They don’t need more cops.
It doesn’t matter how many arrests you make, if the perp gets out immediately on a plea bargain. They need more prosecutors and prison space, plus ICE becoming more active in deporting bad guys who are not citizens.
Here’s what the Mayor of Minneapolis is offering as a solution to the crime problem.
“Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey is proposing to eliminate cash bail for many low-level offenses in the city, saying the current setup is unfair to low-income people.
Freys 2020 budget includes $100,000 to hire a social worker to create so-called release plans for people arrested on misdemeanor crimes. Frey said he expected the one-year pilot program would help 1,000 people and predicted that it would work so well, it would expand statewide.”
Eventually, someone will go all “Bernie Goetz” on a pack of urban yute ferals, and that alone will do more than the 400 extra cops requested...Not advocating vigilantism, just predicting it...
Just a matter of time, because the Progs won’t listen and can’t learn...
