Laura Ingraham tours devastation in Minneapolis, talks to suffering business owners

This is heartbreaking. That demorats have allowed this type of destruction to happen to law-abiding citizens should be a BIG wake-up call.

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.

Spike in robberies and mob beatings in demorat Ilhan Omar’s district

From Fox News: Fox News has obtained a series of disturbing videos showing mob-style attacks in downtown Minneapolis in which police say “vulnerable” victims were targeted and brutally beaten for valuables such as cellphones.

Police told Fox News that an “incredible” law enforcement investigation led to the arrest of 16 people in connection to the videos. They face assault and robbery charges, among others.

In one daytime video, a mob can be seen pummeling a man just outside of the Minneapolis Twins’ stadium.

At one point, the attackers run to gain speed and jump on the victim. They ride a bike over him, take off his pants and beat him with a belt. The victim appears to defend himself but is outnumbered and overpowered.

In another gruesome video, two young men appear to be attacked. They’re punched in the face and appear to fight back. One is knocked unconscious.

In a third video, a young man is surrounded by a mob and beaten unconscious. The video appears to show something being taken from his pocket once he’s on the ground.

All of these videos are emerging as the city of Minneapolis is dealing with a crippling shortage of police officers. The chief of police, Medaria Arradondo, has requested 400 additional officers over the next few years to make up for the shortage.

However, some members of Minneapolis’ City Council argue against the money going toward additional officers. Instead, they say the money should go toward other law enforcement and safety programs.

The city’s mayor, Jacob Frey (demorat), has proposed adding 14 additional officers to the force. Police told Fox News the mayor is supportive of the department and the new policing strategies in the city’s downtown.

The shortage of police is so staggering that over the past year the police department was unable to immediately send a squad car to 6,776 priority one emergencies. That includes situations like shots fired, stabbings and sexual assaults. A Minneapolis police website says priority one calls involve “an imminent threat to personal safety, or the loss or damage to property exists.”

Even worse, police were unable to immediately respond to seven “priority zero” calls, including a baby not breathing and a fellow officer facing imminent danger. Priority zero calls, according to the Minneapolis police website, “include those situations where a known crisis exists that threatens the life of an individual. This is the highest possible priority and the fastest possible response is desired. The MECC objective is to have squads en route to the call within 30 seconds of receipt by the dispatcher.”

“To have to look someone in the eye and tell them that we were unable to get there because we do not have enough resources – it’s unacceptable,” Andy Skoogman, the president of Minnesota Police Chiefs Association, told Fox News.

The chair of the city’s safety committee, Alondra Cano, previously told Fox News that the city council acknowledges there is a crisis and is investing and diversifying its force to better represent the community.

“I do appreciate that the mayor has put forward an investment strategy in our department because we can’t walk around with the same broken department since the 1950s,” Cano told Fox News. “We’re thankful that the information is out in the open. We would rather have a truthful conversation than pretend like this isn’t happening.”
