Minneapolis Mayor Booed Out of Rally
Chanting “Shame” and “Go home, Jacob, go home,” demonstrators drove Mayor Jacob Frey out of a rally after he declined to commit to defunding the police.
Jacob Frey, we have a yes or no question for you. Yes or no: Will you commit to defunding Minneapolis Police Department? We don’t want no more police. Is that clear? We don’t want people with guns toting around in our community shooting us down. You haven’t answered. It is a yes or a no. It is a yes or a no. Will you defund the Minneapolis Police Department? All right, be quiet. Be quiet. Because it’s important that we actually hear this. It’s important that we hear this because if you don’t know, he’s up for re-election next year. [cheering] He’s up for re-election next year. And if he says no, guess what the [expletive] we’re going to do next year. What did you say? You’re wasting our time. Go home, Jacob. Go home. Go home, Jacob. Go home. Go home, Jacob. Go home. Shame, shame, shame.
