Violent carjackings have jumped up a whopping 537 percent in the city of Minneapolis in the month of November as the city council continues to push forward to defund the local police department.
Apparently, these folks have never heard the phrase “you reap what you sow,” because they are continuing to push a foolish idea forward, regardless of the fact that it harms the very people they think they are protecting.
In reality, they are replacing “police brutality” with “criminal brutality,” in hopes that it will calm down the protesters and give them points come election time. Sad.
Minneapolis police have recorded more than 125 carjackings over the last two months, with much of the crime being attributed to groups of teenagers, the Star Tribune reported Wednesday.
“Within a one-hour period Saturday morning, police reported three separate carjackings in southeast Minneapolis, including one where an elderly woman was struck on the head. Such attacks are up 537% this month when compared with last November,” the Star Tribune reported.
Local police previously hadn’t tracked carjackings in the city until Sept. 22 of this year because they were so uncommon. After retroactively tracking the crime, officials found that at least 375 carjackings occurred this year, with 17 just last week. Overall, there have been three times more carjackings this year than in 2019.
And yet, despite all of this evidence that taking funding away from local law enforcement is a horrific idea, they press forward. Because the left clearly cares more about political victories than they do defending the people they are supposed to be serving.
Less funding means less police presence on the street. Less cops on the streets means that minority neighborhoods will be rocked with violent crime. This is not a viable or logical solution to the so-called problem of “police brutality” if such a thing exists.
This is a surefire way to destroy the people you think you’re helping, and by extension, obliterating your objectives to win elections.
Funny how that works, huh?
