Woke Minneapolis Sees 537% Rise in Carjackings

Minneapolis — site of the drug-induced martyrdom of career criminal George Floyd, ignition site of the hundreds of antipolice Black Lives Matter riots encouraged by the liberal establishment, and birthplace of the defund the police movement, where the openly pro-riot City Council promised to dismantle the police department — is in the news once again, this time for a remarkable rise in carjackings:

Over the past two months, Minneapolis police have logged more than 125 carjackings in the city…

Within a one-hour period Saturday morning, police reported three separate carjackings in southeast Minneapolis, including one where an elderly woman was struck on the head. Such attacks are up 537% this month when compared with last November.

Woke Minneapolis has more to offer than carjackings:

The spree comes amid a nearly unprecedented spike in violent crime, particularly shootings, since the May 25 killing [sic] of George Floyd in police custody and the civil unrest that followed.

In November, the toll of people shot this year surpassed 500 in Minneapolis, the most in 15 years. Seventy-nine homicides is the highest count since the mid-1990s, an era when the city earned the grim moniker “Murderapolis.”

At least the leftists running Murderapolis have learned their lesson and will stop undermining the police in the name of their grotesque ideology, right? Wrong:

Several members of the council introduced a plan Friday that would institute additional cuts to the Minneapolis Police Department and make the city’s reduction in law enforcement permanent. The plan would cut about $8 million from the police budget and shrink the MPD force by 15%.

Being liberal means never having to say you’re sorry, because no matter how bad your moonbattery blows up in everyone’s face, it is somebody else’s fault. No doubt systemic racism or economic inequality is to blame for the transition of Minneapolis into New Mogadishu.
