Kamala Harris was terrified at the message that her family put out.
The insane proposal is deeply damaging to Democrats.
Kamala Harris was staggered at an anti-police message that hit close to home.
While running her failed presidential campaign, Vice President Kamala Harris promised a sweeping overhaul of the criminal justice system.
Harris promised to restrict the legal use of deadly force by police, end the incarceration of juveniles in adult prisons and legalize marijuana at the federal level.
Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, has gone further and is calling for defunding all police following the release of bodycam footage of an officer who fatally shot a 13-year-old.
“He was 13 years old. His hands were in the air. Defund the police,” Meena wrote on Twitter, appearing to refer to the death of Adam Toledo.
“The offender still turned with a gun in his hand,” President of the Chicago Police Union John Catanzara said Thursday, defending the officer who shot the boy. “This occurred in eight-tenths of a second.”
“He would’ve been justified to shoot multiple times,” Catanzara said of the officer on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”
“The video shows Toledo turning toward the officer with his hand still behind him. He drops the gun behind him and turns with his hands up and in view of the officer. At the same time, the officer fires the fatal shot. The space of time is a fraction of a second, and it is difficult to tell whether the officer knew Toledo was complying with his order when he fired.” The Daily Wire reported.
The Democrats take complicated rare situations involving the police and twist them in order to attack the entire profession.
Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) also claimed that policing should be abolished after the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright who was shot as he resisted arrest.
“It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist,” Tlaib said. “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.”
While there are rare cases of the police abusing their power, getting rid of the police would lead to many more homicides.
The Democrats hurt themselves and the communities they represent supporting defunding the police.
Former President Barack Obama, however, criticized it as a “snappy slogan” in an interview from December 2020.
“I guess you can use a snappy slogan like ‘defund the police,’ but you lost a big audience the minute you say it, which makes it a lot less likely that you’re actually going to get the changes you want done,” Obama said at the time.
