Quote:
A Minneapolis commission scuttled any chance of letting voters decide in November whether to replace the city’s Police Department, dealing a setback to the City Council’s signature effort to overhaul public safety in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.

The Minneapolis Charter Commission, a state agency that oversees the city charter and whose members are appointed by a district court judge, voted 10 to 5 to continue to study the amendment for another 90 days as allowed under state law, missing the deadline for a November vote.

“I think we should take extra time,” said Barry Clegg, chairman of the Minneapolis Charter Commission, in an interview before the vote on Wednesday. “I don’t think it’s gotten enough discussion or input including from the communities it was designed to protect.”

City Council members said ahead of the meeting that they would be disappointed if the commission tabled the measure, effectively putting off any vote on the proposal till November 2021.

“Any rationalizing that will convince an unelected body that it is their job to ‘protect’ voters from themselves is a pretty significant violation of the democratic process,” said Jeremiah Ellison, a City Council member, who helped draft the proposed charter measure.

I heard about a video where a rioter walks up and grabs the barrel of a cop’s rifle and gets decked. Anybody have it?

If it's the one I'm thinking about, it's a pretty old clip.

There have been a number of cases where a passed out individual (sometimes in a drive through) with a weapon visible in the vehicle have been killed by cops.

Defunding the police will not help these particular scenarios. Whether or not armored cars are required is rather beside the point if your local cop union agitates for officer safety.

What works is:

-Time

-Massive show of force (probably more for the cops than the suspects)

-Specialized equipment (rifles, flashbangs, etc)

Defunded police forces won't have some of these tools, and might trend towards Vallejo tactic of trying to roust a guy right outside his window providing a justification to shoot him if he moves his arm at all.

Tl;DR (its a long thread): Cop had some altercation with a suspect, twisted the prosecuter's arm into elevating the charge to attempted murder. Upon realization that the facts would not support such a charge, they and their buddies forum shop in a neighboring jurisdiction to get a magistrate to issue a warrant for the public defender with a 14 day hold to prevent effective defense.

Three different police departments were involved.

After I posted I saw that some questioned it. I presumed the cop skeptical defense attorneys that reposted it had a reason to trust the posting account. Maybe they were similarly bamboozled.

If false, this does a huge disservice to the community.

I just assume its Louisiana, though this seems pretty complicated for them. They'd just confiscate all your stuff and shoot you.

Looks like the former head of the Boston police union is a serial child rapist.

(CNN)Two New Jersey police officers have pleaded guilty to vandalizing the cars of a man who filed a complaint against them.

Stephen Martinsen and Thomas Dowling -- both of whom were officers with Asbury Park police at the time -- admitted to slashing tires of two cars and breaking the windows in one, the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.
The incident happened in September 2019. The men confessed their act of vandalism was retaliation for the cars' owner filing an internal affairs complaint against them with Asbury Park, the statement said
