Members Of The Minneapolis City Council Flip On Dismantling Police Department

Published

on

A new report out of Minneapolis says that there are a few members on city council who regret their pledge to defund and dismantle the local police department, which was largely made as a knee jerk reaction to the violent riots and looting that was sparked after the death of George Floyd.

The city has experience a massive increase in violent crime ever since the decision was made to defund local law enforcement. Strangely, the increase in crime confused and baffled many on the city council who just couldn’t seem to wrap their minds around the idea that actions — like having smaller police presence on the street as a result of less funding — have consequences that negatively impact their community.

Council member Andrew Johnson, who supported the pledge in June, told the outlet that he meant the words “in spirit,” not by the letter. Meanwhile, Council member Phillippe Cunningham said the language in the pledge was “up for interpretation.”

“I’m not taking any pledge, if that means people throw bottles at me then fine,” Palmisano wrote.

Councilwoman Lisa Goodman, who also was not part of the nine who voted for the pledge, told Fox News that she has “no regrets about that then or now.”

Meanwhile, younger council members like Alondra Cano and Jeremiah Ellison, who vowed on Twitter to “dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department” and “end the policing system,” are sticking to it.

Mayor Jacob Frey is also skeptical about the pledge, saying, “I think the initial announcement created a certain level of confusion from residents at a time when the city really needed that stability. I also think that the declaration itself meant a lot of different things to a lot of different people – and that included a healthy share of activists that were anticipating abolition.”

The pledge was a stupid idea. It was clearly meant to appease the angry protesters who were destroying the city, which was the wrong course of action to take for the wrong reasons. Instead of defunding police and putting their citizens at risk of becoming victims of crime, the city council should have enforced law and order, while encouraging peaceful protesting.

It’s really not that hard.

Save conservative media!

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
