Abolish Prisons, Says AOC

 In Politics

AOC says we need to have a conversation  – to abolish prisons, even for violent offenders. Abolish prisons seems to be another one of her left wing rally cries.

The Daily Caller reported,

“Prison abolition” is a radical left-wing movement to abolish prisons altogether⁠—including for violent offenders. The Democratic Socialists of America, of which Ocasio-Cortez is a partvoted in August to create “a national Police & Prison Abolition Working Group.”

“Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter. “To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”

“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,” she added. “A cage is a cage is a cage. And humans don’t belong in them.”

Ocasio-Cortez seems to be obsessed with “cages,” evidenced by her drama stunt overlooking the parking lot at the border. But abolishing prisons altogether is not a wise idea. Yes, our justice system is flawed in many areas- which President Trump attempted to address with the “First Step Act” law signed in April.

The thing AOC fails to recognize is that the evil is this world doesn’t come from people like the President or Vice President. If  ‘abolish prisons’ were to become a reality, consequences for evil actions would be taken away. THAT would not be a good thing.
