You give the Neo-Marxists an inch, and they’ll take a mile. Earlier this year, after intense lobbying by anti-police activists, the Biden Justice Department announced it was launching a federal investigation into the policing practices in Minneapolis after the death of George Floyd. Yet for the radicals, that wasn’t good enough. Now they want the DOJ to go further.
In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Rep. Ilhan Omar, and 19 other state officials, are demanding that the probe be expanded statewide. “[T]he murder of Mr. Floyd is not unique — it is a pattern among many Minnesota law enforcement agencies,” the letter alleges. Omar even railed against departments’ use of non-lethal crowd-clearing munitions, claiming they were “chemical weapons.” Of course, this anti-police campaign, if successful, will only ensure that crime continues to rise and good officers continue to quit the force or retire early. The Twin Cities is now awash in violent crime, and you can expect this to spill into communities across the state if Omar and her band of vicious leftists have their way.
Every single individual who signed on to this travesty should be driven from office the next time voters get the chance. Commonsense tells us that if we make crime easier to commit, we will get more of it. And that’s exactly what is happening across every city in America with an anti-police agenda.
Here’s the list of the aforementioned officials who lent their name to this smear against law enforcement: (As always, be respectful as you make your voices heard.)
