The President of Minneapolis City Council said that it “comes from a place of privilege” to call the police during an attempted burglary or break in.
Bender: “Calling The Police May Mean More Harm Is Done”
Speaking to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, Lisa Bender, the Minneapolis City Council President, discussed the recent vote for the city to abolish the police department.
“We have a state action against our police department, which gives us legal mechanisms in the very short term, you know, there is [sic] lessons from all over the country, all over the world that we’re looking to take immediate steps while we work toward building the systems that we would need to imagine that future,” Bender told Camerota.
“Do you understand that the word ‘dismantle’ or ‘police-free’ make some people nervous?” Camerota quizzed Bender. “For instance, what if in the middle of the night, my home is broken into? Who do I call?”
Bender said that she hears that “loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors,” but that this desire to call the police “comes from a place of privilege because 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.”
CAMEROTA: "What if in the middle of the night my home is broken into. Who do I call?"
BENDER: "Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege." pic.twitter.com/WhubQ9yJIf

Minneapolis Is Going To Be Hell
It shouldn’t surprise you that somebody who advocates and enforces such as a crazy idea as literally dismantling the police thinks that it is “privilege” to want to protect yourself and your family from criminal elements! Bender and the entire Minneapolis City Council are literally insane leftists, who would rather you get all your property stolen, assaulted, or even murdered, rather than be “privileged” or accept that the police force needs to exist. This step is going to lead to a complete break down in law and order, and death and destruction.
