On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Kelly File,” community activist Jessica Disu declared, “We need to abolish the police. Period.”
Disu, after stating that Black Lives Matter hasn’t called for violence against anyone, adults haven’t listened to young people, and that she has focused on inter-community violence in Chicago stated, “We need to abolish the police. Period.” She further called for the police to be demilitarized and disarmed.
She continued, “And we need to come up with community solutions for transformative justice.”
Disu further said that the loss of any life is tragic. After that, anchor Megyn Kelly asked who would protect people without police. Disu responded, “We need to come up with community solutions. The police force in this country began as slave patrol.”
Later in the segment, she suggested divesting from the police and putting the money into “youth programs.”
