Rashida Tlaib Calls for ‘No More Policing’ or ‘Incarceration’ in the United States

Videos by OutKick

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) made fellow Squad members proud Monday, calling for “No more policing, incarceration, and militarization.”

No, we didn’t make this up. The radical congresswoman said and it left it on Twitter:

No more incarceration, huh? That’d sure cut down on violence.

The idiocy of Tlaib’s third paragraph speaks for itself. But I find the first to be more troubling.

Kim Potter, the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Wright, made an inexcusable mistake and should be held accountable beyond just losing her job, from which she resigned today. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a mistake, which is what the video evidence — of Potter yelling “taser” — supports. For Tlaib, with no evidence, to say it was intentional and racist is a reckless tactic to create more division.

Multiple statements from the shooting are true: Wright should have never resisted arrest; Potter made a split-second, unjustifiable mistake grabbing the wrong weapon; and the results are undeniably tragic. A tragedy to a black person perpetrated by a white person is not, on its face, racist. In this case, it’s just an unfortunate tragedy.

A reasonable takeaway from the incident is that Potter’s police department should, if nothing else, re-examine the way it trains its officers.

The unreasonable takeaway from it is to call for full-on anarchy, as Talib has done.

    • I totally agree. How do these idiots continue to get voted in? What is wrong with the people in their district to blindly vote Democrat election after election? And don’t get me started on the racial divide that the mainstream media keeps pushing for.

      • Her district is almost entirely Muslim and black. That is not a “racist” statement, it is simply fact. That said she would be right at home in Lilly white leftist Manhattan precincts. Same thing with Omar. Sprinkle in some white Marxists in her case, I think.

  1. I sure hope all these race peddlers personally experience the results what they are espousing for the rest of us to suffer. Karma can be a real bitch so be careful what you wish for you just might get it.

  2. Sigh… When oh when will any Democrat or media personality of color ever speak out against resisting arrest? I won’t hold my breath. This was clearly a horrible mistake but none of that would have happened had Wright just taken his medicine and gone to jail on his outstanding warrant. What result are folks that resist looking to achieve? Take for instance the drug dealer in New Mexico who assassinated a completely courteous and respectful police officer. Within a half hour the criminal was driven off the road and gunned down like the piece of shit he was. There is no peaceful result from running from the police. Please teach your sons and daughters this valuable lesson.

    • Notice the common thread in all of these police shooting incidents: every single “innocent” black man killed by police is a criminal, most felons with active warrants. Here is some advice: stop being a criminal as law abiding citizens don’t get shot.

      • Agreed. That goes back to the lack of family structure for most criminals (of all colors). Of course the Demokkkrats and media don’t care when a non-black person is gunned down by cops just the black ones. You are right though, stop being a criminal and if caught be a man/woman about it and take the punishment. It’s like suicide by cop is the goal.

  3. I agree with the sentiment of suspending her armed security detail first. Let’s move next to her district. Suspend all policing and set up call centers where people can call in for what used to be police assistance. If you don’t get a live person then leave a message and some sort of social/ crisis worker will get back to you hopefully in a timely fashion. It sounds like she wants people to possibly sacrifice their personal safety. So you know what Ms. Tlaib? Take a leadership role, you go first.

  4. Sure. Introduce your bill for that and let’s see how that goes. It’s just hot air to whip up the base that will come to nothing like the GOP and MLB antitrust.
