“A Police-Free Future” – Minneapolis City Council Votes To Abolish Police Department

“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department”

Update (2100ET): Here is the somewhat unbelievable statement from the Minneapolis City Council describing their “veto-proof majority” plans to create a utopian “police-free future”..

1. Decades of police reform efforts have proved that the Minneapolis Police Department cannot be reformed, and will never be accountable for its actions.

2. We are here today to begin the process of ending the Minneapolis Police Department and creating new transformative model for cultivating safety in Minneapolis.

3. 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.

4. We’ll be taking intermediate steps towards ending the MPD through the budget process and other policy and budget decisions over the coming weeks and months.

We cannot help but wonder if this is anything like what the constituents actually wanted as an outcome of the current racial-bias protestations.

As former AR Governor Mike Huckabee noted:

I wish I had the U-Haul franchise in Minneapolis b/c all the same people will be bugging out to a place not run by loons and I could make a fortune renting one way trucks!”

And Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw summed things up perfectly:

This is dangerous, counterproductive, and deeply irrational. “Defund the police” is not a call from the fringes of the far left anymore. It has gone from a radical slogan to actual policy in a major American city, within days.”

*  *  *

In a stunning harbinger of things to come across the country, on Sunday afternoon, amid calls for defunding police departments countrywide, the Minneapolis City Council members went one further, and announced their intent to disband the city’s embattled police department, which has endured relentless criticism in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd.

Madness. I doubt they will enact this, but regardless, the mere suggests is indicative of the lever of woke madness that affects these savages.

If the police is abolished in Minneapolis, rich people and those with businesses will leave the city to settle down in cities that are secure, with law and order. Only bums and junkies will remain. Welcome to Minneapolis, “slum capital” of the USA.

Please sing kumbaya with us. It’s a magical chant that will turn all dobadders into cuddly little fluff bears on contact.
 
We’ve been at it for half a century and more. The 100th time is a charm. I’m sure of it.

Defunding the police happened in Amsterdam when the state decriminalized, legalized, and monopolized the drug trade. Crime dropped 85% across the board. Prisons were closed too. CIA drug trafficking was a big loser. Money was spent on medical, social, and psychological administration of the program. Big win-win-win for everyone except the gangs, organized criminals, and again, the CIA drug dealers.

Big difference between , from my experience, a nice laid back Amsterdam and the USA……

The Jewish Bolsheviks also disbanded the local Police force before they created the Cheka.

Just use county sheriffs that are VERY closely monitored for any and all rights violations/abuse of power. Sheriffs usually use much better judgement and have nomral policies.
