(ReliableNews.org) – There’s one thing you can always count on after the media reports on a police shooting — hysteria from progressive Democrats. Perhaps no one does a better job of politicizing those incidents than Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
She has been using the April 11 shooting death of Daunte Wright in Minnesota as an excuse to demand change. On April 20, she fired up a crowd of people protesting Wright’s death.
“Our communities are tired and exhausted,” she stated. “We’ve been pushing for transformational change,” she continued. “Black Lives Matter” isn’t just a hashtag.

Omar is using Daunte’s death and the conclusion of former police officer Derek Chauvin’s trial to push the National Police Misuse of Force Investigation Board Act. If passed, the act would establish a national board to investigate police shootings and be used as a tool to defund the police.
With social and political unrest on the increase, America needs real solutions to America’s rising violence. What it doesn’t need is continued efforts by leftist politicians to defund or disband the police.
