Two months ago, the Minneapolis City Council voted to eliminate the police department, and over 100 officers have since quit the force. Yesterday, according to Fox News, the Council grilled Police Chief Medaria Arrandondo demanding to know why there’s been a spike in crimes such as “carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and street racing”:
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police?’” said Council Member Jamal Osman, noting that constituents’ calls to the Minneapolis Police Department have gone unanswered. “That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.”
