In Minneapolis — where violence has skyrocketed — the City Council is doing its level best to ensure that in the future, all animals are truly equal. Which is why they’ve unanimously voted to dismantle their police department. But, as it happens, some animals really are more equal than the others…because they have taxpayer dollars at their disposal to ensure their continued safety and equality.
To the rest of the people who live and work in the city…good luck.
“My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” Councilmember Andrea Jenkins told Fox 9 News — adding that she had been asking for private security ever since she took office in 2018.
The city has spent $63,000 on rent-a-cops for Jenkins and fellow council members Phillipe Cunningham and Alondra Cano during the last three weeks after the three said they had received threats.
But an MPD spokesperson said that no complaints of threats against them had been filed.
