VIDEO: Chicago BLM Activist Calls for Abolishing Police

A Black Lives Matter activist from Chicago argued during a heated “Kelly File” discussion earlier this week that American police forces should be abolished.

"Here are the solutions. We need to abolish the police, period. Demilitarize the police, disarm the police, and we need to come up with community solutions for transformative justice," said Jessica Disu, drawing some shocked reactions. 

The conversation started with Megyn Kelly asking the panel - which included Black Rights Matter supporters, law enforcement officers, conservative commentators and religious leaders - about some who praised the Dallas gunman.

Megyn Kelly asked her how citizens would be protected if police forces were "abolished." 

"We need to come up with community solutions. The police force in this country began as slave patrol," Disu argued.
