A City Council member told Fox News that members have been told not to advocate for or against the charter amendment in their official capacities.

The group's ballot measure proposal would replace the city's police department with a public safety department including licensed police officers, but it does not outline a detailed plan for how city leaders will do so. The plan would include "public health tools" such as mental health responders, substance abuse specialists, violence interrupters and violence prevention professionals.


Well, you got the talking part done, now let's see the walking part! I'm excited to see such ground breaking initiative taken. It's obviously helping what with crime almost stamped out in Minneapolis and it's surrounding area.

This is exactly the kind of test bed we need to know if having "police" is even a good idea at all. If you live in this area, be sure to let us all know how things progress over there.

Funny how the same a$$holes who tell me that I don't need a gun, because the Police are there to protect me, are pushing this. I'm quite capable of protecting me and mine, but, they are not going to like how I do it.

In a normal world, you’d have George Floyd’s picture as the definition of a POS.

In our clown world - he is venerated.

This has got me thinking we dipped in to the 4th dimension and the cosmic tricksters are running the show.

In all fairness, George Floyd has managed to follow the law and be a good citizen for almost 14 months now... maybe he turned over a new leaf?

that is EXACTLY what I expect to see. Vigilante justice run amok. LOL, a chance for all the white supremacist's to load up the AR-15's and head to the city for some country justice.

At least we will finally see them in the moonlight. Up till now, they have been rather reclusive.

I can't see this going any other way than Derp.


eta: and please don't take that as directed towards you, it was not.

I'm not heading anywhere. I said "me and mine". I'll protect my family and myself from a threat.

Dumbass.

Is it still funny for people to say "we don't need no stinkin' badges"?

In a few years time comedy movies are going to be something else!

Your title is misleading. The City Council voted to have the matter added to the election ballot not to do away with the Police. It could result in a situation that will eliminate police but the people or citizens of Minneapolis will decide on the November ballot.

At least they are providing an opportunity no matter how misguided it is for the voting citizens to decide the matter. Sadly they have no solid plan of action of what exactly they will do as far as policing alternatives. Hopefully they come with one between now and the vote.

I am skeptical they will but equally as skeptical that the voters in Minneapolis will vote to do away with the police force but then nothing will surprise in the year 2021. I am confident that within 6 months of any vote to eliminate police that they will quickly adjust back to a normal police force policies or depend heavily on Sheriff Departments, State Police, or private security, after all what could possibly go wrong

again, (see edit) I didn't mean to imply that you were going to shoot anyone or be a vigilante. Just saying that this level of stupid will bring out the worst of the worst and make them feel justified in killing. Which will likely be followed by "see I told you white supremacist's were a real threat", much like the way Jan 6th accomplished so many things for the left.

sorry to mislead the intent with poor wording.

If you're looking to start a new business, you'll probably be able to buy some space downtown Minneapolis dirt cheap.(just don't plan on making any money)

This will probably do wonders for the housing market as well.

I don't think it's misleading at all. I included the information and a link to the full article. Yes it must be voted on, but if the people in power (who were voted on) all agree this is a good move, there is a chance it will pass. And again, that will prove this to be good or bad with no equivocation.

Maybe they are planning on turning Minneapolis into a giant prison? You know, like that film Escape from ( insert city here).
Sarcasm btw

The criminals will voluntarily give up their guns and knives now as to not endanger these people that are ordered to not shoot anyone who has not been interviewed by the agencies psychologist.
I cannot believe the citizens of that city will allow them to get rid of the police force and replace them with counselors and psychiatrists. But of course, it is Minneapolis, a city that prides itself on the big shopping mall. I wonder if the new agency will have clowns to reduce the stress of the criminals holding people hostage in their homes.
