Minneapolis Shows that Human Nature Never Changes

Well this wasn’t 100 percent predictable or anything. I just recently posted an article I wrote, basically about human nature and how it doesn’t change from year to year, decade to decade and century to century.

And here we are once again, with yet another example of “human nature never changes.”

There will always bad people, or at the very least, otherwise decent people who have a predilection toward the occasional bad thing. And that’s why we have organizations like the police – to keep residents from acting on the urges, as it were. This is a cold hard fact.

Another cold hard fact is that if you remove the obstacle of police, you will naturally have more people doing bad things. This fact is well-established and one which even a child could figure out.

Perhaps they need some children running the city of Minneapolis, rather the current idiots in charge today.

Minneapolis, which vowed to defund police, to spend additional $6.4 million on police after spike in crime

This backfired spectacularly

The Minneapolis City Council’s mission to defund the police has failed spectacularly. Following an increase in crime, Minneapolis has had a change of heart about defunding or abolishing the police. In fact, the city is going to spend millions to beef up its law enforcement.

Nearly two weeks after the death of George Floyd in police custody, the Minneapolis City Council vowed to “dismantle” the city’s police department.

The city council proclaimed that the “Minneapolis Police Department cannot be reformed and will never be accountable for its actions,” thus they would “begin the process of ending the Minneapolis Police Department.”

In June, it was reported that seven MPD officers quit the force, citing a lack of support from city leaders. The trend of Minneapolis Police Department officers quitting or going on extended medical leave only got worse. Now, the MPD only has 638 available officers, 200 fewer than usual. The mass exodus had much to do with the months of anti-police sentiment and riots, which included the ransacking and burning down of the 3rd precinct police station.

With far fewer law enforcement officers, violent crime increased, which included a whopping 537% increase in carjackings during November. Citizens complained to city officials about the longer response times due to a huge reduction in the police force.
