Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago voted to eliminate the police department sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents. Just some of these crimes that surged include daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings, and street racing.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, It just amazes me at how they are blaming the police for the rise in crime when they are the ones who created this mess by defunding them.
Earlier this year it was reported that close to 200 officers wanted to leave the Minneapolis Police Department. According to the police chief, the number that left was around 100 officers. Which is close to 10% of the department, and the way people are treating police right now I would bet those positions won't be filled any time soon.

From protests to riots to looting, Minneapolis has become the standard model of what a Democrat America will look like. After the killing of George Floyd, the Minneapolis City Council vowed to disband the current police department for a more community-based police force. Now, those same council members are crying for help, wondering just where the police have gone since crime is on the rise.
Comprised mostly of democrats, the city council decided back in June to listen to protesters and anti-police instigators and give in to their outrageous demands of a lawless society. They promised to dismantle the MPD for a community-centered system. The result, according to Minnesota Public Radio,
“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.”
