Minneapolis Council Moves To Defund Police, Establish 'Holistic' Public Safety Force

The killing of George Floyd by police has sparked ongoing protests calling for the city to defund the Minneapolis Police Department. On Friday, the City Council took the first of many steps to make that a reality.


The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously approved a proposal to eliminate the city's police department, marking the first step toward establishing a new "holistic" approach to public safety.

The move follows more than a month of national outrage and protests against police brutality in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, a Black man who died after an officer pressed his knee into his neck for more than eight minutes.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

I don't know... I kinda like the Minneapolis Safety Force's New Look...

To hell with every single one of these bastards who are creating a moral permission slip for anarchists and other criminals and thugs to destroy our country as we know it.

You can tell they don't really believe this crap, because if they did it would be illegal for public officials to have any kind of private security.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

An' thus they voted to de-White themselves. Funny how the politicians who proposed this also voted to spend $63K on private security guards for themselves.

Well, they now have Deetroit-level infrastructure in place!  It can take years to get that "Beirut feel" to a place.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

Holistic? Does that mean everyone has to increase their dietary fiber intake?

I'm confused... :shrug:

There are no "Socialists", no "Progressives", only Communists, with every negative image that totalitarianism might muster, demanding fealty and conformity to their views, with a legacy of 150,000,000 dead and counting.

ALL major cities will decline.

Because they are all run by Democrats and suffer similar problems, some worse than others.

The next election will not be black and libs vs white, or East/West coast vs middle America.

It will be urban vs the rest of America.

Right. They are majority Democrat/Liberal/Leftist/Communist.
You can't have that level of stupidity elect that level of corruption and have anything good come of it.

Right. The battle lines for CWII are already drawn outside the City Limits.

I wonder if the council has asked Dirk Gently for help with the whole 'Holistic' thing?
