More Hmong Cops for North Minneapolis?

My one-time colleague Jeff Skrenes recently posted a great commentary on a September 12th meeting to discuss the findings of a U of M report calling for more Hmong police officers in North Minneapolis, particularly near my neighborhood.

Jeff's summary is making the rounds, including The Adventures of Johnny Northside, which is a must-read blog for most folks interested in the no-bullshit comings and goings and not-goings of North Minneapolis.

A big thanks to Yia Yang, Melinda Yang and Jay Clark for doing so much great organizing on this issue, and I look forward to seeing future developments on this issue.

I hope eventually we will get to see the perspective of other Hawthorne Neighborhood Council staff and board members as well as our city council representatives on this issue, as the case is quite compelling.
