DOJ to probe Minneapolis police

DOJ to probe Minneapolis police

AG Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the DOJ will open an investigation into the policing practices of law enforcement in Minneapolis. ’Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,’ Garland said in reference to the case around Derek Chauvin. The move tees up greater federal oversight of local police departments.

How about an investigation in to jury tampering from government officials...you know telling the jury find the cop guilty or else we will burn the place down

At this point this was to be expected. If I’m a police officer I would simply not put myself in harms way when a call comes in. If there is a shooting at a mall for example, I would not try to save anyone because if I do, then I might be sued.

Seriously its time for cops to quit en mass and move out of cities. Let them have the BLM/Antifa utopia they want. H.L. Mencken said it best "People deserve the government they vote for, and they deserve to get it good and hard."

No surprise here. Anything to score quick social justice “creditibility” for their base.

Good. Abolish the Minneapolis PD, the people there don't want them anyway. Let the murder rate skyrocket, that is what the people voted for. Don't like it, move to a different state

Justice Department that doesn't care less about terrorist BLM. DOJ that is more interested in trying to follow a fake narrative for political posturing. That's not justice. That's a partisan hack.

Good thing. Time to keep departments accountable for their actions.

The initial report given by the police shows they tried to cover this up. Drag it all out in the light and demand justice. A change is sorely needed. Everyone else crying in these comments have their heads in political sides so deep that their hearts are stone.

Here they come with all their faux news talking points. Oh accountability... no one wants to be a police officer.. good riddance.. there is no need for police officers that do not want accountability... After reading the ridiculous comments about George Floyd and how it was his fault that Derek C. Sat on his neck for 9 minutes.. ..I just thought what is wrong with these people? Then I realized that they are just regurgitating what they watch on faux news... Close down faux news now... bankrupt that piece of CRA.p with lawsuits for all the fallacious falsehoods they spread 24*7

Common sense move...where there's smoke there's fire. Put the flames of racism in police culture OUT.

I'm all for seeing justice served, but in my opinion, this is a state-level issue, not one that the federal government should be involving itself in.

The DOJs investigation is, for now, pure optics. The problem isn't so much in Minneapolis as it is with policing in general. Many of the police officers are former military. Military training is very different due to the nature of war. Policing is more of a non combative community relations function.

You know why else was a state level issue that needed the federal government to help solve? Jim Crow, lynchings, not comparing just pointing it out.

Can we just audit and investigate all police departments? I'm not even particularly anti-cop but that may be a good idea.

So it begins, the DOJ will investigate and find some trumped up reason to disband and install a federal police force, then on to other cities and so on until the Democrats have their own federal police force to force the states to tow the line. Didn’t this happen before? Some country in Europe where National Socialists were in power ? 🤔

We give Police military equipment and weapons federally funded so why isn't there oversight? Furthermore when the military has longer training and stricter rules of engagement IN WAR than a cop does AT A TRAFFIC STOP maybe idk there's a massive F. Ing issue with that? Do you have any clue what the military would have done to me if I opened fire on an unarmed civilian in general let alone ON VIDEO? After over a year and all of the protests some of you ign0rant F ers still refuse to hear. If it was a civilian sitting on a pleading man till he died you all wouldn't be saying shart. A BADGE IS NOT A LICENSE TO KILL.

Establish independent body to oversee police practices. How do you expect justified sentences and verdicts when they do their own internal investigations. Same as oil spill investigations done by the ones who cause them... comical

Minneapolis doesn't want enforcement of laws against people of color. Only woke laws against police. Anything less would be unacceptable. There is nothing to probe.

Wouldn’t it be funny if all the police officers just quit? I mean that’s what the left wants so why not oblige? Let’s see how long the can last before they start calling for help. I mean, seriously I know the US education system isn’t the best, so it’s no surprise half the country is half witted. And it seems to be the brain washed leftist PC culture that brought this about.
