NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Former Rochester, New York, police chief La’ron Singletary has pushed back against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D.N.Y., for her “characterizations and accusations” as law enforcement pursues the investigation of the Uvalde school shooter. Speaking at “Fox & Friends First” on Friday, Singletary urged politicians to find “workable solutions” instead of spouting divisive rhetoric. Ocasio-Cortez denounced America’s “patriarchal society” and masculinity “rooted in the subjugation of others” the day after the attack.

TEXAS SCHOOL SHOOTING: LAW ENFORCEMENT NOW ‘EXAMINING’ POLICE RESPONSE TO UVALDE ATTACK

SINGLETARY OF LA’RON: I watched this video over and over again, and I don’t even think AOC knew what she was trying to say. I worked 20 years in law enforcement and the investigation is not over. And here she makes characterizations and accusations and links them to a class in our society. It is the rhetoric of politicians like AOC that continues to divide this country. In fact, what she says is quite sexist and discriminatory. And politicians have a platform, and they have to use that platform, and they have to be careful how they use it. Last time I checked, the reason for this shooting is still under investigation, which means we don’t know why this murderer decided to go into a school and wreak havoc and kill children. Let’s call him by his name and deal with him when the investigation is over. Instead of sitting down and having conversations trying to come up with workable solutions, what does she do? She uses social media, improvises rhetoric that doesn’t bring people together or provide viable solutions.
