    The City of Minneapolis has reached a tentative settlement with a man who filed a lawsuit after witnessing George Floyd's murder. Court documents obtained by WCCO show the city attorney's plans to present the agreement to the City Council on April 25. If the council approves, Mayor Jacob Frey then has seven days to approve or veto the settlement. The agreement is with Donald Williams. He can be seen on Tou Thao's body cam video asking the now-former officers to intervene. In the lawsuit, Williams said Thao and Derek Chauvin taunted Floyd, Williams and other bystanders who expressed concern and...

    What used to be her spot to catch some fresh air has become anything but for Bee Bletsian in the building she’s called home for 13 years. Just south of downtown Minneapolis, behind an old brick building on the corner of 5th Avenue South and East 24th street, on a city-owned lot, it’s easy to see why.

  • Lyft, Uber plan to leave Minneapolis after city council forces them to hike driver pay

    Lyft and Uber said they will cease operations in Minneapolis after the city’s council voted Thursday to override a mayoral veto and require that ride-hailing services increase driver wages to the equivalent of the local minimum wage of $15.57 an hour. Lyft called the ordinance “deeply flawed,” saying in a statement that it supports a minimum earning standard for drivers but not the one passed by the council. “It should be done in an honest way that keeps the service affordable for riders,” Lyft said. “This ordinance makes our operations unsustainable, and as a result, we are shutting down operations...

    The complaint says that the defendant and his accomplices are known associates of a south Minneapolis gang known as the "Crazi Boyz." An arrest has been made in last December’s double shooting murder at a Dinkytown smoke shop, and charges allege both the shooter and the deceased parties had rival gang ties. Maleek Jabril Conley, 25, of south Minneapolis was taken into custody late Monday by the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office and is currently being held on $2 million bail. Conley is charged with two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted second-degree murder in the Dec. 3,...

    During an address on Wednesday, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey took a jab at remote work while praising the benefits of downtown Minneapolis. While speaking at the Minneapolis Downtown Council’s annual meeting, Mayor Frey, a Democrat, joked that remote work ultimately turns you into “a loser.” “I don’t know if you saw this study the other day, what this study clearly showed… is that when people who have the ability to come downtown but don’t,” Frey explained. “When they stay home, sitting on their couch with their nasty cat blanket, diddlin’ on their laptop. If they do that for a few...

    An insurance company that covered several businesses destroyed during the George Floyd riots in Minneapolis is suing the city for negligence. “[George] Floyd’s death sparked several days of protests and civil unrest, which resulted in damage to numerous businesses in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, including damage to the insureds’ businesses,” the lawsuit (pdf) states. The Illinois Casualty Company (ICC) paid insurance claims of over $5.6 million in damages “caused by the civil unrest,” according to the lawsuit. The complaint cites an independent report from Hillard Heintze (HH), a safety and security consulting firm. The city contracted with the firm in...

    Administrators at a Minneapolis high school canceled classes Friday after a pair of allegedly “race-fueled” fights Thursday between African-American and Somali students that drew in parents and resulted in the arrests of two adults. CrimeWatchMinneapolis reported that a fight initially broke out between groups of African-American and Somali students at St. Louis Park High School. The school said in a statement that the first incident, which took place during the latter part of the school day, was broken up by teachers and staff. “Unfortunately, the situation escalated further at the end of the school day when adults (not SLP employees),...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Several stores at the location where George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police in 2020 have sued the city, accusing it of neglecting the area and hurting business. The lawsuit, filed in mid-November in state court, also names Mayor Jacob Frey and other officials and accuses the city of not properly policing the area since Floyd’s death. It also accuses the city of blocking the intersection that is now known as George Floyd Square with concrete barriers for more than a year after Floyd's death, keeping customers from entering. The combination has turned the area into a...

    The Minneapolis cop convicted of murdering George Floyd in 2020 has been thoroughly scrubbed of his personhood, let alone his rights. Nobody bothered to tell his family or his lawyer that another inmate had attacked him Saturday. Despite being the most notorious ex-cop in America, he wasn’t protected from violent prisoners. The fact he was even in the ill-run federal prison in Tucson, Ariz., 1,638 miles from his family, speaks volumes. His lawyers argued that he had been denied a fair trial because Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill refused to move to a venue outside Minneapolis despite massive pretrial publicity...

The attack happened at the Federal Correctional Institution, Tucson, a medium-security prison that has been plagued by security lapses and staffing shortages. The person was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the attack and spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity. The Bureau of Prisons confirmed that an incarcerated person was assaulted at FCI Tucson at around 12:30 p.m. local...

    A former Hennepin County, Minnesota, prosecutor is suing her employer, alleging that she was a victim of sex discrimination and retaliation. That’s par for the course. Hennepin County is entirely Democrat, and Democrats don’t always feel obligated to follow their loudly stated rules. The reason Amy Sweasy’s lawsuit matters to us is because George Floyd died in Hennepin County…and depositions in Sweasy’s case make it very clear that the prosecutors always knew that Derek Chauvin and the other three police did not kill George Floyd: During her deposition, Sweasy also discussed a revealing conversation she said she had the day...
