Black Leaders In Minneapolis Criticize City Council Plan To Defund Police

Published

on

After a month of protests, many of which turned violent, the all-Democratic leadership of the Minneapolis city council decided that the best course of action would be to capitulate to the demands of these rioters and looters by coming up with a plan to defund the police, opting to create what they are calling a “transformative new model for cultivating safety” in the city.

However, a few influential voices from the black community within Minneapolis are not fans of the idea and are pushing back on the city council’s plan.

Back on June 12, the council voted to unanimously replace the Minneapolis Police Department with what they are calling a “community-led public safety system” that will involve “healers, elders, youth, artists, and organizers” tasked with leading “deep community engagement on race and public safety.” They’ll also offer “transformative justice in partnerships informed by the needs of every block in our city.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

“Egregious, grotesque, absurd, crazy, ridiculous. These are a handful of the words that some local African American leaders are using to rebuke the Minneapolis City Council’s moves toward dismantling the Police Department, even as they demand an overhaul of law enforcement,” the Tribune reported Thursday. “While the movement to defund the police has been driven by Black activists, others say that city politicians rushed the process and failed to include a police chief who has the backing of many Black residents.”

One of the black leaders, the former president of the NAACP Minneapolis, accused the city council of showing “a complete disregard for the voices and perspectives of many members of the African American community.”

“We have not been consulted as the city makes its decisions, even though our community is the one most heavily impacted by both police violence and community violence,” said former NAACP leader Nekima Levy Armstrong, as reported by the Tribune. Armstrong went on to accuse the council of “seizing upon the national spotlight to look as if they’re making a difference.”

Pastor Brian Herron told the Star Tribune that he believed the city council is just “pandering.”

He’s absolutely right. This is just pandering. Which is a fact that should cause many individuals in the black community to be super angry, as this isn’t a viable solution to reigning in police brutality while not sacrificing the safety of whole communities. It’s just a political stunt.

Let’s hope the city council comes to its senses on this issue and that the people of the city reject this horrific idea come November.

Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

If President Trump did anything remotely close to what Biden is doing regarding limiting the press’ access to him, he would’ve been impeached a third time. Must be nice to have the mainstream media on your side! From New York Post: WASHINGTON — The White House is imposing a new $170 COVID-19 testing fee on reporters who want to access the West Wing, in what critics say is the latest step that constrains press coverage of President Biden. The Biden administration already imposed sweeping restrictions, including capping at 80 the number of pre-approved journalists who are able to access White House grounds on a given day — each of whom must take a COVID-19 rapid test before 1 p.m. CONTINUED: Under former President Donald Trump, any reporter with a “hard pass” was able to breeze past the White House gates at any time and without taking a coronavirus test. But few abused the privilege due to peer pressure to limit visits. The latest restrictions were announced in an on-the-record email from White House Correspondents’ Association President Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for The Associated Press.

Anybody who believes that police officers are doing anything other than keeping our streets safe and arresting criminals is completely delusional. All you have to do, you know, if you don’t want to be shot by a cop, is cooperate with instructions. Why is that such a difficult concept for liberals to understand? From The Daily Wire: Los Angeles County’s new top prosecutor has made another controversial move that has angered local law enforcement unions. According to FOX 11, “Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is under scrutiny after he hired a public defender who helped with his campaign to a high-ranking prosecutor position in his administration.” The outlet reports that Tiffany Blacknell “has in the past posted anti-police comments on social media,” which first surfaced last year. CONTINUED: Investigative reporter Bill Melugin posted screenshots of Ms. Blacknell’s previous comments disparaging law enforcement to Twitter earlier this week. Blacknell has referred to LAPD officers as “barbarians” and called for the abolition of prisons. Melugin also shared a photograph of Blacknell posing with D.A. Gascón and another showing Blacknell donning a t-shirt that read, “The Police Are Trained To Kill Us.” According to Melugin, “the former public defender posted on Facebook during the series of looting[s] that took place in May 2020 that she herself was a looter during the 1992 Rodney King riots.” https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1364787696418217988?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1364787696418217988%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us https://twitter.com/NiggaTheory/status/1306977001857638400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306977001857638400%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us
