My family is keeping close tabs on the violence in Minneapolis that hasn’t subsided since summer when riots broke out along with calls to defund the police.
Our cousin is married to a police officer in Minneapolis where the couple lives. So we watch. And we worry, especially since the climate isn’t improving.
Crime statistics up to mid-September in Minneapolis are seen in orange, compared to 2019 figures in blue.
From an opinion piece in the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
“Today you can’t go to the grocery store without fear of being attacked.”
