(Brooklyn Center, MN) — The Minnesota Department of Human Rights says Brooklyn Center Police and Michaels Stores discriminated against a Black teen in 2019. MDHR announced the results of their investigation yesterday, saying body-worn camera footage contradicted what officers reported. In March 2019, a white store manager called the cops on a Black 16-year-old who was applying for a job, which led to three officers using unreasonable force on the teen who had his hands in the air. That manager was found to have a history of racially profiling customers and made false allegations against the teen. The department said structural change and monetary relief for the teen will be negotiated through an agreement with both parties.
