She’s a liar and a manipulator.
La’ron Singletary, the Former Rochester, New York police chief responded to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for her “characterizations and accusations” at a time when law enforcement is investigating the Uvalde school shooting. During a segment on “Fox & Friends First” on Friday, Singletary said politicians should focus on finding “viable solutions” instead of trying to cause division. This was after Ocasio-Cortez spoke about America’s “patriarchal society” and masculinity “rooted in the subjugation of other people” a day after the deadly attack.
Singletary said, “I watched that video over and over again, and I don’t even think AOC knew what she was trying to say. I’ve worked 20 years in law enforcement and the investigation is not complete. And here she is making characterizations and accusations and tying them to a class in our society. It’s the rhetoric from politicians like AOC that continue to divide this country. In fact, what she’s saying is quite sexist and discriminatory. And politicians have a platform, and they have to use that platform, and they have to be careful how they use it. Last I checked, the motive of this shooting is still under investigation, meaning that we don’t know why this murderer decided to go into a school and wreak havoc and kill kids. Let’s call it what it is and deal with whatever it is when the investigation is complete. Instead of sitting down and having conversations to try to come up with viable solutions, what does she do? She takes to social media, improvises rhetoric that neither brings people together nor provides viable solutions.”
