    "A Democratic congressional candidate downplayed looting and arson during a digital campaign event on Tuesday.


    Responding to a questioner who said she was concerned about the left-wing push to abolish the police, Democratic Texas candidate Kim Olson argued that police departments are overfunded, before pivoting to downplaying looting and arson. Calls for abolishing or defunding the police have come in the wake of protests over George Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes, video showed."

    "She added: “We have to rebuild from the ground up a color-blind public safety institution across America.”"

    She will probably win the runoff in a landslide.

    I'm thinking that some of these people with anti cop attitudes will conveniently change their tune whenever they themselves actually need a cop. It seems hypocritical and shortsighted at best.

    When asked if she would burn down her house in sympathy with looters, she probably responded "no", it would increase her carbon footprint. I mean like what is just another building burned going to really affect the environment.

    Well those over funded police should just stay the hell away from her and her house should any looters show up.

    Voting was not enough in 1776! The communist have a very strong foot hold on this country. Oath Keepers may need to step in.

    Retired Air Force Colonel with 25 years in with claims of being a combat vet.

    Is there any way to prove she flew combat missions?
