Cano said it is a beefed-up department of the police would have been able to prevent or quickly overcome the assaults to be seen in the video.
“It was really about for me, in order to see their videos, and that’s not what I want to give people a feeling of being in Minneapolis or all over,” Cano said. “We probably would have been able to connect with a number of them raided together on a previous moment in time, we had more support and officers to our investigations unit.”
Cano, told Fox News that the city has been investing in the diversification of its power, in order to better represent the community, along with the investment in juvenile crime prevention programs.
