Minneapolis City Council President: Calling Police In An Emergency ‘Comes From A Place Of Privilege’ (VIDEO)

Something insane is unfolding in the city of Minneapolis.

The city council there is actually entertaining the idea of dismantling the police department.

The president of the city council went on CNN this week and was asked what people would do if they were confronted by a robber in their home or something like that.

Her answer was stunningly stupid.

Minneapolis City Council president Lisa Bender on Monday defended the council’s plan to phase out the police department by saying she can imagine a future without police, characterizing concerns over safety as “privilege.”

“A lot of us were asked if we could imagine a future without police back in 2017 when we were running for office. And I answered yes to that question,” Bender said on CNN’s New Day.

Bender said she understood concerns about the prospect of having no law enforcement to call for safety, but she argued such concerns should not make a difference.

“I know that that comes from a place of privilege,” Bender said when asked who citizens should call if they are the victim of a crime. “For those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.”

First, she didn’t really answer the question. Second, these people are not living in reality.

Minneapolis needs new leadership. Immediately.
