Brian Minneapolis Committee, Brian Minneapolis Committee, approved funding to bring in outside police officers amid a spike in violent crime and a shortage of officers. The citys police chief says the assistance is not optional. At this point I have seventy four people who are no longer alive in this city because they have been killed. I have got almost five hundred people who have been shot and wounded in this city. We can talk about reimagining, policing, im talking about what is necessary today in this city, and we need extra resources. Brian, you hear his frustration, the birthplace of defund, the police, the move comes months after the majority of the Minneapolis City Council, Plekd to defund the police after the death of George Floyd, here to weigh in Minnesota Native Fox AMP friends, weekend CO host PETE Hegseth PETE. We could have predicted this, I feel so bad. The officers have to go through this utterly embarrassing and predict being one brain cell to know. If you remove police, you will create space for crime
b. If you demoralize police, by telling them they are the bad guys, create an environment. Why in the world take one risk? I recently spoke to a most police officer. If you are able to get out guys are getting out if you are out on your shift. Dont take any aggressive action. No way you sit in your parole car and wait to get called when you go, you go there and be as cautious as possible. Thats, not a recipe of getting in front of crime. The mayor there should be utterly embarrassed. The left should be ashamed for this. This is exactly what we know happenings when you throw police under the bulls, they are saying: hey. We are out Brian look at some of these stats arson up. Seventy six percent assaults. Twenty four percent murders up. Eighty seven percent robberies up thirty: seven percent, its a desperate cry for help in New York. They have had two thousand four hundred retirees thats up twenty five percent year to year. They cant get enough people to be cops. Now they are looking to save money, while people are bobbing and weaving to avoid the bullets.
