ST. PAUL — Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz on Monday, April 19, declared a peacetime emergency for the seven-county metro area and announced that the state would tap police resources from other states …

Gov. Tim Walz said and State Patrol Colonel Matt Langer said the state was preparing to bring in roughly 120 law enforcement officers from Nebraska and Ohio in an effort to stave off civil unrest in the Twin Cities. The first-term governor said the move was aimed at preventing rioting and looting like that which followed the 2020 death of George Floyd.

“There are bricks and bottles and all forms of things that are being directed at the police,” Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, said. “And we must recognize the difference, that this is a public safety issue and the police have an obligation to protect the people of those communities from these criminal acts.”

Protesters and journalists at the protests have also reported that law enforcement officers have used excessive force in efforts to vacate the area outside the Brooklyn Center police station.

Democrats on the Senate floor raised concerns about the state spending more money on law enforcement when the issues that spurred protest and unrest involved deaths at the hands of police. And they said bringing in additional law enforcement groups could further traumatize communities still processing the deaths of Wright, Floyd and others. They also renewed calls for the Senate to take up police accountability legislation.
