Jordan, I would do it right here,” he said.

“Nobody from ISIS ever terrorized us as a people as the police do us daily,” he said, explaining his belief that the mentality police officers have about black people is similar to the mentality of ISIS terrorists.

#related#Chambers also added that although he does not carry a gun, if he did, he would use it to shoot a police officer.

“If I was going to carry a weapon, it wouldn’t be against you, it wouldn’t be against these people who come here that I might have a dispute with. Mine would be for the police,” he said.

“And if I carried a gun I’d want to shoot him first and then ask questions later, like they say the cop ought to do.”
