Gather evidence for the trials

Via Milo we have news confirming it’s time for the adults to take charge (see also here and here):

A group of Minneapolis City Council members have announced their intentions to proceed with disbanding the city’s police force.

Council president Lisa Bender made the announcement at a Black Visions Collective and Reclaim the Block rally at Powderhorn Park Sunday, just blocks from where George Floyd lost his life at the hands of police on May 25.

Bender says that the plan is to “end our city’s toxic relationship with the Minneapolis Police Department.”

“It’s our commitment to end policing as we know it, and recreate systems of public safety that actually keep us safe,” she said.

One could make the case these people have carefully reviewed the history of the police in our country and others, decided the early 1800s skeptics were correct and we should go back to volunteer or privately paid watchmen and inspectors rather than a publicly paid professional organization.

Anyone making such a case would risk a charge of manslaughter as I might laugh myself to death upon hearing such a claim. The political left is composed of some of the most ignorant people I have ever met. Among other topics they appear to have no knowledge of relevant political history and/or how it might apply to the present day. The history of professional police forces? No. There is not any possibility of them taking that into consideration in this decision.

One could make the case these people don’t understand what they are doing. They don’t understand that the police actually provide a justice system for criminals rather than have them exposed to mob justice. Mob justice has no due process. Mob justice has not right to be represented by a lawyer. Mob justice has no consistence and proportionality of sentencing. Mob justice results in false accusations leading to being beaten to death within hours.

Maybe they merely clueless. Assuming no evidence to the contrary, at their trials they probably could claim to be useful idiots and get a lighter sentence.

The case could also be made these people know exactly what they are doing. This reminds me of the Sullivan Act. They are deliberately enabling criminals to prey upon innocent citizens.

You don’t think so? Look at the history of the Sullivan Act in the link above. They knew what they were doing.

As incredible as it might seem, they could be deliberately engineering the end of our constitutional form of government. We have people openly stating this is their goal. While I’m not entirely convinced this is the case for everyone advocating the apparent insanity I am certain it is true for many of them. And because of this people should be gathering the evidence for their trials.

  1. It’s been said many times that the justice system was set up not to protect the citizenry from criminals, but to protect criminals from the citizenry.

    IDK if these people on the city council (except for Jeremiah Ellison the antifa supporting son of antifa supporting AG Kieth Ellison ) actually have a firm concept of what they’re wanting beyond some simple minded ‘anti racist’ feelz.

    I do know they are absolutely clueless about the consequences. There have been articles online about one neighborhood basically forming their own versions of the Grupos de Auto Defensa seen in Mexico, and I think those people will TCOB the hard way.

  2. Should this Defund and Disband movement get traction, invest in firearms and ammunition manufacturers.

    Minneapolis-based PowerLine Blog† concluded as follows: “One thing we can be sure of is that budget priorities will be revised to steer more money to Democratic Party allies: fat cat diversity consultants, well-heeled “community” activists, social workers and the like. The Democrats have no intention of letting a good crisis go to waste.”

  3. For the record, I do not now, or ever advocate vigilante justice. That said, any study of history has shown that whenever the legal justice system is absent, or too corrupt to provide protection to the majority of citizens, the citizenry WILL take “justice” into to their own hands. Whether by government edict, or by making the consequences of enforcing the law too onerous for individual police officers, the effect will be the same. First a dramatic increase in property crime, and violent assault, second, eventually, the unprotected citizens will either leave for a safer area, or will take up arms to defend themselves and their possessions. We are seeing the first unfold in Baltimore, and Chicago, we are seeing the flight from the inner cities by people and companies that can relocate. How long before vigilante committees are formed in major cities, and perhaps, more importantly, who will organize them?

  4. “….eventually, the unprotected citizens will either leave for a safer area, or will take up arms to defend themselves and their possessions.”

    The new locations will erect, first, financial barriers to relocation of undesirables, then physical barriers. Today we have gated communities, soon, gated cities.

    And when that doesn’t work as well as hoped, the next step will be quite a bit more dramatic.

  5. No police. Means no enforcement of their ignorant edicts? How’s that work for the petty tyrant want-to-be’s?
    Cool. Invest in popcorn and watch the problem cure itself. From a safe distance of course. To bad we can’t get them to go after the BATF, and IRS first? That would be fun to watch! And good for the economy to!

  6. Next Minneapolis City council election November 2, 2021.

    The rot should be pretty well established by then.
