Defunding Is Out, Refunding Is In: Minneapolis Approves More Funding to Police to Combat Crime Surge

Published

Minneapolis

The Epoch Times reports that multiple cities are backtracking on a call to arms to defund the police in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement. Not surprisingly, the very liberal cities that supported the defunding movement have quickly experienced a surge in crime levels.

A negative plus a negative doesn’t equal a positive; i.e., liberal policies pandering to progressivism plus defunding those who protect from said liberal policies does not equal peace, love and happiness.

Minneapolis’ Democratic leadership has been proudly screaming from the rooftops how supportive they are of so-called “progress” systemic change and defunding racist establishments.

What they haven’t been vocalizing is the fact that only months ago, the Minneapolis City Council “voted to approve $6.4 million more in funding to the police department, coming after a number of councilmembers last year pledged to completely abolish the department” writes the Epoch Times.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, “announced this month that his city is building a police precinct in Queens to deal with a spate in rising crime – coming months after he pledged to cut $1 billion from the NYPD’s budget” reports the Epoch Times. In actuality, “the city has cut far less from the police department than the pledged $1 billion.”

Minneapolis’ Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey said “the violence needs to stop; it’s unacceptable…People deserve to feel safe in their neighborhood, they deserve to be able to send their kids out to the sidewalk to play and to recreate without bullets flying by. That’s unacceptable. We should be holding these perpetrators accountable.”

The word “perpetrator” has been used to vilify policemen for an entire year. Finally, Frey blames the activists who called to defund the police. “When you make big, overarching statements that we’re going to defund or abolish and dismantle the police department and get rid of all the officers, there’s an impact to that” said Frey. Welcome to planet earth, Mayor Frey.

    Some lessons have to be learned the hard way. Defunding police is absurd. A few lousy cops doesn’t define all cops. Most cops are good, caring people. And if BLM and others want to stir the pot by professing that ‘black lives matter’, there are way more people who feel that all lives matter including the lives of cops. Blacks don’t want to be defined in a negative way for those among them who break the laws…well, guess what…no one want to be lumped into that negativity. Re-fund the police across the nation, et some gumption and lay down the law. You don’t like it? Move.

BLM DC Makes Vile Comment about Officers Called ‘Heroes’ When Shot in the Line of Duty

BLM

A suspect is still at large after opening fire on police officers in Northwest D.C. Sunday night. One officer was shot, and fortunately suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after being treated.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to make vicious remarks about cops who are targeted. The D.C. Police Department gave a press conference detailing the situation that had occurred and applauded the police department for “courageously” chasing the suspect before he was able to evade police.

The Police Chief asked for citizens to avoid the area where the suspect was last seen and encouraged the public to reach out to their department with any information that could be helpful to the case.

Black Lives Matter took the opportunity to promote its #StopMPD campaign and warn against “copaganda.” Black Lives Matter DC’s official Twitter account posted:

“This is the point we’ve been making for months, Look at the reaction and coverage tonight. Tearjerker press conferences and proclamations of heroes coming soon. Imagine if people knew these folks’ names. Being Black in DC is more dangerous than any job.”

In a follow-up tweet, the account stated “This isn’t to say these scenarios represent what happened tonight, but it does explain our skepticism, interest in details, and highlights the difference in how people talk and act when an officer is hurt vs when they hurt a Black person. No one asks what the cop did wrong.”

Another Victim Thrown on NYC Subway Tracks, 62-Year-Old Man Suffered Lacerated Leg

NYC Subway

Just over a week ago, 40-year-old Asian American Michelle Alyssa Go was pushed to her death in front of a train on the subway tracks of New York City’s Times Square. Another individual was shoved onto the tracks on Sunday.

New York Police Department said both attacks were unprovoked and called upon leadership officials to do more to protect the city’s citizens. Sunday’s victim was a 62-year-old man whose name has not been publicly released.

He was pushed onto the tracks in Lower Manhattan’s southbound train at the Fulton Street subway station. He sustained a leg laceration and police said there have not yet been any arrests in connection with the incident.

Go’s attacker was identified as Martial Simon, a 61-year-old homeless man with a history of violence and mental health issues. He was charged with second-degree murder. The New York Times reported that shortly before Go’s death, another woman saw him acting suspiciously and later told police she was afraid he was going to push her onto the tracks.

Subway attacks are the latest increase of issues that face Democrat New York Mayor Eric Adams. Adams has pledged to fight crime but has already implemented plans to minimize punishments for criminals in an effort to keep young men, particularly of color, out of prison.

Despite overall subway riding being down since the pandemic, the subway system has seen an increase in assaults last year. “According to the NYPD, 461 felony assaults were reported on the subway system in 2021, of which 30 involved a person being pushed onto the subway tracks. That’s an increase from the year before when there were 26 reported subway-pushing incidents” reports The Washington Post.

New York’s liberal leadership have been vocal supporters of the defund the police movement and saw the city turn to the wild west with protestors taking over the city during the Black Lives Matter movement shortly after George Floyd’s death. Rising crime and gun violence have plagued the city.
