Minneapolis schools urged to break contract with police


David Joles – Star Tribune

A Minneapolis police officer and school resource officer does rounds in the hallways Friday, Jan. 18, 2019 at Minneapolis Roosevelt High, in Minneapolis.

Citing a "blatant disregard for black lives" on the part of city police, a Minneapolis school board member is calling upon the district to sever its contract with the department for school resource officers (SROs), or cops in the schools.

Josh Pauly tweeted on Friday that he would be pushing for board approval of the move on Tuesday, and he added that he already had the support of Chairwoman Kim Ellison and Board Member Siad Ali.

"Our communities are in pain and our city is on fire," Pauly said in reference to the death of George Floyd and the protests that followed. "The people of our city are demanding justice."
