“The Republican Party of Minnesota commends the MPPOA for standing up to Democrat Governor Walz and his blatant disregard for the justice system.
“The state is prosecuting the officers involved in the George Floyd case and it is entirely inappropriate for the state’s chief executive to publicly give his personal opinion on the proceedings. He has put his thumb on the scales of justice to the detriment of everybody who expects fairness from their government.
“Governor Walz has allowed politics and his personal opinion to cloud his judgment as governor and in the process has risked the safety of law enforcement personnel and the members of the public.”
