'We have failed': Walz admits mistakes in law enforcement response to protests of police killings

https://minnesotareformer.com/2021/04/19/we-have-failed-this-week-gov-tim-walz-admits-mistakes-in-law-enforcement-response-to-protests-of-police-killings/

Facing a burgeoning political crisis over his administration’s aggressive response to protests of police killings, Gov. Tim Walz acknowledged law enforcement failed to protect press freedoms during a news conference Monday.

Joined by the mayors of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Walz offered few specifics on how he plans to prevent a repeat of the past week, in which law enforcement used tear gas, rubber bullets and mace on people protesting the police killing of Daunte Wright in Brooklyn Center, as well as journalists covering the demonstrations.

“We have failed this week,” Walz said. “It’s unacceptable.”

Operation Safety Net, a coalition of law enforcement agencies formed to prevent rioting and looting during the murder trial of Derek Chauvin, has come under intense scrutiny for their handling of daily demonstrations outside the Brooklyn Center police station.

1. The first thing to do is stop using the National Guard...

... to protect the racist cops. Send them down the street to protect businesses and stop infiltrators who use the cover of protests to riot and loot and discredit the aggrieved protesters.

2. Yes, the infiltrators are right-funded and sent out to do just what you said.

They show up and do their dirty work in protests all over the country.
