"Veto-Proof Majority" — Minneapolis City Council Pledges To ‘Dismantle’ Police Department

A majority of the Minneapolis City Council has pledged to “dismantle” the city’s police department as their solution to police violence after George Floyd’s death.

City Council President Lisa Bender, City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins and council members reportedly made the announcement Sunday afternoon at rally, saying they plan to “dismantle” their police department. The money for the police would instead go towards a “community-based public safety model,” according to the local TV station KSTP.

Earlier Sunday morning, Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker said he would not call for the defunding of the police.

Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon, who now leads the left-wing group Demand Justice, tweeted out his support for defunding the police Wednesday. Protesters booed Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey Saturday after he wouldn’t say he would abolish the city’s police department.
