Minnesota Student Govt Leader Caught On Video Telling Peers To Commit A Felony
Liberals are under this ignorant belief that the police are bad. We saw them last summer rioting, demanding the police be abolished or defunded, depending on how extreme their view was. Many of the blue city leaders who buckled and defunded the police have now refunded the police after they saw crime levels spike due to the lack of manpower. But I guess some liberals just don't get it. A student at the University of Minnesota, that works in the student government, instructed her fellow students to make false emergency calls in order to give the police hell. She was caught on camera saying as much.
A student asked: "When you say disrupt UMPD, what exactly do you mean by that?"
Meyers replied, "Make their lives hell. Annoy the s*** out of them... Like, use up their resources, make their officers show up to something."

Here it is.

"The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association and Law Enforcement Labor Services issued a joint statement on Tuesday, where the police unions called for an investigation into the situation and warned that making phony 911 calls can be a felony.
"Minnesota law prohibits using emergency calls to report a false emergency or crime, and claims that lead to serious injury or death is a felony publishable by 10 years imprisonment and/or a maximum fine of $20,000," the letter reads.
Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association Executive Director Brian Peters added, "Actively planning to thwart UMPD by generating false calls for help is insulting to the overwhelming majority of the campus community that relies on public safety services."
"Last month the campus community had 13 incidents of aggravated assault, 52 burglaries, 22 car thefts, 4 sexual assaults, numerous thefts, and a murder on or near campus," Peters continued. "We're frustrated that elected student leaders would purposefully choose to stir further division to make the campus less safe."
Law Enforcement Labor Services Executive Director Jim Mortenson said, "Everyone deserves to be safe, and advocating to impede police from assisting victims of crime is mindboggling."
Who is this really hurting? If the students waste the police's time, then they just won't be available for actual emergencies. So that means this "brilliant" student is just hurting her community with her instructions. She is also telling her peers to commit felonies and she is supposed to be a leader at her school?
