“Where are the police?” Minneapolis City Council complains to police chief about surge in crime … after they voted to defund and abolish the police! https://t.co/6QoCMwL5wm pic.twitter.com/VNueFdUawh
As more people have been murdered in the city through the first nine months of 2020 than in all of 2019, the patchouli-drenched members of the Minneapolis City Council held a virtual meeting Tuesday with Police Chief Medaria Arradondo and spent two hours complaining to him about the skyrocketing crime and insufficient, you know, policing.
“My constituents are looking at me like, ‘What is the city doing?’ MPD is not showing up. When they get here, [officers] say, ‘Oh, well, we’re just running from call to call, so we can’t really do anything.'”
City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins (who is a dude who identifies as a woman) asked Arradondo:
“The level of gun violence, drug dealing, intimidation, extortion, people are having to pay to get out of their alleys. Are we doing anything to be engaged and resolve these problems?”
