Minneapolis politicians move to scrap city’s police department  

Local Minneapolis city politicos are moving to give voters a chance to pass an ordinance that would give them the opportunity to disband the city’s police force and replace it with a public health and safety department.

The ordinance was created by a left-wing group called the “Yes 4 Minneapolis Committee.” However, they haven’t explained what the duties of the officers will be.

“I am persuaded that this is not going to get better with another two weeks,” said Councilman Steven Fletcher. “I’m persuaded that this language is a version of describing the intention of the petitioner and 20,000 people who signed the petition saying they want to create a significant change and that we should put it on the ballot. So’ I’m going to go ahead and move for approval of language as is,” the politician told the local Fox News affiliate in the already troubled Democratic-run city.

The oversight committee voted 11 to 2 for approval and will seek the approval of the full city council.

If passed by the councilmembers, it will be included as an item on the November election ballot

Meanwhile, federal civil rights investigation against Minneapolis officers is expected to take months to end

“In an effort to reform the department, the city agreed to a court-approved settlement, or “consent decree,” which stipulated hundreds of changes to policies and procedures that were to be made under the supervision of an independent monitor,” according to a Fox News report.
