Minneapolis Plan To Defund The Police Collapses, City Council Members ‘Regret’ Making Pledge.

Minneapolis, Minnesota’s plan to defund and then disband its local police force has “collapsed” according to a New York Times report over the weekend.

Some Minneapolis city councilmembers who have pledged to de-enforce the city’s law enforcement — including the city council president — now say they regret making that promise.

The Times headlines that “a pledge to dismantle the police department has collapsed,” and notes that “the majority of city council members promised to “finish policing as we know it” after The Death of George Floyd while in custody at the Minneapolis Police Department.
