Here’s some more on “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s call for ending all policing and incarceration, calling it “government-funded murder.”

I’ll just respond the same way I always do whenever someone on the far left advances some suicidally-stupid proposal: “You first.” Let Rep. Tlaib give up the protection of the Capitol police and personal bodyguards, and put out the word that she will not call the police while she is at work, commuting or at her home. After a year, we’ll check in and see how her year-without-policing is working out. I have a feeling it would be like the leftist city council members in riot-torn blue cities who voted to defund the police for everyone else but assign them to special duty to protect council members. Or the one in Portland, Oregon, who called 911 over a dispute with a Lyft driver just days after voting to cut $18 million from the police budget. The Internet never forgets, and neither do we.

While we’re on the subject, Rep. Tlaib and the other “Squad” members should also stop lionizing the police who dealt with violent protesters and protected them at the Capitol on January 6th if they’re going to condemn all the other cops dealing with violent criminals and protecting the public everywhere else. Reminder: the only violent death at the Capitol that we know of was caused by a police officer shooting an unarmed female protester who was crawling through a window at the time. That seems to fit Rep. Tlaib’s description of “government-funded murder” (the DC coroner even ruled that a “homicide,” yet we still don’t know the name of the cop who fired. The officer in the Daunte Wright shooting has already been named, despite the obvious danger to her and her family.)

So if you want to do away with all policing and jailing of criminals, then give up your own police protection for a while and then get back to us on how it’s going.

    These "out to lunch" members of Congress are not really trying to end all police, they mean only the ones that are not assigned to protect their flapping brain cells! Those cells flap because even with their "education status" there are lots of open space in their cranial storage containers! I have never heard or read such a high level of "Clap-Trap, Inane" statements in 78 years! It's too bad that their home residences are located in Portland, Oregon, or Seattle, Washington State. Then we'd hear them cry for more police protection. On Jan. 6, 2021,
    what were they doing? Crying for police protection, hiding under desks or in cloakrooms! Such brave people.

    You are a hateful person that has been against the United States for a long time. You receive all the benefits of an American citizen and you hate us. You can't even prove why you're so upset

    What absolute stupidity!! Who do these idiots think they are. Our judicial system may not be perfect but it’s better than any other country. These people would be thrown in prison for their behavior in some countries!! Might be a good idea!

    In FRANCE, we have similar events between police and "black live who matters". Cf "L'affaire TRAORE" . So Assa TRAORE was elected "woman of the year" by Time magazine. Time magazine recognize the "WOKES" even over Atlantic ocean!!
