NSRH19: Hutch for Sheriff Update, Duluth Riot Gear, Mpls Regulating Police Surveillance & more!

 

This edition of North Star Radio Hour starts off with an update from Dave Hutchinson who is running for Hennepin County Sheriff. We spoke with him previously on NSRH14. Following that, the show covers a plethora of national news, including the dilemma many voters of color are facing in Georgia and claims of disenfranchisement. Then, back here in Minnesota, we discuss the Duluth Police Department’s desire to acquire riot gear. In the Twin Cities, Sam shares some good news about the Minneapolis City Council and how they’re starting to consider regulations over police surveillance and military gear. Due to that good news, we flashback to an interview with Chad Marlow of the ACLU about their model legislation aimed at regulating those police actions and procurement efforts.
