"We Demand a Special Session to Rein in the Cops!"
This afternoon I attended a protest at the Minnesota Governor's Mansion hosted by nearly a dozen different organizations. They all demand that Governor Walz call a special session of the legislature to specifically address police reform.
From their event:
"The MN legislature ended their special session without passing any legislation to rein in the police.
*We DEMAND a special session.
--Walz needs to call a special session
--The legislature needs to meet until they pass legislation to rein in the cops
--Stop taking direction from the MPPOA (cop lobby)
*We DEMAND real legislation.
Much of what the house proposed wasn't worth the paper it was written on and some was downright harmful.
--Extend the statute of limitations for wrongful death
--Ban "warrior-style" training!
--Create an independent agency to investigate and prosecute killings by cops (not the BCA!, not the Attorney General!)
--Empower real civilian oversight
--Require professional liability insurance for cops"
