Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, a member of the so called ‘squad’ of extreme leftist representatives, tweeted Monday that there should be “no more policing” as riots erupted in Minnesota following the shooting of Daunte Wright by cops.
Tlaib declared that the incident in which Wright was shot “wasn’t an accident” and that “policing in our country is inherently and intentionally racist.”
Tlaib also asserted “I am done with those who condone government funded murder,” further proclaiming that policing “can’t be reformed”:
Tlaib was immediately taken to task over the remarks, with Senator Ted Cruz branding her comments “insane”:
Even those on the left called out Tlaib’s extremism:
Others suggested that Tlaib’s comments might be adopted as a slogan for the Democrats in 2022:
Others noted that Tlaib’s words could lead to more unrest and violence:
Meanwhile, fellow squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., declared that “violence is a basic part of police interactions with communities of color. It must stop.”
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris also both tweeted support Monday for the family of Duante Wright.
Last year it was reported by the New York Times that Gun violence is up 358% in New York City since June 2019 as police are being stripped of resources in Democrat run cities nationwide.
The explosion in gun violence dovetailed with the disbanding of NYPD anti-crime units, a decision that meant around 600 plainclothes officers were taken off targeted raids and reassigned.
In addition, Democrat imposed “reforms” have meant that around 40% of people arrested on gun possession charges were released without bail in 2019.
Despite the crime spike, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously passed a resolution to replace the police department with a “community-led public safety system.”
While the likes of Tlaib and her squad call for abolishing the police, the vast majority of black Americans are diametrically opposed to such action.
Last year after unrest and violence targeting police, Harvard university Professor Roland Fryer urged that defunding the police would cause more loss of life, citing figures showing that there are “450 excess homicides per year” when police are not able to do their jobs proficiently.
“Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives,” professor Fryer wrote in an email to the College Fix.
Fryer has recently authored a research paper titled “Policing the Police: The Impact of “Pattern-or-Practice Investigations on Crime,” noting that police are less present when ‘viral incidents’ occur, meaning crime, including homicides increase… a lot.
