I searched "Minneapolis",  "police" and "smile" so if it is a dupe it is the other poster's fault for writing a bad title.

Exactly what I would be doing if I was close to a retirement there, they'd have to push me out the door of the station and then I'd have me a spot somewhere to hole up and watch TikTok on my phone in between slow rolling to calls and not being able to find anything. If I was younger in my career there I'd be ejecting the field entirely or looking for a better, quieter gig in a white suburb or something.

They'll probably try and file a grievance against citizens who defend themselves.....
Link Posted: 9/14/2021 7:02:24 PM EDT
as long as they also do that when good people defend themselves with lethal force.

As the song goes(paraphrased)…

Is this what you wanted?
This is what you’re getting

If I was close to retirement, I would do the same. I would just be counting the days till I was done and not be trying too hard.

They wanted less policing and that’s exactly what they are getting.If I was a LEO patrolling these vibrant areas I’d have blinders on.
Link Posted: 9/14/2021 7:04:58 PM EDT
I would wade into the crimes in progress by all the BIPOC criminals only using just enough reasonable force to protect my life and be prosecuted and scapegoated by the racist and corrupt DA who WANTS crime, disorder, and chaos, and lose my job, career, wife, family, and freedom....said no one at MPD...

People get the policing that they deserve.

Is anyone, anywhere, actually surprised?
Link Posted: 9/14/2021 7:15:10 PM EDT
But the black folks aren't being harassed by the police. That is what is important.
Link Posted: 9/14/2021 7:16:39 PM EDT
*shrugs* guess they all better learn to defend themselves
Link Posted: 9/14/2021 7:18:02 PM EDT
I don't feel bad for the blacks who are crying in those areas saying the police don't care, because they were silent last year about the BLM smears / defund the police BS and that makes them complicit. Now that the crime spike is effecting them they want the popo to come back and risk their life trying to arrest criminals and if a criminal is hurt, they will join in demonizing the officer.

Good...let it burn...let the politicians deal with it and dont take the chance of getting hemmed up

they can deny reality exists, but they can not stop reality. Crazy how liberals are so blind, stupid and forcibly abhorrent of actual reality.

The local news spends more time talking about pumpkin spice lattes than they do talking about street crime in Minneapolis. I spent a couple hours in North Minneapolis this afternoon and only saw one marked squad. The vibe is getting weird, in addition to fewer police on the streets there also seems to be far fewer every day people on the street. Mostly panhandlers and wayward urban youth. C-stores and fast food places are almost deserted, so are bus stops.

I think residents are hiding in their bunkers…

They’re just pissed that the LEOs won’t be giving them reasons to loot over another dead thug.

Someone will fill the void. Protection rackets will be the new policing policy for the city.

This is why many decades ago they increased policing in the bad neighborhoods, they yammered for it.

Then they complained because reality is racist.

Have any of the marxist city council members or mayor been voted out of office in Minneapolis?  No?  Even when a city turns to shit, the ignorant residents still continue to elect those who want to destroy it further.  Every single large city in the US is doing the same thing with BIPOC and out and out marxists being elected to office.  The crime rises in direct proportion.  They deserve what they get, but it gets spread around also, especially the suburban areas of those wastelands.

Hire BLM to patrol….

The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'SAVE US!'...and I'll look down and whisper 'No.

Very true, if you want to know how bad it really is this gives some insight (and they only cover a fraction of it)
