Radical congresswoman Ilhan Omar and far-left Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison have reportedly decided to back a new ballot measure which would completely destroy the Minneapolis police department.
As Fox News reports:
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison have endorsed a Minneapolis ballot measure that would replace the city’s police department with a new department of public safety.
Question 2 on the Minneapolis ballot for the Nov. 2 election will ask voters if they want the city’s charter to be amended to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a Department of Public Safety, “which could include licensed peace officers (police officers) if necessary, with administrative authority to be consistent with other city departments to fulfill its responsibilities for public safety.”
Omar argued in an op-ed for the Star Tribune that the measure is a necessary step in ending police brutality and making communities safer.
“The truth is the current system hasn’t been serving our city for a long time,” she wrote Tuesday. “I have long said we need a public safety system that is actually rooted in people’s basic human needs.”
Omar and Ellisons announcement came days after other Democrats, such as Amy Klobuchar came out against the radical measure.
