Seward (Minneapolis) neighborhood business frustrated with police response to break-ins

This is what police are ignoring while they are harassing black men in traffic stops.

Some small business owners in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis say they are growing frustrated as their businesses are being broken in to over and over with no help from police.

Lakes Pharmacy is one of those businesses. The owner says her store was broken into multiple times and, when she calls police, nobody responds.
Saida Mohamed got a call from her upstairs neighbor at 3 a.m. Tuesday telling her that people are breaking into her store for the fourth time this year.
She said she is frustrated because nobody is protecting businesses in the Seward community.

"We want to tell the mayor, you are not the mayor for a certain batch of this city," said Abdirizak Bihi, a Seward resident. "You are the mayor of Minneapolis and this is Minneapolis. We want you to provide services and thatís public safety."
. . .

Minneapolis Police say there has been an uptick in burglaries and they are aware of this incident, which police say is under investigation. Police could not provide more details or say if they spoke with Mohamed.
