With Democrat city mayors denouncing their own police forces, hamstringing police efforts to fight crime and planning to defund police, it should come as no surprise that this has resulted in a dramatic increase in criminal activity in these cities.
This is what has been happening in Minneapolis and instead of telling residents, that the city will be increasing police to protect them, it warned taxpayers that they are on their own. The letter also added it would also be best if they complied with the criminals.
The Blaze reports:
The Minneapolis City Government has circulated a letter informing residents what to do if they are targeted by carjackers or robbers. The letter, addressed to residents living in the city’s 3rd precinct, was written July 28.
“Robberies and Carjacking’s have increased in our precinct. Cell phones, purses, and vehicles are being targeted. Some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted, and threatened with a gun,” the letter states.
“100 Robberies and 20 Carjackings have been reported to the 3rd Precinct Police in July alone,” the letter adds.
However, instead of committing to increase police activity in areas plagued by violent crime, the letter goes on to suggest that residents protect themselves — and if they are targeted by violent criminals, to surrender their property.
And The Blaze adds that the number of shootings in the cities has tripled since the protests started in late May and Minneapolis city council’s decision to cut funding to its police department.
