(AbsoluteNews.com) – Many Liberals are trying to explain the “Defund the Police” movement. Most of them admit the messaging is really, really bad. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is not one of those people.
During a June 14 interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Omar made it clear to host Jake Tapper that she wants to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department when she says “defund the police.” She went on to explain she doesn’t think reform will work because the department is “rotten to the root.”
"You can't really reform a department that is rotten to the root. What you can do is rebuild," Rep. Ilhan Omar explains her calls to defund the police departments. "No one is saying crimes will not be investigated." #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/t3q10iJv3C

Omar said she wants to rebuild the department but it seems that she’s suggesting the only way that can happen is if all of the officers are fired so that they can “rebuild.” That’s all well and good, but what happens in the meantime? If all of the cops are terminated and then the city rehires new ones, who takes care of everyone during the transition?
Keep in mind, the officers in the Minneapolis killing of George Floyd lost their jobs very quickly. This isn’t a department that just swept it under the rug, so it fails to demonstrate they’re “rotten to the root.” It seems as though they’re trying to address the problems but that’s not good enough for people like Omar.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
