Radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), a prominent supporter of the “defund the police” movement, is introducing legislation that would require federal law enforcement officers to identify their agency, last name, and identification number while on duty.
“The United States of America should not have secret police,” AOC wrote on Twitter, referring to unmarked federal agents sent to quell the ongoing, violent rioting in Democrat-run Portland. “Federal law enforcement officers should have their identifying information displayed while on duty. This is basic.” So she will be introducing the legislation this week called the “Law Enforcement Identification Transparency Act of 2020,” which will require that information be visible.
“I’m going to do something — that, I can tell you,” President Trump promised Monday. “Because we’re not going to let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit and Baltimore and all of these — Oakland is a mess.”
“We’re not going to let this happen in our country. All run by liberal Democrats,” he continued, promising more federal law enforcement. “These are anarchists. These are not protestors. People say ‘protestors’; these people are anarchists. These are people that hate our country. And we’re not going to let it go forward.”
