Minneapolis, Minnesota
Posted @withrepost • MPR News] Officials with the ACLU-MN say an injunction approved by a federal court judge today will restrict the types of force Minneapolis police officers can use against peaceful protesters.

The measure is part of a class action suit filed by the ACLU on behalf of 12 protesters who say Minneapolis police used unnecessary and excessive force to suppress protesters’ First Amendment rights during protests which followed the police killing of George Floyd in 2020.

Plaintiff attorney Josh Rissman called the injunction historic.

“The City of Minneapolis has agreed to an injunction enforceable in federal court,” said Rissman in a statement. “Anytime the Minneapolis Police Department unlawfully uses rubber bullets, mace or tear gas against peaceful protesters, we can immediately seek to enforce the injunction.”

CAIR-MN Calls for Probe of Possible Bias Motive for Robbery, Vandalism of Minneapolis Mosque

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 11/29/2022) - The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) today called on law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for a break-in and robbery at Karmel Mall Mosque in Minneapolis, Minn.

On early hours of Thursday Nov. 24, security cameras of the mosque captured what appeared to be a white male suspect entering and breaking into the mosque office. The suspect reportedly damaged a door and took a computer, donation equipment and cash. The total loss is estimated at $10,000. The suspect chose to only burglarize and vandalize the mosque and not touch any of the mall stores.

In a statement, CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said:

“In places of worship, communities should feel safe and secure, and law enforcement authorities must take threats seriously and address them appropriately. While it’s too early to determine the motive, this attacker chose the mosque over business in his effort to target, burglarize and damage.”

He said mosque officials have started a fundraising campaign to help raise funds to cover the loss and to help increase security at the Mosque.

For those interested in helping, they can donate to the mosque fundraising campaign for recovery loss and increasing security. he history of the state or nation for one state.
