Ridiculous: Rashida Tlaib Calls for ‘No More Policing’ After Daunte Wright Shooting
Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan is currently facing intense criticism after she called to stop “policing” following Daunte Wright’s fatal shooting by a police officer.
On Twitter, the Michigan representative said that the incident wasn’t an accident. She also used “inherently and intentionally racist” to describe policing in the country, and said that law enforcement used “aggression and violence” on Wright. Tlaib then said that she’s “done” with people who condone what she called “government-funded murder.”
The representative then called for a stop to “policing, incarceration, and militarization,” adding that the issue is something that “can’t be reformed.”
Following this Twitter rant, several Congress members reacted to it and the issue at hand.
For one, Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) decided to distance himself from Tlaib’s stance, given his comments to Fox News.
On Tuesday, Kaine admitted that the country still needs reforms related to “qualified immunity,” but he says he doesn’t want to disrespect the police. Instead, he said that police reform should happen when and where necessary.
Republicans Slam Tlaib on Twitter
Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress quickly criticized her statements.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, for one, described Tlaib’s comments as “Insane” on Twitter. He said it explicitly shows how much Democrats “want to abolish the police.”
“No more policing”
It doesn’t get more explicit than this that Democrats want to abolish the police. https://t.co/GPYF9qkpmg

Meanwhile, Rep. Ken Buck (Colo.) also posted on Twitter, saying that if Tlaib doesn’t want bad gust to go to jail or if she doesn’t want the police protecting cities, they should start with her district to see what happens.
If you don’t want bad guys in jail or police protecting our cities, why don’t we start with your district and see how it goes? https://t.co/drDfB7qx7u

Incidents of looting and riots ravaged Minneapolis last Sunday following the shooting of Wright by a police officer. The incident happened in Brooklyn Center, Minn., which is just 10 minutes away from where George Floyd was pinned on the neck by former officer Derek Chauvin last May.
The Brooklyn Center Police was not able to immediately identify Wright nor did they let people know his race. Following this, Brooklyn Center Police released a statement, saying law enforcement stopped a person right before 2 p.m. on Sunday. After they found out that the driver had an outstanding warrant, they tried to arrest him. However, the driver went back into the vehicle and drove away, as per the police. When he did, an officer fired at the car and hit Wright.
As per the police statement, the said vehicle went several blocks before it crashed into another vehicle. A female passenger was in the other car, and she only suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Prior to this incident, Tlaib, a part of the “progressive squad,” used the slogan “defund the police” already.
In May 2020, following the death of Floyd, Tlaib posted on Twitter, using the said slogan. In the post, she said that there is a valid reason for dismantling the “racist” system the country currently has in place. She also pointed out that the said system has “led to this pain.”
Similar statements have managed to divide Democrats.
Great idea! I’m all for it. Don’t tell her they’ll be coming for her too, the liberal thugs eat their own as well! I bet the first thing she does is dial 911🤣
What do you expect from a Muslim terrorist?
Put this ugly **** in charge of law enforcement in a city for a day to see how she would do it. If she thinks cops kill people wait until people need to police themselves.
Looters hanging from street lights might slow things down and they would even have to be deceased. Doused in feces or rotten fruit and vegetables mixed with a little urine, maybe.
A tragedy for sure, BUT if he had not violently resisted, the officer would not have reached for her taser and mistakenly grabbed her weapon.
Why, why, why do black people feel the need to resist lawful police orders. If he says “Show me your hands”, just do it. If he says “Get out of the car”, get the hell out of the car, slowly. And don’t tell me you are afraid of getting shot if you get out. You are 1000% more likely to get shot if you don’t follow orders or if you resist.
If the cop is wrong, fight it in court.
Tell Rashida , 90 % of shootings are the results of the detained person trying to flee, or becoming physical with the police, I guess they don’t understand to be polite, respectful,and cooperate. Doing THIS would save lives
Lay off the police for 6 months and make Tlaib be the lone cop but be sure to give her an umbrella to defund herself with~
All those foreign female dumocrates, are not worth talking about.
The people that voted for this racist Muslim should do all the policing.
How about NO MORE MUSLIMS IN CONGRESS OR EVEN BETTER NO MORE MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES/
They or their parents came here from war torn Countries and now they want America to become as disjointed and disrespectful as their Countries are. This woman doesn’t realize that when the POLICE are gone so is SHE. We would turn the United States into another 3rd world country.
Name one Muslin that fought on either side of are civil war? She shouldn’t have a say on anything.
People need to realize that without the police, most, if not all, crimes will carry the death penalty.
You can’t fix stupid. Maybe we should get rid of her security folks
This is the kind of stupidity that politicians really think they have a chance at garnering support for with our inept leadership of “Joke”, “Commi”,and Barack!!! Stupidity in all its’ splendor!!!!
Follow the orders of the officer or suffer the consequences. Open fire on looters and rioters. I don’t care how mad you are, you do not have the right to riot! You do not have the right to loot! Stay home or get shot dead.
I hope someone breaks into her home , and steals everything she has. Who is she going to call ? Ghost Busters maybe ?
I am enbarassed to be an American. Who voted in all these stupid people, starting with Biden and Harris?
Here’s mine: “NO MORE RASHIDA TLAIB!”
It’s surely disappointing to think there are enough people lacking in common sense as to elect a person spewing nonsense, and worse yet ,using race as a tool to gain power. The only benefactor of this is herself. And no, you won’t see her personal home area go without police.
If people would quit resisting arrest there would be different outcomes. You have a brain use it properly. Now she doesn’t have a brain. Take her bodyguards away. She will be singing a different tune. The ignorance of some people amaze me.
Hey let’s give her idea a try for a day. Even better on the day that the police stand down I say about 500 patriots go to her home and “thank” this terrorist personally for her idiotic idea. I bet the first thing she would do is dial 911 when we arrived!!
statistics show that more white males are killed by the police every year. I read some where one time that a person that doesn’t want police and doesn’t believe in God, if someone breaks in on them the first thing they will do is call the police & pray to God that they get there in time
And NO MORE Muslim folks in our government!👎🏼👎🏼🤜🤛
She’s just a race baiter…..and needs to be downed👏👏👏
Let’s start with defunding the Capitol Police. Remove any police and security guards from the area of Capitol Hill. No guns allowed for anyone on Capitol Hill. Then move out radially from there a couple miles every day to expand the no gun zone (no National Guard, no cops, no private security guards).
How long do you think it would take for the anti-police, anti-gun folks to get twitchy?
Okay Rashida, let’s do it your way. So long as you agree to have them dropped at your house for rehabilitation. You dolt.
What will she say when she looses her Secret Service Protection. No police or armed guards for her or the Squad. Then remove them all from Congress As anti Americans
I wonder what the race of the Knoxville school shooter was? I’m pretty he’s not white or we world definitely heard already. Ummm!🤔
We need a purge of this country!
God and We the people are asking our fellow Democrats in the House and Senate to leave their party and come over to the Republican Party as soon as possible! That is the only way to stop these far left idiots from ruining our country. Will you step up for the good of America? 🙏🏻🙏🏻
It’s simple. Do not commit crime and the odds of something bad happening are vastly decreased.
