From the WCCO story:
An expert in police accountability, Moran has been researching and studying the Newark Police Department for years. It's the city where O'Hara became a police officer in 2001. She said the prospective chief is a "fascinating" choice for the chief of Minneapolis.
She says, like Minneapolis, Newark's department was known for discrimination in traffic stops and using excessive force.
From KARE 11:
"It's really remarkable to have two police departments in somewhat similar cities right next to each other handling the process so differently."
