Just three months after voting to dismantle its police department, the Minneapolis City Council complained about the city’s insufficient policing at a meeting on Tuesday.
According to the council members—who in June unanimously passed a measure that would disband the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a “department of community safety and violence prevention”—Minneapolis residents are witnessing an increase in homicides, assaults, carjackings, and other violent crimes.
The article goes on to state the following:
Councilman Jamal Osman said police are leaving 911 calls from his constituents unanswered amid a violent crime spike in the city.
MPR News reported the following:
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?” said Jamal Osman, newly elected council member of Ward 6. He said he’s already been inundated with complaints from residents that calls for police aren’t being answered.
“That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen,” Osman said.
