Minnesota. The North Star state. Home of the liberal Democrat Muslim queen, Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Minnesota has not shown us much to be proud of as of late. This run amuck state has seen gun-wielding patriots willing to fight in efforts at regaining the freedoms they’ve been denied.
“Black Lives Matter” protesters, with the assistance of ANTIFA and Boogaloo, have all but annihilated Minneapolis with their violent and destructive behavior. But according to little Miss Omar, everything in Minnesota is copasetic. They got this.
Omar believes the only way to resolve Minnesota’s current issues is by defunding the state’s police departments, thereby creating less of a law enforcement presence. It’s the cops who are responsible for Minneapolis’s crime-ridden streets. If they weren’t around none of that stuff would happen.
During her recent appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Omar spit these words out, “A new way forward can’t be put in place if we have a department that is having a crisis of credibility if we have a department that’s led by a chief who’s suited for racism if we have a department that hasn’t solved half of the homicides. And so, you can’t really form a department that is rotten to the root. What you can do is rebuild.”
As if losing one’s mind is contagious, Minneapolis City Council members agree with Omar. They’ve constructed a virtually veto-proof plan to kick their police force to the curb, and they are aggressively pursuing it.
Omar told host Jack Tapper, “This is our opportunity, you know, as a city, to come together and have the conversation of what public safety looks like, who enforces the most dangerous crimes that take place in our community,” she said. “And just like San Francisco did, right now, they’re moving toward a process where there is a separation of the kind of crimes that solicit the help of, you know, officers, and the kind of crimes that we should have someone else respond to.”
Let’s analyze the second sentence. So if Omar and the City Council have their ways, crimes in action should initially be called into a newly formed police department. The information will be compiled. It will then be the responsibility of the police emergency operator to determine which department to properly forward the request for assistance.
Should they send real cops or would an unarmed psychiatrist or social worker perhaps be better? By the time they figure it out, the crime will have been committed, the criminal would have escaped, and there may even be a few dead bodies lying around.
“No one is saying that the community is not going to be kept safe. No one is saying crimes will not be investigated. No one is saying that we are not going to have a proper response when community members are in danger,” Omar elaborated. “What we are saying is the current infrastructure that exists as policing in our city should not exist anymore and we can’t go about creating a different process with the same infrastructure in place.”
Herein lies the problem. If the cops of the Minneapolis Police Department are fired and replaced by a kinder gentler conglomeration of misfits with specialties in particular areas other than law enforcement, criminals will be moving there.
This would also mean that every new officer hired to wear the badge as a certified police officer, would be a rookie with zero experience. And the questions remain. Would they be issued any weapons? Would they be allowed to defend themselves with force if necessary? Or will they be just for show?
It’s been said that the Minneapolis Police Department has a long history of brutality and racism, but isn’t this being said about every department nationwide? And who are the ones claiming this? Surely not Minneapolis’s everyday citizens or the citizens of every other major city who are thankful for the protection.
The defunding cry is coming from the mouths of anarchists, criminals, and the politicians who are caving in to their unreasonable demands. May we present: Ilmar Ohan and her Democrat cohorts.
