NOT KIDDING: Minneapolis City Council alarmed by crime surge after defunding police

The radical Democrat Minneapolis City Council, who voted earlier this year to defund the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd, is now suddenly alarmed by the crime surge in the city. Seriously.

NY POST – Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago moved to eliminate the police department, sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents.

Council members pressed police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.

“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents’ calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered. “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.

Council President Lisa Bender accused police of intentionally not enforcing laws or making arrests.

“This is not new,” Bender said. “But it is very concerning in the current context.”

Arradondo, who has served as police chief since 2017, called her comments “troubling to hear” and pledged to address the issue with departmental supervisors.

“We need to make sure that our communities know that we are going to be there, that we’re going to be responsive,” he said. “We’ve taken an oath to do that.”

It’s amazing to me that these radicals are actually blaming the police for the rise in crime, when they are the ones who created a toxic environment for policing. I guarantee you that these MPD officers don’t trust the system anymore and are more worried about doing the ‘wrong thing’, which could land them in prison, than they are about really cracking down on crime.

Earlier this year we 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 percent of his police force. And you can bet those positions won’t be filled anytime soon:

The Minneapolis Police Department’s crime data shows a rise in assaults, robberies and homicides, as well as property crimes and arson, according to Minnesota Public Radio. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than those slain in all of last year.

Arradondo said about 100 officers have left the department or have taken a leave of absence since the start of the year, which is more than double the typical number of officers who either step down from the department or are inactive that year, MPR reported.

As a reminder, here’s what the city council voted to do back in July:

In July, the council took several steps toward dismantling the city’s police department, including approving an amendment to remove $1 million from the police department and reallocate it toward the health department to hire “violence interrupters” who are intended to defuse potentially violent situations.

Minneapolis is a dumpster fire. These Democrats have set up the police force to fail when it comes to battling the rise in crime and you can be sure that they will use this failure as another reason to dismantle the police department and fill it with “violence interrupters”. Never let a crisis go to waste, and if you don’t have a crisis, create one.
