Fox News anchor Shannon Bream on Wednesday pondered how observers would’ve known that the gunmen who perpetuated the terrorist attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo were bad guys if they didn’t know what their skin color was.

Bream’s comments were made during an in-depth conversation on the Fox show “Outnumbered” about why the terrorist attacks in France provided support for the militarization of police in the United States.

Co-host Eric Bolling said militarized police would dissuade “bad” guys from doing the “bad thing” they were thinking about doing.

Co-host Kennedy Montgomery, who goes by just the name “Kennedy,” noted that “sometimes bad guys don’t look like bad guys.”

That’s when Bream joined in.

“That’s my question about these guys because if we know they were speaking unaccented French and they had, you know, ski masks on, do we even know what color they were,” Bream said. “What the tone of their skin was. I mean what if they didn’t look like typical bad guys?’
