The following article, Minneapolis Police Department to Be Dismantled, Says Ilhan Omar & City Council Member, was first published on Flag And Cross.
The worst thing that can happen right now is for liberal politicians to go after every single police department over the actions of one officer. But they’re going to do it anyway.
In Los Angeles, upwards of $150 million may soon be diverted from the LAPD.
In Minneapolis, it could get even wilder.
From New York Post:
Members of the Minneapolis City Council pledged to “dismantle” the city’s police department in the wake of worldwide protests over the killing of George Floyd.
Council President Lisa Bender joined several other members in promises to drastically change how public safety is upheld in the city.
Yes. We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety. https://t.co/FCfjoPy64k

Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) commented, too…
The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform.
It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Three Los Angeles City Council members introduced legislation on Wednesday that would reduce funding for the Los Angeles Police Department and shift the funds to other services. The proposal comes amid another day of protests that drew thousands in Los Angeles.
The legislation would cut between $100 million and $150 million in funding from the LAPD’s 2020-21 budget.
Here’s more riot randomness, for ya…
Mayor de Blasio said he was ‘proud’ of his daughter after she was arrested at a protest where fires were being set
Is he also proud of his daughter’s “F*CK CAPITALISM” tattoo?

"I understand what my obligation is to this uniform, but I can’t compromise my humanity." Black officers feel the pain of George Floyd's death while weighing their duty to keep peace during protests. https://t.co/thuWLkcJ9w

Where was the social justice for all the business owners
Who’s lives were destroyed by the shutdown?
They were ridiculed as evil
But now it’s okay to protest?
