Car thefts and other robberies have skyrocketed as a result of the “Black Lives Matter” protests. According to police, 20 car thefts and 100 other raids were reported in the third district alone in July. “Some victims were attacked with pepper spray and others were threatened with a gun,” the police said in a warning to the locals. In an era of increasing crime and pressure from many leftists to disempower the police and redefine law enforcement in Democrat-controlled cities, self-help tips in Minneapolis could be a clue to the future.
Minneapolis City Council unanimously voted in June to replace the city’s police force with a “community security and violence prevention division that will be responsible for public security services that prioritize a holistic, public health-based approach.”
The plan must be approved by voters in November. This means that if implemented, the project will mainly affect police resources from next year. However, the city took $ 1.1 million from this year’s police budget last month to fund a Department of Health program that dispatches workers to “violent conflicts” as “agents”. Some Minneapolis residents are already preparing for a deterioration in public security by setting up armed patrols in their neighborhood.
The Minneapolis police were ordered by a court order not to use choke holds, a technique that uses pressure on the target’s neck. In addition, the use of rubber bullets and other measures to control the population must be approved by the police chief. Meanwhile, more than 150 officers filed claims for post-traumatic stress disorder and other injuries inflicted on them during the protests.

On Friday, Seattle City Council members tabled a resolution to create a new security division. This is to replace a large part of the police. In Portland, too, the city government kept the police on a leash, although 15 murders were reported in July. This is the highest number in a month in over three decades. In addition, at least 63 shootings were reported in July, compared to 28 in the same period last year.
