Ocasio-Cortez Voices Support For Anti-Police ‘Punch A Cop’ Protests


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted her support for the anti-police ‘punch a cop’ protests that rocked Brooklyn.

“Ending mass incarceration means challenging a system that jails the poor to free the rich. Arresting people who can’t afford a $2.75 fare makes no one safer and destabilizes our community. New Yorkers know that, they’re not having it, and they’re standing up for each other.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez expressed her solidarity with the antipolice demonstrations that raged in Brooklyn over the weekend and included turnstile-jumping and defacing cop cars.

“Ending mass incarceration means challenging a system that jails the poor to free the rich,” the first-term Democrat wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

“Arresting people who can’t afford a $2.75 fare makes no one safer and destabilizes our community. New Yorkers know that, they’re not having it, and they’re standing up for each other.”

Hundreds of protesters turned out in the borough to rally against what they call police brutality by the NYPD and a crackdown on subway fare evaders.

The unrest began Thursday, Halloween night, in Brownsville as mobs pelted NYPD squad cars with boxes, trash and eggs, then mocked officers More

Does encouraging people to commit a crime make her an accomplice?

Twitter users had a few thoughts:

While President Trump promotes lower taxes, lower unemployment, protecting our border, a pro-business agenda and America first, Liberals like this bartender promote anarchy and violence. Let that sink in for a minute.
