What could possibly go wrong? Protesters want to replace Minneapolis PD with ‘community-led safety’

Progressives never think through the consequences of their “brilliant” ideas.

You know what you need when a burglar or rapist breaks into your home in the middle of the night? A social worker. Yeah, that’ll work out just A-OK.

From MyFoxChicago:

“Thousands gathered for another weekend of protests in Minneapolis. Their chants calling for justice for George Floyd but also the defunding the Minneapolis Police Department.

As they marched down University Avenue in northeast Minneapolis on Saturday, thousands called for an end to the city’s police department. “There’s no real path forward without radical change,” one member of the rally said.

Organizers of the event are calling for a transition from traditional policing to what they describe as “community-led safety.”

“There could be a system of first responders similar to a police force but they should be members of the community, not living in suburbs,” said Jordan, another protester from St. Paul. “I think most the jobs that police do can be done by social workers. Let’s hire more social workers and pay them a really good living wage.”

The event organizers, Black Visions Collective, is calling on Mayor Jacob Frey and the city council to defund the police department. Several city council members have said they support such a plan.

“As we strengthen community networks and relationships there will be us looking out for one another so there will be fewer robberies and break-ins and such,” said Erika Thorne of Minneapolis.

“We’ve tried all these reform initiatives and all these programs,” said University of Minnesota student Sandrind Sugi. “There have been black mayors, there was a black president, and nothing has worked and at some point you have to cut it lose.”

Read the whole story here.

Don’t worry ladies if you are hesitant to arm yourself. Just pray that a neighbor saw the break-in and was looking out for you. Or make sure you have a full bladder.

Note this happened yesterday afternoon: “A veto-proof majority of Minneapolis City Council members will announce today their commitment to disbanding the city’s embattled police department following the killing of George Floyd.”

Good luck, Minneapolis.

Black Lives Matter will have armed officers; wants police defunded nationwide

On ABC’s Nightline on June 1, 2020, Black Lives Matter (BLM) cofounder Patrisse Cullors, who is also a TV writer, claims that “police terror” against “black communities” had gotten worse after Trump became President, and that Trump told police to hurt people. She said:

“We’ve seen a ratcheting up of pushing law enforcement to be more brutal, use excessive force. He has told law enforcement, in his own words to hurt people… And what we know are those people are mostly black people.”

Cullors says BLM is calling for the defunding of police nationwide:

“Many people don’t understand that the foundation of policing is actually in slave patrolling. The first law enforcement agencies were out to catch black people who were leaving — fleeing from slavery. We want to reduce law enforcement in our communities. The more contact we have with law enforcement, the more death is going to happen with black people.”

This is the statement on the Black Lives Matter website (the website supplied the bold emphasis):

#DefundThePolice

Enough is enough.

Our pain, our cries, and our need to be seen and heard resonate throughout this entire country.

We demand acknowledgment and accountability for the devaluation and dehumanization of Black life at the hands of the police.

We call for radical, sustainable solutions that affirm the prosperity of Black lives.

George Floyd’s violent death was a breaking point — an all too familiar reminder that, for Black people, law enforcement doesn’t protect or save our lives. They often threaten and take them.

Right now, Minneapolis and cities across our country are on fire, and our people are hurting — the violence against Black bodies felt in the ongoing mass disobedience, all while we grapple with a pandemic that is disproportionately affecting, infecting, and killing us.

We call for an end to the systemic racism that allows this culture of corruption to go unchecked and our lives to be taken.

We call for a national defunding of police. We demand investment in our communities and the resources to ensure Black people not only survive, but thrive. If you’re with us, add your name to the petition right now and help us spread the word.

Not only is Black Lives Matter calling for police to be defunded, nationwide, BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome told the Daily Mail that BLM plans to follow in the footsteps of the Black Panthers Party by developing an armed branch of “peace officers” to “combat” police brutality in black communities. Newsome said:

“We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities…. We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities.”

The Black Panthers Party in the 1960s created “peace officers” who open-carried firearms while patrolling black communities in order to deter police brutality. Newsome said that the BLM “peace officers” would also be armed and open carry guns in states that allow it.

Back to BLM cofounder Patrisse Cullors.

Like Meryl Streep, John Kerry, Anita Dunn, Nancy Pelosi and John McCain, Cullors also has the unsettling habit of sticking her tongue out like a snake when she speaks. In Cullors’ case, she doesn’t just flick her tongue, she sticks out and rolls her tongue from one side of her mouth to the other.

In the video below, her snake tongue makes its appearance after the 0:24 mark.

Note that exorcists have observed that those who are demon-possessed can take on the look of a reptile or snake. Below are FOTM’s other posts on snake-tongue flickers:
