“A police-free future”

FROM THE Star-Tribune in Minneapolis yesterday:


In their boldest statement since George Floyd’s killing, nine Minneapolis City Council members told a crowd Sunday that they will “begin the process of ending the Minneapolis Police Department.”

“We recognize that we don’t have all the answers about what a police-free future looks like, but our community does,” they said, reading off a prepared statement. “We’re committed to engaging with every willing community member in the City of Minneapolis over the next year to identify what safety looks like for you.”


Those nine members make up a veto-proof majority of the Democrat-dominated Minneapolis City Council.
