She brought this upon herself.
The Detroit police chief is calling for Rep. Rashida Tlaib to resign after she called for “no more policing.”
The chief, James Craig, called her statement “reckless” and wants to see her gone for it.
She had previously tweeted:
It wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist.
Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government funded murder.
No more policing, incarceration, and militarization. It can’t be reformed.

Craig also said, “You know what, if I made comments on par with her, they’d be calling for my resignation. Let her go. Who is she speaking for Charlie? Let me just say this. You talk about abolishing police incarceration and you talk about safe cities, what do you think the residents in Detroit want? I know, I speak with them. They’re reckless Charlie. Now is she representing the people or is she representing a fringe group?”
