Proof The Dems Just Want Compliant Victims

BAYSIDE, NY - AUGUST 01: A protester holds a sign that says, "Stop Killing Black People" as the crowd stands in front of then 111 New York Police Department Precinct with police officers looking on during the Black Lives Matter protest in Bayside, Queens. This peaceful protest was a March against Police violence against people of color and a reaction to events that happened in Bayside on July 12, 2020 where protestors were accosted by Blue Lives Matter supporters and one of the protesters was arrested while others were pepper sprayed by New York Police . This is days after Portland and other cities have seen federal agents have taken protesters and put into unmarked vehicles while others have been beaten and pepper sprayed. Protesters continue taking to the streets across America and around the world more than two months after the killing of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer Derek Chauvin that was kneeling on his neck during for eight minutes, was caught on video and went viral. During his arrest as Floyd pleaded, "I Can't Breathe". The protest are attempting to give a voice to the need for human rights for African American's and to stop police brutality against people of color. They are also protesting deep-seated racism in America. Many people were wearing masks and observing social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As violence spreads across Minneapolis, the city has basically come out to tell their residents that they are essentially on their own. Minneapolis police chief Medaria Arradondo issued a statement in response to the spike in robberies and carjackings in two areas of the city. Crime alerts have been issued as well with cell phones, purses, and vehicles among the targets for offenders. 

The Minneapolis City Government sent a letter informing residents what to do if they are targeted by carjackers or robbers. The letter explains the increase of 100 robberies and 20 carjackings in July alone, then suggesting that residents protect themselves and to surrender their property if targeted by violent criminals. 

The letter includes a list of robbery prevention tips including giving up your cell phone and purse/wallet, not walking alone, doing as they say, and being a good witness. In the list of carjacking prevention tips, the list includes locking your doors while driving, parking in well-lit areas, using a tracking device, not leaving anything of value in your car, and memorizing your license plate number. 

Correct me if I’m wrong but “robbery prevention tips” and “be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” do not seem to be the same message here. This is like something out of a Saturday Night Live skit. We’re going to defund the police AND tell citizens to obey criminals? What?

Violent crime has been especially high in Minneapolis’ 3rd precinct, following the death of George Floyd, which sparked violent protests in Minneapolis. Just days after Floyd’s death, violent protesters set the Minneapolis Police Station 3rd precinct building on fire.

With all of this happening, the Democrat-controlled Minneapolis City council has still voted to defund the city’s police department and are looking for alternatives to traditional policing. We all know that doesn’t seem to be working well for them either.

“Some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and some threatened with a gun. The cases have primarily involved physical force, although a gun has been implied or seen in several incidents. Suspects have approached victims on the sidewalk or in parking lots, then fled in a waiting vehicle – often one that was stolen in a prior incident. These incidents are happening during daytime and evening hours,” crime alerts issued. 

The police department is redeploying internal resources and intelligence gathering to target the rise in these crime areas, as well as working with the Precinct Inspectors and the Violent Crimes Investigative Division. 

Well now that they want to remove the police, you become the law. Good thing we have a second amendment to protect yourself and loved ones. As long as the Dems don’t look at taking that right away too. Oh wait, they’ve already tried that.
