Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison says last week’s guilty verdicts against Derek Chauvin are a first step toward providing accountability for officers. But he says that’s JUST a first step…

“It’s time to transform the relationship between the community and the people who are sworn to protect them from one that is mistrustful, suspicious and in some cases terrifying into one that and empathetic, compassionate and affirming.”

The U-S attorney general this week announced the launch of an investigation into the Minneapolis police department and its policies and practices.
