Minneapolis Unanimously Votes to Stop Defunding the Police and Goes on Massive Spending Spree to Hire More Cops

Remember when Minneapolis voted to defund the police after the George Floyd riots? The backlash led to 200 police officers leaving the force and the city council voting to defund the police department and transition to a Department of Public Safety.

In the months that followed that vote, the city devolved into a chaos. In 2020, crime in Minneapolis soared. There were 532 gunshot victims, more than double over the previous year. Carjacking cases soared to 331 percent over the previous year, while violent crimes topped 5,100, compared to just over 4,000 for the same period in 2019, according to city statistics.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported, “In the months since then, some residents have begged city leaders to hire additional officers, saying they’re waiting longer for responses to emergency calls amid a dramatic uptick in violent crime.” The situation has led to a need to increase funding toward new police hires rather than replacing law enforcement with public safety officers.

 

The news was noted by Texas Governor Greg Abbott as well. He tweeted, “Looks like defunding police didn’t go well in Minneapolis. Now they’re spending $6.4M to recruit more police officers. It won’t go well in Texas either. That’s why I want legislation preventing cities from defunding police.”

Texas Governor Abbott wasn’t the only one who noticed the Minnesota city leaders waiving of the white flag of defeat. Watch this interview by Fox News with a former NYPD leader who has a lot to say about the Democrats scam on the city that led to complete chaos in the community.

    1. Both are wrong. Get rid of them and Antifa. Get rid of the entire Democratic Party. You see now what is happening to our country with them in power.

      1. Kenneth, What you say is true. Afraid our goose is cooked. No turning back. Worst is yet to come.Great Country
        no longer.

      2. People knew whst the demonRats had planned on doing, but the voted for biden anyway. They must be just like the democratic party ir just don’t care foe this country.

  1. Let get to the truth! BLM is no different than the KKK OF the 1930-60! Just they think alike! Neither have an idea they are both DUMB PEOPLE BEING USE BY THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND MEDIA! VIOLENCE NEVER SOLVED ANYTHING! NEITHER DOES STUPIDITY! THE ONLY DIFFERENT BETWEEN THESE TWO GROUPS IS BLM CAN’T EVEN TALK LIKE THEY GOT COMMON SENSE! YELLING LOUD IS A SIGN OF WEAKNESS!

  2. Can any of these BLM leader tell me why should white people pay for REPARATIONS? I will wait! But I bet they can’t even prove it! Let start from the beginning! NONE OF THEM WERE LIVING BACK THEN! DON’T EVEN KNOW THE TRUTH! JUST LIES PASSING DOWN FROM OTHER WHO DIDN’T KNOW THE TRUTH! Do your own research on it! It will lead you BACK TO AFRICA! Here were it all STARTED! Go there and demand REPARATIONS! BUT. I promise you won’t come back! First of all SLAVE TRADING IS STILL GOING ON IN AFRICA! Tribe leader sell those youth kids to MUSLIMS BROTHERHOOD! KILL THE ELDERLY PEOPLE! So which party was slave owner during the 1700-1800 in AMERICA? There only was ONE! CALL DEMOCRAT PARTY! Today NOBODY IN AMERICA OWN SLAVE! BUT GANG MEMBER!

      1. Yes and backed by the Dems. Also incited the mostly peaceful protest at the Capital. But they didn’t get blamed. Protected ny the Dems and the FBI.

    1. That is right on. It seems that no one of color wants to put the blame on where it all started. Africans selling their own people. Had they not of done that is it possible that there would have not been black slavery in the new world. Remember the British were the first buyers of slaves. Why are they not being asked to pay. Even the Chinese people ended up in labor camps for the rail road. Why aren’t we doing something about that.

    2. Of necessity, this will be very long; I am now 82, I grew into my early teens in Philadelphia, Pa. then we moved south to Florida in the 1950s. I was amazed at the difference I immediately saw in the treatment of blacks in the south versus the treatment they received in the north! There’s much more to the so-called slave story than is being published by the slime-stream media and this includes all printed media including everything from newspapers to books and magazines etc.!

      Something I learned a long time ago is; only the winners of a war get to write the history of that war and because of this, they actually determine what beliefs will be proclaimed and defended in the future! Anything contrary to what the winners wrote often results in persecution and laws protecting the accepted history and condemning the truth and this has been going on for ages now! If the so-called written history is truth, it does not need laws and more lies to defend it, only lies need protection and support. Tell one lie and it needs the protection of both laws and ten more lies, this expands exponentially as more lies are manufactured to defend and protect former lies!!!!

      To begin with if not all of the slave markets, at least the largest ones were in the North and one of the biggest was in Washington D.C. where black slaves were auctioned off to the highest bidder, many of the leaders of government at the time had to walk past it (the very active Washington D.C. slave market) to get to their work areas! In August 1619, the first English North American slave ship landed in Jamestown, Virginia (in the north not the south) and this one so-called reporter for the New York Times (black female) claims was the true beginning of America. How man lies will have to be manufactured in academia to defend this lie???? America did not invent slavery as academia teaches!

      The so-called slave owners (whites) in the south treated all their slaves like family members and that is partially why many refused to leave the plantations owned by whites when they were supposed to have been freed (other reasons were, free medical care, free housing, free clothing and food and receiving humane care in their old age)! Also, 25% of the free blacks in the south owned slaves and they were viciously cruel while less than 5% of the whites had slaves and, in virtually all cases (blacks in the south could take whites to court for cruelty etc.), the blacks were treated better than the white indentured servants (slaves) because they were of more value, they cost so much more $$ to replace. In the north where slavery actually began, the slaves were very cruelty treated.

      Abe Lincoln was the very first big government President, he stated numerous times that he had no authority to free slaves yet, when the North was losing, he instituted the first draft and claimed the war was to free slaves. The truth is, the war was to keep the south from leaving the union and that would have cost the north much $$ because the south would no longer pay the north’s imposed taxes etc. plus, the factories up north relied on the south for much of their basic materials. Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation only freed slaves in areas in the south where the Union Army was in control, not a single slave in the north was freed!

      I could say much more about President Lincoln canceling Habeas Corpus and imprisoning (without a trial) everyone that disagreed with him and his policies but, it would be better for y’all to read up on true history, not this trash being spoon fed to our children by the Communistic Government run and controlled School system. A book I would recommend is “Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery Is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!” Written by Lochlainn Seabrook (Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal Winner, the foreword for the 1,016 page book was written by a black female professor, Barbara G. Marshal, B.A., M.Ed.) I doubt you can find the book on Amazon but, go to the webpage of American Free Press, there it and other valuable books of truth can be purchased.

      Nuff Said!!!!

  3. Fuck them. First of all I would join that Police force for anything. Next time some controversy happens. These ass holes will pull this again.. Let them suffer. They wanted to do this. Now live the same dream. Americans do these stupid sort of things, and then think there aren’t any consequences.

  4. What did the STUPID city council was going to happen when they voted to defund the POLICE Dept? Were they all stupid the city council members. Evidently the city council members could not think what would happen. And to lose 200 police officers because of their stupid decision. Now they have to spend more money to hire new police officers. They should try and get those officers who left to come back, if they still want to come back. And what about the regular people who kept yelling Defund the Police. Even those people could not think what was going to happen to their city. Serves them right.

    1. The REAL reason they are now hiring back police is because NO women will shop or stay in Minneapolis because it is not safe. I will never go downtown again. people are buying up retirement homes in small towns up north and working all week in MPLS and spending their weekends up north in towns they know are safe.
      Businesses in MPLS are complaining.
      The ENTIRE MPLS city council has been Democrats for over 40 years and the same with the mayor. One party rule. No one to blame but the Democrat party.
      Wait until the trial of the so called Georg killer and the results of the autopsy are revealed….drug overdose.

  5. KKK has never had a goal of destroying the US. That is incorrect. Their hatred is focused on black people. BLM hates everyone else and would happily burn the nation’s cities to ashes. Different agendas. Both share hatred, but the comparison ends there.

  6. For the author who wrote this article. What does “massive” mean. Is your intent here to sway the reader to your point of view? I did not waste my time reading what obviously will be a bias report. Don’t expect many to read this. How about this title. “City Council will fund its police department”. This heading of the article deserves reading about what happened. It leaves the reader in suspense. Try that tactic next time and keep your personal comments to your self.

  7. For sure remember blm, antifa and kkk are all properties of the demorat party. Let Minneapolis stew in their own hate.

  8. They shouldn’t be allowed to hire police. They should be made to work through their well thought out plan. I mean how dumb are Americans?
    The message is; it’s not the criminal it’s the Police!
    Makes perfect sense if you had a learning disability.
    I was watching the whole time an residents didn’t seem to mind when the very people who voted to defund Police hired private security that the tax payers of Minneapolis paid for……
    How stupid are they?
    I just wish all the people that want to make this country like England , Canada, etc would just move there. It would be a simpler plan…..

  9. if all the small business owners in MN and their families and their employees and their families did NOT vote for ANY Democrats ever again the state would go back on track like when it was a Republican state and prosperous.

  10. The damage done in Minneapolis may be irreparable…… Like Watts in LA and look at what happened to Detroit. It’ll probably be like the process evolving in other large cities where they have loosely connected ‘islands’ of prosperity strewn amidst a sea of urban blight. The Twin Cities already have a Little Mogadishu. The joys of Progressive policies in action!

  11. This is too ridiculous. We are all squatters except for the Indians. Reparations is a joke. I hope the Indians get in this shit show and sue everyone. While everyone is busy acting liking idiots the Chinese and the Russians are grinning ear to ear while they patiently wait to take over. Stupid knows no limits. It is time for Americans to focus all of their energy on Americans and this democracy. We are our own biggest enemy. God and country can save us. Everything else is utter idiocy.

  12. It was the result of allowing the cart to pull the horse, obviously in incorrect action that anyone with a functioning brain could have advised, however, when minds are closed input remains improbable and we have observed the results of ignorance!
    I personally find it hard to comprehend the thought process of those who appear to not comprehend simple reality and facts but cling to ideology for their actions. History is rife with examples and consequences of various actions, yet some continue to make the same mistakes over and over again appearing to expect a different result!
    Sorry to inform them, the results will be the same as they have always been for centuries!

    We are currently in a situation where the alleged leadership of the country has the tendency to ignore the reality of history and is in the process of repeating errors which will have the known results!

  13. Sure, hire these policemen and women BACK . . . if they’ll COME back! I wouldn’t – EVER. Minneapolis GOT what they DESERVED. These beautiful people in UNIFORM deserve BETTER. One Enlightened Patriot. team Trump and His Allies 2020 – MAGA (WE’RE NOT going away!).

    1. I would NEVER go back…most of those folks have moved onto better PD’s or to jobs where they are respected.
