The mayor of Minneapolis ran a gauntlet of angry, jeering protesters on Saturday after telling them he was opposed to their demands for de-funding the city police following George Floyd's fatal encounter with law enforcement.

"We're here because we hear you".

In recent days, the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Public Schools, and others chose to end or restrict their relationship with the Minneapolis Police Department. Frey did, and spoke to the crowd, who asked if he would commit to defunding the police. At the very least, he can't veto it.

Ellison statement called for the dismantling of the Minneapolis Police Department following the death fo George Floyd. In response to mass demonstrations, Chauvin's charges were upgraded, and the other police officers on scene have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder in the commission of a felony. Mr Floyd, an African-American man, died after being pinned under a policeman's knee for almost nine minutes in Minneapolis, sparking widespread outrage at police brutality. They have now surpassed $1 million and plan on continuing their fundraising efforts.

In a TIME op-ed, Council Member Steve Fletcher described a "decades-long history of violence and discrimination".

Every member of the Minneapolis City Council has now expressed the need for dramatic structural change.

Over the weekend it was revealed that Kanye West was pledging $2 million to support the families of Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, Black-owned businesses in crisis, and would also pay for Floyd's 6-year-old daughter, Gianna, to go to college.

The entrepreneur concluded his post by saying he won't stop "supporting" the movement and his stance won't change. They argue for shifting city dollars instead into public health programs and other initiatives aimed at preventing violent crime. That considers itself part of our community. A report from Motherboard in 2019 revealed black and brown people are more likely to be surveilled by the Neighbors app, where Ring users can post videos and photos of "suspicious" people caught on camera. "Which is why it took many people by surprise when the fandom spearheaded efforts to drown out racist hashtags", Yim said, referring to K-pop fandoms clogging up US police apps and flooding racist hashtags like "whitelivesmatter" and "WhiteOutWednednesday" with their favorite K-pop memes and fancies, rendering them useless. Amazon did not respond to request for comment regarding whether it will continue its partnerships with local police forces.
