Democrat Turns on Radical Dems: ‘They Care More about Criminals than Civilians'
'It's beyond belief what's going on'
Radical Demcorats are facing backlash from their own party as they push far-left criminal justice reform.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her socialist "squad" were labeled "tone deaf" for making a bail reform push while expressing no outrage after a suspect out on bail allegedly killed five adults and a child at a Christmas parade in Wisconsin.
Former New York assemblyman Dov Hikind blasted progressive Democrats following the Waukesha Christmas parade tragedy.
"It's beyond belief what's going on, these elected officials should be arrested for negligence," Hikind said.
"They are responsible for caring more about the criminals than they care about the civilians."
"People being arrested again and again, back into the streets, what does that do to enforcement?"
"What does that do to the rest of us?"
"They are pathetic, they are shameful, and it is disgusting what is going on."
"People committing crimes, again and again, 50 pages of records of crimes committed before the individual in Wisconsin is finally caught," he said.
"Those people who this individual murdered, you know who is responsible? The D.A should be arrested."
Tragedy struck the small town outside Milwaukee on Sunday when an SUV allegedly driven by Mr. Brooks barrelled down the parade route, killing six people and wounding at least 47 others.
In 2019, AOC was forced to issue an apology to Dov Hikind for blocking him on Twitter.
According to the NY Post, New York lawmaker Ocasio-Cortez reportedly agreed to settle the case to spare herself from having to testify in federal court to explain why she blocked Hikind on Twitter.
"I have reconsidered my decision to block Dov Hikind from my Twitter account,” AOC says in a written apology obtained by The Post a the time.
