Critics accused the training program of fostering a positive police culture that dates back decades.
Minneapolis retired deputy head Greg Hestness wanted to know how much Ryan and Kuhn’s trainers might have had a blow to the rookies. He said that they were caught by Floyd (Floyd). ) How quickly the arrest was because his forged 20-dollar bill was upgraded to Ryan, yelling at Floyd, “Show me your [expletive] hand! “
“Does that start on the fourth day?”
“A very cynical but worth mentioning question is, if Qiao Wen did not train officers, would he kneel down for so long?” said Michael FriedmanThe former executive director of the Legal Rights Center said that Qiao Wen appeared to be “trying to prove how to control a person.”
Gerald MooreA veteran of the Minneapolis Police Department who has retired for more than 30 years said that because rookies must pass regular assessments before they can go out on their own, trainers may have unhealthy motivation.
In some people’s eyes, the bigger problem is that when colleagues (especially senior officials) use excessive force, some military officers tend not to question and intervene.
After Floyd’s death, the Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo Announced a stricter “Intervention Obligation” policy, which stipulates that those who witness another person “use any prohibited force, inappropriate or unreasonable force” must try to “intervene safely through verbal and physical means” .
For years, groups such as the Coalition Against Police Brutality have been urging the department to adopt the New Orleans Police Department’s Peer Intervention Training Program, which is based on the premise that police officers may not intervene in misconduct when meeting colleagues.
The program is called “Ethical and Brave Ethical Policing” (EPIC), and its premise is that interventions must be taught through training and role-playing, and interventions must be continuously strengthened through more training to instill a departmental culture.
The St. Paul police participated in the training, but Minneapolis did not. In recent years, after a series of high-profile killings of civilians on the job, debates about police training have been brewing in Minneapolis.
