Minneapolis Police Warn People to Obey Criminals Amid Crime Surge


Minneapolis Police Department issued some tips for residents to limit their risk of robbery that includes “be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” to robbers, “do not walk alone,” and avoid fighting with criminals, “Do what they say. Your safety is most important.” Crime has skyrocketed in the wake of Black Lives Matter violence. Some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted and threatened with a gun. There have been 288 shooting victims this year. The City Council voted unanimously in June to replace the city’s police department with a ‘department of community safety and violence prevention’. Some residents are adjusting to this by setting up armed neighborhood patrols. -GEG
Embattled Minneapolis police are advising residents on survival skills amid a wave of violent crime, offering such tips as “be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” to robbers and “do not walk alone.”

“Do not argue or fight with the criminal,” police said in a July 28 letter to Third Precinct residents. “Do what they say. Your safety is most important.”

The Third Precinct, southeast of downtown, was one of the areas hardest hit by the protests-turned-riots that broke out following the May 25 killing of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Ensuing demonstrations and riots in the adjoining cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul marked the second-most destructive incident of civil unrest in US history. Police were forced to abandon their Third Precinct headquarters for their own safety on May 28 as rioters pulled down a fence and set the building on fire.

Minneapolis City Government tells residents to be ready to give up their phones and wallets and to always cooperate with criminals:

Carjackings and other robberies have skyrocketed in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests. Police said there were 20 carjackings and 100 other robberies reported in July in the Third Precinct alone. “Some victims have been maced, dragged, assaulted and some threatened with a gun,” police said in the warning to locals.

In an era of rising crime and a push by many on the left to defund police and “reimagine” law enforcement in Democrat-controlled cities, the self-help tips in Minneapolis may be a sign of things to come.

Sounds like we need to start arming and protecting our selves. Hopefully Trump will send in our military to take control soon!

I just don’t understand how any of this is okay with anyone?? That the police, whose job it is to serve and protect, are just telling citizens to “give up”???? WOW! Is the rest of the Country going to go that way, too? God forbid! The people there are wise to arm themselves and protect their neighborhoods. Trying to do just that here, too.
