‘Law & Order’ Writer Fired For Defending Law And Order Amidst Violent Riots
“Law and Order” writer and producer Craig Gore was fired from the show Tuesday after pledging on social media to defend law and order.
On Monday, Gore posed with a rifle in his doorway for a Facebook post warning protestors in the comments, “Sunset is being looted two blocks from me. You think I wont light mother*****s up who are trying to f*** w/ my property I worked all my life for? Think again…”

Dick Wolf, the show’s creator and executive producer, fired Gore days after hiring him in May to work on a spinoff of “Law and Order: SVU.”
“I will not tolerate this conduct, especially during our hour of national grief. I am terminating Craig Gore immediately,” Wolf said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
Gore’s talent agency, Paradigm, did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote that NBC acquired the new show in March and will revolve around a New York Police Department (NYPD) organized crime unit.
On Monday, the nation saw their seventh night of violent riots engulf American cities in the worst outbreak of civil disobedience in decades following the death of a Minnesota black man, George Floyd, in police custody.
While rioters destroy businesses and terrorize communities in the middle of a public health crisis, gun sales are soaring among a citizenry anxious over the lawless unrest sweeping neighborhoods, including those of minorities.
Fox Business reports that May gun sales broke previous records for firearms sold in a single month with more than 1.7 million picked off the shelves.
