Minneapolis City Council Complains About Crime Spike Months After Voting To Abolish Police



“We are here today to begin the process of ending the Minneapolis Police Department and creating [a] new transformative model for cultivating safety in Minneapolis,” the joint statement in June said, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

He also decried “a significant increase in extremely dangerous and reckless driving.” 

“This is not new, but it is very concerning in the current context,” she said, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

“How do we get this under control?” she asked.

Andrew Johnson asked Arradondo about an uptick in carjackings in his ward.

“I would appreciate some more information on how we’re addressing the carjackings. There have been a number of them in the community, and they’ve really terrorized residents,” said Johnson.

“How do we stop it?” he asked.

He lamented that the police department has a “no chase policy.”

“How we actually hold these individuals accountable, get them off the streets so they aren’t terrorizing the community?”

The council members did not respond to requests for comment.
