Minnesota Governor Tim Walz called a series of police reform measure which passed the Senate this week “weak sauce” and unacceptable. State Senator Julie Rosen of Vernon Center says real reform takes time and all counties can’t be treated the same.
“You cannot force your will on police reform as fast as this Governor wants to do this,” said Rosen. “And you cannot treat all 87 counties the same because of what’s going on with one police department.”
Rosen says it’s not the state’s job to correct the problems with law enforcement in Minneapolis. She says those issues need to be corrected by local elected officials.
