New report from Breitbart, progressive “squad” member Cori Bush will introduce bill to replace police officers with “community-led first responders.”
Bush told NBC News “What this will do directly is save lives.”
“What we will have done is change the culture, removing their crisis care from one that has to deal with law enforcement to one that actually works with the providers that would take care of them normally, people that understand what they’re facing,” she continued.
“From the very beginning, my team engaged with local community groups all over the country about this legislation. People would have meetings and talk about activists and policing and protests, but they wouldn’t bring the actual people on the ground to the table. So that’s something I wanted to make sure I did differently. We have people involved who were locally based in St. Louis and in other parts of the country,” she added.
Earlier this month, NFL Legend Herschel Walker tweeted:
I have an idea…
For all these people who don’t want any police, I’d love to meet with American Airlines, Delta, and Southwest and make a deal to fly them to countries that don’t have police. I want them to be happy! @CNN
