Police officers are leaving the Minneapolis Police Department in droves. The Democrat-controlled city council voted to defund the police after the death of George Floyd in police custody, and the city is experiencing an exponential increase in crime.
The Washington Post reported on the situation in Minneapolis that, “Nearly six months after George Floyd’s death here sparked massive protests and left a wide swath of the city burned and destroyed, Minneapolis is grappling with dueling crises: an unprecedented wave of violence and droves of officer departures that the Minneapolis Police Department warns could soon leave the force unable to respond to emergencies.”
The situation is so bad that 911 calls will soon go unanswered by the police. The people of Minneapolis have been stripped of any civil protection by the Democrat city council.
The Washington Post’s report noted that “bullets zip through this predominantly Black neighborhood, hitting cars and homes and people.”
As predicted by many, Democrats have, in fact, made life harder and more dangerous in the Black community. The violence experienced by the community will continue until the council is replaced.
The Minneapolis city council wanted to replace the police with a new public safety method, but their plan is only increasing the misery of the people of Minneapolis.
