Suddenly Minneapolis City Council Wants to Know: Where Are Police?

Minneapolis city council members are getting an earful from their constituents.

They are getting calls from citizens reporting increased crime and lagging police response times, if they respond at all. Apparently the city is struggling with more crime as violent crime is up this year over last, and more people have been killed so far in 2020 than in all of 2019. Property crimes are also up and arson has increased 55%.

Now the city council members are demanding that Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo tell them how the department is responding to the violence.  

Hmm.  Isn’t this the same city council that voted to abolish the police department? And when that didn’t work, they voted to defund parts of it?

Turns out that Arradondo is working short-handed. More than 100 officers have retired or otherwise separated from the force so far this year, more than double the usual number.

Newly-elected council member Jamal Osman said residents are asking: “Where are the police?”

One council member said his constituents feel terrorized.

Gee, if this happens today before they dramatically reduce funding for the police, just imagine what life will be like in Minneapolis tomorrow.

    That is a great idea!! Why didn’t we think of that sooner? Defund and disband (same thing) the police. Then we can pay for private security (armed of course) for the extremely wise and blessed elected officials. The rest of us can live “Mad Max” in real time. What a great idea for an adventure!! So who cares if you get raped, murdered and enslaved!!! To serve the “Elected Elite” is you role, your lot in life. You wanted this, you got it.

    The rise in crime happens at the same time as the rise of BLM, says it all really.
