By a 56% to 44% margin, voters said “no” to a charter amendment that would have replaced the Minneapolis Police Department with a new Department of Public Safety focused on public health solutions. So what's next for police reform in Minneapolis?
While Sen. Tim Scott has gotten the bulk of the blame for police reform failing, Bridgett Floyd, George Floyd's sister, said she doesn't "feel that Biden is stepping up as the President and doing the right thing."
The rhetoric following the failure to pass police reform placed the blame squarely on Democrats embracing "defund the police" language, but two law enforcement groups have joined those who suggest that's a lie pushed by Sen. Tim Scott.
The 67-year-old politician was named as a potential vice-presidential running mate to President Biden during the 2020 elections. Now Bass' name is being mentioned as a part of the field competing for a chance to replace the city's current mayor, Eric Garcetti, who is term-limited.
