Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) on Thursday, Dec. 12, commented on Tuesday’s rampage in Jersey City, blaming the attacks on “white supremacy.”
“This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills,” Tlaib’s tweet read.
While in fact, the confirmed photos of two shooters were released on the same day. And they are “followers of the black nationalist, anti-Semitic sect, the Black Hebrew Israelites,” as said in journalist Andy Ngo’s tweet.
Confirmed photos of the Jersey City shooters have been released. David Anderson & Francine Graham were followers of the black nationalist, anti-Semitic sect, the Black Hebrew Israelites. They killed one officer before launching an attack at the kosher market that killed 3 more. pic.twitter.com/gFCFS8riBm

It didn’t take long for outraged members of the law enforcement community to take notice. Rob O’Donnell, a frequent contributor for LET and retired officer, fired back at Tlaib for her blatantly false spread of information. Tlaib’s tweet was then quickly deleted, but unfortunately for her, there remains a screenshot.
The Law Enforcement Today suggested that Tlaib saw the picture of the victim and assumed he was one of the suspects, and blamed the congresswoman for “blindly spewing false information to hundreds of thousands of Americans.”
Not a surprise to us, though.
