Minneapolis Officials Vote to Defund and Dismantle their Police Department After a Week of Savage Riots

It's like they want Trump to win in the biggest landslide in U.S. history or something.

OPINION: The left has gone stark-raving mad. It’s like they want Donald Trump to win in the biggest landslide in U.S. history or something.

Why else would they be defunding police departments, after all of America just sat back and watched what happens when you don’t have police?

Riots. Looting. Beatings. Crime. Mayhem.

From Star Tribune

Nine members of the Minneapolis City Council on Sunday announced they intend to defund and dismantle the city’s police department following the police killing of George Floyd.

Council President Lisa Bender told CNN that with the nine votes the city council members would have a veto-proof majority of the council’s 13 members.

Pressed for details on what the dismantling might look like, Bender told CNN police funding would be shifted to other needs, and the city council would discuss how to replace the current police department.

Insurance prices are going to skyrocket in Minneapolis. How on earth will anyone feel safe? If I lived there, I’d be packing my bags and moving within the hour.

I can’t wait for someone to ask Joe Biden how he feels about dismantling the police forces in liberal-run cities.
