No prisons. No cops. Why not just get rid of laws?
Democratic Socialist and firebrand for the extreme left Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) made an outrageous plea during a campaign event for former state senator and ex-Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner; she’s currently running to represent Ohio’s 11th Congressional District.
“I want to abolish our carceral system that’s designed to trap Black and Brown men,” AOC told a rally of Turner supporters in Cleveland. “I want justice. I want peace, and I want prosperity. That’s what I want.”
Turner’s biggest opponent is local Democratic Party chairwoman Shontel Brown, whose campaign released the following response: “Shontel Brown is the only candidate who from day one can work with the Biden administration and our house majority to deliver good-paying jobs, affordable healthcare, and affordable prescription drugs to northeast Ohio.”
“This isn’t about Nina versus any opponent; this is about the people versus big money,” AOC said, as reported by local Fox affiliate WJW.
AOC recently spent $1.5 million dollars on t-shirt designs for her online store, so she’s something of an expert on big money.
