I’ll take Things I Don’t Miss for $200

What is Minneapolis?

Minneapolis has suffered a surge in crime that has coincided with a severe shortage of police officers. Undeterred, City Council members want to make further cuts to law enforcement.

Police have registered a 537-percent increase in violent carjackings in the city compared with last November, the local Star Tribune reported. More than 125 such crimes have been recorded over the past two months, with three separate carjackings reported within a one-hour period on Saturday morning. One of the victims, an elderly woman, was struck on the head by her assailants. 

“The numbers are staggering,” a Minneapolis police spokesperson told the paper. “It defies all civility and any shred of common human decency.”

Authorities have blamed the crime wave on “small groups of marauding teens,” but acknowledged that adults have also been arrested in connection to the string of carjackings. The surge in this type of attack has prompted the city’s police force to create a new coding system to help keep track of the criminal acts. The spree of carjackings isn’t the only public safety crisis facing the city: An analysis by the Star Tribune in September found that violent crimes – including homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assaults – were up 17 percent from the previous five-year average for this period….

Despite the crime surge and personnel shortage, a trio of City Council members, including Council President Lisa Bender, have submitted a proposal that would cut the Minneapolis police budget by nearly $8 million. 

If you think diversity is bad in your community now, just wait until it is in a position to take over and start running things. It really shouldn’t surprise anyone that rule by third worlders, even if only by SJW proxy, looks suspiciously like the Third World.

UPDATE: an email from a Minneapolis resident.

One of my employees got carjacked last night at gunpoint when pulling into her parking garage down by Loring Park in Minneapolis. Stole her Mercedes, company laptop, and one client file. She’s ok, extremely shaken up. Minneapolis is totally out of control. Happening every day now, sometimes three per day. They tracked car on Mercedes app from her phone, police chased them twice, found them walking. One had car key fob in their pocket; police told her they could not prosecute based on this. Said if she wanted to pursue fingerprinting of her car, it would take weeks, and they’d need to keep it for that duration, due to being backed up in police department. Physically, she’s ok, mentally, she’s a wreck. Fuckers are going to walk.

It’s much worse than it even seems.  When I go downtown for meetings, it has to be before noon and still it’s an eerie & dangerous place.
