The city where the defund the police movement got started was just dealt a crippling blow.
A judge ruled in favor of a lawsuit brought by a conservative group in Minneapolis against the city.
The ruling will now require the city to add more police officers to its roster.
One cannot help but feel empathy for people in Minneapolis that are being held political hostages by the current government.
The death of George Floyd was used to put a demon cloak over the entire department.
The trickle-down effect of this was staggering.
Morale in the department declined, funding was getting reallocated to other areas, mass resignations ensued, and recruitment for new officers was hurt.
Of course, with fewer police on the street, crime rates also soared.
This led to a lawsuit brought by eight individuals associated with a conservative legal group called the Upper Midwest Law Canter.
Don Samuels is one of those plaintiffs, as well as a former city council member.
After the order was issued, Samuels stated, “We have made the emotional appeal.
“We have demonstrated the statistical uptick and now this is the legal action we are exercising because it seems as if the city council cannot hear us and doesn’t feel what we feel.”
The city has not yet responded to the order, but we expect a statement and a possible appeal soon.
