Minneapolis city council defunds police

Liberal City Council in Full on Panic Mode, Violence Uncontrollable…What Did They Expect?

The Minneapolis City Council is in panic mode as violent crime surges throughout the city, immediately after they called to defund the police department.

MPR News reported that during a City Council meeting on police reform, Minneapolis City Council members “told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults and shootings. The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than were slain in all of last year. Property crimes, like burglaries and auto thefts, are also up. Incidents of arson have increased 55 percent over the total at this point in 2019.”

City Council Member Jamal Osman said that he has been flooded with complaints from residents that they have called the police for help, but are not being answered. Reportedly, even constituents who live in ‘safer areas’ are feeling “terrorized”. “Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?'” Osman said.

“That is the only public safety option they have at the moment: MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen,” Osman continued.

The President of the City Council, Lisa Bender, who was the person leading the charge to defund the police, complained that she felt officers were being defiant. “This is not new. But it is very concerning in the current context,” Bender claimed.

The crime wave comes after approximately 100 officers have either left the department, or taken a leave of absence since the start of the year. This is more than double the normal rate.

Phillipe Cunningham, also a member of the Minneapolis City Council, called out the other council members for their hypocrisy. “What I am sort of flabbergasted by right now is colleagues, who a very short time ago were calling for abolition, are now suggesting we should be putting more resources and funding into MPD,” Cunningham said.

Defunding the Police

Days after the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to pass a resolution to replace the police department with a “community-led public safety system.”

“Our commitment is to end our city’s toxic relationship with the Minneapolis Police Department. It is clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe. Our efforts at incremental reform have failed, period,” Bender said.

Immediately after the vote, Bender gave a series of interviews where she gave controversial answers to the simplest questions about the proposal.

“Do you understand that the word, dismantle, or police-free also makes some people nervous, for instance? What if in the middle of night, my home is broken into? Who do I call?” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Bender.

“Yes, I mean, hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege. Because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done,” Bender responded.

Bender couldn’t even answer a simple question. In another CNN interview, she was asked what would happen if a killer was running loose and a police officer was needed. What was Bender’s answer? “We don’t have all the answers,” she admitted.

Representative Ilhan Omar, who represents Minneapolis, also referred to the police department as a “cancer.”

  1. This is nothing new it was in some ways going on long before Trump took office, but under Trump it has just gotten worse because of Trump promoting violence and saying White Supremists are good people when the Intelligence community is saying they are the greatest threat to National Security in this USA.

    1. Sorry Robert but you have been listening to say too much CNN. There is another side to the comments you have made and you are not listening to it.

    2. 1) Trump doesn’t promote violence, he cals for law and order.
      2) Trump didn’t call White Supremists good people.
      3) The greatest threat to National Security in this US is the totalitarian leftist Democrat Party and their rioting, burning, looting supporters.

  2. You should call the Corner to pick up this dead body that broke into my house.

  3. Where is the “community led public safety system” members? I thought they were to handle all calls. Tell the police they are not needed, defund them and watch the attrition rate of policemen. Fewer policemen, fewer police responses. Common Sense at work, which the city council members do not seem to have. Good luck citizens.

  4. The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted to pass a resolution to replace the police department with a “community-led public safety system.” That means: THUGS AND MOBS will be running the show. Cross them, and you may just be forfeiting your life.

  5. City Council President Bender says calling the police and expecting assistance is an example of white privilege and Ilhan Omar says the the police is a cancer. The state of Minnesota and the city of Minneapolis, indeed, suffers from a cancer and that cancer is a malignant case of too many Democrat politicians. This is a cancer which has already destroyed the health of both the city and the state. Fortunately, there is a cure for this cancer-simply pull the lever that gives your vote to any Republican. Democrats can’t have it both ways-either they provide the protection the citizens have been paying for and forget the bovine excrement about white privilege or they get the hell out of the way so the citizens can provide their own protection. It is totally stupid to expect the citizens to just roll over and give in to the criminals.

  6. What a bunch of “Jackasses” this council and the Mayor are. Well, you defunded policeand now you can watch how fast (murder, arson, robbery, mayhem, rape, and so forth go up in your town). Stop being so naive and do the right thing. Support your police, and stop restricting them in what they have to do to bring law and order back to your community. Your female Mayor believed you can appease BLM,or Antifa, well no you can’t. And now the citizens of your community will have to face the turmoil that will continue until your Mayor and council cooperate with the Federal Government for their assistance in bring back law and order!!!

  7. The People of Minneapolis need to go to city hall and round up every Democrap there drag them to the center of the city. Once they are there they need to call a News crew to film them stripping these Democraps once stripped they should be well covered with hot tar then feathers. After running them out of town they need to do the following 1) Strip them of all items of value and any money in the bank. Sell the items and add that money to what they had in the bank use it to for the damage they allowed to happen. Ban them for life from all levels of Government elected or appointed offices. Also ban them for life from any and all aspects of the law. This would include being a janitor in a law office. If the money taken for damages does not pay them off then take half their pay from whatever job they get. Also ban them from Government assistance programs as well.
