Abolishing Minneapolis P.D. – WSJ


The “defund the police” movement began in Minneapolis in 2020 after the murder of George Floyd, and on Tuesday the city’s voters will decide if they also want to end policing as we know it.

Ballot Question 2 would amend its city charter to “remove the Police Department” and replace it with a Department of Public Safety. The measure is backed by the state ACLU, the Sierra Club and local unions, and polling suggests the vote may be close.
