Use Of Force
Questions surrounding police judgment have plagued Minnesota officers this week. On more than one occasion, calls to investigate suspicious activity have led to the use of force. Chris Lollie shot a video, that has now gone viral, as St. Paul Police arrested him in a Skyway in January.
Some Minneapolis city leaders believe fitting police officers with cameras on their uniforms can save the city money and protect officers from frivolous complaints. On Thursday, council members Betsy Hodges, Gary Schiff and Cam Gordon showed the body cameras to members of the media.
