Minneapolis Police Advises Residents “Be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” in their “Robbery Prevention Tips”

A document that has been shared and is stirring controversy social media, Minneapolis police advise in their “robbery prevention tips” to “be prepared to give up your cell phone and purse/wallet” if approached by robbers, and “do not argue or fight with the criminal. Do as they say.”

One Twitter user reacted:

This is appalling. All citizens of America deserve protection. It is our first and most important right, and it is why there is govt. It is government’s main job. (Which many have forgotten.) If this Mpls govt cannot get it done for ALL citizens, it has no fundamental purpose.

Another wrote “So ashamed of my state of MN and our leaders”
