"minneapolis police department" Discussed on THE NEWS with Anthony Davis
"Coming up on 5 minute news. Report shows systemic racism in Minneapolis police department. U.S. Marine vet released by Russia in prisoner exchange. And 6 million Californians ordered to cut water use due to drought. It's Thursday April 28. I'm Anthony Davis. An investigation launched after the execution of George Floyd in 2020, found that the Minneapolis police department has engaged in a pattern of race discrimination for at least the past decade. The Minnesota department of human rights said on Wednesday it will negotiate a court enforceable agreement called a consent decree with the city of Minneapolis to address the long list of problems identified in the report. The agency found that the city and police department have engaged in a pattern or practice of race discrimination in violation of state law. Its report detailed evidence showing disparities in how officers use force stop search arrest and cite people of color, particularly black people compared to white people in similar circumstances. The report said race based policing in Minneapolis is primarily a result of police force culture, officers, supervisors and trainers receive deficient training, which emphasizes a paramilitary approach to policing that results in officers unnecessarily escalating encounters or using inappropriate levels of force, it said. The report also said the department maintains a culture where officers consistently use racist, misogynistic and disrespectful language and are rarely held accountable for it. Without fundamental organizational culture changes, reforming MPD's policies, procedures and trainings will be meaningless the report said. The report found that officers use higher rates of more severe force against black residents than white people in similar circumstances. It found that Minneapolis police officers are more likely to stop vehicles with people of color and indigenous individuals often for minor offenses. Minneapolis police improperly excessively and disproportionately cite black people for disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process the report said. It also found that police used covert or fake social media accounts to surveil and engage black individuals, black organizations, and elected officials unrelated to criminal activity without a public safety objective. In contrast, the report said officers did not track and surveil white people in cases unrelated to criminal activity and did not use covert social media accounts to track white supremacist or white nationalist groups. Russia and the United States have carried out an unexpected prisoner exchange in a time of high tensions, trading on Wednesday, a marine veteran jailed by Moscow for a convicted Russian drug trafficker serving a long prison sentence in America. The deal involving Trevor Reed, an American imprisoned for nearly three years, would have been a notable diplomatic maneuver even in times of peace. But it was all the more surprising because it was done as Russia's war with Ukraine has driven relations with the U.S. to their lowest point in decades. On the other end of the swap was constantin yaroshenko, a Russian pilot who'd been serving a 20 year federal sentence for conspiring to smuggle cocaine into the U.S.. Even as the Biden administration trumpeted the swap, it made clear the resolution did not Herald a broader breakthrough between the countries. Russian forces remained determined in their assault on Ukraine. The U.S. and Western Allies continued to impose punishing sanctions and other Americans still remain jailed in Russia. The swap, the culmination of long-standing requests by both countries, as well as private diplomatic wrangling, took place in turkey, where the two planes pulled up side by side, read a 30 year old former marine from Texas, was arrested in the summer of 2019 after Russian authorities said he assaulted an officer while being driven by police to a police station following a night of heavy drinking. Even on Wednesday his parents joy was mitigated by the concern they said they felt about his physical appearance. They were struck by his unsteady gait and how thin he looked as TV footage captured him walking flanked by guards from a van to the jet. Reed was en route back to the U.S., traveling with roger Carson's. The U.S. government special presidential envoy for hostage affairs. Southern California's gigantic water supplier has taken the unprecedented step of requiring about 6 million people to cut their outdoor watering to one day a week as an extended drought plagues the state following another dry winter. The board of the metropolitan water district of Southern California declared a water shortage emergency and is requiring certain cities and water agencies its supplies to implement the cutback on June 1st and enforce it or face hefty fines. We don't have enough water supplies right now to meet normal demand. The water is not there. District spokesperson Rebecca kimmich said. This is unprecedented territory. We've never done anything like this before. The metropolitan water district restrictions apply to areas of Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino counties that rely mostly on state water supplied through the district, including some parts of the city of Los Angeles, the affected areas are primarily urban. But record dry conditions due to climate change, have strained the system, lowering reservoir levels and the state water project, which gets its water from the Sacramento San Joaquin river Delta. The metropolitan water district said that the 2020 and 2021 water years had the least rainfall on record for two consecutive years. California governor Gavin Newsom has asked people statewide to voluntarily reduce their water consumption by 15%,.

The evidence is clear across the country. Those are democrats sake. Okay those are all democrats all calling for defunding the police. I cannot find video anywhere. Any republicans calling for defunding the police if you think that voting against your bailouts has something to do with the funding the police. I mean your again your your gas lighting your intentionally lying to the american people. Those are all democrats calling. We want to take money away from the leaves at the end there. I think that was rafael. Warnock the senator from georgia. And he's basically saying we don't want to defend them like of them. We wanna take their money away. Yeah and then you know what happens then. They don't have the backing putting aside that defunding the police you take money away. You take resources away from them. Well then there's probably going to be less of them. They'll be less patrols and everything he says. Well then they're going to go into certain places an economically depressed areas and blah blah blah. You know when they do studies time after time. Those people generally want more police. They want less crime okay. Best not to defend every police action. Everyone knows that. I don't think i need to say that at this point but when you defend the police and then you don't get the city's backing the police more crime comes in you guys all the no. No the number is new york.

Lawmakers Continue Police Reform Negotiations
"May of last year, lawmakers in every state and the District of Columbia have introduced more than 3000 police reform bills. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports. That's double the number introduced in 2017. Theo U. S Department of Justice is investigating the Minneapolis police and other departments. And brought civil rights charges against Derrick Show. Vin and the other former officers involved in George Floyd's burger Cities and school districts have responded to Minneapolis public schools, joined districts across the country and cutting ties with police. And Minneapolis City Council members made headlines when they promised to defund the police. That's provocative shorthand for rerouting public safety dollars to social services that can reduce crime. And it's also something we have really heard from the general public. I asked my colleague, Minnesota public radio reporter Brandt Williams when he knew something was different. Well, I guess Anjo like many people, when I first saw that bystander video Usually there is a situation between a police officer and somebody there's a officer makes a split second decision where they fire a weapon. It's over in a second, but this happened Over nine minutes. We heard George Floyd pleading for his life, and we saw the reaction of the officer Derrick Show Vin, just not changing his expression, and he kept the pressure on. So I think that's when I knew as a boy, You know, it's gonna be really hard for this just to be pushed under the rug or just kind of forgotten about. During the next news cycle. And Brant the response from city officials that was swift as as well different than than what we've seen in the past, starting with the quick firing of officer direct Children. Right that that was different. I mean, usually there's got to be an investigation or there has to be due diligence done here before we make any disciplinary decisions. But this was the next day chief Mid Air. Arredondo came right out and said that this officer is no longer A member of the Minneapolis Police Department, and he fired the other three officers involved as well.

"The pandemic the cycle the threats to journalists the economic pressures of the industry. Those are huge stresses that are just ongoing trauma post traumatic stress post traumatic stress disorder. Is something different post traumatic stress. Disorder comes from the direct exposure to or the secondary handling of empathetic connection interviews or dealing with involving overwhelming violence or cruelty or death or chronic threat and it has to do with the brain and body staying in a kind of a permanent alarm state In which we there are characteristic psychological changes traumatic memories that come back at us when we don't want in that are interfering A sense of anxiety arousal being unable to concentrate get to sleep or the other direction. People who become numb and avoidance or whose worldview becomes very dark those are profound psychological changes that begin with our biological response to fear and threat. And what we know from research into journalists is that our profession is exposed through too far more trauma than the general public and even more than some other frontline professions. We obviously reporters who are covering war exposed to a lot of trump but so are reporters who cover Violent street demonstrations or confrontations with the police so our reporters who cover crime and fires but so are journalists. Who never leave the desk. Who are dealing with a steady of graphic imagery and we can't look away because it's our job. Think of you any of the horrible police violence videos over the course of the last week. They're tough for all citizens to look at Particularly people of color particularly people who identify with the victims in those videos but for journalists and editors mp reducers. What the public doesn't see is that we have to view those decide which ones to use verify them. Edit them run them past other editors and producers constantly re edit them. There's a whole process which means that a lot of people who never leave. The desk are dealing with a steady diet of graphic imagery a steady diet of distressing information. Which eventually can overtop. You're sort of personal. Damn your personal levy. Just as much as front-line trauma exposure We know that that these mechanisms mechanisms how the brain responds are very close to what we use. As journalists every day in our work rely on being able to be present in the moment not overwhelmed by last year's police shooting video owner trying to do today story about we rely on being able to focus to put together complex information to get along with colleagues to make empathetic connection with sources with audiences with colleagues.

"First of all i think for individual newsrooms It's an immediate loss in the middle of intersecting national crises to lose gifted energetic deeply committed journalists is always a problem secondly for those teams in particular but for the profession as a whole This is really quite consequential because we're not just losing in these cases individual journalists. We're losing mentors and leaders. People who are the bridge builders between generations of journalists who carry the experience and wisdom of past crises or who as women in journalism have broken through various kinds of glass ceilings role models for younger colleagues. And i worry very much about a loss of mentor ship and a loss of leadership at a time of great roiling in the news business. It really can be costly to people's news judgment. It means that younger journalists may be an stuck baby stuck reinventing the wheel and also that some of the change that has happened in making newsrooms of slightly better places to work over the last decade or so may be lost as these committed leaders leave and other economic pressures come in may cause newsrooms to shrink workloads to go up. There's a lot of dangerous stuff going on out there and again this. I don't think needs to should be understood. As media navel-gazing this is about a threat to press freedom a gifted journalist or gifted editor or producer. Who leaves their job because of the impact of post traumatic stress disorder or who leaves their job because of burnout and burn out is not just being extra tired. It's a real collapse of capacity that's recognized by the world health organization as occupational mental health issue. If we're losing people to post traumatic stress disorder to burn out to other kinds of psychological injury That's a kind of censorship as effectively as if a reporter was j elder shutdown were deprived of their insight deprived of their voice deprived of Their bearing witness to the times. We live in That's a big loss for american society at a time. When we're really navigating a big national argument about the future of america you mentioned a couple of things burn out and ptsd said burnout is the Is is recognized by As an issue that is an occupational mental health issue. How do we define burn out versus. Ptsd for journalists right now. Because i think often we think of post traumatic stress. Disorder is something that only happens to journalists who are in war zones covering conflict And we think about burnout is something. I think that happens to people who work in offices who are particularly tired. Why are those not accurate Descriptors of what these things mean. And then how do we define for journalists. How can someone say. Okay i have. Ptsd or i have burned out. So i i think we are talking about two different issues which at the moment art intersecting because of this unrelenting new cycle that we've been talking about for journalists burnout in any profession in medicine in law enforcement in in offices is Simply a condition that results from chronic workplace stress that becomes unmanageable. that is the definition of burnout. It's about the brains incapacity. Even in high stress performing professions like journalism. The the brains fatigue. Eventually you know A an olympic athlete. A marathon runner will eventually fatigue and journalists are no different. Their performance goes up. The stress goes up as deadline gets closer but if stress is open ended an unremitting we get tired performance drops off and at the far end of that you get burnout. This radical loss of capacity. Which is all about occupational stress and it's as true of people in the field as it is. The people behind the desk. Burnout is purely about unrelenting. Open ended and unremitting stress which now in journalism is coming from several directions at once..

"Processing the news or informally Over lunch or over dinner afterwards An and it is very costly and some news. Organizations are trying to come to grips with this but as a real challenge there is also I think the flip side to that camaraderie is also this sort of very rugged individualists way that we think of journalists right that they should be. You know we're out there reporting and you know we. We should not have any feelings one way or the other and we should be able to take on any assignment that is thrown at us and most of us do that at i think because we love what we do but there is also a mental health Effect that can have. And i'm wondering how receptive newsrooms before this burnout epidemic Started were to their reporters and editors talking about mental health And whether or not you're seeing more receptiveness to that now i mean. I know that you know a lot of journalists are afraid to say. I am struggling Because they feared that they might lose their job mean. Historically in the news business there has been a lot of stigma. Their first of all is kind of old news culture. That says if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen and there's also the people who get into news are often Competitive we're looking over our shoulders at our colleagues. Were worried about getting the next assignment. And we have a kind of inter stigma as well sometimes about getting help. We're about talking talking about these issues. the good news is that there has been a slow moving but lately building now generational change going on in journalism where first of all among younger reporters and editors fox now in their twenties early thirties As part of a general generational shift. I think there's a much greater openness to talking about the impact of covering difficult stories. In fact i now sometimes have to turn my usual wrap around and and instead of saying you know you need shake the stuff seriously..

"More than a bit make that burned out to a crisp and it turns out. We're not alone. According to a recent from the job site indeed more than fifty two percent of respondents reported experiencing burnout in twenty twenty one for journalists like me that burn out has been due in part from our inability to step away from the news between covid nineteen. The election protests against police brutality and more journalists have been caught up in an endless cycle of traumatic news for at least more than a year. And that's been forcing some journalists to step down and take a break recently. A number of very prominent journalists from the editorial director of the texas tribune to the editor of wired announced. They'd be leaving their jobs because of burnout.

The executive director of the dart center for journalism and trauma a project of columbia journalism school. Bruce great to have you with us era. Glad to be your tenzin of navel-gazing And i know that people have many different feelings about the media. I will say though. That burnout is something that i think. A lot of people whether they work in media or not are experiencing but these very high profile you know departures. I think are signaling. Something that we as journalists need to look at so let's start with why so many journalists are feeling burnt out this this is. This is really important. I've tenzin over the last who i've been spending a lot of time in newsrooms via zoom talking journals about the impact of of this period and a few things are apparent on the one hand people who report the news who produce the news who are in front of the camera and behind the desk have the same very challenging. Big stresses and fears That that the rest of society has we are citizens and we are afraid of covid. Nineteen were frustrated by working at home. We are having to manage boundaries like everybody else. We are fearful for our relatives and people we love. All of that is a kind of open ended stress in and of itself. But in addition i think what the public doesn't see is that there have been a couple of other sources of extraordinary open ended unremitting stress for the people who carry us the news every day One of them is that With the arrival of covid. nineteen and social distancing. I'm working at home. Journalists had to completely reinvent the delivery of news this part you don't seek the paper still arrives on your desk. The bulletin still arrives in your inbox. Were still on air. But the mechanism for delivery the process the workflow had to be completely invented over the last year And has been. Reinvented amid as you were saying.

"And so we really wanted to go and where the problem was most acute right where people were closest to the problems in policing and what we found You know which won't surprise anybody. These days was the same thing that we've been talking about Earlier in the program right that residents particularly residents of color are experiencing pervasive negative encounters with police officers including getting pulled over in cars and getting stopped when they're on the street and being spoken to rudely being treated with hostility by officers and that creates a real sense of distrust of the police department Particularly when per violent crime continues in the community so people had the sense. That law enforcement was not only failing to protect them From victimization in their community but that police were themselves a form of violence in a form of harm because they were constantly stopping and harassing residents. Brent. we've seen Calls for defunding or abolishing the police in fact the minneapolis police department had wasn't weren't they supposed to disband to a certain extent. What happened with that or sure that was last year following. George floyd killing the city council Proposed a charter of a change. The charter said he's charter. That would allow them to basically dismantle the police department in replace it with a different agency that failed because the charter commission felt like they didn't have enough time to properly vet the idea in so it didn't get on the ballot last year. That effort got revised this year. The council also proposed another similar charter amendment A group of citizens have also started a petition. Drive to get that. Also on on the ballot. And there's also change A foot in the the city's charter commission itself is exploring the idea of of changing the charter to to change the how the balance of power works between the council and the mayor.

Derek chauvin killed. George floyd by residence at least right. Well i'll tell you as somebody who also used to live in north minneapolis.

There was a a young boy was ex- according to police accidentally shot during high risk raid at house word spread around the neighborhood that the police actually shot and killed this young black man. A young boy in that sparked a riot That was just one of many incidents that led to calls from the community to actually put place the minneapolis. Police department under federal receivership. Now instead of doing that they engaged in a federally mediated agreement. That started back in two thousand and three and that agreement expired in two thousand eight. But they actually. We started that process last year. After george floyd was killed so this has been going on for a long time. There's been federal intervention before although not as invasive so to say is This particular and or extensive as as this current investigation. So yes. there's been a ongoing. I'm quite contentious relationship between members of particularly the black community in minneapolis police department.

I i've spoken with Some people who are have worked with the chief in the past they say this is something that could bolster his efforts to bring about a change in police culture a however we have not heard any comment from the police federation as michelle. What type of. I mean the the you've done studies on these police departments in north minneapolis in particular. How would you describe the history of the minneapolis police department and its relations with black and brown residents of the city. Sure yeah so for the past five years or so. I've been doing a study of the minneapolis. Police department looking at it from the perspective of community perceptions of the police activists demands for changes in policing And then what.

Police killings And more routine sort of day to day harassment of residents particularly back black and indigenous residents. And so there's a long history in minneapolis. Both of Police misconduct and police abuse of police reform and activism to change policing michelle. This is supposed to be a pattern or practice investigation. What do we know about these types of investigations. So these types of investigations were relatively common under the obama administration and then petered out during the trump administration. They you know at their height are still touching only a handful of departments. There's eighteen thousand police departments nationwide. And so you can really only respond to kind of the the the most high profile cases and cities. But i think what the pattern and practice investigations allow us to do is to as The attorney general said to really get at these more systemic issues rather than these one off cases and try to see. What's under girding those problems. And ideally i think the the model was that some of the forms and consent decrees that came out of this process could be applied to other places. Right could be that same. Package of reforms could be implemented in other kinds of cities. And i think one of the concerns activists have today is whether the return of these pattern and practice. Investigations will help to or will Block efforts to really reimagine policing and kind of move away from Police reform and towards really thinking about alternative systems of public safety..
