The Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted on Friday to abolish the Police Department and replace the law enforcement agency with "a community-led public safety system." For communities its size, Minneapolis has one of the highest crime rates in the nation.

The 13-member city council, comprised of 12 Democrats and one Green Party member, voted to begin a year-long process of engaging "with every willing community member in Minneapolis" to come up with a new public safety model, Reuters reported. The council also established a new workgroup to deliver recommendations by July 24 on how to transform the city's public safety system.

On Sunday, a veto-proof majority of Minneapolis City Council members announced their intention to defund and disband the city's police department following the death of George Floyd and subsequent riots.

It's Official: Minneapolis City Council Votes Unanimously to Abolish Police

The lawlessness of democrats/socialists/communists/anarchists continues to win the day. The Minneapolis City Council has reached an unanimously vote in not only defunding the Minneapolis police department, but in completely abolishing/disbanding the police department...

Now they want to come up with "a new public safety model", which will include not using pepper spray against angry/violent protestors, no guns being brandished by whomever the new "public safety model officers" will be, and no black person EVER being killed. Even if that person is a hard core criminal...

This is just insane. If you vote democrat, whether on local elections or on the national level, you are voting for this sort of lawlessness. Make no mistake, this is the future the democrats/socialists/communists/anarchists have in store for the U.S.

If this really happens, I would expect law abiding citizens to leave there by the thousands and rightly so.
Minneapolis will take over as the crime capital of the world, I hope it burns completely to the ground because of the Leftist stupidity.
Good luck assholes.

Well, there it is. If you live in the area I would recommend selling and getting the hell out of there.

One would think (rationally) it would be prudent to solve the problem of *criminal behavior* FIRST before you eliminate the forces that deter it.

Career criminals and wanna-be criminals (bank robbers, rapists, etc.) are already prepping for their move to Minneapolis.

I hope they do it today and by November the crime rates is up by 400% .

Make it so bad that they get egg on their face and beg the National Guard to come in and restore order .


It ain’t going to happen but one can dream .

Stupidity has no limits apparently.

I can't wait to sit back and watch this unfold. More Democrat hilariousness.

I wish the people of Minnesota luck. They are going to need it.

This is something too serious to not allow the citizens to vote on. 13 city council members shouldn't have this much power.

There go the property values in Minniapolis, the housing market will be flooded with houses for sale and prices of homes will drop like a rock. Well, it will be cheap to buy a house there, just make sure to have plenty of guns and Ammo to protect yourself. You can always get a job working for the street gangs.

As the article already stated "For communities its size, Minneapolis has one of the highest crime rates in the nation."

In Seattle the police chief has stated that rapes, robberies, and other acts of violence have tripled since the socialists/communists/anarchists took over that section of the town, and since the police can't get in there under orders from Jenny Durkin, it will only get worse.

I have said it, and these actions by democrat leaders proves it. The Democrat party is the party that is in favor of criminals, are against Law Enforcement, and are against law abiding citizens...

"Interesting" will be when Antifa/BLM attempt to seize and claim an "autonomous zone" inside the city of Nashville. Just saw an article describing what Nashville's mayor will do to these domestic terrorists, when they attempt to duplicate what they did in Seattle.

Boom!

What’s the old saying?

Stick with what you know best ?

Sounds like the Minneapolis city council lives by it.

Can they vote all of their city council members out? Recall them? After all, an election is coming up soon.

If not and this sticks, I imagine the LEO's would be high tailing it out of there ASAP and find gainful employment elsewhere or retire if possible. In fact, there should be mass exodus in the next two months of the police department in Minneapolis. They will be the poster child of what NOT to do, as well as all the large cities who caved to immature and stupid emotional outbursts.

Riiight, because 6% white officers whom kill "unarmed blacks" (which includes black criminals trying to wrestle the gun from the officer) out of 0.95% of all homicides against blacks by whites is reason enough to murder several police officers, murder several small business owners, including blacks trying to protect their businesses, and justifies the beatings being received by non-protestors/small business owners, as well as it justifies the looting and other acts of violence...

So, clearly, the current way of things is not working. Trying something new is a good idea, I think. Resources could be better placed. I'm not in Minneapolis proper but am near and I'm not going anywhere.

Anyway, it is already decided here on ATS, we are all doomed...lol... Look at what Camden, NJ did. Think a little and, then maybe let some change happen before you make up your mind.
