Minneapolis police chief resigns

Justine Damond Murder Minneapolis Police Chief Calls Her Death 'Unnecessary'

Crime 3

Mayor Betsy Hodges said in a written statement that she and Ms Harteau agreed on Friday that Ms Harteau would step aside.

But she said the shooting of Ms Damond by one of her officers caused me to engage in deep reflection. She was hired as an officer in 1987, and promoted to Chief in 2012.

Minneapolis residents and demonstrators attended the news conference, and one man began shouting down Mayor Betsy Hodges, yelling, "We do not want you as mayor", to applause from those gathered. But it's been going on for a while, and I think she tried to say help.

"We are in constant contact with the Australian government and representatives of the USA government and Minnesota state authorities", the family said in a statement Thursday.

"Bye-bye, Betsy", the crowd chanted.

That's when the protesters took over the room and held their own press conference.

Hodges nominated assistant chief Medaria Arradondo to be the next chief. She was set to be married next month.

Police-community relations in Minnesota have been heightened for some time over last summer's police shooting death of Philando Castile, who was a passenger in a vehicle stopped for a traffic violation; Castile told the police officer that he was legally permitted to carry a firearm, but a jury acquitted the officer in Castile's death. Both of them are on standard administrative leave.

Neither body cameras nor a squad camera are believed to have captured the incident.

Damond's case is the latest high-profile police shooting in the United States, with most others involving victims who were African-American.

Harteu was on vacation at the time of the shooting, and did not adress to controversy until five days after Justine Damond's death.

Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation, applauded Harteau's resignation and the appointment of Arrando, and said Hodges should step down, too. "Your press conference is ineffective". The mayor had to postpone a news conference at City Hall on Friday as protesters disrupted the event. "This is just a cosmetic change, and we want institutional change". "This has had a negative impact on the community trust we have built", she said.

Ms Harteau, a 30-year veteran of the department, was the first woman to lead it, and is Native American and openly gay.
