Member Of The US Congress Blames Police For Skyrocketing Crime Rates In Minneapolis

Climbing crime rates have many constituents unhappy. Of course, lawmakers are looking for someone to blame.

Blaming The Officers

Even though Minneapolis has defunded its law enforcement, U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar blames the rise in violent crime on the cities police officers. In a town hall held at Edison High School, Omar reaffirmed her support for a Minneapolis City Charter amendment attempting to get on the November ballot.

It would abolish the Minneapolis police. The ballot measure is being reviewed by the Minnesota Supreme Court to ensure that the wording is clear enough to be voted on.

Omar said that since the system is not working "for the people it's supposed to serve, you have to go back to the drawing board." She also placed the blame for the violent crime surge in the city on the police's shoulders.

"What we must also recognize is that the reduction in policing currently in our city, and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things. One, the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office and to provide the public safety they are owed to the citizens they serve, right? It’s documented. But even before that, it was documented. The Minneapolis Police Department is the most dysfunctional police department, in our state and probably in the country.”

She said that the second reason was a lack of accountability. However, crime rates have been high in the city for quite some time, long before George Floyd's death, and now there are even fewer officers patrolling the streets.

  1. Defund congress. ALL ANTI AMERICANS IN CORRUPT STOLEN GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE FACING FIRING SQUAD. THEY ARE TRAITORS. TREASON IS PUNISHABLE BY DEATH. NO EXCEPTIONS. NO MERCY. NO DEALS. LINE UP. HAVE THE DEFUNDED POLICE MAN THE FIREARMS.

    1. Your right Fred. All of Congress should be defunded, and fired. Even republicans. They all talk a good game, but sit back and do nothing to solve problems. Therefore they are part of the problem.

    2. We, all good Americans, should overthrow our worthless "government" because it is WORTHLESS. Our "government" allowed Biden to remain in office AFTER IT WAS KNOWN HE WAS ILLEGALLY PUT IN OFFICE. HOW GUTLESS OUR "GOVERNMENT" IS!!! It seems WE REAL AMERICANS MUST SAVE OUR NATION SINCE OUR GOVERNMENT IS TOO WORTHLESS TO SAVE IT.

      1. What do you expect from a Democratic Congress, They only want to be as close to a Communist state as possable

        1. They want a total socialist state or 100% communism, not close but the whole basket of government control from cradle to grave control.

    3. All the filthy America hating politicians should have their pay and perks suspended till they fix the problem they actually deliberately created !
      Enough lies and divisiveness - it is our tax money they are swimming in - time to stop the money flow and make them pay for their destruction of our country ! Those “immigrants “ who came from hell holes are actually doing their best to make our country resemble that hell hole ! They do not belong in our government period !

      1. People should refuse to pay taxes for all these illegals and other crap these Demon Rats are coming up with. There
        Are not enough jails to hold the majority of the country.

    4. No not firing squads but instead drop them in the Louisiana swamps and marshes with nothing , not even clothes and let the gators , snakes and other critters feed . OHHH also pray the animals do not affect Our critters with their diseases which are plenty . And if they are seen outside the area have bounties on them of about $50 because that is all they are worth .

  2. "Accountability " goes also for Politicians and others in elected offices. That door swings Both ways. And "Consequences " have a Great Deal to do with the Crime Rate. If a criminal gets a mild scolding and a slap on the wrist for Breaking and Entering, nothing has happened to make them Not do the same crime again! And they Will Escalate! Some get off on the Thrill of flaunting the Laws! Add to the fact that the Consequences are mild just adds to the Thrill. You have just given the Criminal MORE RIGHTS than their Victims! If you have worked your butt off to buy something Nice for your family, it HURTS to have some Lazy Entitled Jerk to simply walk in and Steal what you Worked for! There needs to be "Accountability " on the criminals too!

    1. Democrats prove over and over they are the Party of Criminals, by Criminals, for Criminals. From the highest levels, by having CONVICTED FELON George Soros as their spiritual and financial guru, to hiring the slimiest career criminals, like Dyjuan Tatro, a New York career criminal with a history of murder, drug dealing, slashing people with edged weapons, etc. as a SENIOR DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE ADVISOR!!! Notice the rabble goes nuts when a criminal is killed, but when a decent, law-abiding employed Black Mother, Miriam Carey, or a White, law-abiding Veteran like Ashli Babbit are MURDERED by Capitol Police, they are all silent as lambs.

    1. Patrick, the reason is, all those people are like her! She is an evil useless piece of trash who left her country because she was on their hit list... she is so ignorant that she can't see the country she lives in gives her freedom to condemn it!!... she doesn't deserve to be here!!

      1. They were brought here under Obama to destroy us from within. Take away their citizenship papers deport them home.

      1. Is that not the definition of being a democRAT.
        Vote for me & I will give you stuff that is not mine to give & make sure someone else pays the bill.

    2. Biggest problem is Americans have stopped paying attention to government and what they're doing. We the People need to wake up and start voicing our dislike for they're actions.

      1. I have! After the Afghanistan disaster, I put a a huge sign in my front window that says F*** Joe Biden!!! It's not coming down until my President Trump is back in the White House!! I live in a red state so most people love it. Although we have a couple of California transplants who scowl at me. But my other neighbors love it and have stopped to tell me and the street cleaner actually stopped and took a picture!! Nobody in Idaho has a single nice thing to say about Biden!

      1. The Communist directed media is brainwashing the sheep. Many dumb people have no idea what is really taking place, and don't realize the Democratic Party are Globalista who model after Communist China.

    3. They have been brainwashed by the myriad echoing democrats surrounding or supporting our bumbling senile president(elect?).

  3. Just how stupid are these people who live in her city? She wants less police, but also wants less crime. I guess she is going to demand unicorns return to her city also. Considering she got here by fraud, maybe it's time to strip her of her citizenship and return her to the hell hole she came from and learn to curb her tongue.

    1. She is a treasonous witch married her brother gave hin millions of our money. Send this witch back to Somolia along with all Obama gave citizenship to.

  4. I suggest she move back to that beautiful
    country of Somalia where their law and order is highly respected and the citizens are at peace knowing they are free and protected. With her knowledge she could be President.

  5. This radical Jezebel should be put on a plane to Antarctica forced to wear shorts and sneakers, pushed out of the plane center continent in -90 degrees and forced to fight for her own life.

  6. Why has not Immigration expelled her from this country for Marring her brother to get him here? SHE is the criminal here!

  7. THIS SO CALLED TERRORIST NEEDS TO BE REMOVED OR PUT IN PRISON FOR TREASON...PERIOD
    NOTHING MORE TO SAY......SHE IS SATAN'S DEMON

  8. Don't just defund Congress but also each state that wants to define law enforcement. Defund NATO, foreign aid. Why are we supporting China, N. Korea and other communist states?

  9. The problem is not Omar - the problem is those voters who elected that charter member of the squid. Send her to the Taliban - I am sure that they would treat her very well.

    1. Don't run her out of town. Strip her naked, tie her hands, smear pork fat all over her, put a pigs foot in her mouth, tattoo "fuck Allah" on her forehead, then drop her in the middle of Dearbornistan, MI.
      PS. Be sure to record the whole thing, for AMERICA'S Funniest Videos. Just a thought. lol

  10. Maybe "Omar" wants to establish a new "Gestapo Form" of people CONTROL... This IDIOT is out to destroy the USA and take away our "FREEDOM"!!!!!!!!

  11. Put those members of congress on alert: police, fire, emt are ALL BRETHREN. YOU SHIT ON ONE YOU SHIT ON ALL. ALL SUPPORTING THESE VILE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS MUST BE DENIED ALL EMERGENCY SERVICES. DOMNOT RESPOND TO ANY 911 CALLS TO THESE VILE ENEMIES. BE A CRYING SHAME IF THEIR POWER AND WATER GO OUT, AND THEN THEIR HOMES MYSTERIOUSLY GO UP IN FLAMES. BE EVEN “WORSE?” IF THEY WERE HOPELESSLY LOCKED INSIDE.

  12. First of all Ilhan Omar has shown her true colors over and over... Being married and then marring her brother to allow him to stay in the country. And having a b/f under which she was diverting campaign funds to her then b/f business are issues that go against laws in this country.
    Add to it her anti American Roderick and her pro Islamic traditions she wants in this country like flogging... And who knows what else,

    She should have been pulled from her seat and brought up on charges for adultery, theft, and terrorist actions. She belongs on jail or deported back to Samolia...

  13. You stupid fucking two-faced bitch. You are trying to take the focus away from you and your kind, (I'm talking about politicians) who are publicly & deliberately violating the "Oath of Office" that you took, by pointing the finger at everybody else. You people are just begging to have a set of gallows (I personally would rather they be GILLOTINES) erected on the capital steps for your PUBLIC EXECUTIONS.
    I FOR ONE WOULD BE IN THE CROWD CHEERING . ESPECIALY WHEN THEY MARCHED YOUR ASS UP THERE.....
    I wish that the Washington, DC. police force would protest by staging a 24 hour walk off. If you politicians won't obey the law, then why should we? You people want anarchy. That would be the perfect way to show you exactly what it is. It would be OPEN SEASON on politicians. Hip Hip Hooray.

  14. Under this administration , if you found and proved treason , nothing would be done . It as Biden says a part of the process ! Ohmar is anti American she proves regularly while being supported by the very system she abhors. A supposed leader being a member of congress who couldn’t lead a horse to water. But wants to advise the world on how to run a police department . An embarrassment to the people she represents and idoubt they even care, if they know .

  15. In another article same subject Omar referred to the USA as "our country". She hates this country and is doing everything she can to hurt it. It is not nor will ever be her country and as far as the police she is one of the leaders that ranted to defund the police. She deserves to lose her citizenship and be shipped back to Yemen!!

  16. Omar has been dysfunctional and a traitor since the day she started in office. We should DEFUND AND DEPORT HER AND THE ENTIRE SQUAD. They are a dirty stain on the history and future for the US.

  17. Has it occured to anyone how thus dizzy ingrate and AOC could be so tight. Birds if a feather and in this case their brains are abit the size if a pea. They are spoiled,ungrateful children totally ill equip to participate in running our great country. I'm not sure they are smart enough to vote. Everything in their lives is all about them. I for one have had enough. We need the biggest shake up in DC we have ever seen. And I don't care what part they bow to. The ignorant and the the geriatric crowd needs to go.

  18. Send her back to Somilia to face their justice. Strip citizenship confiscate allmoneies found . Deport the witch NOW.

  19. Tell this twit it's her defunding of the police that is causing the criminals to take over . Send her back to Somolia to pay for her crimes.
