The meeting was slated as a Minneapolis City Council study session on police reform. But for much of the two-hour meeting, 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. And they asked Arradondo what the department is doing about it.

#3, love what you did there. Very clever. These idiots on the city council want it both ways. They want their own rear ends protected. They do not care about the citizens they represent.

A lot have retired or moved to other places. The rest got the message from the city council, which was "arresting people is no longer permitted ". Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. ZERO sympathy.

Unbelievable. Democrats get rid of the police and then when the crime rate soars they wonder where the police are.

Not really all that long ago, Detroit was a beautiful and prosperous city. People tend to think their material culture will always just "be there." But it's more fragile than meets the eye. Do we need more examples? People lose the sense of civic pride and responsibility. Rudy Giuliani was prescient when he enforced the Broken Windows theory and enforced the laws against all kinds and extents of vandalism. Not even half a century later, NYC is sliding toward the precipice. Truly puzzling is the idea that adults, educated people, could not imagine (since everyone is saying --au current-- re-imagine this and that) the consequences of eliminating the civil servants charged with enforcing the laws, which the people's legislators wrote, in order to provide order, peace and safety. pathetic and stupid

Police are implementing MBA policy. That's, Management By Avoidance. Why risk getting arrested and sued for doing their job? The Mayor and the City Council Members are stuck on STUPID, but not the police.

It’s simple. When you prosecute and demonize cops who do their job you have to expect police to reduce their efforts and the risks they take. George Floyd died of a heart attack caused by a drug overdose. The police didn’t do anything wrong. The proof is in the autopsy, yet 4 officers are fired and on trial. The Democratic politicians are using Floyd’s death for political purposes and the cops are screwed. They no it and that’s why they are avoiding risks.

Poster 14: you will never hear the names of the actual Democrat Generals behind the scenes, from a liberal mouthpiece. Look at what happened to Gingrich. He spoke a truth, he go muzzled. And Soros is about the level of a one or two star general. He's in the field, and making local strategy, but the real big wigs are out of sight. If anything blows up in their face, they don't want it coming back on them.

President Trump hit at Joe Biden’s record on trade during his speech at the Republican National Convention, accusing him of sending working class jobs overseas to China while building his political career on the support of blue collar workers. “For forty-seven years, Joe Biden took the donations of blue collar workers, gave them hugs and even kisses,” Trump said, to laughter from the crowd assembled on the front lawn of the White House. Biden “told them he felt their pain, then voted to send their jobs to China.”

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Seventy-four people are now facing federal charges related to protests that have rocked Portland, Oregon, for three months since George Floyd was killed. The misdemeanor and felony charges include assaults on federal officers, arson and damaging federal property. Billy Williams, the U.S. attorney for Oregon, said in a statement Thursday that “violent agitators” had “hijacked” the First Amendment. Portland has been gripped by nightly protests since the police killing of Floyd in Minneapolis.

Peggy Noonan joined the crowd turning on George W. Bush in what I thought was (in Noonan’s case) a grossly unfair manner in 2008. It wasn’t just unfair, it was cowardly. I wrote critically about one of Noonan’s weekly Wall Street Journal columns in which she identified with the public disapproval of Bush that April in “Season of the witch.” Having turned on George W. Bush, Noonan moved on to support the election of Barack Obama later that year. Noonan all but endorsed Obama in her 2008 column “Obama and the runaway train.”

Scott’s post about Peggy Noonan, and in particular her writing about Kamala Harris, reminded me of Noonan’s treatment of another candidate for Vice President, Sarah Palin. Noonan’s utterances about Palin in 2008, which I described here, fit well within the unfortunate pattern Scott describes. Noonan’s first published take on Palin was basically the Republican Party line at the time —that the nominee represents “a real and present danger to the American left” which therefore needs to “kill” her. That’s what she wrote in the Wall Street Journal. But it wasn’t what she believed. How do we know?

It’s hard to know what’s worse — the dying or the lying. More than 32,000 New Yorkers have died from the coronavirus, a toll higher than any other state. New York also ranks second to the worst out of all 50 states, in deaths per million residents. Only New Jersey did worse. You wouldn’t know it, listening to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who brags that his administration “tamed the beast.” Or the media that praise him and chide states with much, much lower death rates.

A horrific shootout outside a funeral home on Chicago's South Side Tuesday night wounded at least 14 people, police said, in the latest chapter of violence gripping the big city. "All we saw was just bodies laying everywhere," witness Arnita Gerder told WMAQ. "Shot up everywhere, all over. Legs, stomach, back, all over the place. We thought it was a war out here." A vehicle was traveling on 79th Street when people inside opened fire on funeral attendees, the Chicago Police Department's First Deputy Superintendent Eric Carter said during a news briefing. The attendees exchanged gunfire with the vehicle, which sped off before crashing a short distance later.

Pennsylvania’s highest court gave the Democratic Party a series of victories Thursday, including one allowing repairs to glitches and gray areas in the battleground state’s fledgling mail-in voting law and another that kicked the Green Party’s presidential candidate off the November ballot. The state Supreme Court, which has a 5-2 Democratic majority, granted the Democratic Party’s request to order a three-day extension of Pennsylvania’s Election Day deadline to count mailed-in ballots. And it ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.

This may only qualify as one of those “local news stories” for most of the media, but it could provide a chilling look at the future of law enforcement in America. A couple of weeks ago, some problems arose at an apartment complex in Aurora, Colorado. One of the residents had unwisely invited Robert Thompson, 47, to stay at the apartment he shared with his girlfriend. He did this despite Thompson having a lengthy rap sheet and a history of criminal behavior. True to form, Thompson quickly began causing trouble of an alarming kind, including exposing himself to some young girls, throwing a rock through someone’s window

But probably not in the way they meant to.

But sooner or later, probably sooner, the Dem elite is going to try to put him out to pasture. How could they pull it off? And can they? Let’s see…
