“The REAL Cost Of Defunding The Police”

When the Left decided to parrot the calls of BLM extremists to defund” our police – did any one of them stop to think what it would cost their communities?

When the George Floyd riots started – it didn’t take long for things to get out of hand…

Many think that the reason the riots were so popular” was due to the fact that the COVID pandemic had forced people to stay in their homes – and were ready for any excuse to break those lockdown protocols – and the protests gave them the excuse they were looking for.

Now, I can totally understand why the protests happened…

The visual of a garbage human being kneeling on the neck of another garbage human being is powerful – but that image does not encompass the entirety of law enforcement officers.

However, that is how the Left acted…

That ALL police were the problem.

They said this because they believed what was being said or they don’t have access to or the desire to learn the true statistics that show that what they’re being told simply isn’t true…

Either way, they pushed for defunding the police – with many prominent politicians jumping in – and in some places, they got exactly what they were asking for.

That said, we all know the old adage, Be careful what you wish for… you just might get it”…

So, its too bad that the people of Minneapolis, Minnesota didn’t keep this adage in mind when they fought to defund the police so hard – that their city council went ahead and did it.

What Defunding The Police” Cost the Twin Cities

Do you know what happened?

Crime soared in Minneapolis…

So much so, that murders are on course do hit a 20 year high – but its actually MUCH worse than that – as a new analysis reveals some disturbing trends as the city council prepares to vote on an initiative to do way more than defund” the police – this ballot is voting to ABOLISH the department altogether.

In the year following Floyd’s death, traffic stops in Minneapolis dropped 74 percent, patrols of known problem areas were down 76 percent and stops of suspicious people plunged 75 percent…

All according to an analysis and investigation by Reuters.

Confidential police sources told Reuters that part of the slowdown (and the resulting spike in crime) was due to a staffing shortage due to MANY officers leaving the profession after finding out that leadership doesn’t support them…

But, these dropping numbers are ALSO due to the fact that police are nervous or afraid of become a viral sensation – simply for doing their job – and putting their lives in danger as anti-cop sentiment grows.

One officer said that some of the city’s cops will even deliberately take a longer route than necessary to respond to 911 calls – all in the hopes that whatever the emergency is – will be resolved by the time they arrive.

The safety of Minneapolis citizens is now being compromised due to the tension caused between the police and certain elements of their community…

And that’s not good.

A “Gangsters Paradise”

The declining frequency of police involvement means that cops have fewer chances to stop real criminals – which is why the murder rate in Minneapolis on pace to hit a 20-year high…

Causing some Minneapolis residents to call their city a gangsters paradise.”

THIS is the true price of defunding the police…

Not Black lives saved” (which, by the way, are taken less than White lives, but who cares about statistics) …

Just more people at risk.

If the Minneapolis city council follows through to abolish their police department, you just wait to see what happens to the crime rates in the city.

This is NOT good for the people of the city…

Nor will it be good for America.

We need common sense to reign in that city council meeting – because if it doesn’t – Minneapolis will truly become a criminals paradise.

Good luck, Twin City residents…

You’re going to need it.


Law enforcement officers are never ‘off duty.’ They are dedicated public servants who are sworn to protect public safety at any time and place that the peace is threatened. They need all the help that they can get.” – Barbara Boxe
