Minneapolis Officials Have A Moment Of Clarity Over Anti-Police Movement
Minneapolis officials were gung-ho about defunding the police Last month when they voted on a proposal to abolish the police. The proposal passed unanimously but it was just the first step in an effort to get it put on the ballot this November. But now a month later the same commission is having second thoughts, when given the chance to add an anti-police measure to the November ballot they voted against it.
"The Minneapolis Charter Commission voted earlier this week to keep a police reform proposal off of November's ballot, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported. The measure would have scrapped a city requirement to maintain a police force of a size based on the city's population."
"A number of commissioners believe both proposals would be bad ideas.
"I believe that if one of these measures were to pass the voters of Minneapolis, the result would be a giant self-inflicted wound,” Commissioner Dan Cohen said, according to the Star-Tribune. Cohen said that if either proposal were approved, "crime would soar, property values on our homes would fall,” and people “would flee the city."
But some of the Minneapolis Libs claim that they are just not ready to abolish the police yet and may put off the vote until they are. They are still planning on slashing the Police Department budget. There have been talks about cutting about 25% of their budget of 193 million.
It is a tough time to be a police officer, especially in these Liberal protester havens like Minneapolis. Yes, that officer was wrong to kneel on Floyd's neck but that doesn't mean all of society is evil and every officer is the devil. But these liberals seem to think we would be better off without police. I can't wait until they see the consequences of their actions. When they call 9-1-1 because a criminal has invaded their home or robbed their store. Maybe then they will think back about how wrong they were to want to gut the police and leave their communities nearly defenseless.
