Ocasio-Cortez Says America Needs 'To Have A Real Conversation' About Abolishing Prisons
Daily Caller
PETER HASSON, SENIOR REPORTER
October 07, 2019 10:24 AM ET

<More NOT The Babylon Bee Here>

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez promoted "prison abolition" in a pair of tweets Monday morning.

Ocasio-Cortez called for "a real conversation about decarceration [and] prison abolition in this country," adding: "A cage is a cage is a cage. And humans don't belong in them."

"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 part, voted 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."

"We have more than enough room to close many of our prisons and explore just alternatives to incarceration," Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a follow-up tweet.

:rofl:

If you think abolishing prisons is a stupid idea, wait until you hear her ideas for "just alternatives to incarceration". Her misfiring neurons are a prodigious source of unintentional comedy. She's got enough material for a 10 season sitcom.

So let me understand. AOC talks to felons, whose stories she fully believes, and bases her policy recommendations on those stories. And she’s in the US congress. And her district may just vote for her again. Is this for real?

Okay-abolish prisons and move all the violent offenders to NYC and seal off the city. Unless they've got Snake, no one will escape!

I absolutely agree with her. As soon as people stop committing crimes, I am ready to have that conversation. Until then, I am not ready.

What she is describing is criminal on the part of the prison system.........but it has nothing to do with the woman being convicted of a crime by a jury of her peers. The woman was where she belonged.....she MAY HAVE BEEN criminally treated, if her claims are legit.

Are we still positive that wasn't a legit suggestion from a climate change activist?

I don't believe a word AOC says, and I don't believe a criminal.

Please. Let's have a conversation. Let everyone know what these people actually believe in.

And hey, if you want to try it out. Why not empty every prison and jail in the State of New York. Go ahead. See what happens. I know what will happen. But she obviously doesn't. And I guess the only way she can learn is to use her back yard as the test area.

"No."

Well, that was a short conversation.

Hey, execute a lot more worthless trash a lot more quickly, and there will be fewer people in prison.

So warm up that electric chair!

I think we need to seriously look into abolishing idiot politicians for the good of the republic. They can do far more damage than good.

Rikers as recently as 2018 housed teens. I know a woman who was sent there at 15. She was under the ‘care’ of CPS and was a runaway prostitute. She became a foster child of my sister.

Then there is the story of Kalief Browder.

Does this woman put any thought to anything she says? She is apparently retarded with no off switch.

Sooo.... does this mean that if someone rapes and tries to kill her she doesn't think prison is the right place for them?
That not only does she believe there is an alternative but that it's morally wrong?

You do realize that a switch would mean someone had the for sight or understood her future stupidity ahead of time....
I don't think it is humanly possible to understand or forsee such a level of stupidity ahead of time because it's unthinkable in the first place. How should I say.... it's at a level that is simply unimaginable.
