Rep. Ilhan Omar has made it clear that she believes dismantling the nation’s criminal justice system doesn’t go far enough. These comments were spotted and shared by the Daily Caller:

Rep. Omar got plenty of blowback for those remarks, but luckily being a Democrat means having a separate branch of the DNC called the “mainstream media” to help with spin. In this case, that person in Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake:
