Far-left Minneapolis city councilman Steve Fletcher is actually floating the idea of disbanding the police while his streets are on fire with businesses being looted and the public in grave danger due to the riotous mob.
Fletcher, who represents his constituents in Ward 3, is talking about getting rid of cops and letting chaos and disorder reign.
All of our partner institutions are making the choice to sever ties with MPD. I'm hearing from more and more of my constituents who want to do the same. https://t.co/mSC2i2c7kG

“I don’t know yet, though several of us on the council are working on finding out, what it would take to disband the MPD and start fresh with a community-oriented, non-violent public safety and outreach capacity,” Fletcher wrote in another Tweet.
“Our city needs a public safety capacity that doesn’t fear our residents. That doesn’t need a gun at a community meeting. That considers itself part of our community. That doesn’t resort quickly to pepper spray when people are understandably angry. That doesn’t murder black men,” he continued.
“We can totally reimagine what public safety means, what skills we’re recruiting for, what tools we do and don’t need. We can invest in cultural competency and mental health training, de-escalation and conflict resolution,” Fletcher added.
Fletcher is using flowery language to mask his notion of allowing criminal gangs to run wild throughout Minneapolis. Before the Floyd case, violent crime was already spiraling out of control as black mobs targeted and capriciously attacked random white people in broad daylight:
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.
The white guilt of soft, weak, cowardly leftists like Fletcher will doom Western Civilization forever, with the savages reigning supreme over the former land of the free.
Michigan Election Day Whistleblowers Demand for Republicans to Convene Voter Fraud Hearings
Republicans are trying to surrender.
Michigan whistleblowers who have signed sworn affidavits attesting to grotesque electoral fraud by Democrats are demanding to be heard in a legislative hearing similar to what took place in Pennsylvania earlier this week.
“Media says they see no evidence of fraud. Legislative leadership says, “We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan.” Hundreds of poll challengers who witnessed fraud such as myself beg to differ. We believe that the truth about election needs to finally be heard without a media censorship filter,” former state senator Patrick Colbeck said in a press release.
“The people of Michigan deserve fair, open, transparent elections, and this year, for the first time in decades, their trust in our elections was shattered. If lawmakers fail in this most basic duty to hear the testimony of dozens of not hundreds of eyewitnesses, Michiganders at large will lose faith not only in their electoral process but in their Legislature as well,” said poll worker Adam de Angeli of Milan.
Republican leaders in Michigan are dropping the ball and going along with the dog-and-pony-show scam that the election was fair and square. They are effectively surrendering to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her extreme left-wing corruption, on the election and every other issue.
State representative Matt Hall, who is the leader of the House Oversight Committee, could use his power to convene a hearing to allow whistleblowers to speak out and a proper investigation to occur from there. However, he has refused to do so up until this point, taking cues from House Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey.
“We considered it, and we determined that logistically, it wasn’t going to work,” Hall said to Bridge Michigan for why he does not plan to hold a legislative hearing, making up a pathetic excuse to stab his fellow countrymen in their backs.
Big League Politics reported on how it was a top Michigan Republican attorney who voted with Democrats to certify the dubious election results even as countless whistleblowers attested to witnessing a third-world style vote steal:
One Republican on the state board of canvassers, Norm Shinkle abstained from the vote, being too weak to actually oppose electoral impropriety. The other Republican on the state board of canvassers, Aaron Van Langevelde, actually voted with the Democrats to certify election results marred with improprieties and abnormalities.
“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’”
“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.
Van Langevelde received a great deal of support from the liberal media. He also received the backing of the House Republican leadership in the state, who will keep him employed in his cushy role with the party for going along with the façade.
“Aaron has been a very valued member of this team and will continue to be next session,” said Republican Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth of Farwell.
Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield of Clarklake praised Van Langevelde’s betrayal as a great example of “America at work.”
“As we have been saying consistently for weeks, the Legislature will uphold the law and respect this result as it works to improve the process for next time,” Chatfield said.
Van Langevelde works as a policy adviser and deputy legal counsel for the Michigan House Republican Policy Office. He was effectively carrying out policy from his GOP establishment masters when he joined Democrats to betray his oath of office earlier this week.
Michigan Republicans have urged activists to consider contacting Hall, who frequently claims to be a pro-Trump strong conservative when it benefits his political ambitions, and let him know his career prospects are dead in the water unless he does the right thing and holds hearings immediately.
