Early this morning police removed protesters from the 4th precinct in north Minneapolis. Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau says public safety was the primary concern in removing the protesters, who had been camped out in front of the precinct since November 15th, when police shot and killed Jamar Clark. She says eight people were arrested this morning, seven for obstructing the legal process and one for trespassing. The arrests were done without incident and there were no injuries. Harteau estimates overtime costs for the police department during the occupation at around $750,000.
