Going All-In: Minneapolis City Council
Considers Disbanding Entire Police Force…

Original Article

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.

SO this means I don’t need to buy targets any more, they will be trespassing on my property and if they move to steal or damage anything they get to visit Lucifer. Firearm, Crossbow, Machete, Bowie Knife, name your poison…If you criminals see the red dot on your chest, it’s TOO LATE…In Texas we have a ‘Castle Law’, we can shoot anyone on our property committing a crime…and, by the way, NO Texas Jury will convict! Libs, be very careful what you wish for!

Do away with the Minneapolis police department and by the time the exodus is over the city will consist of only criminals and Muslims.

So when the unruly mob of savage black youth rampage through The Mall of America vandalizing the stores, looting, and lighting fires while other beat down tourists and other shoppers there will be nobody to respond? Guess the ANITFA and BLM crowd wants to make sure that everyone is "equal" by keeping everyone down and living in fear under the control of roving gangs of self appointed equality monitors.

Wouldn't it be interesting (karma) if they go through with this and then city council member needs to summon the police. Truly, we are now getting a hint of how many stupid people have been elected to office. I've asked many times why someone elected to government suddenly becomes smarter than everyone and is so smart that they can tell everyone else what to and how to live. Obviously that is a canard and it is being exposed now all over the country.

Well, if those cops are so incompetent as to allow the rioters to take over their station, what use are they? Might as well disband them and save a few bucks for the politicians' pockets.

Then disband the entire criminal justice system in the city. Close the jails, courthouse, retire with full benefits all of the judge's, layoff the district attorney's office, fire all court-appointed attorneys, and shut down the bail bondsmen.

Minneapolis? How about any sanctuary city ? How about LA and San Fran openly stating that they are not going to prosecute theft under $1000 so grab 900 bucks worth and go back for more. How about NYC with no bail so burn down a business and walk. Don't try it in Texas, especially near my place or you won't walk.

First of all, this is just what the muslims want. Take over would be so easy. Sharia law would happen in a heartbeat. The mayor of Minn.most likely, as do other mayors around the country have 24 hour police protection. Here are two little "happenings" with mayors and police protection. One. the mayor of this city allowed his wife t have the police walk her little precious dog every morning. Her name was Sandy. Her husband name is dennis the menace kuchinich. For years the police had to walk this dog. Now the other, mayor of the same city, has police protection 24/7 So his grandson is involved in drugs. selling drugs. A picture of a little kid holding thousands of dollars, was taken. The kid is standing in the mayors front yard, and a police car is in the street behind the kid. Now, the kid may have nothing to do with the mayor and t it was a photo taken for the fun of it. You think there is one mayor who would care if the police were disbanned. I dont think so. But they best be careful, after all the police unions donate to dem campaigns. Not republicn, but democrat.

Do it!!! Get rid of the police and NEVER stop a person of color for a car infraction-EVER. Let them loot-everything free. See how long the store owners stick around. Also get rid of ambulances and fire engines. They will be called in fraudulently and trucks burned and employees killed, Leave them to themselves (as scripture says). Chaos will ensue quickly.

So, no police, no law enforcement means a mob can string up the Minneapolis city council to lampposts, burn their homes, and kill their kids, and nobody gets in trouble, right, provided it's in sync with the local community social structure? Which it clearly would be, given the current state of that community. Not encouraging it; just asking.

Go for it. But don’t come crying to the rest of the country when your city is a smoking rubble. We WON’T help you. I think this is being done as a lead up to the elections. Imagine standing in line to vote with crowds of thugs showing up with weapons and no one to stop them. The Black Panthers in Philly in 2008 were just a trial balloon. I believe that polling places are gun-free zones but we may need to ignore that on November3.

This was tried over 100 years ago in Boston, when the police voted to unionize, the city mayor refused to allow it, and the police walked off the job. After 9 days of rioting, arson, rampant crime and violence, the Massachusetts National Guard restored order, and Calvin Coolidge won on this election issue.

Get rid of the police force and Minneapolis will truly look like what it is quickly becoming..... another Somolia. I can see it now. Instead of police, Somali Warlords will have their men patrolling the streets eliminating any threats to their territorial power (otherwise know as "neighborhood watch"). Everyone will act surprised and cry racism when businesses flee and Minneapolis /St. Paul becomes just another Somolian African slum city (exactly like those that they came from) that people want to escape from to get away from the self inflicted poverty.

Last year the leftist and liberal Democrats were saying the when they take over in DC that they are going to abolish the Border Patrol, ICE the interior immigration enforcement agency, and the borderline itself, and now they want to abolish all the police inside the USA. If the leftists and liberal Democrats get their way, anyone in the world could come in the USA unimpeded and do as they wish. Even foreign military forces could covertly the cross the areas where the borderline used to be and then move into US cities without anyone knowing who they are and what they are doing in the USA. Common sense will tell you that would amount to the county committing national suicide. Based upon the history of the USA, I don’t believe that the vast “Silent Majority” of the American people who are sitting at home watching all the criminal rioting and it’s aftermath are going to eagerly vote for leftist and liberal Democrats and their anti-law enforcement and national suicidal policies and programs in the November election, and allow the country to go to hell in a hand basket.

Ah yes, eventually the age old leftist creepozoid mantra 'abolish the police.' So... to follow their 'logic' let's mandate the abolishment of all front door locks. Heck, let's go one step further and abolish the front door entirely. The pilot project for this 'new way forward' could be by mandating that the homes of all the rioters be the first homes with no front door. Then, all homes, apartments, hovels within sanctuary cities and states. We could take advantage of facial recognition technology to determine the identity of each one. Then, the Front Doors Don't Matter Task Force would be empowered to institute this groundbreaking initiative. We could even mandate that Soros and Bill Gates fund it.

Think of "Escape from New York". The most powerful group of thugs will be the law enforcement. There will be no due process or presumption of innocence. Anyone who can will get out which means there will be no crowd at Mall of America for the thugs to prey on as there will be no Mall of America. Food and other supplies will be non existent because no one in their right mind will be willing to deliver such items into the no go zone for fear of their own life. I say go for it. I would be fun to watch and perhaps teach a lesson to the rest of the country.

Understand that disbanding the police doesn't mean there would be no order at all. Like nature, authority abhors a vacuum. The Sharia Police would patrol the streets. They already have in Muzzie communities, and enforce Muhammad's laws and punishments. Check these MCP cars in NYC. https://www.google.com/search?q=muslims+patrol+NYC&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj9wczR4urpAhUjmeAKHYFdAGgQ_AUoAnoECBYQBA&biw=1440&bih=730 Indistinguishable from real police cars.

This is not spontaneous stupidity., This has been part of the Lweft's wish list for decades --- it's not "no police". It's "politicized" police. You can see that now, right, comrade? Calls for local police to be disbanded, replaced by SJW agents snapping up the new Socially-Sensitive People's Security jobs. Hasn't this always been the plan for this plandemic? It's quite out in the open. People, this has already been war-gamed. Twice. You can even read their plans online. http://thejewishvoice.com/2020/05/gates-foundations-event-201-rockefeller-foundations-lock-step-simulations-eerily-resemble-current-events/

The Police Unions contribute to the Marxist-Democrat party so defunding is unlikely. Los Angeles is not yet recovered from the 1992 racial riots to elect Bill Clinton. Minneapolis still has a long way ahead of them, baby.

Minneapolis has a population of 437,000 people. If the vote to disband the police force is approved, there will be a mass exodus of residents, and businesses leaving the city, and sadly, the home values will plummet. The Mall of America is actually in Bloomington, and unless they too become unhinged and just plain stupid, they can go on patrolling the crime that already occurs there. I'm in a first ring suburb of about 48,000 people, and I worry that our police force will be called upon to handle the crime that WILL occur, and it doesn't just stop at the border.

I live in the city limits of Minneapolis. One mile from the murder of George Floyd and 2.1 miles from the third precinct. This terrifies me. My house is going to be worthless and insurance will either be sky high or impossible to get. My very liberal neighbors are surprisingly silent on the issue.

I’m under contract to make a business trip to Minneapolis in September. If they disband their PD, I’m breaking the contract. Same for Chicago. It would be no great loss for me as I’m retiring at the end of the year anyway.

Frankly, this is a superb idea --- the city leaders, and by extension the voters who put them in office --- obviously reject the sowing and reaping principle. They've been coddling criminal and extremes elements for a while, so this is a logical, natural step forward. Plus, a lot of the Somali refugees (oh, sorry, immigrant population) would love to recreate their homeland there, if given full rein; I say, go for it. Human nature, Paul the apostle said, is stubborn and perverse without divine intervention, some more than others. The cops should quit/retire/move away and leave their charges to their own devices. Who knows what great outcomes there will be once Minneapolis becomes Dresden 1945.

The answer #75 is that they do not believe what they are witnessing. They have been taught ( yes, taught ) that the socialism / communism 'conversion' will be peaceful ( not a shot fired - yeah, right ) and result in utopia. What they have been told is NOT what is happening and that explains their 'doe in the headlights - what the **** happened / is happening' Watch and enjoy. This is FAR from 'over' in Minneapolis or elsewhere. If I were in your shoes, at a minimum I would start moving anything of value ( keepsakes, valuables ) somewhere far away and relatively safe. Bury them if that is your only option. I feel for you possibly losing all you have and wish you luck ( I sincerely mean that ) - but try saving what you can. IF this passes at some point in the not too distant future you can always retrieve what you have hidden.

2 of the 3 officers who have now been charged were on their 4th day of training with Derek Chauvin as their supervising officer. Chauvin had 18 complaints charged against him. One of those two trainees asked Chauvin to turn Floyd over. Now their lives are almost as ruined as Floyd's. Chauvin killed their hopes and dreams yet he was considered good enough by the Minneapolis PD to be a training officer. There is something inherently wrong with the culture of the MPD. It can't be fixed.

Mr B Hussein’s “fundamental transformation” They’ve been TEACHING it since 2008! The influence-peddlers in high schools...in colleges and universities ...on tv news...in Hollywood movies..in glossy magazines.. Import thousands of Somali’s and others full of hatred for capitalism and law and order and TEACH it to every gullible student. Insurrection and violence is “cool”... 12 years of civil unrest brewing to a boil.. They wait for the Alinsky moment.. Then they strike! Russia! Ukraine! Pandemic! Thug dies! They’ve got more plans for this summer and for election-time and they know we can’t stop them..we can’t even define the actual SOURCE (SOROS) of all this designed turmoil...”social distancing” my ass!

Here's how stupid this idea is: No police? absurd! You'll have mob rule, the most ruthless, the most violent, the most depraved will rise to the top. They will not even have to pretend to follow guidelines, laws, rules of conduct, or be accountable to ANYONE. Might is right! will be their motto. Equal justice under the law? HA! equally terrified.

I cannot stand more virtue signaling - Amazon, Apple, and a ton of kids on FB screaming how they hate their families b/c of "white privilege" - parents using their own children to push for hatred, violence. Tribal conflict? Just about done here. Ready to stay out in country house, in mountains. Spring water, gardens. Just done w this "society" that is collapsing so quickly you can hardly keep up. Tired of being accused of white privilege. My husband - his grandfather is African black who came to Puerto Rico by way of his own family being sold by other African blacks to the Spaniards many ions ago. So tired of this - never saw color til now. I see character - the lack of it. Horrific societal implications coming. No adults in charge, our education system in shambles. Look at the books on Amazon now. The movies they place up in first row. Not taking the bait, sorry. Amazon is almost gone from this house...give it about 5 more days for last delivery and our accounts are deleted. Phones and plans changing. So much work to do.

The black-clothed Antifa activists who are leading the anti-police riots are mostly the discarded, angry college-grade workforce of an increasingly high-tech, globalized economy, say a variety of experts and millennials. Colleges are producing many “graduates who’ve absorbed a worldview that trains them for “metropolitan elite” job types that turn out to be far scarcer than the graduates competing for them,”(Snip) The result is a frustrated would-be middle class, treading water in what the writer Venkatesh Rao has called ‘premium mediocre’ lifestyles, a rented simulacrum of a genuinely prosperous existence designed to signal preparedness for the day when, by luck or application, they make it into the dwindling numbers

“Progressive” ideology always rests on a conviction that the current “regressive” system is comprehensively unjust and must be destroyed by exploiting its weaknesses. The most famous proponent of such tactics in recent years has been the late Saul Alinksy, the intellectual godfather of the modern Democrat Party, but former Soviet journalist and KGB informant Yuri Bezmenov laid out an even more concise strategy for subversion(Snip) Alinksy’s seminal book specified 13 Rules for Radicals, but Bezmenov had only four “stages of ideological subversion,” and they will sound very familiar to anyone following the current wave of left-wing riots, or the politicized final stages of the coronavirus panic before it: Demoralization, Destabilization, Crisis, and

The official BlackLivesMatter DC chapter recently tweeted their disappointment in response to a mural stating “Black Lives Matter” painted on the street in front of the White House calling it “counter organizing” to their demands. “This is performative and a distraction from [Mayor Muriel Bowser’s] active counter organizing to our demands to decrease the police budget and invest in the community.

A former Obama administration intelligence official who worked in both the Departments of State and Defense has guaranteed bail for a human rights lawyer accused of firebombing a police vehicle in New York City. The former official, Salmah Rizvi, told a judge the alleged firebomber is her "best friend." Rizvi, now an attorney at the D.C.-based law firm Ropes & Gray, helped secure the release of fellow lawyer Urooj Rahman by agreeing to be a suretor for her bail. That means Rizvi is liable for the full cost of the $250,000 bail if Rahman fails to obey the court's orders.

Once you understand the larger objectives, everything becomes a sequence of predictable events. The term “community policing” has been used for several years by groups advocating for radical changes to law enforcement; however, behind the innocuous phrase is really a much more serious agenda. If each community can determine the enforcement of law, then essentially all communities can eliminate the underlying law itself. Remove local enforcement of law and the local community can independently assemble a social structure separate from all other binding contracts that frame a larger societal compact.

The Minneapolis mayor is asking for federal help cleaning up and rebuilding his city after rioters caused at least $55 million worth of damage through looting, burning, and defacing public and private property.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and the state’s congressional delegation are also pushing the Trump administration and Congress for funding.
