Minneapolis Police Department Advises Residents to Give In to Criminals

The Minneapolis Police Department is advising residents of the city to “Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” if approached by robbers, and “Do not argue or fight with the criminal. Do as they say.”

The “robbery prevention tips” were circulated by the department and reported by local ABC affiliate KSTP-5. They advise that the city is suffering an increase in robberies and carjackings, especially in the 3rd Precinct — the area of the city in which George Floyd was killed in police custody on Memorial Day, and rioters destroyed police headquarters.

Others posted the tips on social media:

Other cities have reported dramatic increases in crime, including shootings and murders, since the Black Lives Matter protests and riots erupted.
One Minneapolis resident who refused to give in without a fight was 99-year-old Evelyn Johnson, who fought with an intruder: “”He thought he was just going to cover my mouth and smother me, but that didn’t happen. I fought him. We wrestled for quite a while, according to all my bruises,” she told KSTP.

The Democrat-dominated Minneapolis City Council unanimously approved a resolution in June to abolish the police department — much to the chagrin of local leaders in the black community, who spoke out against the plan in July.

The local Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that local black leaders had called the plan to abolish or defund the police “Egregious, grotesque, absurd, crazy, ridiculous.”

Give the liberals that voted for years toward this goal what they want, good and hard and long. I'm sorry for those who aren't on that list that will suffer and die, but the writing was on the wall for years, plenty of time to get yourself out of the line of fire. Get out now or suffer the consequences. It certainly isn't fair but life isn't fair either. I personally would work with others in my county to feed and house any refugees that come our way until they can get on their feet again, using private land money and supplies. It won't be heaven but you will survive.

Vegas will be taking bets. How many body bags needed before they reinstate the police? Probably by morning.

Do these idiots really think people are going to tolerate being tormented by thugs?

One thing that I never seem to understand (well, I actually know why) is why the US is painted as the worst nation ever, the master of slavery for the globe...but those people utterly ignore the record of slavery in nations that aren't spelled "USA" and "UK"? To whit; the native Americans are ALWAYS portrayed as peaceful victims of the "white man"...yet they themselves owned slaves...even before Jamestown was colonized.
Hell, the first slave owner in america was a black man.

Louisville Black Lives Matter Using 'Mafia Tactics' on Hispanic Business Owners



The Louisville cadre of Black Lives Matter activists sent a letter to many downtown businesses demanding they “diversify” their employees. But at least one Cuban-American business owner objected to the threatening tone of the letter and posted his displeasure on Facebook.

Fernando Martinez owns a restaurant group with several Hispanic eateries. He accused BLM of using “mafia tactics” and explained his position.

“There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in,” Martinez wrote in a public Facebook post. “… All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?”

The response by Black Lives Matter was immediate. Several members stood outside one of the business owner’s establishments demonstrating their displeasure and confronting Martinez when he came outside to talk to them.

“If you and I can sit down as human beings that we are without screaming at each other, without calling each other names, without offending each other, we can come to an understanding,” Martinez told one protester after explaining that he felt threatened by the way the demands were delivered to his business. “… How is destroying our business going to bring any justice?”

Not surprisingly, some of the business owners who were recipients of the BLM letter are caving to the pressure. The “demands” include “employ more Black people, purchase more inventory from Black retailers and undergo diversity training” according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Adequately represent the Black population of Louisville by having a minimum of 23% Black staff;

Purchase a minimum of 23% inventory from Black retailers or make a recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to a local Black nonprofit or organization;

Require diversity and inclusion training for all staff members on a bi-annual basis;

And display a visible sign that increases awareness and shows support for the reparations movement.

The protesters claim the business owners benefitted by the “gentrification” of the neighborhood when a public housing project was torn down. So the neighborhood is improved and this is an “injustice”? Sheesh.

One BLM activist, Phelix Crittendon, wasn’t very subtle.

Crittenden said several NuLu business owners have volunteered to sign a contract created by the protesters and are open to discussing their roles in gentrification.

But others have expressed anger and an unwillingness to work together, she said.

“How you respond to this is how people will remember you in this moment,” Crittenden said. “You want to be on the right side of justice at all times.”

And if you refuse to be on the “right side (my side) of justice at all times,”? Nice business you have there. Be a shame if anything happened to it because you weren’t on the “right side of justice at all times.”

Martinez’s pleas for understanding fell on deaf ears. His restaurant has been the target of vandalism and overt threats in recent days. In response, the Hispanic community is rallying around Martinez and offering their support for his resistance.

According to a press release, members of the city’s Cuban community will meet outside the NuLu restaurant at 4 p.m. Sunday to support the immigrant-owned business, which “has been subject to vandalism and extortion in recent days.”

The release states that La Bodeguita de Mima was forced to close July 24 during a demonstration that shut down East Market Street, at which several protesters presented Martinez with the list of demands and said he “better put the letter on the door so your business is not f*cked with.”

The restaurant remained closed the next two days because “management and staff were concerned about safety,” according to the release. “30+ staff members (mostly immigrants) were unable to earn a paycheck.”

That’s what you get for not being on the “right side of justice all the time.”

Home of Minneapolis City Council president vandalized

Updated: August 03, 2020 10:57 PM
Created: August 03, 2020 09:34 PM
The Minneapolis Police Department told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS there is an incident report filed concerning an act of vandalism that occurred at the home of Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender last week.
Bender declined an interview request from KSTP.
According to police, vandals spread construction cones across Bender's front yard. A spray-painted wood board was also cemented to her front porch, which read, "Our streets ...abolish MPD ...fund community."
Three Minneapolis City Council members, Andrea Jenkins, Alondra Cano and Phillipe Cunningham recently received threats that prompted safety concerns, and the city paid for private security companies to provide extra protection.

KSTP

Jenkins told KSTP there have been protests outside the homes of several city council members in recent weeks. After the vandalism at Bender's home, she said she has never seen this type of vitriol aimed at the city council during her 16 years of work at city hall.
"No, I have not seen any council member be concerned about their own personal safety, or the safety of their families," Jenkins said. "And I think a lot of council members are feeling that right now."
Jenkins said she received disturbing threats which prompted the city to ask her if she wanted extra security, and that is when she agreed to the hiring of the private security firm.
"I do not feel as safe in my home as I did just three months ago," Jenkins.
Jenkins said, in her opinion, the stress of COVID-19, the death of George Floyd and debate over the issue of defunding police have created a confluence of anger toward government she has never personally seen before. She added she would like city hall security beefed up.
"Minneapolis City Hall is one of the only governmental buildings in downtown Minneapolis that does not have a security protocol," Jenkins said. "I mean, anyone can walk into our building at any time."

Said EVERYONE in the country.

"Minneapolis City Hall is one of the only governmental buildings in downtown Minneapolis that does not have a security protocol," Jenkins said. "I mean, anyone can walk into our building at any time."
Is she worried about "peaceful protesters"?

You`d be surprised just how safe a .12 gauge shotgun in your home can make you feel !!! :fire::fire::fire:

The council president said that, not that I don't share that feeling. Always good to have protection. Isn't it nice that the council members get tax funded security and asking for more while they are voting to abolish the police department?

Minneapolis’ Frey accuses Walz of dragging feet during early unrest
Mayor Frey said he knew early on that the situation on the ground was dire

Mayor Jacob Frey, the Minneapolis Democrat who faced sharp criticism over his handling of the George Floyd riots in June, on Monday seemed to place much of the blame on Gov. Tim Walz, another Democrat, for failing to act quickly on early requests from the city for state intervention, a report said.


The Minneapolis Star-Tribune published a detailed report that shed light on the interaction between the mayor's office and Walz in the early days of the protest. The governor's office made it clear that National Guard Troops were ready within 24 hours of the mayor's informal request, but Frey seems to be unconvinced that the governor's office took the unfolding crisis as serious as the moment demanded.

The report also shows clear fissures in Frey’s relationship with Walz. Frey told the paper that he remembered a press conference that the governor held outside the smoldering Third Precinct when he called the city’s response to the unrest the night before an “abject failure.”

Frey said watching the press conference was “definitely a hit in the gut.”

“Not just for me, but for so many in our city that were doing everything they could…Everyone was pouring themselves into stemming the violence,” he said.

Video

Frey told the paper that the city was clear that the situation on the ground was dire and unfolding quickly. He told the paper that on May 27, he called the governor and told him to send in the National Guard. Frey recalled Walz saying that he would consider it.

The paper reported that the city released documents last week that seem to back up Frey’s claim. The paper pointed to a text message that Frey’s spokesman sent to fellow employees at the mayor’s office that read, “Mayor just came out and said the chief wants him to call in the national guard to help at Third Precinct. Mayor appears intent on doing.”

The situation in Minneapolis at the time of these messages was deteriorating quickly and even got the attention of President Trump who took to Twitter on May 29 to say that he “can’t stand back & watch this happen."


He continued, “A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.

GEORGE FLOYD ARREST FOOTAGE LEAKED

Stores were vandalized and burned but one of the most widely reported topics was Frey's order to abandon the Third Precinct.

The symbolism of the building cannot outweigh the importance of life, our officers or the public,” he said at the time.

The Star-Tribune reported that it obtained emails and text messages that help paint a clearer picture of what happened during the protests from Wednesday, May 27 and the surrounding days. On May 28, the mayor’s office reportedly wrote once more to request additional support from the state and informed the governor’s office of “widespread looting and arson.”

The governor’s office did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News for comment. Teddy Tschann, a spokesman for Walz, told the paper that the governor is a 24-year veteran of the state’s National Guard and “knows how much planning goes into a successful mission." Tschann’s statement made it seem as though the mayor’s office was not specific with its reporting on the events occurring on the ground.

The paper pointed out that there is also a disagreement between city and state leaders over whether a verbal request for troops qualifies as a formal request.

John Harrington, the public safety commissioner, told the Star-Tribune that the city was not “specific about what they wanted or any details on what the mission would be.”

compelling...who's going to reimburse those cops for their lost (insert losses here)?
Why the taxpayer of course. Certainly not the State AG. They're protected against that sort of thing you know. Then there's the whole raysis thing they hide behind. They have extra layers of protection that the taxpayer doesn't

Gee I am so surprised. Apparently business owners would rather operate in cities that aren't shit holes.

Minneapolis Downtown Council says up to 10,000 jobs could be lost over 'public safety concerns'

Updated: August 06, 2020 10:16 PM
Created: August 06, 2020 09:40 PM
Steve Cramer, president and CEO of the Minneapolis Downtown Council, told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS concerns over public safety and the future of the city's police department have some companies looking to leave downtown.
"Almost overnight the brakes went on in downtown," Cramer said. "The point where it all started to change was the day the City Council announced it supported defunding the police department."
Cramer said in a six-week period from that day there were 45 companies that indicated they were either moving out of downtown or were a business that was no longer moving downtown, and there were 13 companies in that group with 100 or more employees and one with 600.

"It is not a crisis, but it is a trickle right now," said Cramer. "We calculated that would be up to a 10,000-person job loss for downtown if that played out."

Minneapolis City Council member Steve Fletcher represents the downtown area and has not yet returned a message seeking comment on the Downtown Council's assessment.

Kevin Lewis, executive director of the Minneapolis Business Owners and Managers Association, told KSTP the owners and managers of all those high-rises and commercial buildings in downtown have expressed public safety concerns, too.

"I would say they have a heightened awareness of what their tenants are telling them, and that does revolve around public safety," said Lewis.

Lewis added there is some concern right now, too, from investors and owners to the point where some high-end development deals have stalled because of public safety worries and it could amount to hundreds of millions of dollars.

"From an ownership perspective and you have an owner in New York City or Atlanta, or even internationally, they're really somewhat concerned about things that are going on in Minneapolis," Lewis said. "And we don't want that concern. We want investment, and we want economic growth from those investors."

End stage liberalism coming soon to a big city near you.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for lunch and the bill for all ten comes to $100.

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men ate lunch in the restaurant every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve ball.

"Since you are all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily lunch by $20.00." So lunch for the ten men would now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free. But what about the other six men? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his fair share?

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to eat his lunch.

So the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by a higher percentage the poorer he was, to follow the principle of the tax system they had been using, and he proceeded to work out the amounts he suggested that each should now pay.

And so the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% off).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% off).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28% off).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% off).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% off).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% off).
Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to eat lunch for free. But, once outside the bar, the men began to compare the amount they got off.

The sixth man said, "I only got $1 off out of the $20 while the tenth man got $10 off!"

"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only got $1 off, too. It's unfair that he got ten times more benefit than me!"

"That's true!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 off, when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!"

"Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison, "we didn't get anything at all. This new tax system exploits the poor!"

The nine men surrounded the tenth and told him they they were angry that he got so much off while they each got very little.

The next day the tenth man didn't show up for lunch, so the nine sat down and had their lunchs without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money amongst all of them for even half of the bill!

And that is how our tax system works. The people who already pay the highest taxes will naturally get the largest benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start eating overseas, where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible

Seems a bunch of good men need to get together & go to the police chief. Explain either they take care of things right now or they will.
Then just go take their city back if the chief does nothing. Second group "deairs" the mayor. They want war let them fight.

Court filings: Medical examiner thought George Floyd had 'fatal level' of fentanyl in system

Death of George Floyd
FOX 9



(Conga Latin Bistro)

MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - New exhibits filed in the case against the four former Minneapolis Police Officers accused of murdering George Floyd suggest the Hennepin County Medical Examiner thought George Floyd’s fentanyl levels were at a potentially “fatal level”, but his and other medical examiner’s findings showed he died of a combination of factors.

Six pieces of evidence were filed in the case Tuesday one day after former officer Tou Thao’s attorneys requested the release of the full autopsy reports from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, the Armed Forces Medical Examiner and the private medical examiners hired by George Floyd’s family.

The Armed Forces Medical Examiner filed a memorandum agreeing with the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s final conclusion that Floyd's death was a homicide, saying, “His death was caused by the police subdual and restraint in the setting of severe hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, and methamphetamine and fentanyl intoxication.”

However, two other memos filed Tuesday from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office about conversations with Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker paint a different picture about the nature of Floyd’s death.

In one memorandum filed May 26 after a virtual meeting with Baker, the Attorney’s Office said Baker concluded, “The autopsy revealed no physical evidence suggesting that Mr. Floyd died of asphyxiation.” Baker told the attorney his investigation was incomplete pending a toxicology report, however.

The other memorandum filed June 1 by the Attorney’s Office indicated Baker said Floyd’s level of fentanyl was “pretty high,” and a potentially “fatal level.”

"[Dr. Andrew Baker] said that if Mr. Floyd had been found dead in his home (or anywhere else) and there were no other contributing factors he would conclude that it was an overdose death,” the June 1 memo said.

Among the new documents Tuesday was a memorandum outlining the findings from the independent medical examiners hired by the Floyd family, who list Floyd’s cause of death as “traumatic asphyxia due to the compression of his neck and back during restraint by police,” as was evident on bystander videos of the incident.

The memo admits the findings could be incomplete because they were awaiting microscopic slides, pictures and other evidence from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s report.

It no longer matters. The communists have already used this incident as a spark in a tinderbox. The actual facts coming out mean nothing to them now

Right, it's not like anyone can un-burn all those buildings, bring back to life all those dead people, or make any of these white people stop claiming their "blacks on a peaceful protest"
