Minneapolis Police Chief: Too Dangerous For Officers to Confront Looters
KARE ANCHOR: I want to make sure I’m understanding you correctly. So what you are saying is that it’s too dangerous for police to directly confront the looters. So you’ve made the decision to let that site go for now and focus on keeping the rest of the neighborhood as safe as possible?
CHIEF: Absolutely. Our officers have had molotov cocktails thrown at them, rocks and other projecticles. Their safety is paramount.
