Chicago Mayor snubs Frey by abruptly withdrawing from forum

Nobody's saying exactly why Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot abruptly withdrew from a high profile virtual forum with Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey scheduled for Friday. But the Chicago Tribune strongly hinted that the reputation of Frey and the city he allowed to descend into chaos that erupted nationwide more than preceded him. Mayor Lori Lightfoot pulled out of a virtual roundtable hosted by Crain's Chicago Business to avoid appearing on the same digital stage as Minneapolis Mayor Jacob  Frey, who has been a lightning rod for criticism after the  police killing of George Floyd, sources told the  Tribune. Lightfoot had been scheduled to...

Minneapolis Dodges Police Ban on the Ballot for Now

Good news for Minneapolis residents like Peter Hayes, whose first-hand account of trying to keep his family safe with "bullets flying" around his neighborhood recently made the pages of the Star Tribune.

But nearly every night for the past several weeks both sounds have cracked through the air in my neighborhood. I relax now when I hear the former.

SURRENDER: How Minneapolis voluntarily relinquished its streets to a mob of vandals, thieves, and arsonists

The video of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis on Memorial Day is sickening. There is no way that arresting a man for an alleged minor infraction should involve a police officer putting his knee on that man’s neck for nearly eight minutes while he cries out, “I can’t breathe” and then goes silent. The police are there to maintain law and order and protect the public. Those laws apply to the police, and George Floyd was a member of that public. George Floyd’s death was bound to provoke a strong reaction, especially as relations between police and African Americans have been...

MN National Guard General Who Ended Twin Cities Riots Gets a Big Promotion

The Minnesota National Guard commander whose soldiers effectively quelled the Twin Cities riots overnight once Gov. Tim Walz authorized the necessary troops to do the job has gotten a big-time promotion. Major Gen. Jon Jensen, who served for three years as Minnesota Adjutant General, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to become director of the Army National Guard with 350,000 national guard troops across the country under his command. Several deployments abroad are listed among the highlights on the now three-star general's resume noted in the Star Tribune. An Iowa native and Northwest Missouri State University graduate, Jensen has served in the...
