Hodges, Ellison call for an end to 4th Precinct occupation


Mayor Betsy Hodges, Congressman Keith Ellison, City Council President Barb Johnson and many other North Side community leaders are calling on protesters to end their occupation of the 4th Precinct police station.

Protesters have been camped out at the police station for two weeks as a sign of support for Jamar Clark who was fatally shot by police near the precinct on Nov. 15.

Community leaders say the barricade of Plymouth Avenue has posed safety challenges and inconvenienced many people in the neighborhood.
