After Allowing Riots to Destroy Minneapolis, Mayor Frey Wants US Taxpayers to Pay for It


Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey appeared to suggest that American taxpayers should pay for his reckless decisions.

After rioters were permitted to destroy the city of Minneapolis, its leadership now wants U.S. taxpayers to pay for repairs.

There is no doubt that Mayor Frey and Minneapolis leadership are responsible for the destruction, critics say.

After all, Mayer Frey is still defending his decision to abandon the Third Precinct, which was burned and destroyed by rioters.

CBS Minnesota reports:

Last Wednesday night, as the Target near the 3rd Precinct was being looted, Frey got an urgent call from Police Chief Madaria Arradondo.

“He said Mayor if this continues I do not think there is any way that our police department is going to handle this crisis on our own. Mayor, I am asking you to ask for the National Guard,” Frey said.


Now, Frey defends abandoning the 3rd Precinct.

“If we decided to continue to hold the 3rd Precinct there very likely would have been hand-to-hand combat, likely serious injury and maybe death, and in the decision between a building and life-or-death we decided to evacuate,” Frey said.

Frey confirmed officers were pulled out of the precinct earlier in the day with the hope that would diffuse protests and free up officers for other hotspots.

“Going forward, we have a lot of work to do,” Frey said. “Before anything we need to do everything possible in getting justice for George Floyd.”

Frey's "leadership" is what lead to widespread destruction within the city.

But now, they want federal taxpayers to help pay for the repairs?!

We don't think so!

Law abiding citizens who support law and order should not be responsible to pay for a city where chaos was permitted to reign!
