Conservatives have tried to make it a race issue. The dirty cop who shot the woman is Black, Somali and Muslim. That's basically a giveaway for the white extremists hell-bent on dividing us.
It seems like Betsy Hodges is catching flack. The mayor of Minneapolis is facing calls to resign in the wake of the high profile shooting of Justine Damond. The Australian yoga instructor was shot and killed by Minneapolis Police.
The officer who shot her is in the freezer pending an investigation into whether he used justified force.
The mayor was doing a presser when she was interrupted by a protester. Hodges was shouted down by Black Lives Matter and Women's March protesters.

Unfortunately Hodges won't resign. But she is holding someone responsible for this.
On Friday, Hodges fired Janee Harteau, the Minneapolis Police chief out the cannon.
She wrote a statement to the junk food media and shared it online.
She quickly appointed a successor. Hodges nominates Assistant Chief Medaria "Rondo" Arradondo as the new Minneapolis police chief.

It was said that Hodges was at odds with Harteau.
The recent shooting of Damond has touched a nerve with the city. The Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area is still reeling over the results from the Philando Castile shooting.
Castile was a lawful carry and he was shot and killed by Jeronimo Yanez, a Falcon Heights cop who believed that Castile was reaching for his firearm instead of his wallet.

They want more accountability for bad cops and politicians held responsible for the deaths of lawful and unarmed people of color.
Hodges, Gov. Mark Dayton (D) and Sen. Amy Klobucher (D-MN) are in danger of losing their spots. Minnesota is a Democratic leaning state. But in the age of Trump, who knows what could happen.
Democrats are not popular. Republicans are hated among the general public, but their supporters are extremely loyal and they will support Donald J. Trump regardless of what he does.
Democrats need to get back to the issues that face all Americans. Police reform and gun control are issues that seriously need to be addressed.
We have more mass shootings, more police shootings, and more accidental shootings in this country more than anyplace else.
