...after their police force is abolished?...or at a minimum defunded significantly?
Yeah, this is the most ridiculous thing ever. Good luck Minneapolis.
Exactly, I feel bad for the business owners in Minneapolis and the state for that matter. I am a huge KC Royals fan and wanted to catch a game up there in the near future. Now, I don't care if I ever step foot in that state again.Imagine you own some cabins by a cool lake and depend almost entirely on vacation season/tourists to make it, are people going to want to travel to a state where they can be the target of a crime and expect no police protection? Of course not. Slowly but surely, the undesirables will take over, and good people will leave or never visit in the first place, business's will go belly up or just shut their doors after they are held up, and no police are there to help. Is Minnesota going to turn over the duty to maintain law and order to Antifa? I feel like I wake up smack dab in the middle of the Twilight Zone black and white TV show sometimes.
Camden seems to have had successI’m a Twins fan too and this pisses me off, who ever heard of disband or underfund a police department and still keep a cilvil city without any law and order..
It's been done before. Camden, New Jersey and Compton, California. There's not going to be "no police" it's about defunding a corrupt and out of control force. Get a grip you guys, there will be law enforcement.I’m a Twins fan too and this pisses me off, who ever heard of disband or underfund a police department and still keep a cilvil city without any law and order..
Glad you guys made it in...finally some sense of logic.It's been done before. Camden, New Jersey and Compton, California. There's not going to be "no police" it's about defunding a corrupt and out of control force. Get a grip you guys, there will be law enforcement.
They will continue to fund all revenue generating police activities.Just think of everyday driving with no one to enforce the law. How many speeders, people running lights, and worse of all impaired drivers. It's not good, once that first domino falls, look out. The Purge!
good article and all but toward the bottom of the city lab article it really speaks more of the truth, talking about how yes the reform may help but the data is too young, meaning there isn’t a long enough sample size... the results may be just a blip on the radar...
Sort of like just reading the headlines in these articles?Nope, I will be too busy jumping to irrational conclusions and reading only headlines.
sadly, I do not. this is the strike that was imminent until a new CBA, anyway, and you can see why with every slap in the face offer the owners make to the players.Think there will be ebaevall this year? I cannot believe they can't figure this out. They should be playing now
What I read here is they break the union, let the existing cops go, hire more cops than they had before and pay them less. If that works for them, great. I am a little skeptical though.
