The Minnesota state legislature passed sweeping police reforms Tuesday two months after George Floyd was murdered at the hands of Minneapolis police.  The package passed the house via a 102-29 vote just before midnight Monday while the Senate followed shortly after with a 60-7 vote.  The legislation will now make its way to Governor Tim Walz desk where he is expected to sign it into law.  The legislation includes new police accountability measures, bans neck restraints as a means to subdue a suspect and outlaws officers from taking part in quote “warrior style” training which teaches officers to view all encounters with suspects as inherently dangerous.
