Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in hot water after this colossal blunder

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is calling the shots for Democrats.

A mistake from her past is coming back to bite her.

Now she’s in hot water after this colossal blunder.

In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Democrats went to work politicizing this tragedy.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was no exception joining in on this effort.

She also couldn’t help herself to use this tragedy to take a shot at one of her favorite targets – the police.

On social media she whined about the size of the Uvalde police budget and pointed users to an article claiming that police in schools do nothing to stop shootings.

This is of course contrary to the evidence produced by actual experts in school safety.

Ocasio-Cortez may claim to care about public safety but she helped unleash a crime tsunami on the country endangering Americans.

As the head cheerleader for the defund the police movement that swept over Democrats, crime has spiked around the country.

This disastrous movement to break down law and order didn’t leave schools untouched.

Former New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton unloaded on the dangerous insanity of the defund police in a Fox News appearance.

“I speak out frequently about . . . the stupidity of the defund the police movement that they quickly retreated from,” Bratton said.

“We have almost 100,000 fewer police officers today than we had several years ago,” he explained.

“Many departments did suffer defunding, Los Angeles, New York, and we see the consequences of that defunding before they reversed it in the serious crime rates that those cities are experiencing,” he continued.

He turned his attention to armed police officers in schools.

“I don’t think most school teachers want to be armed. That’s not what they signed up to do. They signed up to teach,” he remarked.

“So, the decision about what level of security we need in our schools is left up to each municipality,” he stated.

“Here in New York City, during the height of the defund insanity in this city, there was an effort being made to basically take . . . police out of the school,” he commented.

“The irony of it was that the majority of those school police are minorities themselves, many of whom have children in that school system,” Bratton concluded.

Ocasio-Cortez’s deranged movement succeeded in taking officers out of schools.

The defund the police movement made schools more vulnerable as cities suffer from a shortage of police officers.

Cities around the country have had to move police officers out of schools to fill in on the streets after defund the police created staffing shortages.

This insanity has left schools more vulnerable without police protection.

Cities are in the no-win situation of figuring out where to place their dwindling police force.

Even worse, she sponsored a bill to pull federal funding for police officers in schools in favor of social workers.

America is paying the tragic price for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s defund the police lunacy.
