Terrance Franklin Killing: BCA Considers Opening Investigation Into Deadly 2013 Minneapolis Police Shooting​

"MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is considering opening an investigation into a fatal 2013 Minneapolis police shooting.
The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office says the office has reviewed new evidence in the death of Terrance Franklin since taking the case to a grand jury.
“We sent a letter in early May to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension suggesting they should consider doing a new investigation. The BCA was not the original investigating agency so they would be taking an outside, independent look,” HCAO officials said in a statement Saturday.
Franklin, 22, was shot and killed during a confrontation with police inside a home in Uptown. At the time, Minneapolis police said he fled, broke into a home, hid in a basement during an altercation and grabbed an officer’s weapon, striking two.
Walt Franklin welcomes a new investigation into his son’s death, saying he didn’t deserve to die for his actions.
“It will be a blessing if we can reopen this thing,” Walt said. “I’ve been praying and banking on this to happen. I’ve been asking for something to come up like this to bring it out.”
Walt believes the increased scrutiny on the Minneapolis Police Department following the murder of George Floyd, and those that investigate the MPD, helped lead to this moment.
“I thank God that it took George Floyd to bring this to an opening for everyone to see, open our eyes to see that we have to reinvestigate all these cases that the Minneapolis police have brought upon themselves,” Walt said.
MPD originally investigated its own officer-involved shooting and found no wrongdoing. The then-police chief pushed to have the BCA investigate future cases where officers use force. That happened in 2014."

Wonder if they're going to go all the way back to the 1858* looking for stuff to :stirpot :eek :mad

*Everyone* says they want to move forward and make positive changes, but now, this dredging up of an incident from 8 years ago [sigh]

Please pray for peace, and for officers everywhere, past and present

:pray :pray :amen :amen

* Minnesota was admitted to the Union in 1858

It's real simple people, just follow the instructions of the police and you will be treated well.

It appears from the videos, in every case I've seen, when a black person has been killed by an officer, the suspect was trying harm the police. It's like there is an unwritten rule for young black men that they must resist arrest and fight with officers. These young men have been influenced by others that resisting arrest is some type of "required action for acceptance by their peers". This will always result in the suspect eventually sustaining some type of bodily harm including death. They are being set up to fail by their own culture. Of course when this is pointed out the race card is immediately played.
