America was rocked by days of violent protests and riots.
Much of the public worried the country was coming apart at the seams.
And to make matters worse Ilhan Omar celebrated this victory that made every American nervous.
Black Lives Matter activists pushed the idea of “defunding the police” from the radical fringes to the center of mainstream Democrat Party thought.
The Minneapolis City Council hopped on the bandwagon and announced it had a veto proof majority to disband the city’s police department after four officers were arrested and charged with George Floyd’s murder.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported:
In their boldest statement since George Floyd’s killing, nine Minneapolis City Council members told a crowd Sunday that they will “begin the process of ending the Minneapolis Police Department.”
“We recognize that we don’t have all the answers about what a police-free future looks like, but our community does,” they said, reading off a prepared statement. “We’re committed to engaging with every willing community member in the City of Minneapolis over the next year to identify what safety looks like for you.”
Ilhan Omar cheered this development.
Omar – along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – was one of the high-profile elected Democrats who eagerly supported defunding the police.

Criminals love this move.
Disbanding police turns the streets over to violent thugs.
The poor are the ones most likely to be hurt by this move because rich Minneapolis residents will just move to cities and towns that retain their commitment to law and order.
The left-wing agitators in the streets don’t have real and substantive proposed reforms.
They are marching for “social justice.”
And that increasingly is coming to mean fundamentally transforming America into something unrecognizable.
