A two-year study in Minnesota has concluded the Minneapolis Police Department engages in discriminatory, race-based policing. Minnesota’s Department of Human Rights launched the probe after the police killing of George Floyd. The report documented “racial disparities in how Minneapolis officers use force, stop, search, arrest, and cite people of color.” The report also determined that the Minneapolis Police Department covertly uses social media to surveil Black individuals and Black organizations unrelated to criminal activity.
