“Minneapolis officials have a mess on their hands,” according to Blaze Media.
“Following the death of George Floyd, the City Council vowed to dismantle the city’s police and encouraged anti-police protests.
“But then the thing that happens when there’s a law enforcement vacuum happened: Crime increased — bigly. And now the city is facing a wave of a type of crime that had been pretty infrequent: violent carjackings.
“According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, cops have recorded almost 130 carjackings in the city over the last two months. Initially, they believed the crimes were happening mostly among bands of teenagers, but they soon discovered that it’s not just marauding youths. Recent weeks have seen a rising number of adults being nabbed for carjacking, too.
“And things are getting worse.
“Just last Saturday, cops reported three separate carjackings in the span of one hour, the Star Tribune reported.
“These types of attacks were up 537% for November, compared to one year ago.”
