Minneapolis City Council Looks To Dismantle Police Department

See, when they told us that they wanted to defund the police, they really didn’t mean they wanted to actually to defund the police, just to reduce their budgets by large amounts, right? No more precincts in black communities, right?

Minneapolis City Council announces veto-proof push to disband police in George Floyd aftermath

Minneapolis’ left-leaning City Council members on Sunday announced a veto-proof push to disband the Minneapolis police department, ramping up a major conflict inside the city following the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

Many activists have been pushing at least for their cities to defund local police departments, a move many other analysts considered unrealistic. The measure has been the main focus for many people protesting against police brutality.

Supporters of the move told Fox News, “We recognize that we don’t have all the answers about what a police-free future looks like, but our community does. We’re committing to engaging with every willing community member in the city of Minneapolis over the next year to identify what safety looks like for you.”

The city council members spoke at a protest at Powderhorn Park, a neighborhood in Minneapolis. The number of supporters in attendance represented a veto-proof majority to push the measure through, Fox 9 reported.

See, not defund, dismantle. They have absolutely no plan as to what happens without a police department, what replaces it, who deals with crime, anything, but, they’re charging full ahead. It’d be funny as hell if every officer up and quit, went to work elsewhere. Let’s see how much city council members like calling 911 and having a social worker come by to give them a hug and a lecture on their privilege.

Meanwhile, the major of Minneapolis, and utter simp, is against the plan

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Sunday reiterated that he doesn’t support abolishing the city’s police force, hours after a veto-proof majority of members of the Minneapolis City Council said they want to take that drastic step in the wake of the in-custody death of George Floyd.

Frey, who ordered a police station to evacuate as rioters burned it to the ground last month, was shouted down by a large gathering of demonstrators near his home on Saturday when he defied their demands to shutter the city’s police forces entirely.

“I’ll work relentlessly with Chief [Medaria] Arradondo and alongside community toward deep, structural reform and addressing systemic racism in police culture,” Frey said in a statement to KARE. “We’re ready to dig in and enact more community-led, public safety strategies on behalf of our city. But, I do not support abolishing the Minneapolis Police Department.”

Frey is about to learn all about the SJW virtue signaling cancel culture mob made up of Democratic Party voters who will come after him. If everything holds to form, they will be calling for his head, wanting to have a recall vote if he won’t resign, wanting their pound of flesh. Good luck mayor! You’re about to get an abject lesson in leftist politics.

    Will the dismantling include the County Sheriff’s office as well? What about the state police?

    These folks will feel real good about themselves up to the point where businesses will close and move outside the city or out of state. When the local morons start to be robbed, rapped and murdered they will get a real uh oh moment. I guess since they will say goodbye to the PD they can expect any federal funding to get cut off as well.

    Where’s Kurt Russel, a new Escape from…. sequel will be needed.

    • Conservative Beaner says:

      Oh I forgot. Will they march across the river and demand the St Paul police disband as well.

    • Conservative Beaner says:

      Say goodbye to the Vikings as they will seek a safer city to play ib.

    They’re just going to re-brand the police into something more palatable to inner city minorities. Something like “Justice Engineers” or some other ridiculous name.

    I would think that once you get into the weeds, there is zero chance Minneapolis will give up federal law enforcement funds & grants. They’re just going to change the name and give DC a wink when they cut those “law enforcement” grant checks for the city’s “Justice Engineers”.

    Though common sense, truth, facts and research mean nothing to Elwood unless it CONFIRMS his own bias, there are such things available if one is curious and caring enough to look.

    In 2019 police officers fatally shot 1,004 people, most of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. African-Americans were about a quarter of those killed by cops last year (235), a ratio that has remained stable since 2015. That share of black victims is less than what the black crime rate would predict, since police shootings are a function of how often officers encounter armed and violent suspects. In 2018, the latest year for which such data have been published, African-Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population.

    The police fatally shot nine unarmed blacks and 19 unarmed whites in 2019, according to a Washington Post database, down from 38 and 32, respectively, in 2015. The Post defines “unarmed” broadly to include such cases as a suspect in Newark, N.J., who had a loaded handgun in his car during a police chase. In 2018 there were 7,407 black homicide victims. Assuming a comparable number of victims last year, those nine unarmed black victims of police shootings represent 0.1% of all African-Americans killed in 2019. By contrast, a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.

    The latest in a series of studies undercutting the claim of systemic police bias was published in August 2019 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The researchers found that the more frequently officers encounter violent suspects from any given racial group, the greater the chance that a member of that group will be fatally shot by a police officer. There is “no significant evidence of antiblack disparity in the likelihood of being fatally shot by police,” they concluded.

    The only “systemic racism” in the US is on the part of leftist academics, celebrities, sports figures, “journalists”, politicians and elitist rich white self-hating guilt ridden East and West coat whores, Karen’s and Soyboys.

    Trump 2020 MAGA throw out the leftists.

    Great… let them go first and see how it all works out… of course the Sharia police force will be fine and dandy and I am sure will fill in the gaps.

  5. Klemdadiddlehopper says:

    Though, a recent poll conducted by YouGov found “despite calls by activists and protesters to defund police departments, most Americans do not support reducing law enforcement budgets.” Just 16 percent of Democrats and 15 percent of Republicans said they were in favor of the idea.

    • Klemdadiddlehopper says:

      I am one of those 15 percent of republicans in favor. Let us try and grand experiment in which Blue cities will be torn asunder in unprecedented violence as what is left of a anemic police force refuses to go there and do their jobs.

      They can fire every white officer and hire a bunch of blacks to fill the role. Those same black officers will refuse to go there as well.

      Life after all has one overriding agenda. Self preservation and right now the insane LEFT is out of control and want to loot our cities into looking like bombed out Beirut in the 70’s.

      • Kye says:

        You called it Klem, as usual. Here’s a brief of Minneapolis after the Justice League (sarc) was finished:

        https://youtu.be/boh1FlOl3bY

        Why has the death of a drug-addled black felon at the hands of the cops set the world on fire? Why is the institutional Left so exhilarated by the rioting? Why have the corporate oligarchs rolled out an information campaign in support of the revolts? For sure, the oligarchs are all members in good standing of the new religion, but there is an uncanny valley vibe to it. The whole thing is like a well-choreographed performance.

        When normal people, not infected by the rage virus that seems to be the root of the new religion, look at scenes like this they are disgusted. Why is the mayor of that city exhilarated by it? What possible reason could he have for promoting it? Why are white people literally worshiping black people? That’s probably the most bizarre aspect of this entire circus. It’s like these white people have secretly joined a weird UFO cult and they think blacks are the visiting space aliens.

        Any person bowing down or washing the feet of these racist thugs should be terminated from public jobs including police.

        Trump 2020 Or do you want to wash the feet of your oppressors?

  6. Major Major says:

    These are people who live in high-security condos and gated communities. They are protected and they don’t care about the sort of people who would have to face home invaders.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The Catch-22 for conservatives is that they already claim that the police DON’T protect citizens, prompting the need for every citizen to be armed.

      Police rarely stop home invasions, do they?
