Beau of the Fifth Column: On Police Training and Change

&t=304s

The Minnesota pro teams have postponed games tonight. . .

. . .in the aftermath of the police killing of Duante Wright.

Dave Zirin of The Nation magazine has this commentary:
https://www.thenation.com/article/society/daunte-wright-minnesota-twins/

The Twin Cities and surrounding areas are already on edge. This latest outrage could push things right over, especially if it looks like nobody gives a damn. It has fallen to major league sports to send the message that this problem is so significant that the games simply cannot go on as usual.

. . .sports can and should do so much more than cancel games. The next step is for these politically connected franchise owners to agitate for some kind of police reform. Few, if any, of them, however, want to step in front of the cameras and confront the police. But thatís next. Many players and fans, as this crisis continues, are going to demand nothing less.
