There’s a good chance that this will replace the current Minneapolis Police Department, aka MPD, when the DFL City Council dismantles the MPD. According to the article, “If anyone is put in physical danger, they instead vowed to seek help from the American Indian Movement, which was founded in Minneapolis in 1968 to address systemic issues of poverty and police brutality against Native Americans and has been policing their own communities for years.”

Earlier in the article, readers find out that “traffic has reportedly increased in the neighborhood around Powderhorn Park, as drug dealers seek to meet their clientele displaced during the civil unrest, rioting and looting following Floyd’s death at the end of May. At least one person overdosed inside the park and was brought out by an ambulance. Prostitution has also been reported in the area.” Then there’s this:

A progressive Minneapolis neighborhood that pledged not to call the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd is now dealing with a 300-strong homeless encampment in a local park, according to reports.

Thank God that this neighborhood checked their white privilege instead of calling 9-1-1. I’m betting that’s making life easier for the drug dealers. That’s probably high on this neighborhood’s priority list. This is what it’s come to:

According to this segment on KARE11 News, the community organizers demand the city present a plan to help with the homeless problem. The neighborhood invited them into the park. The neighborhood’s invitation makes it the neighborhood’s problem. Frankly, I’d tell them to take a hike.

This is what happens when pacifists and appeasers run a city:

Residents in the neighborhood historically known for its far-left politics and activism intervened last week when park police gave campers 72 hours to dismantle their tents and leave. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board has since passed a resolution not to evict people from any city park and has called for increased funding for longer-term housing for campers, according to the Star Tribune.

“We are not going to kick the can down the road, push people out of public spaces when they have nowhere else to go,” Park Board President Jono Cowgill told the Tribune. “This is not a sustainable, dignified solution for folks who are experiencing homelessness right now, and the state needs to step up.

The state better not step up with funding. Minneapolis created this crisis with its irresponsible policy-making. That’s their problem. It’s one thing to say that the entire state should pay to fix MNLARS. That program serves the entire state. It’s another thing when Minneapolis makes a stupid mistake that affects only them.

Minneapolis created the problem by inviting these vagrants into this park. Then they said that they wouldn’t protect their citizens because they were checking their white privilege at the edge of the park. That’s their right. It’s their city. If they want state money to pay for this problem, then rural taxpayers should get a say in setting Minneapolis’s policies. If Minneapolis Democrats want the money, just not the lecture, that’s fine. They just shouldn’t get the money in that scenario.

PS- Good luck to the Minneapolis DFL. If they’re relying on AIM to protect them, they’d better buy lots of guns.
