She convinced everyone this was for the greater good.
But she never expected this result.
Now, lhan Omar’s plan fell through for this humiliating defeat.
Many people are rightly concerned about the ever growing wave of violence bringing destruction across the major cities of America.
These violent riots have caused millions in property damage, have resulted in numerous deaths, and have shown no signs of stopping.
When the protests started back in May, the Democrats backed the peaceful demonstrations all the way.
However, now that these protests have morphed into dangerous riots, it took the Democrats an embarrassingly long time to separate themselves from the destruction.
In fact, many Democrats continued to support the destruction, calling it “the people’s right” to destroy property and end lives.
But things have taken a new twist.
Minneapolis, the center of the violence, the place this whole movement started, is changing their previous stance.
They once touted themselves as the progressive mecca of change, claiming they would eliminate the police force entirely.
But they had no solid plan in place to accomplish this goal.
So – as predicted – things spiraled wildly out of control.
Recently, the Minneapolis council got together for a two hour “study session” to discuss police reform.
MPR News reported that “council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, and shootings.”
Minneapolis has fallen into complete chaos and there is no one to stop it.
The statistics show just how insane the situation has become.
MPR News reported:
“The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than were slain in all of last year. Property crimes, like burglaries and auto thefts, are also up. Incidents of arson have increased 55 percent over the total at this point in 2019.”
People are looting and stealing in broad daylight with no concern.
Minneapolis was the first to cry “defund the police” and now they are reaping what they have sown.
Jamal Osman, a recently elected council member, expressed concern and confusion when discussing how calls for police help are not being answered.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’? That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.”
Perhaps they would be able to rely on the MPD if the entire department was no longer defunded, demonized, and insulted at every turn.
The council destroyed the backbone of the police force and then wonders why it is not there to respond to emergencies.
This hypocritical stance is shared by many of the Democrat leaders of various cities that are dissolving into riots and chaos.
They are now seeing that the answer is not to criminalize the police, but to take the time to properly reform the system.
They can no longer cover the problem with a band-aid, they must face the consequences of their actions head on.
