Minneapolis push to dismantle police is 'crash test dummy' for far-left activists: Omar challenger

“You will see Minneapolis leading the charge in criminality, leading the charge in violent crime, you will see other socialist policies taking place and you will see absolute misery,” Cicely Davis, a Republican candidate for Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, told Fox News. 

“And they will use Minneapolis as that crash test dummy, to run these ideals, to run this ideology and to run these policies, and then to only spread that to the next city, the next suburb and to the next state,” she added. “We just simply cannot have it.”

The efforts to disband the Minneapolis Police Department sparked from the death of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. A coalition of progressive activist organizations, called Yes 4 Minneapolis, have pushed the measure with a Nov. 2 ballot initiative to replace it with a “Department of Public Safety.”
