Abolishing Police and Prisons Goes Mainstream at the DNC

A panelist at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) called to abolish the police. More than that, they called for a complete end to law enforcement – from the police to ICE, to prisons in general.

The person spoke during the DNC’s LGBTQ caucus roundtable and did their own version of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine.’

“Why can’t, why can’t folks imagine a world without the cops?” they asked. “Why can’t folks imagine a world without prisons? Why can’t people expand their imaginations to include community care to include an abolitionist future?”

Abolish the Police or All Law Enforcement?

Why can’t people imagine a world without law enforcement?

Well, because people don’t want to imagine a world of anarchy and lawlessness, maybe? That would be my best guess.

The panelist then went from imagining all of this to practically demanding it, suggesting they’re not interested in any weak proposals from the DNC.

“I’m talking about like for real … for abolition, not just watered down DNC version of abolition,” they said. “We’re talking about abolishing the police. We’re talking about abolishing ICE. We’re talking about abolishing prisons.”

What could possibly go wrong?

The Extreme Views of the Democrats

This panelist’s views on law enforcement used to be outside any mainstream party, but are a consistent part of the Democrat platform nowadays. Calls to abolish the police are picking up steam.

Last month, Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley, two members of the Democrat ‘Squad,’ unveiled legislation brought forth by a group seeking to “abandon” police, prisons, and any form of punishment for lawbreakers.

“History is clear that we cannot achieve genuine safety and liberation until we abandon police, prisons, and all punishment paradigms,” the group – the Electoral Justice Project for the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) – states.

President Trump has blasted Joe Biden for being little more than a placeholder for extremists in his party should he win the White House.

“Joe Biden is the puppet of left-wing extremists trying to erase our borders. Eliminate our police. Indoctrinate our children. Vilify our heroes,” Trump claimed. “You know all about that.”

The President has been visiting battleground states in the Midwest, delivering a message of law and order which is diametrically opposed to the DNC’s platform.

“I’m here to help you. We will bring back law and order to your community,” Trump told a crowd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. “We will bring it back, and we will bring it back immediately.”

Imagine that.
