They done did it

Minneapolis abolishes the Minneapolis Police Department:
Minneapolis City Council votes unanimously for proposal that could replace Police Department

Less than three weeks after they promised to begin work on “ending” the Minneapolis Police Department, some City Council members pushed forward a new vision for law enforcement Friday that could still include officers on the streets.

The council voted unanimously to advance a proposal that would create a new Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention. Within that, the city could create a division that includes “licensed peace officers,” though it would not be required to do so.

It’s unclear how many, if any, officers would continue to be employed by the city if the proposal passes.

Council Member Cam Gordon said it’s consistent with the pledge from council members to fundamentally alter local policing in the wake of George Floyd’s killing by Minneapolis officers.

“Those things that we called the police department are gone,” Gordon said. “Certainly, there is a provision in here that would allow this council or future councils to maintain a Division of Law Enforcement Services, but I think what we need to do is have that possibility there and talk to people about what the future should look like.”
It's amusing to see that they're already trying to go back on their proposal, and the Star Tribune is attempting to give them cover to do so. This is the inevitable problem when parasites try to rule. They have absolutely no ability to actually do anything except subvert and undermine.

That's why their periods of "rule" tend to be more akin to interregnums.

What Minneapolis will end up with, of course, is the same MPD by another name. Because word play is the only play in the lunatic playbook.

"A "veto-proof" majority of the Minneapolis City Council recently voted to abolish the city police department. And if it wasn't for the opposition for the city's Democratic mayor, Minneapolis would soon be sending social workers to investigate murder scenes.

But when it comes to their own protection, council members apparently aren't embracing the second amendment, like many other liberals in solid-blue states, and instead are relying on the city to hire expensive round-the-clock security after members of the council received multiple death threats. Currently, the protection is costing taxpayers $4,500 to hire security for three council members.

Over the past three weeks, the bill for the city has come to more than $60,000." - ZH

Right. I was talking to someone today about the CHAZ, and he noted that their liberal utopia almost immediately had armed men walking around and a committee forming to make and enforce rules--police and a government. I said sure, except that they won't have anything like a constitution or a heritage of common law, so the laws will be whatever the committee feels like at any given time and applied at the whim of their enforcers.

Ooo touchy touchy. Community police is undefined, and adjustable over time. They'll do whatever is worst for Americans at every phase of the browning. Community police may mean lawlessness until whites are gone. Then it may mean Somalis in machine gun trucks.

I sure as hell don't feel sorry for them. They have failed to police themselves for powertrippers and other psychopaths for decades, and force out anybody who does. There's a reason why every internal affairs department is absolutely loathed by the rest of the force. IA are the only honorable ones.

I think you might see the opposite problem. The media doesn't care about normal Americans, but they'll fight like hell to suppress stories about people of Merit ordering the "darkies" killed. Things will leak out, and then the Merit List is going to get a good bit shorter.

Transferring tax money from a male dominated and disproportionately White profession to air conditioned government office jobs for women of color is the primary goal.

After wrecking another restroom commode, Tamika is interrupted from her Netflix program to receive a crisis call from Excretia Pickens.

Excretia's house was robbed by scary White men.
"Daes be a bunch of nazis" Exretia shreiks while hysterically crying.
Excretia informs Tamika that $5000 of her jewelry was stolen.

Tamika exchanges a knowing glance at Excretia and tells her that she can only receive $2000 in compensation.

After Tamika stops the video recording she shares a laugh with Excretia.

That Powderhorn Park tent city isn't going to fare too well when the temp drops to -25F this winter after everyone's had half a year to arm themselves heavily.

(How this all plays out largely depends upon whether or not the city and the state are bailed out, permitting the charades to continue, or forced into bankruptcy cramdown turning off the welfare spigots -- which will have a large percentage of riffraff on the first buses heading south and east.)

Actually no police would solve the problem quite quickly. One of the biggest reasons whites fail to shoot the apes making their lives miserable is fear of being arrested.

When people reject the hierarchy of being what else is there but to think you are a little oppressed lump of bouncing particles that is controlled by your passions. Rejection of any authority and history comes natural for these people. Alex Rosenberg's "atheist guide to reality" is at least honest about the logical outcome of this metaphysical system. These people are also easily manipulated so of course those in power (you can be sure they believe in some form of hierarchy of being, albeit evil) will push these idiotic metaphysical narratives onto people so they can be easily manipulated and enslaved by their passions.

The hierarchy of being isn't mainstream anymore (thanks French revolution, scientism, evolutionism etc.) but it isn't defeated and some good work is being done. David Oderberg is trying to reintroduce the Hierarchy of Being into mainstream thought.

You're on the right track.

The old cops, enforcers for the Old Guard, will be replaced by new cops, enforcers for the New Guard. New grifts, new grifters, new protected classes, no more pretending about law and order. Expect it to look much more like the situation in the local politicians' old country, so much more like Africa or Columbia or Venezuela.

It won't be ineffectual social workers.

The good news is that the Normies are going to find it increasingly difficult to pretend that Officer Friendly is their friend. Right now the Normies get all fussy if you suggest that the cops are their enemy. As the new cops abandon the trappings of the old cops, a lot of that conditioning is going to fall away.

1. Somalis in Minneapolis are already tight and insular, and their areas are sharia areas. They had no need for this to happen to be sharia-happy. This whole mess isn't a Somali thing - it's the American blacks.

2. What we're seeing is a game of chicken between the council and the cops' union. There are many provisions in the current contract that can't be violated which the council really wants to violate and the union has no reason to contract away - so this is "agree to re-open the contract or we lay off lots of you."

3. It's tough to find a store with a stocked gun, or AR lower, anywhere near the Twin Cities. Doesn't help that the internet sellers are out of everything too.
