As I understand it, the Saint Paul Police are getting an increasingly bad reputation for bad behavior and brutality. A while ago I posted this in relation to the Saint Paul 8. The video below is of an incident that happened on Tuesday. The video is violent and disturbing, and is probably evidence enough to have at least one police officer lose his job.
The chief of police and the mayor should be held accountable. The Star Tribune has more.
The “police officer’s” name (and I use that term lightly) is Officer Jesse Zilge.
Zilge was involved in an incident in 2006, described here.
