The Democrat-led city council of Minneapolis has passed a resolution to replace their police force with a "community-led public safety system." The unanimous vote, aimed at transforming what the mayor calls "a structurally racist system," occurred on Friday. Reuters news service reports:
"According to the resolution, the city council will begin a year-long process of engaging 'with every willing community member in Minneapolis' to come up with a new public safety model."
The "Defund the Police" movement continues to gain support from the far Left. But an ABC News-Ipsos poll released on Friday indicates nearly two-thirds (64%) of all Americans reject the idea.

One week ago, "DEFUND THE POLICE!" was an impossibly radical idea. But the movement is quickly gaining momentum among Democrats, liberals and so-called progressives.
Do you want to stand with officers on the national, state and community levels to reject this dangerous agenda? Do you want to prevent local governments from disbanding their police departments, stripping hundreds of millions of dollars from law-enforcement budgets, and re-allocating those fund to "community-outreach programs" and social workers?

P.S. Again, radicals are moving rapidly to defund the police. What started as peaceful protests against police brutality has turned into an unsafe, unrealistic and far-Left movement to erase our nation's "Thin Blue Line." Hundreds of thousands of brave, professional, moral and dedicated men and women put their lives on the line every day to stop and prevent crime.
