Minneapolis City Council Announces Veto-Proof Push To Disband Police


The Minneapolis City Council announced a veto-proof push to disband the police department in the George Floyd aftermath.

Take the police away and watch the carnage begin. These democrats are delusional and dangerous too!

Nine of the Minneapolis city council’s 12 members appeared with activists at a rally on Sunday and vowed to end policing as the city currently knows it. “It is clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe,” said council president Lisa Bender.

Minneapolis’ left-leaning City Council members on Sunday announced a veto-proof push to disband the Minneapolis police department, ramping up a major conflict inside the city following the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

Many activists have been pushing at least for their cities to defund local police departments, a move many other analysts considered unrealistic. The measure has been the main focus for many people protesting against police brutality.

The city council members spoke at a protest at Powderhorn Park, a neighborhood in Minneapolis. The number of supporters in attendance represented a veto-proof majority to push the measure through, Fox 9 reported.

KARE listed Council President Lisa Bender, VP Andrea Jenkins and Councilmembers Alondra Cano, Jeremiah Ellison, Steve Fletcher, Phillipe Cunningham, Cam Gordon and Jeremy Schroeder as attending the event, most of whom took turns to address the gathered crowd. Ellison is the son of state Attorney General Keith Ellison. Most members of the city council belonged to the Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party. More
