Senator Ted Cruz will introduce new legislation in the days ahead holding local governments liable to property and business owners should they fail to provide “adequate” police protection.
“Minnesota Dems willfully allowed Minneapolis to burn & then blamed the police whom they demonized. Now, they want the fed govt to pay the bill,” Cruz said in a tweet on Sunday. “I’m introducing legislation to make local govt liable to private property owners if officials deliberately withhold police protection.”

We had a number of stores broken into.”
