We said that there would be hell to pay for Derek Chauvin.
No one wants to be a police officer in Minneapolis anymore. Murderapolis is on track to have its most violent year ever. Black criminals have been emboldened by the retreat of the police. The rest of society is left to deal with the fallout and the consequences, but the people who live in the closest proximity to the criminals in these big cities are the ones who pay the heaviest price.
Those of us who don’t even live in these places are accused of “white supremacy” and systematic racism and scapegoated for it. We watch the local news on the internet and feel a mixture of pity and contempt for the people who actually control these police departments and support the “Black Lives Matter” movement in their own cities. Ultimately, we look at it as their own affair and keep our distance. When I hear shots in my neighborhood, I don’t have to worry about anything.
Note: Murderapolis is holding a vote on abolishing the police in November.
