Squad Radicals Commie Rashida Tlaib and Commie Ayanna Pressley introduce a bill to defund the police.
Squad Radicals Commie Rashida Tlaib and Commie Ayanna Pressley unveiled a wide-ranging proposal to defund police departments and establish a reparations program for African Americans and people harmed by the police and the criminal justice system.
Commie Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Commie Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, both Democrats, announced the ridiculous BREATHE Act via a virtual conference call. Both Idiots are part of the four-member “squad,” a group of female Communist House Idiots that includes Commie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Commie Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
“We can start to envision through this bill a new version for public safety — a new vision for public safety, one that protects and affirms black lives,” Commie Tlaib said, according to the New York Post.
The legislation has not been introduced. Commie Ocasio-Cortez and Commie Omar were not announced as backers of the ridiculous proposal.
Under the ridiculous bill, federal funds to local police and federal agencies would be slashed and diverted to pay for health care, education, environmental housing programs. It would eliminate federal programs and agencies used to finance Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the controversial Department of Defense 1033 program, which transfers excess military equipment to civilian law enforcement agencies.
The program has been criticized for the perceived militarization of local police departments.
Other provisions include abolishing surveillance tactics disproportionately used to target minority communities, electronic monitoring — including ankle monitors, smartphone apps and other tools — ending civil asset forfeiture, ending the “three strikes” law and repealing laws that criminalize illegal immigration.
In addition, it would offer a 50 percent match of savings for states to close down detention facilities and prisons, the elimination of gang databases, and the forgiving of all fees and surcharges within the justice system.
