Minneapolis council members calling to defund police spend $63G on private security details after receiving death threats @ Fox News, 6/27/20. ^ Minneapolis City Council pushes hard to "defund" the police agency, then spends $60K+ for armed security to protect City Council members from threats by angered citizens. Inevitable is the word. Duh. There is absolutely a need for effective and capable protection. Any child knows this. Yet, these ignorant children in city councilmen's clothing push to eviscerate policing, as though it's a woke game to be played. It has ramifications. In-your-face ramifications. Deadly ramifications. Minus the means of withstanding arsonists, looters, robbers and murderers, and holding them accountable, Minneapolis is going to devolve into a literal sewer. As will we all, if we accept this drivel. Heavily review and revamp, where appropriate. Smart. Double-up on the oversight, guards and protections against abusive opportunities. Just, and necessary. (ie, Partners, bodycams required, improved training, firmer standards on when physical force is allowable, vastly stiffer accountability for improper use of force, improved "community" policing efforts, etc.) But, "defund" at our peril. Lest the inevitable Hell follow on its heels. Arm-up. And keep yer powder dry. The wokesters aren't going to let this crap die easily.
