Minneapolis City Council alarmed by crime surge after defunding police
We are very much for police reform and have been for years, as anyone can see by going through our archives. But Minneapolis shouldn’t be “alarmed.” This seems a pretty simple equation.
(From The New York Post)
Minneapolis City Council members, who just two months ago moved to eliminate the police department, sounded the alarm during a Wednesday meeting about a surge in crime seen by their constituents.
Council members pressed Police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents’ calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered.
