In an interview Tuesday with Breitbart News, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) predicted the national crime wave in cities across America will worsen if radical Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) wins Georgia’s battleground Senate race.
After rallying on behalf of Warnock’s challenger, Republican Herschel Walker, Cotton said, “Crime will continue to increase, and more people will be the victims of violent crime in Atlanta and Georgia and all across America. Raphael Warnock has a radical pro-crime agenda.”
Demonstrably true, as it is of all Democrat leaders. The Democrat Party is fundamentally pro-crime and anti-law enforcement.
Cotton said the Georgia Democrat “supports eliminating the bail system, allowing people arrested for heinous crimes back on the streets to commit more crimes or to intimidate or even assault the witnesses or their accusers. He said that he wants to eliminate qualified immunity for police officers, which would make it easier for criminals to sue the law enforcement officers who try to keep our communities safe.”
While Warnock recently spearheaded passage of a bipartisan bill to fund small police forces, he also supports sweeping police reforms, such as the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which would increase restrictions on officers and eliminate qualified immunity. Warnock is also staunchly opposed to cash bail and said in a 2015 sermon:
When you think about the fact that America still warehouses 25 percent of the world’s prisoners, we shouldn’t be surprised when we see police officers act like bullies on the street. … You don’t get to be the incarceration capital of the world by playing nice on the streets. You have to work for that distinction.
Cotton warned, “If Raphael Warnock goes back to the United States Senate he will be an ardent voice for the criminals across the country, not for law enforcement.”
