Retired football star Herschel Walker in a Wednesday tweet said people who don't want police should go to other countries. 

“I have an idea... For all these people who don’t want any police, I’d love to meet with American Airlines, Delta, and Southwest and make a deal to fly them to countries that don’t have police. I want them to be happy!” Walker wrote on his official fan page.

The tweet follows one from earlier this week where the former Dallas Cowboys star offered to volunteer as a black leader in an effort to bring congressional members together with "leaders from all ethnic groups, both left and right, to find solutions."

“We’re civilized people,” Walker, 58, wrote on Sunday. “Why can’t true congressmen/women and senators get together with leaders from all ethnic groups, both left and right, to find solutions... unless certain people in Washington don’t want to see a change. I’m volunteering myself as one of the black leaders.”
