Just months after the Minneapolis City Council called for “dismantling” the police department in the wake of George Floyd’s death, they are now panicking that there’s not enough policing to deal with the spike in violent crime. 

During a recent meeting that was supposed to be a study session on police reform, Democratic council members instead relayed the frustrations they’re hearing from constituents.

"Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?” said council member Jamal Osman, reports MPR News. “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.”

The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than were slain in all of last year. Property crimes, like burglaries and auto thefts, are also up. Incidents of arson have increased 55 percent over the total at this point in 2019. (MPR News)

Even typically safer wards are seeing a major spike in violence, with residents telling their council members they feel “terrorized.”

  • Yep, if the States under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution are the laboratories of our constitutional republic, then Minneapolis has shown Minnesota to be one of the most spectacular failed experiments in US history, and on a par with the disasters in New York, California and Oregon.

  • Send in the social workers, right. I guess they're " white privilege* is talking to them again. Jamel Olson actually went on TV to say that calling 911 was showing your white privilege right? Well they got what they asked for. poor people of Minneapolis need to take out the trash' and elect sane council members. Just saying.

  • It doesn't really matter what the City Council did because we have a strong law and order president in Trump who sent in the National Guard to clean up the place. 

  • City council members, you made your bed, now lay in it.

  • Police are retiring and getting hard to replace due to horrid leadership from the city. Burn baby burn, you voted for that idiocy, you live with it.

  •  Didn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how this was going to end .

  • isn't that the truth.

  • Typical of City/Town councils everywhere. They only care about the vote!

  • Minneapolis, you got what you asked for. 

  • Typical looney-tune Democrats, who are just as likely to start blaming their problems on global warming next. Trying to understand these lunatics is just trying to make sense out of nonsense; a total waste of time.
