(Minneapolis, MN) — The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association has criticized Ramsey County’s new traffic stop policy, calling it a slap in the face to crime victims. Yesterday, Ramsey County Attorney John Choi announced his office will end prosecution of most felony crimes that are found during a non-safety traffic stop. Choi said those crimes disproportionately affect black and brown communities and undermine trust in police. But officials with the police union — which represents more than ten-thousand public safety officials — say those who break the law will be left alone to commit more serious crimes.
