Minneapolis City Council Members Enjoy Costly Private Security Detail As Push To "Defund The Police" Continues
A "veto-proof" majority of the Minneapolis City Council recently voted to abolish the city police department. And if it wasn't for the opposition for the city's Democratic mayor, Minneapolis would soon be sending social workers to investigate murder scenes.
But when it comes to their own protection, council members apparently aren't embracing the second amendment, like many other liberals in solid-blue states, and instead are relying on the city to hire expensive round-the-clock security after members of the council received multiple death threats. Currently, the protection is costing taxpayers $4,500 to hire security for three council members.
Over the past three weeks, the bill for the city has come to more than $60,000.

R3 don’t be so close-minded. There’s so many sources you can’t link to around here anymore that sometimes you’re forced to use Fox despite however you may feel about them.

There is a reason a story like that is only found on Fox, R6. Wake up. If you defend or link to Fox, you deserve FF.

As to the substance of the article, SO FUCKING WHAT if the city counsel has to hire security for these members? When you have astroturf vigilantes, Fox propaganda, and the so-called "leader" in DC threatening using the US military against American citizens, it makes sense we'd have to protect the people who are fighting for the American way of life. God Bless the Minneapolis CIty Council.

Poor Minneapolis, your city council members all look like should be pulling the night shift at a convenience store near the bus station. He, she and what the fuck?

The trolls have arrived. Perhaps one of you could explain why in public, Trump refuses testing, tracing, masks, social distancing, and everything else that could have beneficial impact, but privately, everyone he comes into contact with is tested, wears a mask and maintains distance?

It is disgusting how the Minneapolis City Council use taxpayer funds for their own protection. What jerks. Makes them seem like liberal self serving jerks while the rest of the citizenry goes unprotected. Awful message for the average working voter there.

R3 It’s a Fox affiliate not Fox News. They aren’t the same.

R13, there doesn’t have to be one extreme or the other.
Just because one hates the radical left doesn’t mean they love trump.
There is middle ground you know.

This originally appeared in The HIll. Under any other circumstances, the special security would be justifiable. But if they're proposing a world without police, it needs to apply to them, too.

Chop off the radical libs and chops off the radical right wingnuts and you are left with 80% of the country who would do better coming together to form a new political party.
These radical libs are just as frightening as the right wingnuts. Similar in their arrogance and ability to endanger others.

Minneapolis citizens ( or guests ) who cannot allocate themselves tax money for armed guards just have to make due the old fashioned way.

From the photo it seems as if the members are all young, but displaying the behavior that all young people condemn in their elders. Yeah, move over, oldsters - let the new generation take over. BWAAAAH.

I love how they claim "White Nationalists" are threatening them but not one single report of being threatened was ever filed.
