MSNBC should demand Democrats running in the 2022 mid-term elections that they run on the radical leftist ‘Abolish Police‘ platform
MSNBC’s Jason Johnson said Tuesday on “Deadline” that “we need to abolish American policing as it currently exists” in light of the deaths of George Floyd and Daunte Wright during police incidents.
MSNBC Jason Johnson said during his Abolish Police diatribe:
“I’ve been saying we need to abolish American policing as it currently exists. It doesn’t work. And we don’t seem to have this sort of difficulty when we’re talking about any other government agency.
I teach my class with Morgan State students before this, we were having this discussion with a bunch of 19 and 20-year-olds, and I pointed out to them, I said, what’s the graduation rate for high school kids in Baltimore? The Baltimore graduation rate is only about 80%.” Wrong It’s 70.1%.
People are always screaming, oh my gosh, Baltimore public schools are terrible. They need to be taken over by the state. They need to be taken over by the government. Only 80% of these kids graduate.
Do you know the average homicides that are actually solved by police departments? Only about 35%. Wrong It’s 60.1%.
Do you know the number of rapes and sexual assaults that are solved by police departments? Less than 60%. Wrong It’s 32%.
Do you know the percentage, likelihood of being shot unarmed as a black person is, like, five times as likely than a white person? Wrong It’s 2.8.
Policing doesn’t work the way we’re doing it right now.”
Abolish Police? Go For It, Democrats!
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.
