Wow! Minneapolis City Council President Says Calling the Police on Burglars “Comes from a Place of Privilege” (VIDEO)
We’re now closing in on two weeks worth of protests and riots across the country, but especially in Minneapolis.
Now it looks like the city is going to make a terrible decision and are intending on disbanding their police department.
This decision is mostly coming from the Minneapolis City Council. The President of the council recently spoke with Alisyn Camerota on CNN to talk about the decision.
“We are here today because George Floyd was killed by the Minneapolis Police Department. We are also here because, here in Minneapolis and in cities across the United States, it is clear that our existing system of policing and public safety isn’t working for so many of our neighbors,” Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender said in a written statement Sunday, obtained by the Appeal. “Our efforts at incremental reform have failed.”
Camerota then asked, “What if in the middle of the night my home is broken into. Who do I call?”
BENDER: “Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”
She then mentions imagining the scenario where more harm is done if police are called. The facts are that this isn’t the case the great majority of the time.
Umm…let me show you something. This is Minneapolis WITH police

Do you really want to get rid of the police?
I think it would be a much wiser decision to dial back some of the superpowers that police have such as qualified immunity. There should also be no reason, NO REASON to pin a man down on the ground for such a long time. What were they waiting for? There were four grown men there, they could have easily restrained him put him in the back of a police vehicle. If they can’t, they don’t need to be a police officer.
I think pulling a gun needs to stop being the immediate knee jerk reaction to everything and that
