posted by Hannity Staff - 9.28.20

Some member of the Minneapolis City Council dialed-back their demands to “defund” the police department in recent days; responding to angry residents complaints of rising crime and unsafe streets.

“Council member Andrew Johnson, who supported the pledge in June, told the outlet that he meant the words ‘in spirit,’ not by the letter. Meanwhile, Council member Phillippe Cunningham said the language in the pledge was ‘up for interpretation,’” reports Fox News.

“Council President Lisa Bender added that she believes the pledge ‘created confusion in the community and in our wards,’” adds Fox.

“I’m not taking any pledge, if that means people throw bottles at me then fine,” said another council member.

Fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s charge will be upgraded to 2nd Degree Murder Wednesday, according to Fox News and other sources, adding the other 3 officers who were present during George Floyd’s death will also be charged.

“Chauvin will now be charged with second-degree murder, The Star Tribune first reported. The other three officers involved — Thomas Lane, J.A. Kueng and Tou Thao – will be charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder,” reports Fox News.

“We expect all of the police officers to be arrested before we have the memorial here in Minneapolis tomorrow. Because we cannot have two justice systems in America – one for black America, one for white America. We must have equal justice for the United States of America,” said the attorney for the Floyd family.

“The City of Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day for private security for three council members who have received threats following the police killing of George Floyd,” reports Fox Minneapolis. “A city spokesperson said the private security details have cost taxpayers $63,000 over the past three weeks.”

“My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” wrote Jenkins in an email.
