We didn’t actually mean ‘Defund’!
Who could have predicted the war on cops would result in more crime?
The Sunday New York Times landed with a thud on the pavement leading to Stately Blaska Manor, home to the head groundskeeper of the Blaska Policy Werkes.
“America is ungovernable,” it states. Now they tell us! We’re guessing the (failing) New York Times has espied some polling that shows Trump winning. Or that its editors have returned from two days in Chicago, Portland, Baltimore, or Minneapolis, where the George Floyd riots started.
You may remember back in June (seems like years ago!) the Twinkie City’s council unanimously to completely gut its police department and replace it with an undefined “Community Safety and Violence Prevention Department.” This pious progressive posturing was publicly proposed on a Wednesday and passed unanimously on a Friday. No public hearings. That’s life in a Progressive utopia.
Readers will never guess what happened next: “a surge in gun violence.”
⇒ “Police stats shows spread of violent crime across Minneapolis this summer.”
Always the last place you look
Another local news outlet reports: “With violent crime on the rise in Minneapolis alders are now asking Where are the police?”
The meeting was slated as a Minneapolis City Council study session on police reform. But council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, and shootings.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?”
Sound familiar, Mayor Satya?
Progressives speak for the minority community
They just don’t represent them very well. The New York Times attests:
Cathy Spann, a community activist who works in North Minneapolis, which is home to many of the city’s Black residents … is in favor of more police officers. “They didn’t engage Black and brown people,” Ms. Spann said, referring to the City Council members. … Instead you leave this community and me unsafe.”
Now, one of those unanimous Minneapolis council members tells the Times he meant the No Cops legislation only “in spirit.” Another contends it was “up for interpretation.” Oooh!
Blaska’s Thin Blue Bottom Line: The Policy Werkes hereby interprets progressives in every city as “ungovernable.”
