Following a violent crime spree in Minneapolis, Lt. Bob Kroll blamed the city's "ultra-left agenda" for emboldening criminals and claimed the city council refuses to provide them with the extra police they need to keep the community safe.
"The city council... ran on an anti-police agenda and they all made it. It's ultra-left. It's been [an] extreme Democrat-controlled council," he said on "Fox & Friends" Thursday. "It's been that way for 22 years. And [the mayor] didn't think he could get a larger number [of cops] through."
"It's an ultra-left agenda that the police are the problem," Kroll added. "[They say] it's a racially biased criminal justice system here, and we need to de-police. That's the overtone of our council."
The crime spree included savage mob-style beatings that were caught on camera, as victims tried to defend themselves from being robbed.
"The chief, who they unanimously appointed to this position, laid out a well-made plan to increase our department to the size that it should be to perform our core services and provide public safety," he said earlier in the interview. "None of them want to go forward. They think that they know policing better than the person that they've put in charge of the police department."
Kroll said criminals are thriving on the indulgence of far-left lawmakers and constantly game the system to escape justice.
