Mike Freeman must resign!

Late Sunday night, June 13, Nicholas Kraus drove his Jeep Cherokee through the barricades at Lake and Girard and killed Deona Marie Knajdek. Barricades had been set up to protest the killing of Winston Boogie Smith by U.S. Marshals on June 3 at the Girard Avenue parking ramp. The U.S. Marshals multi-unit task force did not include Minneapolis police officers. The task force was trying to arrest Smith for illegal possession of a firearm. They claim Smith shot at them from his car. A woman in the car with Smith says she did not see Smith have a gun. There were no body cameras worn by the task force. Smith was shot by a Hennepin County sheriff and a Ramsey County sheriff. They had been prohibited from wearing body cameras by the U.S. Marshals office. After the Smith homicide, the U.S. Marshals office changed that policy and now allows all sheriffs to wear body cameras as members of the task force.
