Law enforcement flexes muscle at Minnesota Capitol


Maplewood Police Chief Paul Schnell was the first to give testimony on a measure that creates restrictive new rules for police departments using body cameras. Sitting alongside GOP state Rep. Tony Cornish, a retired cop, he gave a brief statement supporting the proposal.

Over the next three hours, a parade of testifiers came before a recent House’s civil law committee to oppose the measure, many saying it would greatly limit public access to the footage. Then the panel voted overwhelming to support the measure, 11-2.
