A committee in the Minnesota Senate is holding hearings about crime in MN.
Sen. Warren Limmer began the joint committee hearing with a startling statistic: 54 people under the age of 18 have been shot this year in the Twin Cities. Seven have died.
To put that in perspective, four Minnesotans in the 0-19 age range have died of COVID-19 since the very beginning of the pandemic.
Needless to say
Democratic senators objected to even holding the hearing in the first place, saying it was just another Republican attempt to “play politics.”
