The news broke one day after the Minneapolis City Council “cut $1.5 million from the MPD’s $193 million budget.”
The Minneapolis City Council unanimously approved a pledge to disband the police department, Breitbart News reported.
Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) vowed that the council would “dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.” Minneapolis City Council member Jeremiah Ellison (DFL), son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison (D), echoed Bender’s sentiments.
“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department. And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due,” Ellison said in a tweet.
Chicago, New York City, and other Democrat-run cities are also witnessing a surge in gun violence in 2020.
On June 25, 2020, the Washington Postreported that out of the top 20 cities for violent crime in America, 17 have Democrat mayors.
