Minneapolis City Council Plans To Dismantle Police Department


(Minneapolis, MN) -- The Minneapolis City Council is planning to dismantle their city's police department. A nine-person majority pledged to defund the department following the death of George Floyd in police custody. Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender said it is clear the existing system of police and public safety is not keeping people safe. The council is planning on investing money in community-led public safety. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said he is against this move.
