Minneapolis Apparently Wants Crime Victims to Cooperate With Criminals
Minneapolis is seemingly telling its residents “you’re on your own.”
According to theBlaze, the Minneapolis City Government has written and circulated a letter telling residents what to do if confronted by a carjacker or robber, which states that victims should cooperate and cede their property.
In a section of the letter entitled “Robbery Prevention Tips,” the letter says that residents should “[B]e prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet,” and, if confronted by a robber, “do as they say.”
According to local news, there has been an increase in crime alerts in the 3rd Precinct, covering south Minneapolis, and the 5th Precinct, covering the southwest of the city. Police say that in the 3rd Precinct, there has been an increase in robberies and carjackings, with cellphones, purses, and vehicles among the targets. July alone saw 100 robberies and 20 carjackings in the 3rd Precinct.
And yet, the City Council still wants to defund the police department. Because having safe streets is racist, or something.
