Detroit Police Chief James Craig called for far-left, America-hating, Muslim Democrat Rashida Tlaib to resign after her “no more police” and “no more incarceration” remarks. Craig, who is Black himself, dismissed Tlaib’s tweet as a “disgusting, knee-jerk response.”
Neonnettle Craig told WJBK on Sunday: “Let me just say this, when you talk about abolishing police, incarceration, you talk about safe cities — what do you think the residents in Detroit want?”
Tlaib even received backlash from members within her own party for her tweet saying policing is “inherently and intentionally racist.”
Tlaib made the calls in response to the shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. Wright was shot on Sunday afternoon as he attempted to escape from police officers who pulled him over because of expired license plate tags. Wright had a warrant out for his arrest for a weapons charge and for previously running from police.
Police later revealed that the officer shot Wright “accidentally” as she thought she was using her taser.
