Report Finds Pattern of Racist Discrimination in Minneapolis Police Department

HeadlineApr 28, 2022

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.
