Political Correctness Has Consequences – Minneapolis Police/Diversity Chief Resigns…

Social justice, political correctness, affirmative action, diversity policies and the predictable consequences therein, all converged in Minneapolis last week when a Somali police officer shot and killed a Australian woman in her pajamas; sketchy reason yet undetermined.

Today, amid the swirling controversy, the chief of diversity and policing resigned from office:

(Reuters) – Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau resigned on Friday at the request of the city’s mayor, who said that she had lost confidence in Harteau following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman.

The death of Justine Damond, 40, from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen fired through an open window of a police patrol car, has outraged her relatives and the public in Australia. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called it “shocking” and “inexplicable.”

Mayor Betsy Hodges said in a statement that she and Harteau agreed during discussions on Friday that Harteau would step aside.

“As far as we have come, I’ve lost confidence in the Chief’s ability to lead us further – and from the many conservations I’ve had with people around our city, especially this week, it is clear that she has lost the confidence of the people of Minneapolis as well,” Hodges said in her statement.  (read more)

    This Mayor gets worse and worse. Back in May of this year she gave her State of the City speech at a Mosque.

    So she wears the Oppressive Head Gear and gives a State of the City speech at a Mosque and makes the Chief of Police resign when the Police Chief won’t defend her pet Gun Happy Muslim Cop.

    Do you asses in Minneapolis have enough evidence that she is a Lunatic?

      Ok. That was interesting. She was not wearing the Head Gear back in May at the Mosque.

      So she’s either converted or is doubling down in her efforts to a$$ kiss Muslims who are on the extremist end of things.

      And yes, I call it a step towards extremism to wear the Headgear. Many MANY Muslim women around the world did NOT wear that crap until the extreme elements starting taking over their religion. Now they are FORCED to wear it and This_Is_What_This_ AMERICAN_Mayor_Supports.

      My friends in Indonesia and Egypt are not thanking you, you Bitch.

      And I’m sure many American Muslims are not thanking you either.

        And, not too long ago, it was a popular for westerner’s to begin a trek in London, cross over to Lebanon, and drive through the middle east to Pakistan and then on to India. Hippies did it in VW Microbuses. No westerner would dare do that now unless he were part of an Army. What is now “real” in the Muslim world was decidedly not “real” throughout most of post WWII history.

          Keep in mind that the state is so staunchly DFL historically, that Hills didn’t bother campaigning. County by county, it was metro and Duluth voting DFL.

          This could be the turning point. The neighborhood where the killing took place is near where out of control Muslim men ran through the neighborhood, threatening women. It’s a very wealthy area.

          No idea whether there’s a strong candidate but Bike Lane Betsy wasn’t likely to be re-elected anyway.

          She does need to quit for pandering to the Somali community, first for making a point of questionable diversity hires, second, for wearing a hijab, third, for reassuring the Somali community after the killing.

          She should be reassuring the community at large because Mohammed is from the community whose young members are joining al shabaab and running off to kill people.

          Refugee welfare recipients are now vacationing in Somalia. If it’s safe enough to visit, we shouldn’t accept more Somalis and the ones hete should be returned.

          I believe the same of anyone claiming to be Syrian as many Syrians have returned. And I believe the same of anyone on temporary special status visas of the sort that the government continually renews. Some have been here 20 years and should use their skills to help their homeland.

      The cultural difficulty, I think, for Australians, is that they will find it hard to understand how it might be that you might call the police to report what you think might be a rape, and you end up being shot dead.

      Australians are simply not used to that sort of thing, and nor are they generally used to thinking of the police as the enemy. Generally, they think of the police as being there to help.

      I suspect there was a cultural difficulty here; which was not helped by the fact that the Muslim policeman was a Leftoid Multi-Culti Diversity appointment, who on all accounts should not ever have been appointed to his position.

      I suspect there will be a serious civil suit coming out of this.

    When the future ends with your own demise, when your legacy is not your children, it is easy to make it some experiment, be it social, scientific, social. You do not suffer the consequences, the children of others do.

  18. So much for social justice when snowflakes fall.

    I had an interesting run in with a dirty old man in my neighborhood who thinks he’s a doctor-like movie-star and could/should prescribe date-rape drugs for Snowflakes (white women?).

    Except my run-in was simply that he startled me and I screamed. I always scream when someone comes up behind me and then uses ever “F” word he knows. When the ladies in the office next door heard his vulgar tirade they came out. And he ACCUSED me of calling him the “N-word” ─ a term I have never used in my life. If you don’t have a social justice libel ─ make one up seemed to be his philosophy.

    A few days later he saw me walking on the sidewalk and rolled down the window on the passenger side displaying the attitude, “I can shoot you in the back if I choose.”

    Spooky.

    Real doctors such a Dr. Ben Carson must be extremely embarrassed by people like this “mo-fo, mo-fo, mo-fo, ad nauseam” talking idiot. I’m so glad President Trump made Dr. Ben Carson Secretary of Housing and Development. Maybe he can clean up some of this mess.

    That is not how such things are handled with any other police force I know of, when there’s a citizen complaint of that level of seriousness, the officer is suspended with or without pay while the charges are investigated.
    This chronic problem was allowed to continue to have official contact with women.

    Hey – who asked for it to be “fundamentally transformed”? Not us.

    Put women and leftists (or even worse: women leftists) in charge of agencies that actually have a purpose and mission (in this case, catching crooks and thugs and crime prevention or at least arrest and punishment) – and instead of running the agency to perform its mission, they run it as a social-coddling exercise to pander to all manner of “under-represented” pets and dysfunctional segments of society.

    Intentional incompetence, intentional destruction of our institutions.

    Sorry for the rant but as soon as I heard “transformational change” I hit the roof.
