Two Minnesota Cops on Leave After Decorating Racist Christmas Tree
An investigation is underway after photos surfaced on Twitter of a Christmas tree that was set up at a police station in north Minneapolis. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey called it a “racist display”.
Public perception of Minneapolis police isn't exactly great especially in the Fourth Precinct. The Star Tribune reports: The tension is particularly acute in the Fourth Precinct, where activists recently mourned the third anniversary of a police officer’s shooting of Clark, an unarmed black man.
Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told WCCO the incident is under investigation and said, “I am ashamed and appalled by the behavior of those who would feel comfortable to act in such a manner that goes against our core department values of Trust, Accountability and Professional Service.”
