Minneapolis City Council members who voted to abolish police are now getting private security protection paid for by taxpayers
It’s Animal Farm time in the People’s Repubic of Minneapolis. Perhaps the most famous line in George Orwell’s classic allegory about pigs leading other farm animals in a revolution against their human masters applies to the City Of Lakes:
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others
The more equal citizens of Minneapolis are members of the city council who voted to abolish the Minneapolis Police Department, but who feel threatened and now have private guards paid for by the city. KMSP-TV Fox 9 reports:
The City of Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day for private security for three council members who have received threats following the police killing of George Floyd, FOX 9 has learned.
I bet there are a lot of Minneapolitans feeling threatened right now. There may well be some residents who have been personally threatened with death if they complained about drug dealers and prostitutes openly plying their trades in front of their houses, or if they resisted muggers in the explosion of violent crime that has followed the police stand down in the face of rioters.
