They Voted to Defund and Disband Police, Now Wealthy Neighborhoods Are Crowdfunding to Pay for More
Could anyone have predicted that defunding the police in a high-crime area would bring about unpleasant results? I'm pretty sure everyone on the right understood this. The left is slow to come to grips with reality, though. So much so, that I don't think they've actually realized the extent of the damage just yet. Some wealthy neighborhoods in Minneapolis aren't waiting to see just how bad it can get, though.
In a report from the Minnesota Post, wealthier neighborhoods have formed nonprofits and started crowdfunding campaigns to pay for additional police patrols in their areas. These neighborhoods are taking advantage of a program known as "buyback," which pays for officers to work shifts they otherwise wouldn't be working due to budgetary constraints. "Officers working a buyback shift patrol in MPD vehicles, respond to 911 calls, and deter criminals--just as they do in a normal shift."
Wait a second... Police deter criminals... NO WAY!
The Minneapolis Safety Initiative, a 501(c)3 nonprofit started by citizens of these neighborhoods, takes in donations from residents to pay for these extra shifts, which reportedly cost approximately $110 per hour per officer.
Another effort to pay for extra police presence is similarly asking for funds via the website GiveMN.org, but the Mill District Public Safety Project fund has only managed to bring in $4,830 as of writing this.
Minneapolis, you might remember, was the epicenter of the George Floyd riots that burned down parts of the city, caused billions in damages, and inspired politicians to defund the police as a means of placating the violent criminals who didn't much like the police for obvious reasons. We see now just how well that went for them.
Now, citizens are not only paying taxes to the city and state but are shelling out thousands just to get a few more cops on the road. Congratulations, idiots, you voted for this. Have fun!
