While appearing on CNN Monday, Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender — the same left-winger who said that not wanting to get robbed is a sign of ‘privilege‘ — told CNN propagandist Chris Cuomo that a “police-free future” is “the goal.” In another appearance, she told Wolf Blitzer that “we don’t have all the answers” on who might respond to reports of violent crime without police.
“When you say you see someday being police-free, that sounds aspirational in terms of a utopian concept where no one is committing any crime,” Cuomo began before admitting there would have to be good men and women ready to step up to keep the community safe.
“I think the idea of having a police-free future is very aspirational and I am willing to stand with community members who are asking us to think of that as the goal,” she said in response.

But she also admitted that she has absolutely no idea how to go about protecting the city:

Response on Twitter was pretty much what you’d expect:
Lisa Bender needs to be stopped! How did she win an election?!

That’s easy — stupid people voted for her while others sat home and didn’t vote.

We tend to agree.
Community Marxist Force is the goal. Make no mistake.

You’re catching on…
“We’re not going to tomorrow all the sudden have nobody for you to call for help. There will be thoughtful and intentional work that’s done, research engagement, learning that happens in a transition that will happen over time,” Cunningham said.
Many people have asked, in this visionary future with no police, “Who do you call when there’s no 911?” One of the speakers on Sunday said it would be family and neighbors.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey issued a statement Sunday addressing the need for reform, but said he doesn’t support disbanding the police department.
“I’ll work relentlessly with Chief [Medaria] Arradondo and alongside community toward deep, structural reform and addressing systemic racism in police culture,” the mayor said. “And we’re ready to dig in and enact more community-led, public safety strategies on behalf of our city. But I do not support abolishing the Minneapolis Police Department.”
It will be interesting to see what happens.
