(ReliableNews.org) – The State of Minnesota likely faces an extended period of racial unrest in the wake of the reportedly “accidental” shooting death of Daunte Wright, an unarmed black man in police custody, on April 11. The officer who fired the fatal bullet and the police chief both resigned. However, the incident already set off a political storm that likely won’t end any time soon.
Progressive firebrand and “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) didn’t waste any time politicizing the incident using her Twitter account. She posted a tweet alleging the incident wasn’t an accident without providing any evidence to support her inflammatory claim.
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.

She went on to make the standard call to “Defund the Police,” asking for an end to police, prisons, and “militarization.” According to her, the current law enforcement systems “can’t be reformed.”
Meanwhile, local officials in Minnesota set a curfew and declared a state of emergency. Of course, if Tlaib gets her way, there will be no one left to conduct emergency management and to protect our citizens, and nowhere to take individuals who break the laws and decide to take matters into their own hands and create a riot or worse.
