Detroit Police Chief Says Will ‘Throw Her A Goodbye Party’ After Rep. Tlaib ‘Reckless’ Comments

In an interview with local news station WJBK Fox 2 in Detroit, Detroit police Chief James Craig had some serious words about Representative Rashida Tlaib’s “reckless and disgusting” comments. “When you look at reckless comments made by those who sit, and I won’ say sit in seats of leadership; I don’t use leadership loosely. But who sits in elected seats of influence, and you make reckless, disgusting comments that do nothing but inflame tensions; that’s not being responsible. That’s not leadership.”

As Chief Craig was making his comments, Fox 2 put one of Rashia Tlaib’s tweets on screen that read: “it wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government-funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization, It can’t be reformed.”

The Fox 2 segment then aired a clip of Tlaib what appeared to be amongst protesters where she stated, “and to say that you can police away homelessness, to police away poverty, to police away all these ills in our country right now, that’s not the way to approach it; I’m done.”

Tlaib continued, “The structure in place for policing has left more, more of our Black neighbors and brown communities feeling so incredibly unsafe, and it’s unfair, there’s no accountability. Instead, they’re faced with ya know, just a number of militarization and criminalization.”

Chief Craig responded, “you know what? If I made comments on par with her they’d be calling for my resignation. The news anchor then asks Craig “should Rashida Tlaib resign?” Craig answered, “I would love if she would resign, I’d throw her a goodbye party. I’d have the party Charlie; I’ll throw her a party, let her go.”

Craig continued, “who is she speaking for, Charlie? Let me just say this; when you talk about abolishing police, incarceration, you talk about safe cities, what do you think the residents in Detroit want? I know, I speak with them.” Going back to Tlaib’s comments insinuating she does not speak to directly to the community as does Chief Craig, he added once again that her comments are “reckless, Charlie. So, is she truly representing the people or is she representing a fringe group?”

    She uses off duty police officers to protect her while she demeans officers! What a hypocrite! Where are these thugs parents? It’s their responsibility and should be charged with child neglect!

    Still remember her taking campaign money for her personal expenses not related to the campaign. No accountability..Omar and AOC did the same.

    These people are disgraceful! I hope something happens soon. We’ve had nothing but disruption and disgrace in our country since this administration began running for office last year. I can’t believe there are still people who support this crap. Just go on Twitter and that’s all you see. Very disturbing.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’

Police

The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’

Published

on

On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
