Minneapolis PD

The Minneapolis city council votes 12-0 to dismantle the police department
with a new kind of public safety model. Is this good or bad? Will other cities follow?

They must believe their current model is not working.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

I don't know what the new model is but I have a feeling Philando Castille, Justine Diamond and George Floyd wouldn't have any complaints.

Well they have the Camden model to follow, and it seems that policing has worked much better there since then.
