Democratic sheriff on why he left party: 'Unbelievable' that Democratic leadership condones rioting

Indiana Sheriff on leaving Democratic Party over anti-cop sentiment

Sheriff Dave Wedding of Vanderburgh County, Indiana, discusses why he’s switching to the Republican Party on ‘Fox & Friends.’

Democratic leadership condoning riots is "unbelievable," said Sheriff Dave Wedding of Vanderburgh County, Ind., Wednesday.

“What I’ve witnessed across the United States is shocking,” Wedding told “Fox & Friends,” after leaving the Democratic Party.

“As a law enforcement leader, I can’t imagine 101 days of rioting, and it is condoned by the Democratic leadership. It’s unbelievable that they can do that to a law enforcement professional. As a sheriff, I could not imagine putting my deputies on the front lines of these riots night after night with no relief in sight,” Wedding said.

Wedding said that he sees that President Trump supports law enforcement because the commander-in-chief offered cities "under siege federal aid."

"They're not smart enough to take that aid to try to end the siege of their cities," Wedding said.
