“Murderapolis”: Ground Zero For ‘Defund The Police’ Movement Now Suffering Horrendous Crime Wave

Zero Hedge | Sept. 26, 2022

In the mid-1990s, the murder rate was so high in Minneapolis that it earned the nickname, “Murderapolis.”

Now, more than two years after the Democrat stronghold turned into ground zero for the ‘defund the police’ movement after the murder of George Floyd, Murderopolis is back.

In a kind of Newtonian response, the city became the epicenter of the culturally seismic “Defund the Police” movement. But that progressive local effort fizzled with a decisive referendum last November.

Now, with its police department under investigation by the Department of Justice, the city of 425,000 is trying to find a way forward amid a period of heightened crime that began shortly after Floyd’s death. –CNN

  1. Neither ‘black’ nor ‘African-American’ appears anywhere in the ZH article — yet without a doubt nearly every single homicide in greater Minneapolis is committed by a ‘person of color’, the vast majority of those by Blacks.

    Such is the state of even dissident ‘journalism’ in the US today.
