Minneapolis needs a law enforcement surge
Enough reimagining already. We need a real-life solution to end the crime crisis on our streets.
Our beloved city is in crisis. Crime keeps climbing with no end in sight. Aside from City Council President Lisa Bender, few of us feel safe.

Worse yet, our police chief says that with his department shrinking at an alarming rate, some 911 calls may soon need to go unanswered. We’re on our own. This borders on anarchy — Minneapolis meets “Mad Max.”

In response to an exasperating absence of leadership and urgency, a group of us — concerned residents, many of us crime victims — recently spoke to the Minneapolis City Council’s Public Health and Safety Committee. Our message: Enough is enough; do something now!

First you HAVE to drain the swamp. No change of any kind can progress until you remove the fruits and nuts.

Unfortunately, until enough of the peasants wake up, nothing will change.
I will never apologize for being an American.

I thought social workers were going to ride in on unicorns and take care of everything.

They are, but the city council is having difficulty procuring the unicorns.

Any one willing to bet how long it will take for a MPLS “social worker” to be injured? IF they can find a social worker dum enough to sign up for the job. I’ll bet there is some one ignorant enough that thinks they can reason with someone that’s turning there life around.

When one of these idiots social workers gets blown away by a criminal they are trying to de escalate, maybe the city council will rethink their options.

You don’t think those they hired are not the criminals themselves? You don’t know how Minneapolis works then.
