Minneapolis residents sue city council over lack of policing, safety

Residents of Minneapolis, victims of the ongoing violence and crime have had enough and are taking matters into their own hands. At a press conference on Monday, community activist Cathy Spann put it this way:

“We are here, together in unison, to say enough is enough. I am here today to say it is about all of us coming together to make a difference to stop the gun violence that is in our city — downtown, south, north. We are stopping it. We are no longer asking for a plan. We are the plan.”

Residents of Minneapolis are tired of waiting for the government to protect them and are now suing the Minneapolis City Council for endangering citizens.

Since the death of George Floyd in their city on May 25, 2020, the city has endured rioting, looting, burning, killings, and all kinds of rampant crime. At the same time, the city council voted to “defund” the Minneapolis police department in order to “reimagine” the city’s public safety.

Violent crimes like murders, carjackings, and shootings have surged in that city since the city council voted in June to defund the police. Additionally, hundreds of MPD officers resigned or retired in the wake of the anti-police actions of the city council.

Former Minneapolis city council member Don Samuels joined the lawsuit demanding that more police are needed to keep all the people of Minneapolis safe. Samuels explained the reasoning behind the lawsuit:

“We have made the emotional appeal. We have demonstrated the statistical uptick [in violence], and now, this is the legal action we are exercising because it seems as if the City Council cannot hear us and doesn’t feel what we feel.”

Take your city council members guns and guards away. Let them try to peacefully bargain with the ANTIFA and BLM thugs.

Makes you think that the only real way to stop a terrorist is with a bullet between the eyes. They are not really interested in safety, but have said their goal is to destabilize this country (ie. bring anarchy)

The Democratic States are trying to do a virus scare lock down before the election to keep IN person voters from voting, that’s why they have been cohering people to vote early also so they can not change there minds before Nov 3.

I have an idea, defund her body guard. If this b!tch thinks that you are not worth protecting, why should you think she is worth protecting. Leave her out there with one bullet, so she can end her suffering, when antifuka gets there hands on her.

This is “We, The People” in action.
WE the boss, folks!!!

Yes we the people are the boss. these politician seem to think that because they are elected that they have complete power, and we the people have no recourse, but to obey them. However that power is only as good as we let it. When political leaders go to far and the people step in then they have to listen to the people. All we have to do is with hold all tax money till they beg for use to help them. He who holds the purse holds the power. The people have the money. USE IT.
