Leave it to the nation’s loudest defenders of criminality and violence to call for an end to the criminal justice system. Leave it specifically to the multi-millionaire leader of that group to squawk about “justice” while local police work hard to enforce the laws, and peaceful, patriotic protestors rot in prison. In the wake of BLM’s embarrassment upon learning that stabbing somebody does in fact warrant deadly force, they’ve moved on from abolishing the police…to just “tearing the whole thing down” as they say, and abolishing the entire criminal justice system.
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors posted a video to her Instagram page Thursday saying people must “fight” for an “abolished” criminal justice system after the murder of George Floyd and police-involved shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant.
She did say that the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial for the murder of George Floyd was a “victory in accountability” but not a victory in getting rid of the criminal justice system.
“While we watched Derek Chauvin be convicted for murder, a black child named Ma’Khia Bryant was murdered by police, proving there is no justice. We must fight for abolition because in an abolitionist world, we would still have George Floyd and Ma’Khia Bryant,” Cullors wrote in her Instagram post.
She said in the video that activists must “fight for more” and “get us closer to a place where there are no jails or prisons or surveillance” in the U.S.
A jury found Chauvin guilty of all charges Tuesday for murdering Floyd after he kneeled on Floyd’s neck for several minutes during an arrest in Minneapolis in May 2020.
Jut minutes before Chauvin’s conviction, Bryant was fatally shot by a police officer after brandishing a knife in Columbus, Ohio.
Cullors has recently come under scrutiny for buying four homes worth a grand total of $3 million while she was promoting her activism. Read more…
