The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously approved a proposal to change the city charter to allow the police department to be dismantled, following mass public criticism of law enforcement over the killing of George Floyd.
The 12-0 vote is just the first step in a process that faces significant bureaucratic obstacles to make the November ballot, where the city’s voters would have the final say.
And it came amid a spate of recent shootings in Minnesota’s largest city that have heightened many citizens´ concerns about talk of dismantling the department.
This is the first thing that came to mind.
Now, if the officer of Minneapolis PD are so kind and quit in masse tonight, it should make for an interesting weekend. You know goons are gonna come out and attack them, right? Why risk it?
