Ilhan Omar: It’s time to disband the Minneapolis Police Department

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) on Friday called for the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) to be disbanded and for the city to ’reimagine’ public safety in the wake of death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests across the US. ’The MPD has proven themselves beyond reform,’ Omar wrote on social media. On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council will vote on whether to make radical changes to the MPD.

This is like taking a major organ out of the body because it isn't working perfectly. The consequences are radically unpredictable. It may be worthy of investigation. But start with small pilot groups and see how it goes. Don't just go ripping apart pillars of society in a fit of woke righteousness. Think things are bad with the police? See what things are like when citizens start inflicting ' justice' with baseball bats. There is a reason we have professional law enforcement. We need to try all manner of experiments. But this needs to be done rationally and carefully. Not in a big rush because we are all uncomfortable and feeling bullied.

She needs to appease radical extremists and doesn't care about the plebs. Ilhan Omar would keep her own security escort.
