This is a sitting member of the Congress of the United States of America:
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.

If she wants the complete end to policing in this country I could get behind that, as long as she really means an end to policing in this country. Not the half-assed bullshit we have now.
Because I’m going to take her at face value and include Federal policing in that call to an end of policing.
In such a case every gun control law is effectively null and void. Without police who will take my AR and high-capacity magazines?
Who will stop me from getting machine guns and high explosives?
Right now the law is not enforced against the likes of Antifa or BLM rioters but it is enforced against otherwise lab-abiding citizens on the other side of the political spectrum.
So if the law is going to be selectively enforced by one side in a way that benefits them, and one of their leaders calls for an end to all forms of law enforcement, I feel like I’m better off.
The cops won’t protect me from Antifa now, but if there are no cops, who will stop me from taking on Antifa with a M240 liberated from a National Guard armory like a pair of shoes from Foot Locker.
