Minneapolis police accused of rights violations by Justice Department

June 16, 2023

The Justice Department alleged Friday that Minneapolis police have systematically discriminated against Black and Native American people for years and often violated constitutional rights following a sweeping investigation that began after George Floyd was killed.

The investigation also found that both police and the city discriminated against people with “behavioral health disabilities” when officers are called for help.
