As state reels from another fatal police shooting, more reform measures headed to House Floor

The long shadow of two fatal police shootings in the Twin Cities fell over the House Judiciary Finance and Civil Law Committee as it met Wednesday to consider four bills on police reform and accountability.

There is the ongoing trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin charged in the wrongful death of George Floyd in May 2020.

There is Sunday’s fatal shooting of Daunte Wright by a now-former Brooklyn Center police officer, who has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

There are the ongoing street protests in the Twin Cities, some in violation of mandatory curfews, to demand authorities make systemic changes to how policing is done in this country.
