It’s not too soon to begin preparing for the coming utopia when police departments will be but a memory.

How will law-abiding citizens protect themselves when the men and women in blue have been replaced by social workers?

In Minneapolis, kindly police chief Medaria Arradondo is offering citizens a helpful list of safety tips for a post-police world. Minneapolis might be considered the point of origin for the national defund the police movement.

Minneapolis has embraced a preliminary proposal for defunding the police.

So, the chief’s helpful list can be seen as a preview of what is to come. Here are some items from his list:

  • Do not walk alone
  • Be hyper-aware of your surroundings at all times – pay attention!
  • Carry only items you need, and carry less cash
  • Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet
  • Have keys already in your hand as you approach your car
  • Despite all our efforts, robberies may still occur! Do not argue or fight with the criminal Do as they say. Your safety is most important!
  • Be a good witness. When you call 911, be prepared to answer many questions. How many suspects? Age, height, complexion, hair and eye color? Scars or tattoos? Weapon- what did it look like? What direction did they leave in? Vehicle description?

Police reforms in Minneapolis after Floyd’s tragic death in police custody were clearly needed.  

But these crime tips look like a life under siege.

What is so very odd about the abolish the police movement is that it amounts to a voluntary crime spike when reforms could have been made to protect all citizens.
