Ilhan Omar Believes Man Who Threatened to Kill Her Deserves 'Compassion'.

On Nov.

19, Representative Ilhan Omar released a letter she wrote in regards to the sentencing of Patrick Carlineo, a man recently convicted of threatening her life.

In her letter, Omar asked the judge presiding over Carlineo’s case to apply a “system of compassion.”.

We must ask: who are we as a nation if we respond to threats of political retribution with retribution ourselves?, Ilhan Omar, via Twitter.

In Omar’s opinion, Carlineo shouldn’t receive a “punitive punishment,” but rather be given the opportunity to “make amends and seek redemption.” .

Punishing the defendant with a lengthy prison sentence or a burdensome financial fine would not rehabilitate him … It would only increase his anger and resentment.

, Ilhan Omar, via Twitter.

Omar then addressed political violence and hate speech as a whole, saying they are not “unique” to Carlineo.

.

They are an increasing feature in our public sphere.

We will not defeat it with anger and exclusion.

We will defeat it with compassion … We must teach the defendant to love.

, Ilhan Omar, via Twitter
