Reduce the number of police shootings of suspects in Minnesota — that’s the assignment of a working group convened by top state officials. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison says:
“We cannot keep going from crisis to crisis to crisis. We’ve got to take a look at this and figure out what we’re going to do together.”
Ellison says every part of Minnesota will be included because officer-involved shootings occur all over the state. The working group will have public hearings in August, September and October, then make recommendations to the legislature. Among those on the panel is Clarence Castille, whose nephew Philando Castile was fatally shot by an officer who was later acquitted of manslaughter.
