Ayanna Pressley Claims “Police violence is a public health crisis”

Tuesday, “squad” member Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) made the claim that “Police violence is a public health crisis.”

Moments later Pressley retweeted a post from SocialSecurityWorks declaring “Racism is a public health crisis.”

Pressley’s claim elicited varied responses including:

“Being on the wrong side of the law, resulting in a risk of police interaction, is a public health crisis. An 8-yr old shot at killed while just sitting in a car in Chicago, is a public health crisis. Sit down panderer.”

“It’s been the “silent” GENOCIDE but now the spotlight is FINALLY in their face. They can’t run, hide, lie, not when we have A REVOLUTION TELEVISED!!!!”

“Democrat systemic racism is a public health crisis in the black community.”

“Stupidity is a public health crisis.”
