Minn. Agency To Examine Training, Hiring
August 07, 2013
Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau said Monday that she plans to examine the department's training and hiring practices after two incidents in which white officers allegedly used racial slurs and got into fights with black men while off duty.
Harteau also said that most Minneapolis police officers conduct themselves appropriately when dealing with the public and are distressed that the off-duty officers' confrontations have generated negative impressions of all city officers among some citizens.
In both cases, the officers were out late at bars when the apparently alcohol-fueled fights happened, and in both cases the officers behaved disrespectfully toward local police officers who showed up to investigate, according to police reports and video.

All sorts of political correctness and drama going on...with a lack of facts. The 2 white officers claim they were jumped by 9 blacks...with the fight initiated by a black male getting in one officer's face and swearing at him. The 9 black males were described as doing their "monkey thing"...which is pretty descriptive...I've usually heard it called, "Chimping out". Not horrific insults. The officers took exception to the Green Bay police not wanting to charge the 9 black guys with anything, and letting them walk away. Their police chief is a very "out" lesbian, so that's also not a lie or a big secret...she wears it on her sleeve.
WAY too often all the facts just don't seem to make it into the stories....Pity.
