Democrat Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon of Pennsylvania was carjacked at gunpoint in Philadelphia this week.
The irony of this is that Scanlon supported defunding the police and wanted to send mental health workers to crime scenes.
Now the suspect in her carjacking has been caught and is facing federal charges. You have to wonder. Did mental health workers make the arrest? And is the suspect going to jail? Haven’t we been told by Democrats that the criminal justice system is unfair and racist?
FOX News reports:
Federal charges filed against suspect in carjacking of Democratic congresswoman
The Department of Justice announced federal charges Thursday against a man accused of carjacking Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.) on Wednesday.
United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams announced that 19-year-old Josiah Brown of Wilmington, Delaware has been charged with carjacking and carrying and using a firearm during a crime of violence in connection with the carjacking of Scanlon at Philadelphia’s Franklin D. Roosevelt Park yesterday afternoon.
Brown is in custody after he and four other people were detained driving Scanlon’s vehicle in a New Castle, Delaware parking lot late Wednesday. Brown was in custody of the keys to the vehicle when he was detained.
On Wednesday afternoon, according to authorities, Scanlon was standing with an associate outside her car when a Black male suspect got out of a nearby SUV and pointed a gun at her while demanding her keys. At the same time, another Black male suspect got out of the SUV. Scanlon complied and theme both suspects got into her car and drove away while a third suspect fled in the SUV.
Why were police even involved in this matter?
Cop hater Congresswoman called the cops when it was her life at risk.https://t.co/bIuHku8VBd

Are we supposed to feel sorry for progressive, defund-the-police Democrats who must then endure the consequences of their own policies? It’s hard for me to work up the required emotion to do so. In fact, I have to resist the temptation to be gleeful here https://t.co/5GWB5ApArp

Shouldn’t Democrat lawmakers have to live with the consequences of their own policies?
