Foz contributor Leo Terrell ripped Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest controversial remarks regarding law enforcement and imprisonment.
“If we want to reduce violent crime, if we want to reduce the number of people in our jails, the answer is to stop building more of them,’” Ocasio-Cortez said during a Bronx event Thursday, according to the New York Post.
AOC continued: “The answer is to make sure that we actually build more hospitals, we pay organizers, we get people mental health care and overall health care, employment, etc. It’s to support communities, not throw them away.”
“When you actually open a door to a jail and look at who is inside an enormous amount of people are dealing with untreated mental health issues,” she added.
“It is not acceptable for us to use jails as garbage bins for human beings. We need to treat people and so it is not a place for us to throw people for whom we do not want to invest in the actual holistic issues of their lives,” the New York congresswoman concluded.
In response, Leo Terrell made the following statement during Friday’s airing of Hannity:
“I want to make sure people understand this. 98-99% of officers are great. They protect us at 2:00 -3:00 AM in the morning. We can’t do without law enforcement.
“And to hear AOC talk about alternatives to law enforcement and prison — she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. And Chuck Schumer looks like a got a penchant stuck in his throat because he has to participate with that kind of nonsense in order to be part of the left-wing media.
“But let me be very clear. Only on Fox do we talk about this crime in the Democratic cities. You have not heard Joe Biden mention once about Black Lives Matter and Antifa’s involvement in these Democratic cities that commit. And the prosecution in these Democratic cities of these criminals, it does not exist because that is their base.” Video Below
