Minneapolis Police Department To Be Dismantled- City Council Boss

Lisa Bender, president of the Minneapolis council has promised to dismantle the city’s police.

“We committed to dismantling policing as we know it in the city of Minneapolis and to rebuild with our community a new model of public safety that actually keeps our community safe,” she told CNN.

The decision was endorsed by nine council members out of 12.

They said they are committed “to end policing as we know it.”

“A more complete remaking of the department is likely to unfold in coming months”, Bender said..

The promise came almost two weeks after white policeman Derek Chauvin, now dismissed, asphyxiated African-American George Floyd.

The police officer knelt on Floyd’s neck for close to nine minutes, such that the unarmed blackman moaned “I can’t breathe’.

The callous murder, video-taped by on-lookers on 25 May, has triggered outraged worldwide, with demonstrators calling for the end of racism.

Floyd will be buried in Houston tomorrow 9 June.
