    Several Minneapolis council members are reportedly considering altogether "disbanding" the city's police department in the wake of George Floyd's death and the subsequent protests and riots that have erupted across the country in recent days.

    "I don't know yet, though several of us on the council are working on finding out, what it would take to disband the [Minneapolis Police Department] and start fresh with a community-oriented, non-violent public safety and outreach capacity," said Steve Fletcher, a council member who represents the city's Ward 3, which covers parts of downtown, on Twitter.


    According to the City Pages, a local news outlet, fellow council member Phillipe Cunningham retweeted the thread.

    Another council member, Alondra Cano, also spoke out, tweeting that the police department is "not reformable" and that "change is coming."

    Gosh, o hope the thread title wasn’t toooooo hyperbolic.

    Now would be a great time for a general police strike.

    Give the city of Minneapolis a week’s worth of what they are asking for.....

    I’d like to see that social experiment play out.

    Talk about a social experiment. My guess is citizens scared with no real police to call are ten times more likely to shoot someone robbing or threatening them.

    Not wishing at all. That's the point of no return. There will be no room for hesitation

    No other option.

    Oddly, it is likely to immediately lower crime rates.

    Agreed on that.

    My comment was also directed at “them” and their wishes.

    time to strike for 30 days. Call off, we all got covid dealing with the scum. Time to apply elsewhere. The sheriffs dept will suffer for this. The fire and medics will not want to go out.

    I dont think crime rates would fall. Maybe the in your face looting. But not car theft and retail theft and burglary. Rape and assault will not fall. I carry a 45 shield or 10mm 1911 every day, but most of the tender people rely on the threat of law enforcement catching up.
    Simple math really.. reduce the ability of law enforcement and reduce the effect on criminals. Sure criminals might fear me as I stand up and say get away from my stuff.. but 95 percent of people are sheep.

    Real police are employed to be professional.. and allow weak people to be able to survive in society. A 75 year old grandma and a 5th grade girl and most of society depend on police to do the dirty work.

    Let them think they own us. We aren't weak-willed, yellow-bellied, lily-livered pushovers like those people in the Democrat-run cities.

    I was talking to an officer friend of mine tonight who came from Atlanta. They told me that 5 different agencies have pulled out of atl as of today and told them they’re on their own.
    It serves them right.

    The left wants chaos and anarchy so they can impose their totalitarian regime to "restore" order.

    It is a classic Socialist tactic, make people fearful and they will surrender their rights for perceived "safety".

    wow! So much for mutual aid.

    But why would anyone come from out of town, and risk themselves just to get told to stand on the sidelines, or possibly get thrown under the bus?

    My thought was based on the idea that emboldened criminals will act, well, emboldened. Which would likely hurt lots of people. But would also provoke good people to confrontation.

    Eventually, they would encounter a worthy adversary. Who would be MUCH less hesitant than the police.

    You can be 4 and 0, 12 and 0, or 22 and 0. If you push the issue, sooner or later, you will be “and 1”.

    Thus endeth the career.
