    Rochester city officials claim the head of the police union lied about when he received the bodycam footage of Daniel Prude's suffocation death that has led to week-long protests in New York's third-largest city.  The city published the emails on Thursday showing that Police Locust Club President Mike Mazzeo was sent the bodycam footage back in April.

    The Minneapolis Charter Commission wisely, if unpredictably, told the Minneapolis City Council that its plan to reimagine public safety was not ready to go on the ballot this November. Predictably, this was met with outrage from the activist class who insisted the delay was an example of democracy denied. Jeremiah Ellison, for example, a council member in favor of abolishing the police department to be replaced by a Department of Happy Thoughts and Good Wishes, said of the commission’s decision, “this is not democracy. In a democracy the people decide. But I guess today the Charter Commission decided otherwise.” Ellison is wrong. The way it works is that the charter is the city’s constitution. To amend it requires adult thinking,...

    Bill Maher, the longtime political satirist and host of HBO’s Real Time, harbors an Ahab-like obsession with “cancel culture”—the theory that prominent “politically incorrect” (to borrow his catchphrase) or “controversial” folks are being pushed out of their jobs by bad-faith online mobs. This likely stems from the time when, six days after the 9/11 attacks, Maher eventually had his show Politically Incorrect canceled by Sinclair after calling the terrorists involved “not cowardly” for “staying in the airplane when it hits the building,” a statement that had come on the heels of Maher comparing his dogs to “retarded children.” In a matter of months, however, he was given a brand-new show by HBO, which he’s hosted for the last 17...

    The Detroit cops seen driving through protesters in viral video thought they were being “fired upon,” their police chief said as his department released dramatic dashcam footage of the chaos.

The raid was similar to one last October that involved another investigation into a separate department over the purchase of a building in a posh area of London.

    Says an MPR story, “The Hennepin County judge overseeing the trial of four former police officers charged in the killing of George Floyd last month warned elected officials against making public statements about the merits of the case, saying they endanger the defendants’ right to a fair trial and could lead to a change in venue. Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill stopped short of issuing a gag order on attorneys, but he said one is likely if public statements continue.” In the Star Tribune, Mara Klecker writes: “Officials at the University of Minnesota as well as the cities of Edina and Rochester on Monday announced new requirements on wearing face masks in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19....

    Campaigners mourned 'the end of Hong Kong as we know it' today after China passed a sweeping new national security law which critics say will smother the city's freedoms.  The legislation was unanimously approved by China's rubber-stamp parliament, little more than six weeks after it was first unveiled.   'It marks the end of Hong Kong that the world knew before,' said democracy campaigner Joshua Wong, adding that 'sweeping powers and ill-defined law' would make Hong Kong into a 'secret police state'.  China promised the city 50 years of freedoms when it was handed over from British rule in 1997, but the UK, US, European Union and UN have all voiced fears that the new law will be used to stifle...

              This weekend, citizens from across the state gathered at Nashville’s Legislative Plaza Sunday to support law enforcement, but not without sparring verbally with left-wing protestors — the same protestors who have occupied that space for weeks. Pro-police demonstrators formally called their event “The Back the Badge Rally.” Left-wing protestors shouted profanities against both the police and U.S. President Donald Trump. But folks on the other side of the plaza held signs saying how much they supported police. They waved American flags. They sang “Bad Boys,” the theme to the television show COPS. They asked drivers passing by to wave if they too appreciated law enforcement. And, unlike the people on the opposite end...

    The four Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd’s killing have received a trial date of March 8, reports The Wall Street Journal. Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill said the date was made under the assumption that the former officers — Derek Chauvin, 44; J.

    A Missouri couple under fire for brandishing guns in the front yard of their home as protesters passed told police the group broke a gate to get onto the private street, and the pair say they only retrieved their firearms when they spotted “multiple” people who were already armed, department records show. Al Watkins, an attorney for Mark McCloskey, 63, and his 61-year-old wife, Patricia, said the protest was largely peaceful and the pair did not bring their guns outside of the home until two men in particular, both of whom were white, started menacing them. The McCloskeys, he said, were hesitant to come forward with the full story out of fear that they would "disparage the importance of Black Lives Matter." "At the time,...

    A week after a "defund the police" protest became a full-blown occupation outside City Hall, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday he has a plan for the New York City police department budget to be slashed by $1 billion.

But he said spending on capital projects would be reduced by $500 million and there could be changes to the department's role in policing schools. Money would be deferred to the city's chronically underfunded public housing system and to youth programs, de Blasio said. Get...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Supporters of police reform say homeless outreach should not be the responsibility of the NYPD. They also want social workers, not the police, to respond to calls about the mentally ill, CBS2’S Aundrea Cline-Thomas reported Monday.

One officer is accused of using an illegal chokehold and is facing criminal charges. It comes as city leaders consider transferring the responsibility of responding to people with mental illness from police to social workers as part of broader reform efforts. “My approach has to be one of understanding that I am not reasoning with...

They allege police acted on a false narrative.
