MPR NEWS — The meeting was slated as a Minneapolis City Council study session on police reform.

But for much of the two-hour meeting, council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults and shootings. And they asked Arradondo what the department is doing about it.

“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?” said Jamal Osman, newly elected council member of Ward 6.  He said he’s already been inundated with complaints from residents that calls for police aren’t being answered.

“That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen,” Osman said. […]

  1. First there are calls to defund the Police , but then , many start whining when … there is no Police !!!

    Are you coming or going ?!?

  2. Regarding the ambush of LA sherriff’s deputies a few days back- I cannot find a mention of the caliber of weapon used. Assuming this isn’t a staged event, and looking at the footage, it looks pretty clear to me that the weapon was small caliber, i.e. a .22LR or .25acp, which have almost no recoil and would be less effective in a through the closed window ambush attempt like this one. One of the officers was even hit in the head allegedly. Higher caliber handguns would most likely penetrate and kill through the door/window at that range. My main point in this comment is that the video clearly looks like a CHILD shooting a small caliber weapon, I’m pretty sure of it…
