Majority of Minneapolis City Council commits to dismantling city’s police department

A majority of the Minneapolis City Council agreed Sunday to dismantle the city’s police department after the in-custody killing of George Floyd, a council member said.

In an interview with NBC News, Councilman Jeremiah Ellison said the council would work to disband the department in its “current iteration.”

“The plan has to start somewhere,” he said. “We are not going to hit the eject button without a plan, so today was the announcement of the formulation of that plan.”

Speaking earlier during a community meeting, council President Lisa Bender called the city’s relationship with the department “toxic” and vowed to “re-create systems of public safety that actually keep us safe.”

“Our efforts at incremental reform have failed — period,” she said. “Our commitment is to do what’s necessary to keep every single member of our community safe and to tell the truth that Minneapolis police are not doing that.” (Read More)

Tarboro NC – So One Day Defines True Leadership

Damn was the sympathy for Tarboro Police or George Floyd and the others who have been killed recently by police? Asking for me!

So one day defines true leadership? Really!

Edgecombe County is majority Black.

Covid-19 and George Floyd have both shown me where people mindsets are be they Black, Brown, White and other especially Pastors, Police, Rescue and citizens. Now I know folk and already knew but in this season others received confirmation from what I have been saying.

I have been told that Edgecombe County Sheriff Office were not invited to the meeting for the planning of protest today. Now who in Edgecombe County is more prepared for protesting than Sheriff Clee Atkinson who have worked for Republican Governor Pat McCrory and current Democratic Governor Roy Cooper.

I understand that the majority of the officers present were Caucasians and I also heard that some were from Nashville Police Department.

Where was the real agenda today in Tarboro?

How many Blacks hold command staff positions under Chief Jesse Webb watch?

I wonder what is in place when hiring LEOs that have left the Sheriff Office and hired by Tarboro Police Department.

Where was the conversation about the Confederate Monument/s in Tarboro NC?  

Can someone please tell me how this sympathy walk corresponds with addressing Police Brutality/Murders across the nation?

Did not this sympathy walk come out of someone asking why Tarboro didn’t have a march like Rocky Mount did on last Sunday? Rocky Mount met at the Confederate Monument and then they demanded that the Confederate Monument be removed from the current location.

The following was posted on Social Media and as I read it I was trying to figure out what was accomplished today. So where are the photos of the community?

However the moment should not be about photo-ops and pretty words but should be about a movement.

I am going to see how many folk march down to the Tarboro City Council meeting on Monday June 8 to hold the councilmembers accountable and to demand that certain things are asked to be put in place especially when it comes to the Police Department and other. There should have been a resolution put in place to be delivered.

I’ll wait!

TRUE example of leadership.

*****YOU ARE AWESOME*****

Absolutely incredible!! Never have I been more proud to serve the men and women of the Tarboro Police Department, the extraordinary citizens of Tarboro, and our community! Today’s “Sympathy Walk with a Commitment to Change” was an opportunity to foster unity, comfort the afflicted, and begin the healing process for mending broken wounds. I am deeply humbled by the overwhelming show of support that was extended to our men and women in uniform and equally humbled by the cries for change associated with a criminal justice system that is obviously broken. For those who listened to my brief comments earlier, your voice is being heard and we are committed to helping create the positive change that is so desperately needed in our Nation.

Realizing that I may be a little bias in my opinions, I have no doubt that Tarboro is well poised to serve as a model for such change well beyond the borders of our community. If you attended today’s event, I feel confident that you will agree with me. With a faith to love and not hate, seeking understanding rather than division, and pursuing equitable accountability for all, there is nothing that can stop us from overcoming the differences that continue to bind us. Today, you showed up, you spoke up, and we united. May we now commit to these same ideals moving forward and put action to word. On behalf of the Tarboro Police Department, I have already made the commitment to create a culture of positive change for all citizens of Tarboro. Will you now join us in doing the same.

What an honor and blessing it is to serve you!

Respectfully,
Chief Jesse Webb

Veto-proof majority of Minneapolis City Council vows to disband police department

Nine members of the Minneapolis City Council — a veto-proof majority on the panel of 13 — signed a pledge at a rally on Sunday to begin the process of dismantling the Minneapolis Police Department as it currently exists, The Appeal first reported.

Why it matters: The move to replace the police department with a community-based public safety model answers the calls of activists who have been pushing for a massive overhaul of law enforcement in Minneapolis after the killing of George Floyd.

I Hate Half Trues There Is A Difference

imageDamn I hate half-trues. Towns are cancelling 4th of July Celebrations because it is the right thing to do and they are responsible for making it happen.

Protests are sponsored by folk who have the damn right to assemble. The Towns better allow them to have them or the town may find themselves in a mess.

This is the problem with these so damn called Americans ie: Special Cs who say mess that is directed towards Black folk but these same Americans say they like Black folk and want unity. Get the hell out of here.

I read code words so I get it.

It does not matter the status of Black folk the Non-Violent or the Violent Protesters if your ass Black you are still a Nigger. And so those folk of another color or race if they support my Black ass you know what that makes them other folk. Oh yeah a Nigger Lover.

But I don’t know any Niggers so I am good.

Now Run & Tell That!

This Is Basically Saying Black Folk We Don’t Care About Your Protest And They Will Run Over Your Ass

Protests in Pinetops and Tarboro today so folk you better hold folk in Edgecombe County accountable for their actions. Just because some of these folk such as police and rescue personnel walk with you, if their heart ain’t right it ain’t going to mean anything.

Right here in Edgecombe County so what is the status on this guy?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WTVD) — The Carolina Panthers announced late-Saturday evening they ended their relationship with CPI Security on Saturday evening. The announcement comes following controversial comments made by the security company’s CEO.

If Black Lives Matter Bothers You Because It Doesn’t Say

Mark Bear

Something to think about. During these times of crisis, I find the absolute best thing any of us can do is to LISTEN, and reflect. However, lessons do present themselves and I believe I have an obligation to those who follow my work to provide them.
