Minneapolis Sans Police: City Council Unanimously Moves to Abolish Cops

WOW.

Published

on

We’ve heard quite a bit lately about the “defund the police” movement, with some of the more radical activists even calling for the abolishment of the institution altogether.

Of course, this felt like a pipe dream.  This felt like a wild and unreachable plateau of liberalism, yet, here we are.

The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously approved a pledge to seek the replacement of its police department with a so-called community-led public safety system amid a pressure campaign spearheaded by Black Lives Matter activists and far-left Democrats to defund law enforcement in the wake of protests and riots over George Floyd’s death.

“The murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, by Minneapolis police officers is a tragedy that shows that no amount of reforms will prevent lethal violence and abuse by some members of the Police Department against members of our community, especially Black people and people of color,” the five city council members wrote in the resolution.

This sentiment has been prevalent in the city for some time.

Last Thursday, Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender vowed that the council will “dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.” Minneapolis City Council member Jeremiah Ellison, son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D), echoed Bender’s sentiments.

“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due,” Ellison stated.

There is still some fight to come, however, as the Mayor of Minneapolis has already publicly stated his opposition to the plan.

Majority Oppose Defunding Police and Feel Black Lives Matter Movement is a War on Cops

A new poll finds that a majority of voters think that laws are needed to protect police, and that the Black Lives Matter movement’s war on police is dangerous

Enraged Seattle Residents Flocked Phones To Blast The City Council’s Plans To Cut Police Funding

A poll released this week finds that a majority of voters think that laws are needed to protect police, and that the Black Lives Matter movement’s war on police is dangerous to public safety.

The new poll released Thursday by the Rasmussen polling group finds that nearly 60 percent of respondents believe that there is currently a “war on police” across the country. 59 percent agreed with that statement, up from only 43 percent two years ago when the question was last asked.

The poll also found that 59 percent support “blue lives matter” laws that would protect the lives of police officers and would call for stricter penalties on those who harm members of law enforcement.

Support for blue lives matter laws even came in at 52 percent among the black respondents. White voters supported the idea at 63 percent, and 49 percent of other voters supported the laws.

In another finding, overall 68 percent said they fear that the cold-blooded shootings of police officers would lead to a shortage of applicants who want to become police officers. This question led to an astonishing 84 percent of black respondents saying that they fear losing police officer candidates. 66 percent of whites and 70 percent of other minorities also feared a shortage of police officers.

The BLM movement does not seem to have deterred too many from praising their local police. 67 percent said their local police do a good job while only 20 percent said that the police were too harsh.

Republicans and independents felt that there is a war on police while delusional Democrats were less sure of that claim. 80 percent of republicans and 60 percent of political independents agreed that there is a war on cops. Only 39 percent of Democrats agreed with that statement. This is bad news for Joe Biden’s chances of winning the White House in November.

Finally, defunding the police also found slim support.

66 percent of respondents said that they oppose the defund the police movement.

The poll surveyed 1,000 likely U.S. voters and was conducted between Sept. 15-16. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

BLM Thugs Block Hospital E.R. Treating Two Ambushed Deputies While Yelling: “We Hope They Die”

Africa Town Coalition protesters tried to storm the emergency room of a hospital where two LA County Sheriff’s deputies were “fighting for their lives” after they were ambushed in their patrol car and shot in the head by a lone gunman at a Metro station in Compton Saturday night.

The officers were in extremely critical condition following the unprovoked attack.

President Trump weighed in on the heinous attack calling the attacker an animal.

“To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling “We hope they die” referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through,” the sheriff’s department wrote on Twitter.

Ohio Sheriff Warns Antifa: ‘You Shoot at Us, We’ll Shoot Back’

A Butler County, Ohio, sheriff has a warning for Antifa: “You shoot at us, expect us to shoot back.”

A Butler County, Ohio, sheriff has a warning for Antifa: “You shoot at us, expect us to shoot back.”

Sheriff Richard K. Jones wasn’t having any of the lawlessness befalling the rest of the country. HIS county is going to remain safe.

On Wednesday, sheriff Jones talked on Facebook about the “lawlessness in the country over the last few months” directed at cops, including “water dumped on police in New York, bricks and frozen water bottles thrown at police as well as officers blinded by lasers in Portland, Oregon.” He even referenced the officers in Chicago that have been shot at.

“I won’t tolerate it, period,” Jones said. “You shoot at the police, expect us to shoot back. I will not allow my deputies or any law enforcement officer in Butler County to take the abuse I have seen over the past several months. If you come to this county expecting a free pass to harm one of my men or women in uniform, keep in mind [that] nothing in life is free.”

Commenters on the Facebook page loved the sheriff’s message.

“Every county in the United States needs more sheriffs like this,” one said.

“It’s about time someone is not afraid to do their job and hold lawbreakers accountable for their actions,” another replied.

This is not the first time that Jones has spoken his mind. In July he told state authorities that he is “not the mask police” and won’t be arresting people who aren’t wearing medical masks.

“I am not the mask police,” he exclaimed. “That is not my responsibility. That is not my job. People should be able to make that choice themselves.”

“If someone’s sick, I can understand the mask-wearing. But for all of us to have our temperature taken, to have to wear a mask, where’s it going to stop?” he said.

Chicago: 36+ Street Gangs Reportedly Vow To Shoot On Sight Any Cop Who Has A Weapon Drawn In Public

A federal intelligence alert obtained by the ABC7 I-Team has gone out to Chicago-area law enforcement with an ominous warning: nearly three dozen cold-blooded street gangs “have formed a pact to shoot-on-sight any cop that has a weapon drawn on any subject in public.”

The “situational information report” from FBI officials in Chicago dated August 26, 2020, states “members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in the performance of their official duties. The purpose of which is to catch on film an officer drawing his/her weapon on any subject and the subsequent ‘shoot-on-sight’ of said officer, in order to garner national media attention.”

The Blaze:

The FBI has reportedly told Chicago-area law enforcement to be on the lookout for dangerous gang members just looking for a reason to kill cops.

According to a Monday night report from WLS-TV, approximately 36 street gangs have vowed to “shoot on-sight any cop that has a weapon drawn on any subject in public.”

The report, obtained by WLS, is titled “Pact Made by People Nation Gang Factions to ‘Shoot On-Site’ [sic] Any Police Officer with a Weapon Drawn.”

The report allegedly originated from Chicago FBI officials on Aug. 26 and states that “members of these gang factions have been actively searching for, and filming, police officers in performance of their official duties.”

The purpose of such surveillance is purportedly to “catch on film an officer drawing his/her weapon on any subject and the subsequent ‘shoot on-site’ of said officer, in order to garner national media attention.”

Some gangs purported to be involved in the activity include the Black P Stones, El Rukns, Latin Kings, and Vice Lords. More

Supt. Brown said that the spike in attacks on police makes it clear to him that “people are seeking to do harm to cops. We need police officers and as community members, we need to push back fervently against lawlessness.”

Federal authorities have not offered any additional information concerning the intelligence bulletin, and Chicago police confirmed they are aware of the gang threat and are taking the necessary precautions to keep their officers safe.

Virginia Senate Passes A Bill That Could Downgrade An Assault On Law Enforcement To A Misdemeanor

Virginia Senate Passes A Bill That Could Downgrade An Assault On Law Enforcement To A Misdemeanor

The Virginia Senate this week approved a bill that would let the charge of assaulting a police officer be a misdemeanor instead of a felony, and eliminate the mandatory jail term for being convicted of such a crime.

“Eliminates the mandatory minimum term of confinement for an assault and battery committed against a judge; magistrate; law-enforcement officer; correctional officer; person directly involved in the care, treatment, or supervision of inmates; firefighter; or volunteer firefighter or any emergency medical services personnel and provides that such crime can no longer be committed as a simple assault and must result in a bodily injury,” the bill’s summary states.

The bill passed the State Senate in a 21-15 vote.

“What in the world are we doing here?” state Sen. John Cosgrove Jr., a Republican, asked, according to The Washington Post. “Have you watched television for the last couple of weeks? Have you seen what our police officers are going through? And here we are with a bill that’s going to actually make it easier for someone to actually assault a police officer.”

Seattle’s First Female Black Top Cop Quits After City Cuts Her Salary Fires 100 Officers

Seattle’s first Black police chief, has quit her job after the city tried to cut her salary by $100,000 and fired 100 police officers.

Carmen Best, Seattle’s first Black police chief, has quit her job after the city tried to cut her salary by $100,000 and fired 100 police officers even as the city remains under daily threat of riots by Black Lives Matter terrorists.

“I am confident the department will make it through these difficult times,” Best said in her resignation letter. “You truly are the best police department in the country, and please trust me when I say, the vast majority of people in Seattle support you and appreciate you. … I look forward to seeing how this department moves forward through the process of re-envisioning public safety. I relish the work that will be done by all of you.”

Mayor nitwit Durken pretended she was all aggrieved by the chief’s decision with an email saying she accepted the resignation “with a very heavy heart.”

Sure, hun.

“I regret deeply that she concluded that the best way to serve the city and help the department was a change in leadership, in the hope that would change the dynamics to move forward with the City Council,” Durkan wrote.

Now let’s see who is dumb enough to take Best’s job.

The chief’s resignation comes on the heels of the city’s decision to move ahead with its plans to put an end to the Seattle Police Department.

The city council agreed on a plan to fire 100 police officers and to cut the chief’s salary by $100K. The budget plan is a far cry from cutting the 1,400-officer force “in half,” but it was enough to push Best out the door.
