AOC: Tear Down All Prisons, Set All Prisoners Free

Everyone's favorite congresswoman/bartender is back with more stupidity!

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted Monday that the prison system should be abolished because of its ties to Jim Crow and slavery.

AOC wrote, "Mass incarceration is our American reality. It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country."

She later wrote, "We have more than enough room to close many of our prisons and explore just alternatives to incarceration ... many people in jailed or in prison don’t belong there at all."

So not only should people stop being put in prison for breaking the law, AOC wants everybody (including convicted criminals) released back into society.

In short, AOC has moved from #AbolishICE to abolishing prisons. Does she want to live in a world where no one is held accountable for their actions and there is no order? Sure seems like it.
