(CNSNews.com) -Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) sent out a Tweet on Thursday evening saying that the United States needs to deal with systematic racism by confronting “police brutality.”

Her Tweet linked to a New York Times podcast about the case of Eric Garner, who died after being arrested by New York City police in 2014.

The Times podcast reported that the Justice Department had announced it would not bring federal civil rights charges against one of the police officers who carried out the arrest.

“This is not justice,” Omar said in her Tweet. “In order to address the systematic and institutionalized racism in our country we must confront police brutality and hold those who perpetrate it accountable.”
