The City of Minneapolis — where the #DefundThePolice movement started — will reportedly spend $6.4 million to hire new police officers because residents are complaining about a rise in crime:

“It finally comes full circle”:
It finally comes full circle.

And here’s Gov. Greg Abbott with the dunk and a plan to never let this happen in Texas:
Looks like defunding police didn't go well in Minneapolis.
Now they're spending $6.4M to recruit more police officers.
It won't go well in Texas either.

I am clown pilled at this point

And why would anyone want to work as a cop in Minneapolis?
I can imagine the ads now, "Would you like a job where national politicians like @IlhanMN disparage you on cable networks for things you didn't do to score cheap points against her political opponents? Sign up now!"https://t.co/qIJYw3wdwu
