BREAKING: Democrats In THIS State Now Trying To DISARM Police Officers

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

The current race for mayor of Minneapolis has turned contentious as the city’s police department continues to address the fall out in yet another police shooting under the leadership of current Mayor Betsy  Hodges.

The most recent shooting of an unarmed Justine Damond by Somali police officer Mohammad Noor after she called 911 to report a potential sexual assault has raised nationwide outrage.

The outrage within the community has risen to such a level it led several Minneapolis citizens to protest Mayor Hodges’ press conference regarding the resignation of former Police Chief Janeé Harteau demanding Mayor Hodges’ resignation as well.

It seems Mayor Hodges is going to have a very tough time with her reelection bid and how the election turns out may well hinge on how candidates intend to address the current issues within the city’s police department.

One of Hodges’ opponents is current State Representative Raymond Dehn.  Dehn is a member of the Democratic Farmer Labor and is now receiving major backlash for his proposed solution to addressing the issue.

Minneapolis is home to the largest concentration of Somali refugees in the U.S. and rather than attempting to address that issue or issues of training within the police department itself, Dehn proposes the much more dramatic and frankly ludicrous idea of disarming the police.

Yes, you read that correctly.  Dehn wants to disarm police of their side arms completely.

Dehn states of his asinine solution –

“I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their cars. I think as we look at how to change policing and how we get officers to not react to use their gun in situations, but learning skills around de-escalation training I think are important.”

He proposes that officers use other means to protect themselves such as a night stick or pepper spray. While Dehn’s thought process that officers need additional training or even to be trained differently is perhaps more on the mark, as evidenced by the most recent events with the shooting of Damond from two rookie officers, disarming police, especially in an urban environment is tantamount to suicide.

Even more frightening for the Minneapolis Police Department?  Mayor Hodges AGREES with Dehn’s proposal!

Mayor Hodges states –

“And if we are going to talk about changes in gun policy, we shouldn’t start with a police officer who is going to be operating in a world with people who have guns.”

Dehn states his no gun proposal is still in the early developmental stages and he wants to sit down with police officers to come up with a strategy that is safe for both the community and the police.

Head of the police union Lt. Bob Kroll states an emphatic NO and reiterates what anyone with common sense already knows – there is NO chance that this idea would fly with ANY cop and he is right.  Frankly, there is no reason it should.

Lt. Kroll states –

“I don’t think the people in Minneapolis are logically ready for anything like this,” said Kroll. “Who would ever do the job of policing again? It’s absolutely an absurd thought.”

Of the several other candidates also running in the mayoral election in Minneapolis all of them agreed that the police department in the city needs reform and further training is needed, however, the remainder of the candidates agreed that stripping police officers’ of their sidearms is asinine and going way too far.
