Metropolitan Urban Indian Directors Group letter to Minneapolis Police regarding George Floyd
The murder of George Floyd was an unmitigated and horrific tragedy that has brought shame onto our community. Without question, it was a complete failure of any form of moral decency or the most basic expressions of humanity by officers who have taken an oath to “serve and protect”. ... The Minneapolis Police Department has a long history violence against indigenous people and people of color. ... all indicators of contact tracing points towards the Minneapolis Police Department as the very source point for this infection that continues to spread and kill. ... The time is now to make wholesale and discernable changes to the department lest we all succumb to the death that continues to seep out of local precincts onto our streets, and into our homes. ..
