Minneapolis City Council Unanimously Approves Motion To Abolish Police Force
The Minneapolis City Council approved a motion to abolish the city’s police force in a 12-0 vote, the New York Post reported. The move would mean replacing the police with a “Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention.”
The move comes after the tragic death of George Floyd. Floyd died in police custody after an officer knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes as Floyd repeated “I can’t breathe.”

They've done it now.
They've finally decided to test the system and go full blown Cloward-Piven.

Businesses will leave. Anyone with common sense will leave. Property values will drop. Taxes will rise to make up for the loss of revenue. Criminals will now have free reign to murder, rape, deal drugs, commit robbery, etc... I can't wait to see how this blows up in the face of the democratic fools who voted for this. Good luck and godspeed.
