Possibly the dumbest tweet ever...

.: "For the first time in generations Americans have reason to believe that our intelligence and law enforcement agencies gravely misuse the powers we have given them."

What else remains to be said?

Maybe if Tucker Carlson spent time with people other than his circle jerking friends at Fox he might realize that millions of Americans live in apprehension of the police.

Police shootings of unarmed black men.

Disparate sentencing for drug cases.

Racial profiling.

Stop and frisk.

For-profit bail bonding.

The Edward Snowden revelations.

The police were used throughout the South during Jim Crow and the Civil Rights Movement to beat and intimidate those who were fighting for their right to vote and participate in politics.

But now that wealthy white men with ties to Donald Trump are being investigated, well, that's the straw that broke the camel's back. Really?

CNN just an a story that a homeowner called the police to report a trespasser and upon police responding to the home, they arrested the homeowner and turned him over to ICE. The takeaway and lesson learned (especially for those living on the margins of society, the indigent and minorities) is to avoid all contact with the police, never provide the police with any information, do not call the police for emergencies and that both the criminals and the cops might kidnap you.
