Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
We had a thorough discussion about Ryan Winkler’s tweet and established
that Democrats have a strong personal belief, perhaps even a moral
conviction, that public safety is a government responsibility.
We had a thorough discussion about a lawsuit against the City and
established that when citizens suffer because government abandoned its
responsibility, the citizens have no recourse against the government
under existing law.
So the obvious question is: Will Ryan Winkler introduce legislation
creating a right for citizens to sue the government for failing its
responsibility to protect them? And will the new law be retroactive to
cover the riots?
Ryan Winkler talked the talk, but will he walk the walk?
There may be no more superficial person in Minnesota politics than Ryan Winkler.
Other than Erin Maye Quade. And Ilhan Omar.
OK, and probably a few others.
But you get the point.
