Minneapolis voters reject police department replacement with public safety agency

Voters in Minneapolis on Tuesday rejected replacing the police department with a public safety agency.

This is the beginning of the great “Wokelash” – voters are sick and tired of wakeism, canceling culture, CRT, and the Democrats’ defund the police movement.

Fox9 reported:

Voters in Minneapolis rejected a proposed charter amendment that would have eliminated the city’s police department and replaced it with a public safety agency.

57 percent of voters voted “no” to 43 percent for “yes” to a ballot question, asking whether the city charter should be amended to remove the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a Department of Public Safety. The proposed charter amendment would have eliminated the minimum police personnel requirement as well as the post of police chief.

The amendment to the charter was drafted in response to calls to dissolve or dismantle the police department following the assassination of George Floyd in May 2020. It received national attention and was fought in the courts. Millions of dollars were raised and spent by both supporters and opponents of the proposed charter amendment leading up to election day.

The Minnesota Police and Peacekeepers Association, which represents more than 10,000 law enforcers, exploded in a statement Tuesday night.
