I’m shocked that things are getting worse for police in a progressive city. As homicides rise in Minneapolis, arrest rate drops.
Minneapolis mirrors a national trend: While homicides and other violent acts have declined for years in most cities, police are solving fewer of those crimes.
There are lots of reasons, but foremost – even in the Star Tribune’s coverage – is that the people no longer cooperate with cops. They put a liberal spin on it, but hey, it’s their city.
