The left has worked mercilessly over the last year to cancel police officers and get rid of law enforcement. Now, Rep. Ilhan Omar is complaining that the police officers in Minneapolis City Council are unwilling to work.
The Minneapolis Police Department started off the new year with about 200 less officers than 2020. They lost 105 cops during the summer violence and riots. On average the department expects to lose about 40 officers during the year. Now the city only has 638 active office.
Numerous officers are out on account of PTSD claims according to Chief Medaria Arradondo and Financial Director Robin McPherson. However, Omar and district director Kendal Killian don’t seem to care.
“The police are just refusing to come to work,” Omar tweeted.
Correction: Minneapolis has about 200 fewer police officers UNWILLING to work.
It might be wise to note, Minneapolis hasn’t passed a single policy that changes the make up of the police department. The police are just refusing to come to work. https://t.co/x3lTsmmaWf

Killian also made a similar comment, stating that the MPD officers would “rather snowmobile than do their jobs.”
A year ago the Minneapolis Police payroll had 877 officers. This week only 638 will show up to work. It may surprise Senator Gazelka to learn that the dropoff is not due to reduced funding. It's because those cops walked off the job. They'd rather snowmobile than do their jobs.

Alpha News reports,
This is not the first time the high-ranking Omar staffer has berated Minneapolis police officers. In June, he called them “insecure babies … cowards” and criticized their alleged embrace of “rural cultural identity.”
Meanwhile, Minneapolis police themselves tell a very different story.
One officer recently penned an op-ed for the Star Tribune in which she explicitly stated: “I did not retire because I wanted to retire, despite many thinking 37 years was enough. I didn’t feel as if I was done just yet. I still had a mission to complete and that is what makes leaving difficult.”
The officer, Kim Voss, went on to explain that a total lack of support from city leadership in the face of a murderous mob pushed many cops to their breaking point.
“It’s hard to get up every day and be happy to go to your job feeling like damaged goods,” Voss said. “I received over 4,000 voicemails of vitriolic hate, and I didn’t have a phone left or a desk to put a phone on. My office had been firebombed.”
I can’t say I blame her, or any other officer, for that matter. The job is already a dangerous one. Add in the anti-police sentiment and it becomes even deadlier.
