The Minneapolis City Council has stated their are determined to disband their Police Force. How soon will it be before other cities take up this glorious idea?
Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender says Minneapolis Police will be Abolished
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tweeted her support for a Minneapolis City Council member's call to disband the city's police department in the wake of George Floyd's death.
This is Ilhan Omar with Keith Ellison who is the Attorney General of Minnesota
And a statement to Ilhan Omar from Rep. Steven Smith
This is AG Keith Ellison's take on ANTIFA
Alternative idea's put forth so far include sending in "Social Workers" and medics.
Social workers. EMTs. Unarmed “community-oriented” street teams. These are the people who would be dispatched to deal with 911 calls.
Question: Will social worker's hand out teddy bears or milk and cookies to calm a violent situation?
Here are a few more questions for Minneapolis residents that might popup after the police department is disbanded:
* Will Minneapolis residents still be able to get a mortgage?
* Will Minneapolis residents be able to purchase car insurance, health insurance, or even life insurance?
* Will people living outside of Minneapolis be able to obtain insurance if they work in Minneapolis?
This may well be how the city council members see Minneapolis after the police department has been disbanded (minus the rainbow's, flowers, and unicorns that will surely be there for everyone to enjoy).
However, criminals and rioters will see Minneapolis a different way...
And this is likely how everyone else will envision Minneapolis after the police department has been disbanded

Note: I have always enjoyed watching the pilots speech. It's sounds like something the Symbionese Liberation Army might have stated.
