You have to laugh at these idiot democrats, they were TOLD you defund the police you get less police, now they are begging for more police


Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago moved to eliminate the police department, sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents.


Council members pressed police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.


“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents’ calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered. “That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.

Fake news. No decision has been made on defunding the police. This is the second fake news thread in the cesspool of misinformation that is the conservative USMB.

Delete your comment. The police was neither "removed" not defunded. You're a fake news troll.

If they got rid of the police force how do they go about addressing the police chief?

If there is no police force there is no police chief.

You have to laugh at those idiot Republicans. Stating that crimes are going up because of the police department being dismantled while that hasn't occurred yet even. I think cause and effect is being a bit muddled here.

Might be a good idea for the council to rethink their defunding idea. LOL

The fact that defunding the police in Minneapolis has been proposed and that police continue to be demonized there should be no shock about crime rates going up there and other cities. My advice to people of all shades and colors who share the common bond of hard work and honest living is to stay out of the cities. The people that live there and the people that run them obviously don’t give a shit.

Don't tell me what to do, Karen. They moved to reduce the police. The people reacted to their action.

Delete yourself. You offer nothing cogent.
