Now, on to the beautiful, if brunt city of Minneapolis. You know, the city that voted to disband it’s police department and replace it with “violence interrupters” what ever that is.

Since this stupid and knee-jerk decision and after the cops had been referred to as gestapo, storm troopers and a host of demeaning names by these elected officials the cops took a much softer approach to fighting crime. This resulted in a skyrocketing crime rate and a bunch of empowered criminals.

Good, solid cops are leaving in droves. The ones straying are looking for other opportunities and are fearful of making arrests. Who wants to be the next george floyd victim.

Now the council members have changed their tune and want the cops to do their jobs. That’s all they WANT to do but must have the political backing of the elected officials. Wouldn’t trust ’em for a second.

Like “Lightning Hopkins” a streetwise philosopher in St. Louis once told me…”What is you gonna do, what is you gonna do.”
