Minnesota A.G. Says He Doesn't Think Police Should Respond To Rape Calls (VIDEO)

When people call 911, oftentimes it may not be the police who are first on the scene when a call comes in for an attack or if someone's health is on the line.

When people are attacked, in danger, or their health is critical they often call 9-1-1 and get help from first responders.

In rural areas, sometimes the fire department EMTs. But when it comes to cases of rape or violent activities, the police are the ones sent to the scene to ensure the safety of people.

However, the lunatic Democrat Attorney General of Minnesota, Keith Ellison claims that the police shouldn't even be responding to calls that come in where rape is reported.

Ellison shares in the anti-police sentiment that libs have right now. He wants to defund the police and send out social workers in their stead. Ellison claims social workers would be a better fit to respond to those calls.

"Keith Ellison, former Democrat National Committee vice chairman and current Minnesota attorney general, said he does not want police officers to respond to rape calls. The shocking policy suggestion occurred during a Zoom conversation featuring Ellison and Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) to discuss racism and police reforms. The dialogue was moderated by White House correspondent for “PBS NewsHour” Yamiche Alcindor.

"Ellison stated: “If you’re a woman who’s been a victim of a sexual assault, and the assailant ran away, wouldn’t you rather talk to somebody who is trained in helping you deal with what you’re dealing with, as opposed to somebody whose main training is that they know how to use a firearm? Right?”

In a tweet one user was appalled by the attorney general’s disregard for police officer capabilities, writing, “How is this guy an AG? Doesn’t he know they have special units trained to deal with sexual assault victims. What an insult – ‘their main training is how to use a weapon.’ Yes, help the victim, but catch the perp! Good grief.”

GOP rapid response director Steve Guest tweeted his prediction should Ellison and the radical left win in November, “This is Joe Biden’s Democrat Party and a reminder that you won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.”

A rape survivor responded to Guest’s tweet explaining, “Having been raped, I didn’t feel safe until I knew that the perpetrators were caught and was grateful for the police. Also, it was the police who directed me to community resources to help with the trauma and therapeutic resolutions. The ignorance of this man is insulting.”

One thing I want to point out is when he said, "wouldn’t you rather talk to somebody who is trained in helping you deal with what you’re dealing with, as opposed to somebody whose main training is that they know how to use a firearm? Right?”

This is a logical fallacy known as a false dichotomy. He presents this as an either-or position, but it's not the only two options, nor is it the full story.

If a person is raped, they want justice. Caseworkers don't catch criminals and serve justice, the police do and when you delay them from being able to investigate right away, you lose critical time to actually catch the criminal.
