No Minister

So the beatings did change minds!

Last year cities across the USA exploded with violent riots, led by Burn Loot Murder in the wake of the death of one George Floyd while he was being arrested by police. Democrat-controlled cities as it happened, since they’re hotbeds of systemic racism.

Ground Zero for this was the city of Minneapolis, previously only really known for The Mary Tyler Moore Show in the 1970’s.

To show their sympathy and understanding for the Peaceful Protests, the “leaders” of the city not only pulled the cops from defending one of their precinct buildings, which was promptly burned to the ground, they started defunding their police force.

This led to entirely predictable results:

Homicides in Minneapolis are up 50 percent, with nearly 75 people killed across the city so far this year. More than 500 people have been shot, the highest number in more than a decade and twice as many as in 2019. And there have been more than 4,600 violent crimes — including hundreds of carjackings and robberies — a five-year high.

Not that it mattered to these people – at least initially.

It’s very sad that humans have to endure so much punishment before they see the light, although it’s a fair bet that the political leaders like Councilwoman Bender suffered no direct pain at all. But now the circle is complete.

So they’ve changed their minds and now they’re going to increase police funding, to the tune of $6.4 million per year, to hire more cops. Ordinary people have been hurt enough it seems and OrangeManBad has been defeated. What’s the bet that the BLM response will be tiny or non-existent.

The trouble is that it’s not really about the money anymore. What person in their right mind would want to join the MPD? A career spent with a target painted on your back with your Mayor and Councillors holding a large knife. You know that any encounter with a criminal that goes bad will likely be blamed on you, resulting in not just the end of your career as an MPD cop but loss of pension and employment prospects anywhere else, possibly even outside of law enforcement, as the Cancel brigade deems you a racist and goes after you and your family.

I can’t see many people buying into that, also knowing that even if the arrest goes well it won’t mean anything in the wake of District Attorney’s determined to show the protestors that they’re on their side – Left-Wing protestors admittedly. The following is from Portland but the same thing has been happening with DA’s in Seattle, Chicago, and Minneapolis.

It will be interesting to see the difference between this sort of “punishment” for throwing Molotov cocktails at cops vs what awaits those who smashed windows and invaded the “sacred spaces” of the Capitol in Washington D.C. on January 6th. Hannah Lilly’s actions and punishment mirror those of the folk who rioted in Washington on January 20, 2017, where the two hundred people arrested for such things had their charges dropped. But now, twenty years for Sedition is the rumour.

But then politicians are more important than cops, or any other subject of the nation for that matter.

In the case of Minneapolis you also have to consider the fact that people and companies have already seen enough and bailed on the city. I doubt this sop will bring them back, especially when it’s likely that the cop at the center of the George Floyd incident, Derek Chauvin, will be found not guilty of Second Degree Murder next month, and may even go free given that all the evidence may make it hard to even make Second Degree Manslaughter stick. His three comrades, facing lessor charges, may also go free.

Who would want to be a Minneapolis cop on that day?

  2. Thank you for writing this, I have shared this onto my own site for posterity. It’s notable that the BLM apologists/supporters aren’t commenting on this.

    • Thanks for that. In the face of the Google/Facebook/Twitter world I think all blogs need to start supporting eachother and spreading their stories and arguments.
