What is The Minneapolis City Council Thinking?

(AbsoluteNews.com) – Last week, we mentioned a movement in Minneapolis, Minnesota to “dismantle” the police department. Over the weekend, prominent city leaders started speaking out in favor of the idea. One official, however, is not happy.

On Sunday, June 7, 9 of the 13 members of the city council made a pledge to disband the police department. The leaders told The New York Times they want to set up a new system in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a former officer.

Mayor Jacob Frey is not onboard with the idea, though. He said he would not support the plan by the city council and preferred to work with Police Chief Medaria Arradondo to address any issues within the department.

Dismantling the police department is probably not the best idea — especially given the fact rioters have destroyed at least $55 million worth of property. They even set a police precinct on fire. You’d think the city council would recognize the need to protect residents from further losses, but apparently not.
