Minnesota Governor is ‘really angry’ that state Republicans won’t allow leftists to overhaul law enforcement

Minnesota has been the unlikely flashpoint for a growing movement to defund and disband law enforcement agencies nationwide.

In the wake of the shocking late May death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, leftists within the state’s legislature — with the backing of Gov. Bill Walz (D) — attempted to force a major overhaul of the state’s law enforcement mechanism.

However, after weeks of discussion, Walz was forced to admit on Saturday that radical leftists within the state’s legislature had spectacularly failed in their quest to fundamentally change the way policing is done in the state. 

After an extensive back-and-forth between the state Senate’s Democrat and Republican representatives, Republicans rejected three different police reform proposals, including defunding of the police, granting voting rights to felons, and giving the Attorney General jurisdiction over police-involved deaths.

Walz was clearly furious at Senate Republican’s refusal to overhaul the state’s law enforcement rules, complaining during a Saturday press conference that it’s “their way or the highway, and that is not acceptable.”

Fox News reported:

“The Senate adjourned without saying what was wrong with that offer on accountability, what was wrong with those issues,” Waltz said during a news conference Saturday, adding: “This is a failure to engage.”

Walz said some legislators take the attitude of “their way or the highway, and that is not acceptable.”

“To take your ball home in the middle of this, this is an embarrassment for Minnesota,” Walz said, making his frustrations clear.

Walz said legislators had more than enough time to read the bill in full and work to negotiate a compromise that both Republicans and Democrats could have agreed on.

“I am a really angry citizen,” Walz added, urging Republican and Democratic senators to come back to the table and negotiate.

Democrats and leftists have been throwing temper tantrums for weeks about Republican calls for law and order, but it’s clear that their hyperventilating will get them nowhere if the silent majority is not behind them.

  1. The latest are DESTROYING America ! They are all a bunch bbn if worthless hypocrites!! Americans pay out the yang yang for police and special protection for all of them ,and they are trying to throw the American People under the bridge ! Time for the American people to unite and take back our Country !

    1. Margaret you are correct we need to send these non-believers back to their own hell-hole and send obama with then

    2. I guess it’s just you and me Margaret. Where you wanna start? NYC mayor? He’s taking down a statue of Teddy Roosevelt. Somebody needs to fire the second “shot heard around the world.” I got nothing to do this week but defend the American way of life.

    3. Margaret you hit the nail right square on the head. I don’t know what the heck is happening to our proud country? Is something in the water? People are nuts. Hatred, retribution, politically or socially correct. Words no one can say with actual consequences. No matter what, someone will be offended even if no offense was even intended.
      Tearing down statues that represent USA history, people want to destroy instead of sitting down and talking out your problems or issues, singing groups change their name because it implies Southern injustice. Football teams with Native American or Innuit titles (Indians, Chiefs, etc.)incur the wrath of someone. Now we can’t have Eskimo Pie. Somehow I doubt they give a dam about Eskimo pies. I am serious. Defund our first line of defense, the police. WHAT HAPPENED TO US ?

  2. Don’t know how they can let all this destruction keep going. The state’s that let them keep destroying everything Governors must not care.

    1. Maybe we should let Minnesota have no Police and all the people that want to live their should have to stay in Minnesota and suffer the consequences of lawlessness maybe we could build a wall around Minnesota people who want no law are up to no good and maybe we should let everyone out of prison send them to Minnesota you can’t be a criminal where theirs no law what a joke. I don’t always like Cops either you know what I do I behave myself I follow the laws and if by chance I do come in contact with police I’m respectfull and NON COMBATIVE

  3. I think they are crazy as bed bugs, it just another ploy for more power and they got too much now. There is not going to be anything left if these protesters aren’t stopped. The police need to be able to protect themselves.

  4. The defunding of police is stupid and can only lead to chaos and a whole lot of illegal behaviors — as we have already seen in Mpls. Gov. Walz should either govern according to the state and federal constitutions, or let Someone in office who will do that.

  5. Been a Democrat all my life till 2016. Democrats are an embarrassment to this Country! They should be ashamed of themselves! They all need replacing! They’re not following the constitution as it was written! They’re destroying our Country!!

      1. Karen Lee wright! I have been a republican since 1952! These last few years (oblamo era) have been horrible DNC used to have some weird ideas, but now they a socialistic Nazi commies and if they were any farther left, they would be on an atoll in mid Pacific! Oblamo is leader of DNC( damned Negro Creeps) and they get worse, day by day! Your remarks are superior! Excellent! Keep on keeping on and welcome to the GOP! SEMPER
        FI

  6. Best example in Seattle…. someone died and someone may not live because they “needed” the police and then wouldn’t let them in to the autonomous zone. Hope this wakes up some of the uneducated to see what can really happen.

  7. I believe everyone of you corrupt democrat communists should be fired and hanged publicly. You have been committing treason for way to long. Time to see everyone of you gone.

    1. Roger that Reggie. Anyone that isn’t really sick of these riots ( either black or white or Asian or Hispanic) is truly ignorant and should go live in Cuba, China or Venezuela. I’ll help pay their way.

  8. What should concern everyone is the refunding of the police force is just one more step to one world order.
    And it’s ashame that a few bad apples are making it tuff for the good officers to be able to do their jobs without fear and the rights to protect themselves.
    And as far as the forceful protest’s if it was me my ass would be in Jail. It’s time to grab your balls and get these trouble makers where they should be. Case closed. The swamp needs cleared of these trouble makers that are spreading chaos .

  9. Look at history, the democrats are the ones that permitted and backed slavery to begin with, that is why they are try to push this all on to the Republicans

    1. I think these people voting for the democratic party are mostly welfare cases. the democratic party has them so afraid they are going to loose there welfare checks. its like the democrats own these people. they probably do. Let hope we can get Trump in for 4 more years, if we don’t we are doomed.

  10. I am a Republican, but I would not be a Democrat if they paid me. We definitely need Law and Order. Our police officers do their best and yet, it is not enough, according to Democrats,who want to defund the Police Officers all over the US. If we did not have the Police, we would be in terrible trouble. I am glad that the Republicans will not pass the bill to defund the police officers. They don’t get paid enough as it is.

  11. I believe the Government Should Remove These Mayors and Govenors who have let their Tax Paying Citizens Down. Get Them Out, For Good.
    Our Cities Are In Trouble And Desperately Need Mayors And Govenors
    Who Know the Law And Are Wiiing To UPHOLD IT FOR EVERYONE.
    Their Actions During The Unrest In Their Cities And States, Or Should I Say Their Refusals To Act or Do Anything Constructive To Protect Their Citizens Should Be A Federal Crime Against The Citizens And They Should Be Held Accountable And Placed In Prison . Also Never Allowed To Run For Any Public Office EVER AGAIN. They Are Out Right
    Committing Treason To The People And Our Great Government By Refusing To Uphold The Law And Protect Their Citizens. GET THEM OUT OF OFFICE IMMEDIATELY ! IMPEACH THEM !!!!!!!

  12. I grew up under the constitution! What most of the dems are doing is against what most of us believe in!

    1. Totally agree, I am o glad I am now a senior citizen and hopefully will be dead and gone and not have to watch my Country go down in flames. I don’t like the living conditions now, don’t want to be around and watch the Dems and social groups burn it down. My childhood was amazing, War babies whose fathers were away fighting overseas for 5 years during WW2.Patriotism was high. We saluted the flag and said the Pledge of Allegience. Went to church. I was fortunate to grow up with America instilled in me. Believe me – I lived in a much GENTLER time. Ask any Boomer.

  13. The Democrats have lost any sense of reasoning. As a result, the Democrats no longer have any credibility. The silent majority has taken note of the lies and inconsistencies that have been put forward by the Party and MSM. All of it has been disproven and invalidated as time progresses. The Day of Reckoning is coming!

  14. What I think is: the looting and rioting SHOULD be turning the electorate against the Left.

    But it’s difficult to predict what people who vote the same moron’s with a radical agenda back into office time and time again will do. For the average intelligent person, when you put your hand into the fire and get burned, you don’t put your hand back in the fire.

    I think there are a lot of stumps running around out there.

  15. I live in Washington State. Our governor is so dumb that he believes we think he works so hard he doesn’t have time to call the mayor of Seattle about what is happening there. He is so busy pushing his environmental ideas and thinking he could be President that he has no time to be governor. I guess that’s best at least he is out of our way.

  16. You want change? All have that opportunity to VOTE responsibly to put this country on the right path. It’s up to you! You are the people representing the Constitution, vote accordingly! Do your diligent research!

  17. When all these idiots who want to get rid of our police have an actual emergency, don’t you know they’ll dial 911!!
    These tiresome Hillary whiners will NOT destroy my beloved USA! There’s enough real Americans out there who will stand for America and our DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT TRUMP!
    These spoiled tantrum throwers are the minority that are revealed in the end times who will call good evil, and evil good. They think they will get by with all this lawlessness without being held accountable …..WRONG.

  18. I am so glad other people want these Democrats OUT and plan to vote to do so…I get so discouraged when I see or read the news and I only watch and read what are considered more conservative stations. But evidently management of those people are now not thinking of the Constitution.

  19. The one question Democrats won’t answer IS: Does this go for your citizen paid for Police Security? This is for thee Not for ME. They don’t even show up for work anymore with security. Looters and Rioters will run out of local businesses to destroy and hopefully they set sights on their property. That’s the only time they will act. They will call the Police! VOTE THEM OUT!

  20. A word to the wise from an 80+ year old, Stay out of Minnesota if you value your life and that of your loved ones. The democrats running the State and once beautiful Cities do not have any interest in protecting their Citizens so long as they are in power.

  21. Hopefully democrat voters will understand what the democrat socialists are doing and if they would read the COMMUNIST MANIFESTO, which is online, they would know.

  22. The only difference between pre civil war Democrats and post civil war Democrats Is then they wanted to enslave and oppress the black people now they want to enslave and oppress all People this coarse of action has been gaining strength since the civil war. The Clinton and Obama Administration’s along with the Communist Democratic Party have done major damage to our republic. This November America has to destroy the Communist Democratic Party and take our country back shame on US if that doesn’t happen

  23. These governors/mayors are cowards and a disgrace. How can they ever rationalize abandoning the citizens who voted them into office? We can fix the problem. VOTE THEM OUT. Let them run for office in Seattle’s Chaz.

  24. Amen 100% right I have been saying this for years.i wish they would read the history of slaves.the first slave owner,seller was the black man .Democrats are the ones who started slavery the Republicans whites are the ones who got rid of slavery. They dont want the truth.

  25. Walz is an incompetent jerk. Having lived in Minneapolis/St. Paul for 4 years, I remember at a city of civility. It is where the University is called “The U.” Incompetent politicians is a part of Minnesota’s DNA. The list is too long to enumerate, but honest people will remember them all. Walz’s biggest problem which he shares with so many politicians on both sides of the aisle is that he has no courage, nor does he have any integrity.

    1. The governor’s and majors even ags of the counties permitting those riots, anarchism and any kind of acts like them should be indeed confront the rule of laws themselves. That’s kind of governments are corrupts and against the Constitution , which assure us a peaceful live.

  26. ever heard be careful what you wish for?? YOU AMERICA HATERS,DEMONRATS,POLICE HATERS,DESRVE WHAT IS GONNA HAPPEN WHEN/IF THE COPS DECIDE TO QUIT…….YOURE GONNA BE UNDER ATTACK BY THE MONSTER YOU ALL HELPED CREATE. WHEN A LOVED ONE IS GETTING RAPED,ROBBED,MURDERED AND THEN YOU WILL WISH LIKE HELL THERE WERE COPS TO RESPOND,BUT ITLL BE TOO LITTLE/TOO LATE. DONT THINK YOURE PROTECTED IN YOUR RITZY NEIGHBORHOODS,YOU WILL GET A QUICK WAKE UP..SUPPORT LAW AND ORDER,SUPPORT TRUMP, SUPPORT THE USA.

  27. THIS WAS NEVER “PEACEABLE”……THE PROTESTERS WERE OUT FOR BLOOD RIGHT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING……AND THEIR MAIN MISSION WAS VIOLENT!!!!!!!!! THEY SUCCEEDED…..THE STATE IS AT WAR….WITH EVERYONE WHO DOSEN’T AGREE WITH THEM?????THEY WANT TO BURN DOWN THE CITY AND THEN “NO ONE” WILL HAVE JOBS OR ANYTHING ELSE!!!!!! THEN (AS THEY ALREADY HAVE) ASK THE GOVERNMENT FOR FUNDS TO RE-BUILD!!!!!!! I DO NOT WANT ANY OF MY TAX DOLLARS TO GO TO THUGS…..AND THATS WHAT THE STATES WILL HAVE….ALREADY IN SEATTLE….IN THE LITTLE CUT OFF AREA…(LOVE”. LAUGHABLE!!!! THE STATE WANTS FED FUNDS TO RE–BUILD!!!! “NO WAY”!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WANT TO SEE PEOPLE MARCH IN PROTEST……YOU HAVEN’T SEEM ANYTHING YET????????? THE STATES MADE THE MESS AND THEY WILL HAVE TO CLEAN IT UP!!!

  28. The governor’s and majors even ags of the counties permitting those riots, anarchism and any kind of acts like them should be indeed confront the rule of laws themselves. That’s kind of governments are corrupts and against the Constitution , which assure us a peaceful live.

  30. They are just a bunch of crybabies. We the people elected a man that would stand up to them. And our President Donald Trump swore he
    drained the swamp. And we love him very much. I well vote again for President Trump in November.

  31. Yes…it’s deffinately turning people away from the democratic socialist party ( communist party ) , and rightfully so. Who in the hell wants communism? Look what communism has done for any country. You’d have to be an idiot to give up your freedoms and your guns!!

  32. YES,MOST DEFFINATELY. WHO WANTS COMMUNISM? YOU’D HAVE TO BE A COMPLETE IDIOT TO GIVE UP YOUR FREEDOMS AND YOUR GUNS!!
