Three members of the city Council of Minneapolis, who voted to abolish the local police, often hired the firm for personal protection. It costs taxpayers up to $ 4,500 a day.
This was announced on the same day, when the Council voted 12-0 for the dissolution of the police Department Minneapolis after the assassination of George W. Floyd. “I’m worried about large numbers of white nationalists in our city and threatening messages I receive”, – said in an interview with Fox 9 News Council member Andrea Jenkins (Andrea Jenkins), adding that she asked about his personal security since she took office in 2018.
The city has spent 63 000 USD to protect Jenkins and two other members of the Council – Philip Cunningham and Alondra Kano – the police in the last three weeks, after increased threats in their address.
All three initiators of the movement for the abandonment of the city police force in favor of the “peacekeepers” and “holistic-oriented public health approach” to law enforcement.
