Rashida Tlaib calls for the complete abolition of policing in America


DETROIT, MI – Rashida Talib, a progressive leftist congresswoman from Michigan this week has called for the abolition of policing in America. Her comment comes after a Brooklyn Center police officer shot and killed 20-year-old Duante Wright as he attempted to flee a routine traffic stop while struggling with police.

The officer who fired the fatal shot, Kim Potter said she accidentally shot Wright. Potter claims she thought she was using her taser on the suspect, but instead had her gun drawn. She said it was an accident and has since resigned from the police department.

Tlaib used the unfortunate incident to push her political agenda to abolish police officers nationwide.

“It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence,” Tlaib said. “I am done with those who condone government-funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.”

Tlaib ally, former Brooklyn bartender turned congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the shooting state-sponsored murder.

“Daunte Wright’s killing was not a random, disconnected “accident” – it was the repeated outcome of an indefensible system that grants impunity for state violence, rewards it w/ endlessly growing budgets at the cost of community investment, & targets those who question that order,” AOC said.

Fellow “squad” member Illhan Omar, a Wisconsin Congresswoman also used the event to continue her assault on the law enforcement profession in the country.

“This violence is a basic part of police interactions with communities of color. It must stop,” she said.
