Minneapolis City Council President Announces Plan to ‘Dismantle’ City Police Department

Looks like they’ll go without police.

The President of the Minneapolis City Council appeared to suggest that the council would abolish the Minneapolis Police Department on Thursday, replacing the law enforcement agency with a “transformative new model of public safety.”

Jeremiah Ellison, the city council member to advocate for the proposal, made the call in a Thursday tweet. Ellison is the son of Keith Ellison, Minnesota’s far-left Attorney General with a known track record of ANTIFA sympathies.

Should Minneapolis actually go through with Ellison’s plan to abolish its police department, it would become the first major American city to go without a police department, instead opting for a model long favored by left-wing activists.

Lisa Bender, the President of the city council, later endorsed Ellison’s proposal.

Liberals and progressives who have long advocated for a municipal model without law enforcement will now have an experiment in which to test their idea, in which Minneapolis residents will be subjected to the unprecedented experiment.

It’s totally unclear what Ellison is envisioning in his proposal to dismantle the city’s police department. It’s possible the city council merely mandates a new set of restrictions and policy changes on the department, but such a watered down reform plan would fall well short of the ‘dismantling’ Ellison is advertising to his constituents.

The far leftist had earlier announced his open support of ANTIFA.

If this goes through, expect to see gun sales rise in the Twin Cities metro area dramatically, and a wide exodus of residents from the city concerned over the prospect of living in a municipality with no real law enforcement agency.

Virginia Man Creates Snitch List of 1,200+ People Who Ratted on Citizens for Violating COVID-19 Edicts

He received the information from a Freedom of Information Act request.

A resident of Forest, Va. has assembled a list of over 1,200 snitches who reported their neighbors for potential violations of the state’s COVID-19 lockdown.

Isaiah Knight compiled the list after filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, which gave him the name of people who participated in the Soviet-style snitching campaign against their fellow man. He received information from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that 1,293 people made complaints to authorities.

“The short answer is I wanted to see how many people would rat out Anne Frank. And it’s essentially that,” Knight said.

“What you see on this list from the Department of Health is people’s businesses. You see a lot of people who are complaining about churches. And I just don’t think the government should be telling people whether or not they should be wearing a mask or not,” he added.

Knight does not plan to release the personal information of the snitches, but he wants potential snitches to know that mindlessly complying with government tyranny could have serious consequences.

“I hate that, that you have neighbors who are reporting neighbors. People who are reporting bodies of religion and churches. And I just I hate that and I think our Commonwealth is so much better than snitching on each other and creating a culture like that,” he said.

The COVID-19 pandemic is being used to normalize some of the worst Orwellian overreach imaginable:

The coronavirus pandemic is being used to escalate the push for Big Brother, and tech corporations are salivating at the opportunity to help enforce social distancing edicts with terrifying innovations.

The Intercept has reported on the push to slap FitBit-style bracelets onto people in order to track them and coerce their behavior. AiRISTA Flow, a tech firm based out of Maryland, is marketing bracelets that would beep whenever a person comes within six feet of another individual in the workplace.

“When people come within six feet of each other for a period of time,” the company wrote in a press release about their creepy and invasive device, “the device makes an audible chirp and a record of the contact is made in the AiRISTA Flow software system.”

The technology would also allow employers to track every violation of social distancing edicts committed by their workers. The workers could then be reprimanded, or even fired, based off of the information gathered by the device.

The Redpoint Positioning Corporation is developing similar technology to turn employers into quarantine enforcement brigades. They have announced that they are working on modifying “cutting-edge technology … already used by leading companies worldwide in third-party logistics, auto manufacturing, mine operation” to be used in the enforcement of social distancing edicts. They plan on tagging people and products in the workplace to allow employers to institute Draconian restrictions on the freedom of movement.

“If social distancing parameters, such as a 1- or 2-meter radius, are violated between workers, the tag alarm will alert them to the hazard,” Redpoint wrote in their press release.

“If an infection does occur, historical data from the system will allow for highly accurate contact tracing, as records can show the individuals who were near the infected party,” they added.

Israeli surveillance firm SuperCom is repackaging services that are used on criminals to enforce home confinement on ordinary people in the workplace. They are calling their service “PureCare,” and it is described as a “state-of-the-art solution for quarantine and isolation monitoring to aid government efforts in containing and limiting the reach of infectious diseases.” They claim it is “a non-intrusive patient friendly system that constantly tracks patient location within buildings, vehicles and outside.”

They noted in their press release that they have experienced a sharp increase in “government agencies looking to restrict the spread of COVID-19 among their general population” and anticipate “additional potential industry demand for electronic monitoring services coming from the incarcerated American population.”

Perhaps punishing snitches who comply with government tyranny could be a way to halt the seemingly inevitable rise of Big Brother.
