  1. This is a huge win for police and the people they serve: ALL OF US!! Happy to see sanity prevail in the vote and hoping that “defund the police” goes out like dial up internet, horse and buggy transportation, and cloth diapers.


    1. 🥲🕺: spoken from a true Minnesota Man, Skol! However, I do agree with reform; the utilization of social and psych workers are a valuable asset, when culture syncs. How long that takes? Your guess is as best as mine.


  2. When I call 911, I need help from the police – not a counseling session. These are two separate issues that need additional discussion – not an “either or” approach.
