Minneapolis police are asking their City Council to fund 14 more officers to deal with a crime wave, as mobs of roving young men are regularly targeting drunk men for vicious gang beat-downs.
Law enforcement are requesting three more investigators, eight additional neighborhood outreach officers, and three more traffic enforcement personnel. Mayor Jacob Frey is standing with Police Chief Medaria Arradondo, arguing that more officers are necessary to deal with this growing problem.
Business owners have complained about the gang beat-downs, which may be racially motivated. One recent instance occurred at Target Field Plaza and happened in broad daylight. It involved a group of African-American men targeting a lone Caucasian individual, knocking him unconscious, stomping his body, throwing a potted plant on him, and then crushing him with a bicycle during a robbery.

“I don’t think I have ever seen anything like what I saw at Target Field,” said Ken Sherman, who owns 7 Steakhouse and Sushi.
“Look, stealing is one thing. But the level of viciousness goes far beyond I think anything any of us who are civil people imagine,” Sherman added.
There is a 53 percent increase in robberies year-to-year in Minneapolis since 2018. Mayor Frey believes a greater police presence would help send the message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated.
“We want officers out there on the street walking the beat, preventing some of these serious crimes before they take place to begin with,” Frey said.
He is not getting much support from the city council, as there are several councilmembers who are happy to keep the status quo in place.
“I want to tie our investments to structural change that improves the performance of the police department,” councilman Steve Fletcher said.
“Then we do need to careful about who we’re targeting. Because you’re basically criminalizing standing on the street,” Fletcher added.
Sherman believes that the city is suffering because of the soft-on-crime policies pushed by liberal public officials.
“I think the core of the problem is a city council that is more concerned about being politically correct than making people safe,” Sherman said.
They certainly won’t be receiving any help from their Congresswoman, who is Somali-born socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar. She is more focused on punishing white people and demonizing the President than she is with fixing problems within her own crime-ridden district.
“I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country,” Omar said in an interview from earlier this year.
“And so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe — Americans safe inside of this country — we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men,” she added.
Omar has also targeted President Trump with her hateful, divisive rhetoric.
You are stoking white nationalism bc you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda.

Minneapolis is quickly looking like a city within a third-world country, and their representative to Congress is indicative of that.
