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.

Exactly. There’s already a “muslim travelers’ assistance” courtesy patrol (women in chadors w/ yellow reflective belts) in the airport there.

If they replace the Minneapolis PD with social workers, Minneapolis will attract criminals who will kill and pillage like we’ve never seen before. And, there will be a LOT of dead social workers. Insanity rules there.

It might be interesting to watch what happens, but of course the MSM won’t say boo I’m sure.

I’ll borrow an idea of FOTM writer Tom Wigand (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/progressives-seeking-refugee-status-in-red-states-and-some-ideas-for-repelling-them):
 
Police-defunded Minneapolis will devolve into Mogadishu.

The process already has begun. Lock and load, for your survival may soon depend on how well you can shoot. No police = you’re on your own.

Does this city have gun bans for citizens? If so I would be leaving very very soon.

Oh darn! I called 911 and the social worker who was assigned to respond to rape and robbery was booked up for 6 weeks. Since then, the perp has long-fled and I am glad to be alive, tho’ violated..”.lucky” me. I’ll put my name on the waiting list and in the mean time organize my notes for the eventual meeting so if she/he happens to catch the perp the NEXT time in the act (HA!), it might solve my problem, too.
