What was she thinking?
According to Breitbart News, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to spark the defund the police movement but instead humiliated herself.
The New York lawmaker answered a few questions, one of them being, “What does an America with defunded police look like to you?”
“The good news is that it actually doesn’t take a ton of imagination,” Ocasio-Cortez began in her typed response, seemingly blaming the struggles of urban areas, almost entirely, on overemphasizing police departments.
“It looks like a suburb. Affluent white communities already live in a world where they choose to fund youth, health, housing, etc more than they fund police,” she wrote.
“These communities have lower crime rates not because they have more police, but bc they have more resources to support healthy society in a way that reduces crime,” the lawmaker continued, contending that white communities “bend over backwards to find alternatives to incarceration for their loved ones to ‘protect their future,’ like community service or rehab or restorative measures.” You can read the full article here.
