Democratic Rep Rashida Tlaib is calling for an end to policing and incarceration of criminals in a bid to reach out to the Democratic base. She was reacting to the shooting death of Daunte Wright, who broke free during his arrest on an outstanding warrant and tried to make a getaway.
There is some question as to whether the shooting of Wright was justified or not. I won’t render an opinion until all the facts are in.
Tlaib has a long history of siding with criminals in policing matters and her opinion is jaded because of that fact. But imagine a world where there are no police and no one ever goes to prison.
There would be nothing to deter criminals from stepping up the number of crimes they commit since there would be no consequences if they are caught. Especially after the Democrats seize guns owned by law-abiding citizens for protection.
“It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist.”
“Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government-funded murder.”

No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can't be reformed.

Tlaib doesn’t even consider Wright responsible at all for the4 incident. Did the cop commit the crime Wright was wanted for? Did the police try to arrest Wright peacefully or did they come out shooting? They tried to arrest him and it was his decision to try to break free and flee in his car. So, even if the cop acted badly, Wright did participate in the tragedy that ended his life, regardless of what the female cop did.
Tlaib then went one step further with her frustration and called for an end to “policing” in America, claiming the institutions across America “can’t be reformed.”
“No more policing, incarceration, and militarization,” Tlaib concluded in her tweet. “It can’t be reformed.”
Tlaib also retweeted a tweet to her page that mocked the “accidental” death of Wright, which stated, “You spelled murder wrong again.”
According to reports, Wright was allegedly taking off in his car after an attempt to arrest him when one officer at the scene shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
