Minneapolis sees shocking 537% spike in carjackings as City Council pushes for ‘irresponsible’ cuts to police budget

Minneapolis has suffered a surge in crime that has coincided with a severe shortage of police officers. Undeterred, City Council members want to make further cuts to law enforcement.

Police have registered a 537-percent increase in violent carjackings in the city compared with last November, the local Star Tribune reported. More than 125 such crimes have been recorded over the past two months, with three separate carjackings reported within a one-hour period on Saturday morning. One of the victims, an elderly woman, was struck on the head by her assailants.

More than 500 people have been shot in Minneapolis so far this year, the highest number of gunshot victims in more than a decade. The Minnesota metropolis has also seen 79 homicides since January, a figure approaching the record annual murder count of 97 in 1995, which earned the city the title of “Murderapolis” in the New York Times.

The spree of carjackings isn’t the only public safety crisis facing the city: An analysis by the Star Tribune in September found that violent crimes – including homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assaults – were up 17 percent from the previous five-year average for this period.


The city has seen a mass exodus of officers since the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police in May, which triggered violent, nationwide protests and campaigns to ‘defund’ law enforcement. Minneapolis has lost 120 officers since the start of the year, with more personnel expected to depart in the coming weeks. In mid-November, the City Council allocated nearly $500,000 to bring in cops from other departments to help until the end of the year.

Despite the crime surge and personnel shortage, a trio of City Council members, including Council President Lisa Bender, have submitted a proposal that would cut the Minneapolis police budget by nearly $8 million.


Send in the social workers and shoot them to the legs to fix it up.

Incompetent police is more like it.
They surely became more incompetent over one year. Maybe we should defund them... no... abolish them, then their incompetence won't get in the way.

“The numbers are staggering,” a Minneapolis police spokesperson told the paper. “It defies all civility and any shred of common human decency.”

If it were a public school with a 500% increase in failing students, what do you think Republicans would do about it?

They'd rail and scream about "defunding the education system" and then they'd go about making it happen.

Looks like the slogan has failed to stop funding for law enforcement.

So, how goes the effort to stop the police from choking suspects to death?

In republican area this does not happen because they are lower in diversity, home school, and have more private schools.

As doesn't the crime problem, because republicans fund their police force.

Leftists on the other hand, are deranged as always. Criminals come first in their society...

That has already happen with Progs in control. Freedom of choice can be a terrible thing when the odds are stacked against you with insane social agendas and programs.

Yup, more and more people keep failing. Their response is to give everyone a trophy and pretend it ain't so. More leftist anti-Trump indoctrination also.

That’s a lot of not answering the question.

That was not a question, but I answered what is going on in republican neighborhoods regarding schooling anyway.

Leftists view schools as indoctrination centers. Normal people view them as places to get educated. That's one reason... but only one... why public schools have been failing so badly. That's where brilliant ideas such as "defund the police" come from.

With distance learning that is actually happening, the republicans are saying to get the kids back in schools. You commies are the ones keeping them closed.

Minnesota requires a license to open carry a hand gun ... no 2nd Amendment rights there ... a criminal's paradise ...

Car-jackers get shot to death in Oregon ... on the spot ... hot lead at 1100 ft/sec ... we allow open carry ...

Floyd died from a self administered lethal dose of fentanyl. He was complaining about not being able to breath while he was standing, before they put him in the police car. But hey, feel free to keep spewing the commie lies.

All you have to do is look at the toxicology report, he had 11 ng/ml in his system, 9.96 ng/ml is considered lethal. Of course you commies can't be bothered with those pesky little facts, especially when they don't fit with your propaganda.

It is long past time that police stop risking their lives protecting criminals.

Most every big city across America is currently suffering similar explosions of violent crime. You ask me it is all part of THE PLAN. Take Baltimore for instance, which I have the displeasure of living close to, and which has gone totally off the charts in murders, shootings, rapes, robberies and assaults. This insane gladiator arena big cities plan is what the democrats have dreamed of for decades. They want minorities to quake it up and slaughter each other so they can make voter and donor hearts bleed and from that blood consolidate their power. Sick fuckers all of them.
