Minneapolis city councilors are describing their constituents as “terrorized” by a recent violent crime wave that has swept through the city, with the Minneapolis Police “nowhere to be seen.” The council recently advanced a proposal to abolish and replace the Minneapolis Police Department.
Jamal Osman of Ward 6 described the public safety situation in such terms in a council meeting with Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo.
The actual plan to abolish the Minneapolis Police seems to have fallen by the wayside, but the police seem largely absent from sections of the cities after some of the worst riots in American history erupted in the city after the George Floyd.
There have already been more murders through the first nine months of 2020 than there were in all of 2019, and crimes were generally down in the early months of the year on account of the coronavirus pandemic before the riots. Burglaries, auto theft and arson are all up as well, with the latter up by a considerable amount.
And yet, the police appear largely absent to local residents, who Osman is saying have come to him with their grievances. The police didn’t end up being defunded, but for all intents and purposes residents of Minneapolis seem to be living everyday life without them.
Osman says constituents are telling him police have adopted a politically correct approach to law enforcement, openly declining to arrest and charge stone cold criminals.
Jeremy Schroeder, who represents Minneapolis’ 11th ward, is stating his constituents are experiencing the same thing, including a string of robberies and break-ins of small businesses already devastating by the riots and coronavirus.
More than 700 buildings were damaged by the initial George Floyd race riots, and more than $50 million of damage was inflicted upon the city, with some estimates ranging the damages at over $100 million. The city may never recover.
Minneapolis has destroyed its once serene reputation through radical pro-crime leftism, and as the city residents realize they’ve been left to the devices of violent criminals, they have no one other than the city’s leftist council to blame.
Career Criminal Killed Two Siblings in Stolen Car Crash…He was Free Despite 18 Prior Felony Convictions
This is what liberal criminal justice reform creates.
Orlando, Fla. resident Reginald Lamar Harris, 47, is behind bars yet again after speeding on the wrong side of the road after allegedly stealing a car and killing two siblings while being chased by law enforcement.
Harris has quite the extensive rap sheet, which includes 18 felony convictions, 20 misdemeanor convictions, and eight prison sentences, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. Still, he was allowed back on the streets despite his history of recidivism, and two innocent people are now dead as a result.
“I mean, the bottom line is (he was a) career criminal. He murdered two people. Those kids were murdered. It’s no different than if he took a gun and put it to their heads, what he did to those kids,” Chitwood said.
Harris was believed to have been driving in excess of 100 miles per hour during the time of the crash. 21-year-old Domynick Milis, and his 18-year-old sister, Danycka Milis, were killed in the crash. Kyley Larsen, 17, and Drake Milis, 13, were in the back seat and injured in the crash but are expected to survive. The survivors have created a GoFundMe which has already raised almost $150,000.
Big League Politics has reported on the explosion of crime across the country as liberal criminal justice reform allows dangerous thugs back onto the streets:
A 21-year old man with two convictions for violent crimes as a juvenile has been arrested in the shooting homicide of a Nashville, Tennessee nurse. 26-year Caitlyn Kaufman was shot and killed as she was driving to work at St. Thomas West Hospital in Nashville in I-440 on December 3rd, with local law enforcement launching an extensive investigation to apprehend a suspect afterwards.
An anonymous tip led Metropolitan Nashville Police to arrest 21-year old Devaunte Hill at an apartment complex on Friday. He’s being charged with criminal homicide in the death of Kaufman.
NMPD Chief John Drake announced in a press conference that 21-year old Hill had implicated himself in the highway shooting death of Kaufman in an interview with detectives following his arrest. Ballistic testing also allegedly matches rounds fired in the shooting with a 9mm handgun in Hill’s possession. A motive in the shooting is still unclear, with the investigation indicating that six rounds were fired at Kaufman’s vehicle from the corner of the road…
Shockingly, Hill was originally charged with four counts of attempted homicide in his 2016 aggravated assault conviction, having shot his grandmother and his minor sister and nephews. Somehow, he was spared serious prison time after shooting three people, including two children.
Most recently, Hill was arrested as an adult on charges of charges of assault, driving without a license, failure to be booked and drug paraphernalia dating back to as recently as August.
Left-wing policies combined with a religious devotion to diversity and multiculturalism are a death sentence to Western Civilization. There will be more innocent people who suffer due to this agenda.
