Kirsters Baish| I think I can speak for the majority of Americans when I say that it’s nice to see celebrities offer their opinions when they are different from the opinion of the mainstream media.

ESPN reported that O’Neal has been supporting law enforcement for years. He was sworn in as a sheriff’s deputy a couple of years ago in 2016 and will be running for sheriff in a few years. He would rather further support cops than limit guns.
The basketball player went on WABC Radio’s “Curtis and Cosby” and stated, “The government should give law enforcement more money. Give more money, you recruit more people, and the guys that are not ready to go on the streets, you put them in front of the schools. You put ’em in front of the schools, you put ’em behind the schools, you put ’em inside the schools, and we need to pass information. … I would like to see police officers in schools, inner cities, private schools.”
