Minneapolis City Council members are now raising alarm about the surge in crime they have seen, just two months after moving to eliminate their police department. What did they expect? Rainbows and butterflies?
Council members are now putting pressure on Police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the crimes which include: daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, “That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.”
Then, Council President Lisa Bender accused officers of not enforcing laws or making arrests on purpose. “This is not new,” Bender said. “But it is very concerning in the current context.”
What do they want? Police or no police? You can't have your cake and eat it too!
NY Post reports:
Arradondo, who has served as police chief since 2017, called her comments “troubling to hear” and pledged to address the issue with departmental supervisors.
“We need to make sure that our communities know that we are going to be there, that we’re going to be responsive,” he said. “We’ve taken an oath to do that.”
The Minneapolis Police Department’s crime data shows a rise in assaults, robberies and homicides, as well as property crimes and arson, according to Minnesota Public Radio. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than those slain in all of last year.
Arradondo said about 100 officers have left the department or have taken a leave of absence since the start of the year, which is more than double the typical number of officers who either step down from the department or are inactive that year, MPR reported.
In July, the council took several steps toward dismantling the city’s police department, including approving an amendment to remove $1 million from the police department and reallocate it toward the health department to hire “violence interrupters” who are intended to defuse potentially violent situations.
Think they are realizing their mistake yet? Hopefully it's not too late and they don't let their pride get in the way of making things right. Defend the police!
