The Activist Media has lied to America about what took place in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 when Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck during an arrest. Chauvin is going to face trial in the coming weeks.
The justice system will play itself out and Chauvin will be held accountable in some form. BUT—it will likely NOT be a satisfactory enough ruling to keep BLM Incorporated from burning down America again.
Before the verdict is announced, before hysteria ensues, educate yourself: here are the top five LIES that led to the destruction of American cities, the deaths of police officers, and the growing racial divide in our country.
Minneapolis Approves MILLIONS in Additional Funding for Police After Pushing to Defund
The city of Minneapolis has rolled back its original plan to defund the police after residents grew outraged over an increase in violent crime and longer police response times.
On Friday, the City Council unanimously approved $6.4 million in funding which the police requested.
Fox News reports:
The department says it only has 638 officers available to work — roughly 200 fewer than usual. An unprecedented number of officers quit or went on extended medical leave after Floyd’s death and the unrest that followed.
With new recruit classes, the city anticipates it will have 674 officers available at the end of the year, with another 28 in the hiring process, the Star Tribune reported.
In December, the City Council unanimously voted to remove approximately $8 million from the police department budget and redirect it towards violence prevention services and a mental health response.
U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) voiced her support for the $8 million decrease in funding for Minneapolis police in November, tweeting “Don’t fall for the fear-driven narratives .We can craft a justice system that prioritizes people’s basic needs like mental health + violence prevention, & allow the city to put public safety first.”

Minneapolis Residents Demand Law and Order and Sue City Over Violent Crime Wave
Minneapolis residents have had enough! No longer do they want to sit back and watch the city council, which is made up of 12 democrats and 0 republicans, destroy their city.
The Blaze writes:
According to KMSP-TV, eight residents have sued the city over what they say is insufficient policing that has left residents fearing for their lives amid the violent crime wave. In fact, the lawsuit claims there are currently fewer sworn officers employed with the Minneapolis Police Department than what is required by the city charter.
Minneapolis police officers found the riots following George Floyd’s death on May 25 so traumatic, in fact, that as of July, about 200 officers, or 20% of the city’s police force, had applied to leave the force, the New York Times reported.
The council promised to abolish the police department but is now feeling the effects of their dangerous rhetoric and beginning to backtrack.
City Council member Andrew Johnson said the promise was made “in spirit,” Councilmember Phillipe Cunningham claimed their rhetoric was “up for interpretation,” and Council President Lisa Bender said, “I think our pledge created confusion in the community and in our wards,” the New York Times reported.
Even after all this, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey plans a police budget cut next year of $14 million.
