The members want to invest in community-based public safety programs instead.
You can bet this isn’t going to end well. Mark my words, this will lead to more violence.
It's not just Forbes. It was also MSNBC, CNN, Fox, etc. I just posted the one from Forbes.I may not be in the complete loop due to lots of work and such, but the last I heard was that the Police Department in Minneapolis was being de-funded only, not disbanded.
I'm not the most politically savy person out there, but even I know that would lead to nothing but bad juju all around to have untrained and unqualified individuals try to police their own communities. Restructuring the police department would be a great step all around, but disbanding them? I'm surprised Forbes ran an article as such, this will cause chaos for sure.
This is exactly the outcome I see. All of the good people leave and an entire city gets taken over by thugs. So the military has to come in and figure out who are the bad guys. Exactly like Iraq.The sheriff of the area has already stated that he doesn't want to help and believes if they put themselves in harms way by disbanding the police department that's their problem. Anoka Co. Sheriff has 'no appetite' to help Minneapolis if it abolishes police department
It would be so sad to see another civil war that was ultimately fought over race issues. As if enough people didn't die last time. I don't know anyone that wants a civil war but many elected Democrats seem intent on fostering an environment where one will happen.
The way I see it, it's going to destabilize the entire system in areas where there are no police. Gangs will take over as well as various other violent groups. Rule of law will disappear. Eventually, military will have to move in to stabilize the situation, and it's war from there.
Taking away the police will lead to countless deaths and unspeakable violence.
The media truly are the enemy of a free people. Can't believe how many people are buying into these lies.
It's been very hard to processThis is exactly the outcome I see. All of the good people leave and an entire city gets taken over by thugs. So the military has to come in and figure out who are the bad guys. Exactly like Iraq.
Just as unwinnable.
I can't even comprehend everything that's happened in the last 4 months.
