More gunfire as Minneapolis calls in other agencies to help restore order
The shock of a mass shooting in Uptown that left one man dead and 11 other people wounded had barely subsided Monday when multiple shootings elsewhere in the city swelled the number of casualties.
On Monday, the day three separate afternoon shootings on the North Side left nine people injured, Mayor Jacob Frey announced details behind a multiagency effort to quell the bloodshed that has persisted over the past several weeks.
Joining the Minneapolis Police Department will be virtually every law enforcement agency within reach: the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, Metro Transit police, and federal authorities from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI and the Secret Service, according to the mayor.
Keep in mind they haven't even disbanded the police and they are already calling for help keeping their diversity in check. Why should the Secret Service help solve crimes in Mogadishu when the city already has a police force?
It sort of seems like this might be a callous ploy to save some money while relying on the sheriffs and Feds to keep the peace in The Mog.
