MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – From Minneapolis city leaders asking the 4th Precinct protesters to vacate to the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to get up from her seat, here are the top four stories for Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015.
Minneapolis city leaders held a press conference Monday asking the protesters at the 4th Precinct to leave the premises.
Mayor Betsy Hodges, Congressmen Keith Ellison and other community leaders called for an end to the protest, saying it is no longer safe for them to be in the streets.
Protesters responded to city leaders, saying they have no plans to leave.
Black Lives Matter said it will leave once video of the shooting of Jamar Clark is released, something the BCA said won’t happen until the investigation is complete.
