AOC now wants to abolish all prisons in the United States because it is not fair to lock someone up just because they rob, rape and murder. She came to that conclusion after visiting Rikers Island in New York. While she was there she claimed that an inmate has to drink from the toilet. I don’t believe her. I do believe she drinks from the toilet. That would certainly account for all of that crap coming from her mouth. She doesn’t say what she would do with the felons she wants to save from incarceration. She is really giving Maxine Waters a run for her money as the dumbest woman in the House.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said this week that it was time for the United States to have a serious conversation about “decarceration” and “prison abolition in this country.”
“Mass incarceration is our American reality,” the former bartender tweeted. “It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”
Ocasio-Cortez continued, claiming without evidence: “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. A cage is a cage is a cage. And humans don’t belong in them.”
“First of all, many people in jailed or in prison don’t belong there at all,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, apparently unaware of how the criminal justice system works. “Whether it’s punitive sentencing for marijuana possession or jailing people for their poverty & letting the rich free through systems like cash bail, we wrongly incarcerate far, far too many people.”
