NEW: The president of the Minneapolis City Council says the city’s Police Dept. will be dismantled and replaced with a “transformative new model of public safety.”— Alex Salvi (@alexsalvinews) June 5, 2020
The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform.— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) June 5, 2020
It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.
Thank you to @MplsWard3 for your leadership on this! https://t.co/AQfHM5M6eR
If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?— Lisa Bender (@lisabendermpls) June 3, 2020
I mean this quite sincerely & seriously: just look at recent conversations about City-funded neighborhood organizations to understand how explicitly we would have to work to establish alternative systems that do not replicate the same problems. White ppl need to show up for this.— Lisa Bender (@lisabendermpls) June 3, 2020
How quickly will newly established neighborhood watch groups devolve into the kind of rhetoric that has been on Next Door in recent years? (I hear, I don’t go on that thing).— Lisa Bender (@lisabendermpls) June 3, 2020
And by show up I mean listen, learn, & ask these questions, listen to POCI neighbors, sincerely listen to and understand that folks who live in high crime nhood have not only trauma but a variety of opinions and positions on public safety & have long created community solutions.— Lisa Bender (@lisabendermpls) June 3, 2020
I truly appreciate the thoughtful responses! My colleague @CunninghamMPLS, chair of our PECE committee, has been leading on laying the groundwork for transformational change. A lot of the things ppl are talking about are extensions: https://t.co/fNWpjlFqAj https://t.co/uROoYmflD0— Lisa Bender (@lisabendermpls) June 3, 2020
Political grandstanding. https://t.co/CNvzOd0f8m— Mike (@FuctupMike) June 5, 2020
If you are in Minneapolis, you better get out now. It has been abandoned to the criminals and is about to become the next Detroit. The weak and likely the last White mayor of Minneapolis who blamed all the violence on “white supremacists” is now down on his knees crying.
Note: Tucker Carlson had a monologue last night about it. While I agree with the monologue, it doesn’t change the fact that yet another American city has been abandoned to black mobs which is going to make refugees out of its White population. See also Birmingham.
