Following the London terror attacks this weekend, MSNBC host Richard Lui wanted to know if police were overreacting to the attacks.
“What is the risk–there certainly is a risk of under reaction–but is there any risk of overreaction?” Lui asked Jim Cavanaugh, an NBC News law enforcement analyst.
London faced multiple terror attacks Saturday evening when a van plowed into pedestrians and attackers at Borough Market stabbed passersby. The attacks caused six civilian deaths.
“You know as we’ve been watching all of this live coverage…is there ever a point where you go, ‘well, that’s too much’ or ‘you shouldn’t be applying that amount of force there?’” he continued.[give_form id=”79809″]
Cavanaugh dismissed Lui’s question, saying, “the response cannot be too large.”
“Well in the city that’s experiencing the attacks–multiple attacks–really I don’t think the response can be too large,” Cavanaugh said.
