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'

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
By FOX 9 Staff
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"

Maybe.
But if anything could make the overall long-term situation worse, it would be an unfair trial for the officers.
How about convict the LEOs, hustle them out of the courtroom, and "lose them."

They could enter the witness protection program or expatriate; if only to quell further burnin' lootin' mayhem.

Doesn't matter. Remember, the FBI KNEW in Jan 2017 that the "Dossier" was crap, but they continued to use it and the left has been going on TV for the last 4 years pushing the narrative that Trump is "Putin's stooge"...pretty successfully.

Dishonest and a lie.
In the long term this would bad for the situation.
Really?

For literally years, I thought long and hard about the reasons that Bathhouse Barry was allowed to be selected as POTUS, and I concluded it could only have been to mitigate or delay the inevitable riots which we are witnessing today.

But, I suppose that was all part of the BIG PLAN:

Things will only get worse, right?

I can't wait to find out that the 17 year old militia "murderer" was a Q follower...

BLM leader calls for outright violence against police: 'Ready to put these police in the f***ing ground'



How much further is this going to go?


An as-yet identified Black Lives Matter activist and leader has called for the death of police officers as well as for action to burn down the White House.


The incident took place in Washington, D.C., on Saturday night at a Black Lives Matter event as tensions continue to grow across America over police brutality.

What are the details?



Reporter Brendon Leslie shared a now-viral video of the incident on Twitter, captioning it, "A BLM leader is encouraging this crowd of protesters to fight the DC cops on the frontlines. Saying he's 'ready to put them in their graves' — this may lead to another violent night in DC."

In the video, the demonstrator shouted, "I'm at a point where I'm ready to put these police in the f***ing grave! I'm at the point, where, I want to burn the White House down! I want to take it to the senators! I want to take it to the Congress!"

The activist continued, “I want to take the fight to them and at the end of the day, if they won't hear us, we burn them the f* down! I'm one that talk real s*! I talk it in New York and I talk it in D.C. The same way I f* police up in New York, I f* cops up in here in D.C. The same way I bust police in the head in New York, I bust police in the head in D.C.!"

The activist concluded that the movement isn't for the weak or non-committal.

“Now, it's a lot of people and I'm going to be honest, it's a lot of people that's on this front line and one of the things that I always say, 'Don't get on this f*ing front line if you ain't gonna f*ing fight,'" he insisted. “Don't get on this front line if you ain't gonna take no hit. Don't get on this front line when the police f*ing push up, you push back. If you gonna be on this front line, and them racist a, nasty a, punk a, f*ing police is pushing up, you push the f* up!"

Anything else?



The concerning call for violence apparently caught the attention of President Donald Trump, who tweeted about it on Sunday morning.



He wrote, "Disgraceful Anarchists. We are watching them closely, but stupidly protected by the Radical Left Dems!"

This is the man. He appeared in a later video and claimed to have thrown bricks and used a chain to strike DC Police in the legs and head. The chain is visible in photo, hanging from his neck. Calls himself 'General Major Brown', and when asked what he plans to do next, he told the interviewer: "Milwaukee, Chicago, Texas, is what I'm looking at right now."

I notified the DC Police last night, and was told that the FBI is already aware of this person and has seen the videos.

I feel her plight, but I noticed she blames the police when she should be blaming the city council for trying to get rid of the police.


Okay, good people of Minneapolis, vote these City Council members out of office:
They probably can't do that, because that would require they vote for someone with an R by their name, but too many there have been brainwashed that a vote for an R is a vote for racism and are unable to see that their Democrat leadership they keep voting for is the direct cause of the problems they are facing.
Hopefully they do prove me wrong and vote them out of office, but I'm not holding my breath over it.

Yeah, Lady - the cops have been TOLD to "leave 'em alone", and when they DO arrest a perp, the D.A. & Judges release him immediately - and if it becomes "violent", the COP gets accused...
- So don't wonder why they just hang out at Dunkin Donuts...
Vote, but vote WELL... The "causes" are staring you in the face...

It's hard to feel sorry for the people in Minneapolis. They have overwhelmingly approved of the idiots that are destroying their city, yet they cannot see past the end of their noses. Some people just have to be shown like a little pup crapping in the house.

Watched the whole thing.
" Yeah...OK...and !??
( Replace the word Minneapolis with at least dozen others easily )
Nothing like a generation of welfare and degradation of values. Etc
Ehhhh...I gotta go check the fire and see if it is time to put the burgers on.
Incredible times we live in.
