Another officer has pleaded guilty in connection with the killing of George Floyd, but activists with “Twin Cities Coalition 4 Justice 4 Jamar” see little change in basic procedures to encourage more trust of the community.  Organizer Jae Yates says:

“Hiring a former officer (Cedric Alexander) as kind of the commissioner of public safety isn’t really that much of a change from how departments are kind of overseen already.”

Yates says the new Minneapolis Public Safety Department is “still not really accountable to regular citizens that live here.”
