After blocking Interstate 35W in Minneapolis in the middle of the early morning commute, Black Lives Matter protesters are now demanding the city abolish the local police department.

But now, they’re making serious demands. Black Lives Matter protesters are demanding the “disarming, defunding, demilitarizing, and disbanding” the Minneapolis Police Department.
The demands included the dismantling of the police department, “which includes disarming, defunding, demilitarizing, and disbanding police.”
The group also claimed that research and its experience have led it to conclude that “vast amounts spent on militarized police make most communities, excluding the very wealthy, less secure.”
These outrageous demands illustrate just how out of touch the BLM movement is with reality. While group apparently believes its demands represent the cause of “justice,” they only reinforce what many have become to believe about this group — that they are selfish, narcissistic, self-absorbed individuals obsessed with spreading hate just more hate than anything else.
Take a look at the press release that was sent out by the group following their traffic-stopping protest:
