So you completely ignore the fact the the chief of police of Seattle has stated that since the occupation by socialists/communists/anarchists in Seattle that crimes like rape, robberies and other acts of violence have tripled?...

This is only making violence and lawlessness/crimes in general worse, but you are in favor of it because in your fantasies you think this can work...

This has nothing to do with Seattle's little cop-free zone...I don't know what the hell that is.

There will still be cops in Minneapolis you know? This is a restructuring. Wiping out what is and rebuilding. The cops aren't being wiped out.

For communities its size, Minneapolis has one of the highest crime rates in the nation.


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.


You mean when they did this?


In reality, the police abolition movement will result in the police being replaced with other agents of order. Camden, NJ did experiment with this idea by getting rid of their entire police force and switching to the county police force, who then hired most of those same officers at a lower rate. Many brand new officers were also hired by the county to patrol Camden without the training, experience, or knowledge of the community that the former police force had. In a city that is 95 percent minority, Camden went from a 2/3 minority department to an agency that is made up of only 43 percent minority officers. A larger, less diverse police presence is probably not what the police abolitionists of today have in mind.


So they fired the police department, rehired them all under County and then added a lot of new officers with no training so essentially made a larger less diverse police force?

BUHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Way to solve THAT problem!

Well what's done is done. No more police.
So for career officers that planned on being there for 20, 25.. 30 years. Will they get their pensions?

Will they now install cameras on every street corner, make citizens wear a camera at all times? How will they solve a He said She said issue?

Will the banks leave the area?

Will stores be safe from looting?

Will Nike send their products to enhance looting?

Is the District Attorney out of the Job since they work with the police?

If a citizens arrest is made, who takes the perp to jail?

Will there be a jail?

Will it be considered and act of kidnapping if people detain someone, perhaps someone they feel they don't like? And throw them in a vehicle and drive away?

Who gets the guns?

Will there be guns?

Will it be legal to marry your brother or sister in a foreign country, then move to United States become a senator?

It's apparent that you don't even know what abolition means.

They are not "restructuring anything" they are getting rid of their police department, and want some sort of "community safety" that doesn't brandishes guns, doesn't use pepper spray against angry/violent protestors, and NEVER kill a black person for any reason...

Dude, we could go to all the council member’s houses and rob them blind. I mean it’s not like they could call the cops or even use guns without proving that they are mindless hypocrites...

I bet they even got the good bologna for sandwiches.

Biden is doing that. This "nonsense" will flip the U.S. House back to the sensible Republican party.

Heh.

My wife and I were talking about this.

They'll have private security, live in gated communities, and will sleep very well at night.

They have their own private security, whom are armed and will kill criminals. So liberals/democrats/socialists like Pelosi, Schiff, Jenny Durkan, Biden, Hillary, etc will not suffer the consequences of "abolishing the police..."

The people whom will suffer the consequences of these decisions by democrat leaders are the law abiding poor, and the middle class law abiding Americans...

Literally can't be bothered linking it - check out the stats of houses that have gone onto the Minneapolis real estate sales market last 96hrs, the writing is on the wall - GTFO there, fend for yourselves because the government doesn't GAF.

"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!

They’re going to push the boundaries until something breaks big and when it does, S could easily HTF.

Will they use GS4 ( formally Wackenhut ) with the guys that couldn't get a job a police officer and shoot up an alternative lifestyle nightclub in Orlando Florida?

Will they get those cool looking bicycle helmets and an all terrain Segway?

Hey Minneapolis, good luck and remember. Be Careful What You Ask For.

I can tell you one thing this will lead to is a camera in every nook and cranny within and around the city. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing though, could go either way. (shrugs)

Yeah, mob rule wins.

Now the protesters, rioters and looters can all go home in the knowledge there will be no police brutality on the criminals ever again.
Suppose the new community services people will all feel safe and sound knowing criminals will know where they live and come and tell them when they are being naughty.

Tourist will flock to the mall of America for the free and permanently open stores. Well if anyone gets a delivery that is.
