The radicals in the Democrat Party are disappointed at the changes they are seeing.
Americans aren’t willing to allow American cities to burn.
Ilhan Omar burst into tears because this one stinging defeat failed.
Rep. Ilhan Omar told a crowd in the wake of George Floyd’s death that the Minneapolis police were cancer and needed to be removed even if no one had any clue how society could function without police.
“The Minneapolis Police Department is rotten to the root, and so when we dismantle it, we get rid of that cancer, and we allow for something beautiful to rise, and that reimagining allows us to figure out what public safety looks like for us,” the Congresswoman said.
Yet without the police,there is no public safety and citizens end up at the mercy of a violent and destructive mob.
While the way that George Floyd was treated shows a problematic use of police force, it will be years before Minneapolis recovers.
Over 1,500 businesses were vandalized and 150 buildings were set on fire.
“They don’t care about my business,” owner Kris Wyrobek said of city officials. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”
The Minneapolis City Council didn’t care about the people who suffered because of their handling of the riots, instead they wanted to concentrate on appearing woke and appealing to those on the radical left.
They decided to abandon their plans to abolish the police, not because of any common sense or a desire to protect their people, but because abolishing the police is now unpopular.
“The Minneapolis City Council’s resolve to end the city’s police department has lost momentum, the result of the failure to get the question before voters in November and council members’ diverging ideas on the role of sworn officers in the future,” the Star-Tribune reported Tuesday. “In the three months since nine council members pledged to end the department following George Floyd’s killing, the city has experienced a surge in violent crime, another night of unrest and blowback from residents who felt they had been left out of the initial conversations about change.”
Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender claimed that wanting police to stop crimes was a form of “privilege.”
Now she says the issue of dismantling the police is more “complicated” than she thought it would be.
“I think when you take a statement and then move into policy work, it gets more complicated,” Bender said.
Some on the radical left are disappointed that the Minneapolis City Council failed to get rid of the police while in the middle of a wave of violence that could haunt their city for decades.
