'Defund Police' Council Members Spending $4,500 a Day on Private Security
As I said, when this initiative was launched, defunding the police means that you lose your ability to call the police and be protected.
The nomenklatura will always have private security on the pretext that they're receiving 'death threats' for making everyone's lives a living hell. It's the usual lefty routine. The people at the top will be very well protected, whether it's private security firms, Nation of Islam goons, local gang leaders or some combination of the bunch. You will be left disarmed and unprotected.
That's not a bug. It's a feature.
Three members of the Minneapolis City Council who voted to eliminate the local police force are being protected by a private security detail that costs taxpayers $4,500 a day.
News of the arrangement broke Friday, the same day that the council voted 12-0 to abolish the Minneapolis Police Department in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.
“My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” Councilmember Andrea Jenkins told Fox 9 News — adding that she had been asking for private security ever since she took office in 2018.
Ah yes, that huge contingent of white nationalists in Minneapolis whose political influence has resulted in a city council entirely composed of lefties like Andrea, the first transgender black man to hold public office in the city.
What's the roundup for the number of people in Minneapolis killed by white nationalists vs gang members?
All three have pushed the movement to scrap city police force in favor of “peace officers” and a “holistic, public health-oriented approach” to law enforcement.
Are there "holistic public-health oriented" security guys protecting Andrea?
Why can't he use social workers to keep the white nationalists at bay?
