Combat In Minneapolis – 150 Police Officers Seeking Disability For PTSD Following Riots

Local police officers have a tough, but rewarding job. Until recently, the people in Blue had the support from their communities, and a typical day did not include riot control and/or the need to use deadly force.

Definition: Deadly force means that force which a reasonable person would consider likely to cause death or serious bodily harm. Its use may be justified only under conditions of extreme necessity when all lesser means have failed or cannot reasonably be employed.

In the progressive governed cities, things have changed considerably for the officers. Social Justice Warriors (SJW) have been allowed to control city hall, promote the distrust of the police, and promote anarchy.

When the police, whose hands are tied by the mayors, have to deal with SJW mobs like ANTIFA and BLM, the pressures to walk a fine line of keeping law & order without using strong countermeasures takes its toll on everyone.

Minneapolis is so out of control at least 150 Police Officers have begun the process of seeking ‘duty disability’ for post-traumatic stress under the Minnesota Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA), said an attorney representing the officers. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

The attorney, Ron Meuser, who handles most disability claims for the Minneapolis Police Federation, told the FOX 9 Investigators 75 of those officers are under doctors’ orders not to return to work as they undergo treatment for symptoms consistent with PTSD.

“The symptoms didn’t just start six weeks ago,” said Meuser. “They’ve been dealing with symptoms for decades.”
Meuser said since the killing of George Floyd, officers have felt abandoned by city and state politicians as well as the community at large.

But the stress and trauma reached a tipping point with the siege of the Third Police Precinct, he said.

Fifty of the officers currently seeking disability, about one-third of the total, were present at the Third Precinct on Thursday, May 28.

“They did not feel they were going to come home,” said Meuser. Some officers were texting their families’ goodbye and others were saving a bullet in case they needed to take their own life, rather than being beaten to death, he said.

With cities like Minneapolis voting to defund the police, and increasing numbers of officers are seeking disability, expect crime to increase and if possible, get away from them now!
