Minneapolis Police Department to Residents Confronted by Criminals: ‘Do as they say’

The Minneapolis Police Department is advising residents to obey criminals and “Do as they say.”

Minneapolis is experiencing a surge in violence since the death of George Floyd earlier this year while in police custody.

Following Floyd’s death, protests escalated to riots resulting in the destruction of property and unsafe streets.

Criminal activity in Minneapolis is escalating and the response time from the police has slowed down or is nonexistent.

In response to the rise in crime, the Minneapolis Police Department issued suggestions to citizens on how to be prepared if confronted by criminals including telling them to “Do as they say.”

Alpha News MN reports:

“Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet,” the police said in their email, a copy of which was obtained by Alpha News. The email said citizens should listen to criminals and “do as they say.”

Making matters worse, the Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously last month to defund and disband the police department.

Meanwhile, several Minneapolis City Council members hired private security at tax-payer expense reported at $4,500 a day.

The hypocrisy of Minneapolis City Council members all in to defund and disband the police while making sure they are safe with private security at the tax-payer’s expense is totally outrageous.

Citizens of Minneapolis are essentially on their own to obey criminals and the actions by their city council is making the streets dangerous.

The people of Minneapolis need to stand up and vote the city council out of office.
