Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey contends Minneapolis Police Department should obey one—not two—consent decrees to reform the force. State and federal authorities are investigating the police for civil rights abuses.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey rejected the prospect of imposing more than one oversight body to rectify the systemic abuses committed by the Minneapolis Police Department. Instead, the mayor’s office said on Monday, the city was open to “one consent decree” in the effort to reform the department.

Activists File Ethics Complaint Against Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A coalition of Minneapolis residents gathered Friday afternoon at city hall to demand an ethics investigation into Mayor Jacob Frey over his alleged lying about banning no-knock raids. The complaint comes a week after a Minneapolis Police Department SWAT team member fatally shot the 22-year-old Black man inside a downtown apartment during a no-knock raid. The group accuses Frey of lying and misleading residents about banning no-knock warrants. “We the residents of Minneapolis deserve better,” said Jeanelle Austin, the founder of Racial Agency Initiative, on Friday. “We deserve to feel safe in our homes and in our streets. We deserve leadership that is trustworthy, fair and accountable.” The city says residents have filed at least 235 ethics complaints against Frey since the shooting. Critics have called for the mayor to resign. Frey’s office issued a statement Friday afternoon: “Just as past politically motivated complaints were dismissed without merit during the last election, these baseless allegations will be recognized as such.” WCCO-TV’s Esme Murphy will ask the mayor about Locke’s death and his response to the shooting on WCCO Sunday Morning. Watch for their conversation at 10:30 a.m.
