Video prompts investigation into police handcuffing black teens in Minneapolis park

 


A viral video of four black teens being handcuffed by Minneapolis park police after an officer drew a gun on them at Minnehaha Park on Tuesday has prompted calls for an independent investigation into the incident.

Brianna Lindell posted the video, which had more than 1 million views on Facebook as of Wednesday evening. She alleged in her post that she first noticed that the four teens were being harassed by a white teen who was using racial slurs, telling them he had a knife while holding a metal trash can lid. A girl with him was on the phone.
