Fox News host Tucker Carlson grilled Sen. Mike Braun over his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and his new legislation that would minimize qualified immunity for police officers.

Carlson asked the Indiana Republican about his recent announcement of support for Black Lives Matter on Monday. The Fox News host noted that the movement has called for several controversial policies, including the defunding of police departments. Braun clarified his remarks and told Carlson that he supports the rights of the movement to protest peacefully.

"I support anybody that does have a grievance to be able to air it, and that is it. That doesn’t mean all lives don’t matter, it just means that if you think a certain sector of society has a grievance, it ought to be through transparency and the willingness to debate it and get it out there," he said.

Carlson questioned Braun's proposed legislation that would weaken qualified immunity for officers. Qualified immunity is a legal protection for law enforcement officials that prevents them from being named in civil rights lawsuits in most cases.

The Fox host said Braun's legislation would make it easier for criminals to sue officers. He pointed to a recent statement from Braun in which he argued that qualified immunity will prevent the family of Rayshard Brooks, a black man who was fatally shot by police in a Wendy's parking lot after he pointed a Taser at an officer, from suing the officers involved in his death. Carlson asked the senator what he thought officers should have done after having a weapon pointed at them.
