The cocky Democrats are going around spouting off that they are going to defund law enforcement is drawing a major push back from people all over the country that simply cannot stand their radical flare. The Democratic mayor of Minneapolis is finding out that it may be harder to do than what the city council thinks it will be. The very people that are calling for the defunding of the force were attacking the mayor because he did not support the idea. What he is going to find out is that no matter what he does, that very group of people, which represent a small minority, will never be content.
When the police are finally gone, Mayor Jacob Frey will find that those same people will be coming back for more. They will want more and when there is nothing else to give them, they will simply take over and run Minneapolis into the ground. The fact is that the vast majority of people want things left alone. The mobs roaming the streets do not like rules and laws because of their rebellious hearts. They want to live in absolute anarchy.
The mayor stated that “I’ll work relentlessly with Chief [Medaria] Arradondo and alongside community toward deep, structural reform and addressing systemic racism in police culture. We’re ready to dig in and enact more community-led, public safety strategies on behalf of our city. But, I do not support abolishing the Minneapolis Police Department.” The decision incited the crowd because they did not get what they wanted out of him.
The people that are demanding a state of anarchy are Antifa supporters. The Democrats are blindly believing that they are people living in their cities when in fact they are people from other areas of the country. They simply have come to push their anti-American beliefs on people hoping to change an area of the country they do not live in or support.
Many members of the city council are supporters of the terrorist group Antifa. Some of them have openly voiced their support for the murderous group that attacks people for the fun of it. Councilmember Bender stated that “Our commitment is to end our city’s toxic relationship with the Minneapolis Police Department. It is clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe. Our efforts at incremental reform have failed, period.” They seek to reinvent the police into a department after their own image. The police department should be based on the rule of law and not personal preferences that the mob would like to see.
The national movement to end the police is not widely accepted. The Democrats are reactionary to the extreme that it is all or nothing. There is not any room for middle ground with them. This makes them a very dangerous political party. Frey may not agree with the move in its entirety, but he is open to the idea. He knows if he fully goes along with it then he will not be the mayor at the next election cycle.
One stat shows that “In 2018, the latest year for which such data have been published, African-Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population. In 2018 there were 7,407 black homicide victims. Assuming a comparable number of victims last year, those nine unarmed black victims of police shootings represent 0.1% of all African-Americans killed in 2019. By contrast, a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer.”
The state shows that a major minority is trying to dictate policy that is inconsistent with how a democracy works. The people must vote on such a drastic move. The majority vote rules and everyone should go along with the decision. The sad fact is that the Democratic minority hates the idea of a vote because there are too many people that are going to put a stop to their nonsense of trying to destroy the country.
