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.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Ends Statewide Mask Mandate: “It’s Time to Open Texas 100%”
Enough is enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott finally announced an end to statewide mask and closing mandates on Tuesday, charting a path away from coronavirus lockdowns.
All businesses within the state of Texas will be able to open “100%” after the Governor’s proclamation. After a full year of coronavirus restrictions, Abbott has determined that it’s time for Texans to make their own decision on following health and safety mandates.
The decision to end lockdown restrictions in Texas follows Florida’s approach, and Texas is easily the biggest state to end restrictions on everyday life in the United States. Texas had a varied experience with the coronavirus, with Governor Abbott at one point reinstating restrictions after a second wave of the disease.
Governor Abbott cited the success of President Trump’s life-saving coronavirus vaccine in bringing an end to COVID-19 restrictions. He indicated that the risk of the virus will remain, but that vaccinating vulnerable populations and allowing businesses was the right course ahead for the Lone Star State. The restrictions end on Wednesday.
Abbott believes that nearly all Texans ages 60 and older will be vaccinated by the end of the month, with the vaccinated population reaching critical mass by April.
Abbott did state that he would consider reinstating coronavirus restrictions in the state if COVID test positivity rates went above 15% in areas of the state.
With a full year of arbitrary restrictions and questionable advice from supposed medical experts, Abbott’s decision to end restrictions in place for a year may serve as a dam-buster in finally doing away with lockdown policies. With Trump no longer in office, blue states may soon follow, having lost their excuse.
