    It's gonna be a disaster, and when it fails, the people who made it happen will lay blame on everyone but themselves and cry for the federal government to bail them out....

    Let's be real here, no major city is going to dismantle its police force.

    Well, the city council met on it and they have announced that it's moving forward, so I guess we shall see...

    “In Minneapolis, where Mr. Floyd was killed in police custody, a veto-proof majority of the city council agreed to begin the process of disbanding the police department—a necessary step, council members said, after decades of incremental police reform.” WSJ

    If it happens, I feel for our brothers in blue who get shafted but I think it will serve as a bitter lesson for them and warning for any other group of morons who are contemplating a similar course of action. I can think of other dangerous options such as disarming the officers being brought forward.

    Imagine the money the city will save, and how more money they can give to nonproductive citizens. Mogadishu part two.

    So, the Hennepin County Sheriff and Minnesota Highway Patrol will have to provide police services?!?! The city is off the hook and can point the finger of blame at the Sheriff and MHP Director when **** goes sideways.

    Never let a crisis go to waste...

    Police recruiters nationwide are now looking forward to more qualified applicants.

    I fully expect the SO to be disbanded, and MHP to be banned from the city/county next.

    Had not thought of that, blueiron! You always find the silver lining.
    I'd like to edit my post to add that there will be more qualified FD and EMS applicants as well because they can't do their jobs and watch their backs at the same time. Seems that the situation is not unlike a three-legged stool.

    My only worry they’ll change their minds.

    Another Democrat Utopia. Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Baltimore, better watch out. They got some heavy competition coming their way.

    Future headlines:

    And the most murders for a weekend goes to.... Minneapolis! Again, 37th week in a row! Congratulations! Big round of applause in the name of Progress!

    That's exactly what will happen.

    I honestly hope it happens. This is what the citizens voted for, they can reap what they sew.

    Yep. It's going to be Escape from Minneapolis in five years.

    Sounds like a good time for blue flu, should give them a taste of what's to come. I was talking to a young kid taking CJ courses and I asked him what his minor was and he looked puzzled. I told him you need something to fall back on when your fired or get out of prison.

    Somebody should put a bug in the ear of the Minneapolis city council to ban any and all private security and private armed security within their war zone for any and all persons (including city council members). Just have to be clever enough not to alarm them while making sure the city council doesn't exempt themselves.

    Enjoy.

    Honestly, at this point, they don't need a police force. Everything has been torched already. Just let nature take its course.
