What Could End Up Happening With Minneapolis Police By The End Of The Year Should Have Residents Extremely Worried

(Tea Party 247) – Remember a few months back when the Minneapolis city council voted to disband the police department and replace cops with mental health workers, which is, of course, the worst idea in the history of bad ideas? Well, it seems their master plan has hit a brick wall as the Minneapolis Charter Commission voted 10-5 to keep the issue off the ballot in November.

The good news is this means police officers won’t be booted from the streets this year. The bad news, however, is there won’t be a whole lot of cops available to go out and patrol the streets in the coming months.

You can’t slash budgets and then think you’re going to have enough protection to keep the streets safe. And contrary to what liberals think, no criminal is going to be “talked down” by some lowly psychologist. These are hardened criminals. Many of them have violent records. Things are not going to go well if this plan continues forward.

Here’s more on this frightening possibility via Hot Air:

Last month the Washington Post reported that as many as 150 officers were planning to file disability claims saying they had PTSD from their time on the streets in the wake of the killing of George Floyd. Last week the Star Tribune reported that, unofficially as many as a third of the entire force could be gone by the end of the year:

Over the past two months, 40 cops have resigned, been fired or are in the process of leaving the force, and another 75 have taken a medical leave for post-traumatic stress disorder they say was caused by the riots that followed Floyd’s death. Dozens more are expected to file for leave in the coming months.

MPD officials not authorized to speak publicly estimate the department, which is budgeted for 888 officers this year, could lose as much as a third of its workforce by the end of the year.

The shortages highlight the challenge facing the city’s beleaguered police force as it faces calls for its defunding, or even abolishment.

Residents say that police are taking longer to respond to emergency calls, even as homicides, shootings and robberies have all increased by double digits from last year.

Thanks to the push to slash budgets, which Democrats in leadership positions in the city immediately caved to after George Floyd’s death, there’s just no way the city can restaff the officers they’ve lost already.

The decreased staffing levels among the MPD’s five precincts is a dilemma for the department, as it grapples with COVID-related budget cuts and sinking officer morale. For instance, a recent Monday night found just six officers patrolling the 14.5 square miles of the Third Precinct, according to MPD officials…

The deployment picture has worsened as the department tries to dig itself out of the budgetary hole it’s been in since the COVID-19 pandemic struck. While a recent class of recruits hit the streets last month, another class that was scheduled to start training in August has been canceled. And with a citywide hiring freeze in effect until at least the end of the year, there are no replacements in sight.

For every single police officer who leaves or is let go, the workload for those who remain increases exponentially, which places an unfair burden on those who have been able to stick around. What’s worse, there’s going to be more cuts in the future.

Many local residents are worried about how this is going to impact their neighborhoods and whether or not the lack of police presence will increase violence where they live.

Additionally, the crime and lack of sufficient policing, on top of the problems created by the coronavirus, has made downtown Minneapolis an unattractive place to try to run a business. So many businesses are now thinking about moving out.

A new survey by the Downtown Council shows 45 business owners say they are considering leaving downtown – citing the lack of people working or socializing downtown – and the idea that the police department could be dismantled.

Though they won’t say which businesses are considering pulling out of downtown, the council says one of the businesses employs 600 people.

This was always a horrible idea. It’s proof that liberals like those involved in the Black Lives Matter movement do not think through the solutions they propose to the problems they claim black people face.

Either that or they are working on behalf of the Democratic Party to purposefully sow chaos and increase crime so as to justify leftist policy implementation that will promise security in exchange for liberty.

It’s bogus regardless.

  8. What did the libtards think was going to happen. No business is going to stay where they pay tax’s and receive only riots and no police protection. Essentially when the libtards cave to BLM and Antifa TERRORISM the end result is most of your tax base leaves. Then the city starts to look like a 4th world hovel.

  9. The Bible says the whole world lies in wickedness and no good comes out of that. The wicked people, aka, all of us, need to repent and turn away from our wickedness an follow Jesus. But the majority WILL NOT REPENT and much less turn from their wicked ways, so, and the slide will continue. God help us who are repented, and turned away from wicked ways, and it’s by the few who are righteous that life continues, ALL OF YOU WHO DONT REPENT, you’re gonna DIE in your sins soon, unless you repent and turn to Jesus. I’m praying for those who are doing this. One day all will be judged, then no mercy will be for those who didn’t repent and turned not away from their sin. Quit lying to yourselves.

    • Very well put. A little reality never hurts. Also, remember, Forgive them as they know not what they do.

  10. That’s what an AR-15 is for. Either that CRIMINAL would be SMART ENOUGH to BACK DOWN, or will be STUPID enough to wind up “pushing daisies”. That’s all these ANIMALS know . . . a SHOW of force. Let’s USE it! One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  11. BLM and the Democrats have been working in tandem to push the big lie of systemic racism. They throw it out without evidence. Sure, there are vestiges of racism but it is not systemic. Name one system or institution that is racist. You can’t. They are living in the Jim Crow past. In fact, society has been bending over backwards to accommodate blacks at every institutional level.

    • If you look at history you will see that Radicals of the 60’s and 70’s you would see that they are now connected to the Democrat Party, some are working in Government, Teaching in the Universities, and Global Charities. Twenty years from now will the members of BLM and Antifa be in the same positions? Do we need to take precautions to prevent this from happening?

  12. These people have nobody to blame but themselves. They have elected politicians to office that have no morals and are very leftist in their beliefs. Also, we see more and more that people hate the Bible and have allowed it to be burned and made fun of. This will result in chaos and destruction. All this is clearly predicted in the Scriptures if one will read them and have man and churches who will stand for it you can have peace. These people who think that socialism is the answer have to realize that there has never has been a country that practiced it and been successful in having happy and free people.
    I hope for and pray for our nation. NO one gets out alive.

    • This should all be a testament to the other dim wit enclaves. These dim wits need to be removed from office and not even being given a dog catcher job in the future. They are liars, cheats, and thieves and their own actions give them away. They say one thing and then do whatever the Communist NWO beehive lunatic asylum called the DNC advises and ignore any promises made to get that CONTROL and be in charge in all those places currently obviously dim wit enclaves of lawless dictators.

      Luckily you will be able to vote them out in a couple of months or just start those recall steps and petitions if they are not up for reelection. But in November 2020 you can change the mix at every level. Appeal to the feds to help in mass if you fail to unelect the scum because they do commit voter fraud. Don’t let them destroy your homes and lives!!!

  13. It’s also interesting that the Liberals decided that they need to buy guns after all and are P.O.’d that they are being hampered by the laws that ***they*** passed. Well, guess what: IF the lawmakers and their Liberal constituents really, really, ***really*** want to cut down violent crime – and mean it – they will get rid of all the anti-gun laws that are on the books now. After all, every time a new gun restriction law is passed, violent crime GOES UP because the law creates another class of ***easy prey*** a k a easy pickings.

  15. Sheep being lead to the slaughter. Need to vote out of office or recall all the public officials involved. From the Governor on down. Or better yet a class action suit to sue all involved by all the people hurt or adversely effected. When you take their money away, you’ll get their attention real quick. Change will come even faster back to normal if not even better than before.

  16. As always, the liberals and the Democrats couldn’t care less about how much damage and chaos they cause, how many people are put in dangers path, nor how many people are forced out of their living, so long as they have the total and complete control in their communistic attitudes!
