Star Sentinel: While its police force may be on the smallish side, Anoka is arguably one of the most guarded places around.That’s because the suburb about 40 minutes north of the Twin Cities is home to 27 Minneapolis police officers, nearly outnumbering the town’s 29-member department.
The RACIST LITTLE WHITE MAN is making this all about HIM for all the wrong reasons. THIS is his statement about the race war HIS leadership has sparked & fueled.
We need leadership that talks about White Privivlege as a DISEASE not a VIRTUE!

Another 29 Minneapolis cops reside in nearby Andover, which doesn’t have its own police department.

Of the department’s 873 sworn officers, only about 8 percent — or 72 officers — live in ZIP codes that cover most of Minneapolis, according to a Star Tribune analysis of city records. Not that times have changed all that much: in 1989, about 70 percent of the police force lived elsewhere.
