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.

"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. So what can we do to better support people who bring you the news for that. I'm joined by bruce shapiro. 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. These unrelenting news cycles filled with violence and trauma journalists. Don't have the option of turning away from the news cycle there much. We are reporting on mass death..

"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. The mayor has the authority over the police department. So those efforts are all still going forward. Full steam brent. What was the perception of the minneapolis police department before the before. 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. I was there about almost twenty years ago in jordan neighborhood. 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. Michelle when you heard about this investigation from the department of justice into the minneapolis police department and new york. Of course your research on the interactions between citizens and police Probably informed a lot of what you're thinking in terms of recommendations for the minneapolis police department in in advance of this investigation.

"Look at some of those past Officer involved killings andbranch just wondering if the minneapolis police department has said anything about this investigation or have they just Not issued any statement so far. Well yeah the. The police department issued a statement including a reaction from chief arredondo. He basically expressed support for it. 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. The department has actually done to reform the department. And i think minneapolis is more typical of american cities in some ways than it is atypical and that the problems in minneapolis. I think our nationwide. So since two thousand and fifteen the department has actually been pretty aggressively involved in a lot of the kinds of best practices police reforms That have been suggested by things like consent decrees through the doj program and yet they have also had this continuing series of high profile. 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..

"This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. Totally unnecessary. That is what a top lieutenant in the Minneapolis Police Department said today about the way that former police officer Derrick Show Vin Pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd, he testified on the fifth day of Sheldon's murder trial. NPR's Adrian Florido has been covering the proceedings and joins us again from Minneapolis. Hey, Adrian. Hi, Elsa. All right. So today wrapped up the trial's first week, which, as you know, I've been talking about has been packed with so much emotional testimony, like from bystanders who watched Floyd died to first responders who couldn't revive him. But today the trial seemed to shift a little right. Tell us a little bit about that. Yeah. Today, the prosecution worked to build its case that Derrick show Vin used excessive force on George Floyd. And to do that they called Lieutenant Richard Zimmerman to the stand. He is the longest serving police officer in the Minneapolis PD. He's been on the force since 1985. He's the head of the homicide division. And importantly, after George Floyd's death, he was one of the department employees who publicly condemned what show Vin did. Prosecutor Matthew Frank spent time today asking him about the dangers of restraining a suspect by laying them face down. Have you ever in all the years you've been working for the Minneapolis Police department. On been trained. To kneel on the neck of someone who is handcuffed behind their back in a prone position. No, I haven't. Is that if that were done with that be considered force absolutely. What level of force might that be? That would be the top tier the deadly force. Why? Because of The fact that if you need is on a person's neck That can kill him. Not not mincing words. They're obviously right. Well, what exactly did Lieutenant Zimmerman's say about the way show Vin handle George Floyd. So here is the same prosecutor asking Zimmerman a question about what he saw in the body cam footage of George Boyd's arrest. What is your? You know, your View of that use of force during that time period. Totally unnecessary. What do you mean? Well, first of all. Pulling him down to the ground face down. And putting your knee on the neck. For that amount of time. Is just Uncalled for. I saw no reason why The officers felt they were in danger if that's what they felt. And he said, the danger is what show then I would've had to field to justify keeping his his knee on Floyd's neck for that, Monk. E mean it's not every day that you hear. A police officer, especially a senior police officer criticized Another officer, even a former one, right, right? Yeah. But on cross examination, eyes show, Vin's attorney, Eric Nelson, worked to poke holes in his testimony, his main focus being the latitude that police officers are allowed during under the police department's use of force policy when they're responding to incidents, So here's Nelson asking that the same witness a question. You would agree, however, that in the fight for your life generally speaking in a fight for your life, you is an officer are allowed to use whatever force is reasonable and necessary. Correct? Yes. And that could even involve improvisation, agreed. Yes. Minneapolis Police department policy allows a police officer to use whatever means there never are available to him to protect himself and others, right? Yes. The defense attorney there, obviously giving clues about the kind of arguments he's going to make when it's his turn to present his case that show been feared for his life that he was dealing with the dynamic situation. Struggling suspect an angry crowd. And real quick. When do we expect the defense to start calling their own witnesses? Well. The prosecution is expected to wrap up their case by the end of next week.

They put out pretty Tepid criticisms and or support for the Georgia legislation, and now that the legislation has become law, and they've been under pressure from voting rights advocates They have changed their tune on. That doesn't happen that often. Let's dig into that a little more, because obviously corporate America lobbies. Statehouses Congress for all kinds of things, right? Can you talk about how aggressive they can be in this area or how reluctant they have been in this area in the past? So corporations have two main ways that they influence policy. One is through corporate donations to particular candidates. They then spend even more money lobbying lawmakers to get the policies that they want. Now, most of the policies that a corporation wants are for its own benefit. No, this is a little bit different because voting rights advocates in Georgia put pressure on corporations not just because they were located in Georgia, but also because they had given money to Some of the politicians who created this regressive Election law in Georgia. Can you talk about a moment in recent history where we've seen corporate activism lead to significant legislative change? I think the biggest Example of this was the 2017 tax cut. And the tax cut was literally for corporations. So you had political donors putting enormous pressure on Members of Congress and the corporate tax rate was cut significantly. Another example is bathroom bills and so by bathroom bills. These are Laws at the state level that direct individuals to only use the bathroom of the gender of their birth. And one of these bathroom bills was passed in North Carolina. The end see double a pulled championship games from North North Carolina. And that got AH lot of attention and and North Carolina. Rolled back that bathroom, Phil. We've been hearing a lot, especially in the last year about corporate responsibility, so to speak. What you going to be looking for going forward to see whether this is Real or not, well, one of the things that we saw after the riots at the Capitol on January 6th. Woz corporations deciding to pull back corporate PAC money from the Republicans who objected to The electoral college votes for Joe Biden. But now there is pressure from the U. S Chamber of Commerce, which is one of the largest trade associations in America. It's also one of the largest Dark money, political spenders in America, and they're urging their members to get back in the political spending game. So one of the things that I will look at After Georgia and after the riots on January, 6th is Do any of these corporations actually changed their political spending behavior. Ciara Torres Spellissy is a professor of law at Stetson University in Gulf Port Florida. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you. There is a new attempt to bring the U. S and Iran back to the 2015 nuclear deal with one The Trump administration left in direct talks are set to begin in Vienna next Tuesday.

C and t you can you can find The link to the post and everything they're ahead of that conversation again. His drew mentioned that at eight o'clock switching gears. This is, uh This is sad. I mean, it really is, And it's one of those moments where I sat down to do notes and it was pretty much you know the entire article. What's needed to be covered here? Kim boss I am. Why I'm one of many former MPD officers and Work through this year and what she wrote and you know, and look, I'll give credit where credit's due hat tip to the tip to the Star Tribune for printing this. I think it's important. Do not go into the comments section. I made that mistake this morning. No, I'm not gonna do that. I do not go into the comment section on this editorial. She says this man again. We'll work through this here. I sit here in mourning. Had a friend over for dinner recently and she told me that to Washington, D C. Police officers have committed suicide since the civil unrest on January 6th. I know so many people will jump to blame former President Trump, but I don't I know better. You see, I was a lieutenant with the Minneapolis police department. Aside, assigned to the third Precinct, I had been a police officer in Minnesota for 37 years. I used the seven years. Just think about that 37 years serving as a member of the Minneapolis Police Department, I use the words was and had been because effective this month I am retired. I did not retire because I wanted to retire. Despite many thinking. 37 years was enough. I didn't feel as if I was done just Yet I still have a mission to complete and that is what makes leaving difficult. I think she goes on to say while our leadership held us back and we remained un supported by our state, our city and our police administration. Neighborhoods burned. We felt helpless and add insult to injury. They gave up our home and called it quote just bricks and mortar. And this is Where is you? Jacob Fried by the way. This is where the you know these air look ever like. Everybody's got feelings and emotions right? And this is where it's just It's flat out, not right toe only look at one side of the issue in the wake of something happening because she goes on to say it wasn't just bricks and mortar tow us. Right. And if you and and look if you're gonna take the angle, right? I think everybody has for the most part right unless you just lunatic. But if you're gonna take the angle that what happened at the Capitol on January, 6 was wrong. And most everybody does right. And there's an emotional attachment to those that were serving that had to go and escape and get away because of the violence that was taking place. Well, you know, I hope that you would be Honest and not a hypocrite and understand that this matters to these people, people as well, because she goes on to say it wasn't just break bricks and mortar to us. If you want to totally break down the morale in mission of police officers, hold them back and leave them hanging without any support.

And I didn't have a phone left or a desk to put a phone on. My office had been fire bombed. People now touted as peaceful protesters at the city's email and subscribed me to more than 1000 online sites. I got a call in the middle of the night. When I was out with officers in the riots from a friend of the police, who told me immediately to shut down my credit cards has all my information was out on the dark Web. This is what happened when the third Precinct got rated guys and this has been under reported and hasn't been talked about enough. This was part of the strategy of these protesters. And I say strategy because what happened that week was incredibly organized. And it was. And it happened with the complicity of leadership in the city of Minneapolis. Jacob Fright let that happen. He chose You let them let them take it over and they didn't just burn it down. They went in there and they stole personal information. Who knows what kind of evidence or ammunition or weapons? They I don't know that they might have gotten ahold of in there. But stuff like this. I mean way. Talk about systemic racism and Democrats ism and how awful it is. And how terrible it is. And how it you know, you shouldn't be judged like that. Well, that applies to people who are just doing their job as police officers, too, Right? Why should this? Why should this woman be lumped? Din with every single bad cop that's ever done anything wrong. Now you're gonna you're gonna you're gonna cast dispersions on everybody who wears that uniform. Just think about that.

That's very much against Wall Street, and there's a fundamental misunderstanding that a lot of people have of The reason why the stock market exists and how vitally important it is to our economy because it is the one of the core mechanisms on how we value the worth of a particular company and how it is able to go and raise money and capital in order to do what it does it if it is a worthy product, and people are willing to invest in it, because there is the demand for the product or service.

Some weird can handle. You can't say on air. Okay, um, blanking value. Of course it is part of the motivation. When was that they did not feel like Gamestop was as least as floundering a company as the shorter's were making it out to be, And it was done being unfairly shorted like this is a subjective call. It is a subjective call. Absolutely, absolutely. But that was the idea behind shorting. Is it supposed to be like a check on overvalued companies, right? And they didn't believe that game's up was overvalued. What's been happening with the hedge funds, at least from my understanding from what I've been reading the last couple days is that they were just picking stocks that they thought could That they thought could be shorted, and then they were manipulating things around them to make sure that it did indeed get shorted.

"More than half the homicides committed in Minneapolis this year have yet to be solved. Police officials say there are a number of factors making it harder for them to arrest murder suspects. It is yet another hurdle for a department trying to restore public trust following the police killing of George Floyd last May. Minnesota Public Radio's Brandt Williams. Reports. Kimberly Barber's brother, Frank went out after midnight and into the wee hours of the morning on November 24th to drop off a phone to a friend. Later that afternoon, One of Kimberly's other brothers called her to break the news that Frank wouldn't be coming back at all. And he was just crying. I just kept screaming. Don't tell me Don't tell me many apples, Please found 49 year old Frank Lester Barbers body in a vehicle and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. His killer is still at large. Sadly, Barber's case is not that unusual these days. So far this year, the Minneapolis Police Department has solved around 40% of its homicide cases. FBI data show that in 2019, the solve rate for similar sized cities was nearly 52%. Minneapolis Police commander Charlie Adams says there are a few reasons why the clearance rate this year is so low. Like many large U. S cities, Minneapolis has seen a significant jump in homicides, and Adam says the number of officers and investigators is shrinking. He says. The last time the city's saw so many killings was in the late 19 nineties, when the department homicide unit had more than 20 investigators, Adams says, Now there are about a dozen and I don't see me getting replacements in the future. If people continue to lead the department since the beginning of the year, more than 130 officers have either retired or taken extended leave. City officials say that's nearly triple the normal attrition rate. Homicide investigators are some of the most experienced officers to work in the homicide unit. Adam says officers have to at least achieved the rank of sergeant and have experienced in other types of investigations. He says the department's homicide investigators are doing their best under very difficult circumstances. I'm just really proud of my guys with the lack of manpower, they have that they continue to work every day and try to bring closure to these families. The majority of the families most affected by homicide are African American. And criminologist David Squire Jones says the high number of killings in the low clearance rate, combined with a history of unequal treatment of black residents presents another barrier. Jones says it's especially problematic when police who patrolled black communities are seen as being quick to make arrests for minor crimes, but are slow to arrest people for homicide. It's a real challenge, and I think it's Sort of another potential proverbial nail in the confidence. Minneapolis police departments legacy this last year all Kimberly Barbara wants is for people to come forward with information to help police find who killed her brother, Frank. She says, knowing that person is still out there. Hanser? Yes, the hardest thing I've ever had to do it in my life. It's hard. It's very hard because I can't even explain how I feel. Barber is just one of dozens of family members looking for justice. While many apples please try to find her brother's killer. They're also searching for ways to build more trust with communities of color. That's a problem that can't be solved by adding more officers for NPR News. I'm Brandt Williams in Minneapolis.

Don't tell me Don't tell me the apples, Please found 49 year old Frank Lester Barbers body in a vehicle and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. His killer is still at large. Sadly, Barber's case is not that unusual these days. So far this year, the Minneapolis Police Department has solved around 40% of its homicide cases. FBI data show that in 2019, the solve rate for similar sized cities was nearly 52%. Minneapolis Police commander Charlie Adams says there are a few reasons why the clearance rate this year is so low. Like many large U. S cities, Minneapolis has seen a significant jump in homicides, and Adam says the number of officers and investigators is shrinking. He says. The last time the city's saw so many killings was in the late 19 nineties, when the department homicide unit had more than 20 investigators, Adams says, Now there are about a dozen and I'll see if you get any replacements in the future If people continue to lead the department since the beginning of the year, more than 130 officers have either retired or taken extended leave. City officials say that's nearly triple the normal attrition rate. Homicide investigators are some of the most experienced officers to work in the homicide unit. Adams says Officers have to at least achieved the rank of sergeant and have experienced in other types of investigations. But he says the department's homicide investigators are doing their best under very difficult circumstances. I'm just really probably my guys with the lack of manpower, they have that they continue to work every day and try to bring closure to these families. The majority of the families most affected by homicide are African American. And criminologist David Squire Jones says the high number of killings in the low clearance rate, combined with a history of unequal treatment of black residents, presents another barrier. Jones says it's especially problematic when police who patrolled black communities are seen as being quick to make arrests for minor crimes, but her slow to arrest people for homicide. It's a real challenge, and I think it's Sort of another potential proverbial nail in the confidence. Minneapolis police departments legacy this last year all Kimberly Barbara wants is for people to come forward with information to help police find who killed her brother, Frank.
