Minneapolis City Council is moving to replace the police with a community-led security model


Pensacola, fl

The Minneapolis city council unanimously approved a resolution seeking to form a community-led security and public safety system to replace police administration after the death of George Floyd at the hands of city police.

The move comes days after a majority of council members voted to dissolve the police administration after an outburst of anger erupted in the country in protest against the killing of Floyd, a black man who died when a white police officer knelt his neck for about nine minutes.

Five members of the council wrote in the resolution, “The murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, by the Minneapolis police officers, is a tragedy that shows that no amount of reforms will prevent violence and fatal abuse by some police officers against members of our society, especially black and colored people.”
