Lewis Blasts Tina Smith’s Silence on Abolishing the Police

Lewis Blasts Tina Smith’s Silence on Abolishing the Police

EAGAN. MINNESOTA ~~~  June 8, 2020 (LSN)  Lewis Blasts Tina Smith’s Silence on Abolishing the Police “The idea of abolishing the police after 500 businesses were just damaged or destroyed in in the Twin Cities is complete lunacy.”

U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement after the Minneapolis City Council announced plans to begin disbanding the Minneapolis Police Department, and Senator Tina Smith remains silent on the issue.

“As the husband and son in law of former St. Paul police officers, I was appalled and outraged yesterday when the Minneapolis City Council announced their intention to defund the Minneapolis Police Department. It is unconscionable that this is even a consideration. Democrats’ inflammatory attempts at triggering their radical socialist base for political expediency is quickly becoming very dangerous. Right now across the country policemen and women are being shot, run over, and targeted. The idea of abolishing the police after 500 businesses were just damaged or destroyed in in the Twin Cities is complete lunacy.

Senator Tina Smith’s silence on this issue can only mean that she stands with Ilhan Omar and the City Council in wanting to abolish the police. She was nowhere to be found when rioters were burning the city unchecked, and she’s nowhere to be found now that left-wing anarchists want to de-fund the police force. I never fathomed we’d see sitting members of Congress content with abolishing the police, but here we are. Tina Smith has a duty to stand up against this radical proposal. The safety of our communities depends on it.”
