Fox Panelist On Police Brutality: 'Black People Kill Black People'

That's seriously your analysis?

Things got heated Monday on Fox News' "The Kelly File" when the show's panel began discussing a recent speech against police brutality by director Quentin Tarantino.

The director joined a rally on Saturday in New York City protesting police brutality. His involvement in the rally was criticized by the NYPD Union, who then called for a boycott of Tarantino films.

When activist Carl Dix began talking about a number of cases in which police officers have killed unarmed black men, former detective Mark Fuhrman -- who earlier in the conversation referred to Michael Brown as a "thug" -- responded to Dix's point by saying "black people kill black people."

Megyn Kelly asked Dix if the timing of the rally was "unfortunate" given the recent fatal shooting of NYPD Officer Randolph Holder last week.

"No. It was not unfortunate at all. Look, police are getting away with murder in this country," Dix said. "Just this year alone, more than 930 people have been murdered by police, and police admit that 300 of those people were unarmed and doing nothing wrong. I can't call that anything other than murder, even though the legal system exonerates them."

Dix said police are exonerated all the time for these types of incidents, which is why rallies such as the one where Tarantino spoke are so important for continuing to bring attention to policy brutality.

Kelly jumped in to note that a number of Tarantino's films have scenes that depict violence against cops and asked Fuhrman if the director's speech should really be heeded, since he has "glorified violence."

"That's a film, this is reality that we are talking about,"Dix jumped in before Fuhrman could answer.

Fuhrman then answered Kelly's question by saying he thinks the director does glorify violence in a "ridiculous way."

The guests argued back and forth before Kelly apologized for having to end the conversation to go to a commercial break.
