The Hennepin County District Court judge ordered the Minneapolis City Council and Mayor Jacob Frey to “immediately take any and all necessary action to ensure that they fund a police force.”

The judge gave the city until June 30, 2022, to employ at least 730 sworn police officers. They are projected to have only 669 officers after an “exodus” through retirement, resignations, and officers taking extended leave.

A majority of Minneapolis City Council members committed to defunding the police force weeks after the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police in May 2020.

Although violent crime spiked in the city, Mayor Frey agreed to cut $8 million from the police force and reroute the money to violence prevention and mental health response initiatives.

You wouldn’t think a judge would have to order a city to perform one of its most basic functions.

And all this is happening as some Democrats insist no one is trying to defund police.
