Two Weeks Ago, an Woke Leftist Minneapolis Neighborhood Vowed to Stop Calling the Police on Criminals "To Protect Black People."
Almost Overnight, Their Park Became a Homeless Encampment and Their Streets Became Crack Malls.

Tucker spoke about these performative woke #Morons last night.


The New York Times now profiles the neighborhood. Hey, if you've made your neighborhood too unsafe for your children to go outside just for Virtue Signalling, you're gonna want to contact the New York Times and get your Virtue Signalling out to a broader audience.

After the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police, Ms. Albers, who is white, and many of her progressive neighbors have vowed to avoid calling law enforcement into their community. Doing so, they believed, would add to the pain that black residents of Minneapolis were feeling and could put them in danger.


Already, that commitment is being challenged. Two weeks ago, dozens of multicolored tents appeared in the neighborhood park. They were brought by homeless people who were displaced during the unrest that gripped the city. The multiracial group of roughly 300 new residents seems to grow larger and more entrenched every day. They do laundry, listen to music and strategize about how to find permanent housing. Some are hampered by mental illness, addiction or both.

Their presence has drawn heavy car traffic into the neighborhood, some from drug dealers. At least two residents have overdosed in the encampment and had to be taken away in ambulances.


The influx of outsiders has kept Ms. Albers awake at night. Though it is unlikely to happen, she has had visions of people from the tent camp forcing their way into her home. She imagines using a baseball bat to defend herself.

Not being able to call the police, as she has done for decades, has shaken her.

"I am afraid," she said. "I know my neighbors are around, but Im not feeling grounded in my city at all. Anything could happen."

You are afraid.

I am laughing out loud.

Suicide is a choice.

You made your choice.

The rest is just entertainment.

...

Since the camp appeared, the community has organized shifts for delivering warm meals, medical care and counseling to people living in the park. They persuaded officials to back off an eviction notice served shortly after the campers arrived.

But many in the neighborhood, who were already beleaguered from the financial stresses of the coronavirus, now say they are eager for the campers to move on to stable housing away from the park.

"I'm not being judgmental," said Carrie Nightshade, 44, who explained that she no longer felt comfortable letting her children, 12 and 9, play in the park by themselves. "It's not personal. It's just not safe."

The Cop-Free Homeless Heroin Park you turned your neighborhood into isn't safe? Who could have predicted this?

On Friday, she sat in a shared backyard with four other women who live in neighboring houses. The women, four of whom are white, had called a meeting to vent about the camp.


Angelina Roslik burst into tears, explaining that she had spent the past four years fleeing unstable housing conditions and was struggling more than she cared to admit with the chaos the camp had brought into the neighborhood. Linnea Borden said she had stopped walking her dog through the park because she was tired of being catcalled. "My emotions change every 30 seconds," said Tria Houser, who is part Native American....

Relevance?

But some people in the neighborhood have already found their best-laid plans to avoid calling the police harder to execute than they had imagined.

Last Thursday night, Joseph Menkevich found a black man wearing a hospital bracelet passed out in the elevator of his apartment building two blocks away from the park. Mr. Menkevich, who is white, quickly phoned a community activist but she did not pick up. He felt he had no choice but to call 911, so he did, but requested an ambulance only, not the police.

Unfortunately, he didn't wind up needing it.


Just so much wonderfulness here.
