NINE of the council’s 12 members appeared at a rally in a city park Sunday afternoon and vowed to end policing as the city currently knows it, Your Content has learned.

The council members ended up standing before hundreds of people on a grassy hill and pledged to begin the process of taking apart the Police Department in its current form.

Minneapolis was the center of both violent and peaceful protests following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd. 

‘It shouldn’t have taken so much death to get us here,’ said Kandace Montgomery, the director of Black Vision at the rally. ‘We’re safer without armed, unaccountable patrols supported by the state hunting black people.’
