N-Double-A-C-P President Cornell Brooks says he told Governor Mark Dayton and community leaders at a Sunday afternoon meeting that Minnesota needs stronger racial profiling laws, independent investigations and vigorous prosecution of police officers who misbehave. And Brooks had a message for whom he called his “brothers and sisters in blue”: “Stand beside the activists in the streets. Police your own. Push for racial profiling laws that work. Be candid and honest about the problems in your ranks and clean it up. It’s been done elsewhere.” He says it’s better for law enforcement to clean up its own ranks rather than have the Department of Justice come in afterwards. Brooks argues law enforcement will be better if police have commmunity support.
