Instead, though, it “has become a case study of how ideal calls for structural change can falter.”
In June, the Minneapolis City Council was clear that the Minneapolis Police Department was at a time of borrower. City Council President Lisa Bender said.
She is progressive and describes herself as progressive – the population has a vision for a “transformative new model of public safety” and now added that anyone concerned that lack of law enforcement would lead to a rise in crime was speaking from a place of “privilege”.
At the time, Bandar challenged her colleagues to council members by sticking to the state department dismantling plan, fearing they were complicit in “white supremacy.”
“If you’re a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to think: Are you willing to hold on to it? Are you going to call in three months to ask about the garage break-in? Are you ready to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new one?”
