Police Brutality and City Hall

On November 25th, 2014 Jeffrey Patrick Rice of St Paul, Minnesota plowed his car into a protest against police killings in Minneapolis. After knocking over a group of protesters and trapping a 16 year old girl under his car, he sped away, putting others at risk. The Minneapolis police talked to him after the incident and let him go without even a ticket. Their initial report called Mr Rice the "victim" and the young girl that had been trapped under his car and others injured by him as "others." The Minneapolis Star Tribune initially reported the police version of Mr Rice being the "victim" who was "fleeing the mob." They also interviewed the mother of Mr Rice. They initially did not interview the parents of the young 16 year old trapped under the car of Mr Jeffrey Rice.
