Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
June – Minneapolis City Council President on CNN – expecting police to prevent crime comes from a place of white privilege.
June, July, August – Minneapolis City Council to all Minneapolis Police Officers: You’re horrible people and we’re going to de-fund your entire department, to start from scratch and reinvent public safety.
September – Minneapolis City Council to Minneapolis Police Chief: Crime is out of control and residents are terrified. Why aren’t police officers doing a better job of preventing crime?
The Minneapolis Chief of Police is Medaria Arrando, a Black man. When the Council fires him, he’ll join the ranks of other Black police chiefs fired as scapegoats for White city council virtue-signaling gone wild including Le’Ron Singletary, Carmen Best, and U. Renee Hall.
But firing the Black police chief flies in the face of a study claiming to prove that police departments run by Black police chiefs have Fewer shootings.
It’s almost as if Liberals don’t care about actual results, only about looking good to the media.
Among “progressives”, participation trophies are good enough.
