After the police involved shooting murder of Justine Damond, the Black Lives Matter community of the Twin Cities, Police Watch, and loved ones of victims of police violence all gathered to march in solidarity and demand accountability from our city officials.
In response protesters occupied the light rail until being allowed in.
Once (FINALLY) allowed in, protesters in solidarity with victims of police violence entered the press conference, and Betsy Hodges made a quick and pretty cowardly exit.
As a result, the press conference filled with various local, domestic, and international press, became a press conference of, by, and for the people!
