Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) promoted “prison abolition” in a pair of tweets Monday morning while claiming that incarceration “is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery.”
Far-left Ocasio-Cortez called for “a real conversation about decarceration [and] prison abolition in this country,” adding: “A cage is a cage is a cage. And humans don’t belong in them.”
Prison abolition is a radical left-wing movement to abolish prisons altogether—including for the most violent and dangerous offenders. The Democratic Socialists of America, of which Ocasio-Cortez is a part, voted in August to create “a national Police & Prison Abolition Working Group.”
“Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”
“Yesterday morning I spoke with a woman who was thrown in Rikers as a teenager. Put in solitary confinement for MONTHS, aka torture. Force-fed pills. The conditions were so bad, she too had drank out of toilets,” she added. “A cage is a cage is a cage. And humans don’t belong in them.”
I do not like her.
Why not she could be the female answer to Hitler...
She would not make Hitler a foot stool...:)
Don't you mean... she would not make Hitler's footstool. I doubt she has the carpentry skills to make Hitler a foot stool.
She has a good point... do away with prisons by executing all seriously violent criminals and do like Cuba... deport the rest... say, to Cuba. Drop them in the ocean a few hundred yards off the Cuban coast or in a leaky rubber raft a mile or so from shore and let them migrate to Cuba... the home of utopian living.
