Minneapolis Police Chief: We’ve ‘Contributed’ to ‘Deficit of Hope’ – ‘Many’ Rioters Weren’t People We Recognized as Residents

During a press conference on Thursday, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo stated that there is “a deficit of hope in our city,” and the Minneapolis Police Department “has contributed to that deficit of hope,” but criminality that hurts the community further will not be allowed. He also said that “many of the people that were involved in the criminal conduct” on Wednesday were people that nobody recognized as residents of the city.
