After pushing to Defund The Police members of the Minneapolis City Council are now wondering where the Police are.

The meeting was slated as a Minneapolis City Council study session on police reform.
But for much of the two-hour meeting, council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults and shootings. And they asked Arradondo what the department is doing about it.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?” said Jamal Osman, newly elected council member of Ward 6. He said he’s already been inundated with complaints from residents that calls for police aren’t being answered.
“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,” Osman said.

Crimes have been skyrocketing in Minneapolis:
The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than were slain in all of last year. Property crimes, like burglaries and auto thefts, are also up. Incidents of arson have increased 55 percent over the total at this point in 2019.
Due to anti-Cop rhetoric, they have had double the cops leave:
Arradondo said around 100 officers have left the department or have taken leave since the beginning of 2020. That’s more than double the usual number of officers who either step down from the department or who are inactive each year.
It is amazing to me how these liberal politicians can be so disconnected from reality. They don’t even see the fact that their policies are responsible for what is happening. They attack the police. They call them racists. They defund them. Then they wonder why they can’t do their jobs.
The only solution is to vote out these politicians pushing defund the police policies and give the police their ability to keep Americans safe back.
