Minneapolis police officers issue open letter condemning colleague in George Floyd's death, pledging to work toward trust


Several Minneapolis police officers issued a public letter Thursday condemning the killing of George Floyd, embracing Chief Medaria Arradondo and vowing to work toward regaining public trust.

The letter, obtained by the Star Tribune, begins, “Dear Everyone — but especially Minneapolis citizens,” and says it represents how the “vast majority” of Minneapolis police officers feel.

“We want to work with you and for you to regain your trust,” it read, while also making clear that the letter is not representative of the Police Officers’ Federation of Minneapolis, with which Arradondo said Wednesday that he was halting contract negotiations.
