Squad member and “Defund the Police” advocate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) outrageously claimed during a town hall event over the weekend that Minneapolis police are “dysfunctional” and that they are to blame for the rise in crime in the city.

The radical leftist accused police officers of not fulfilling their oath of office. She has previously called them a “cancer” and declared “we need to completely dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department.”

“What we must also recognize is that the reduction in policing currently in our city, and the lawlessness that is happening is due to two things,” Omar stated Saturday in Minneapolis. “One, the police have chosen to not fulfill their oath of office and to provide the public safety they are owed to the citizens they serve, right? It’s documented. But even before that, it was documented. The Minneapolis Police Department is the most dysfunctional police department, in our state and probably in the country.”

“The second part is that there has to be accountability,” she added. “And someone that is actually taking responsibility for what the police does invest into. And that doesn’t exist in this moment. And I do believe that the current charter that we have, that’s tied the hands of those who want to have that accountability because we are mandated to have a specific amount of policing, we are mandated to, you know, have the kind of these union contracts that we have right now. I don’t know any other big city in the state of Minnesota that has the charter that we have, it just doesn’t exist.”
