Communities United Against Police Brutality of Minneapolis is presently engaged in a proactive solution to stop police brutality. Minneapolis, similar to many municipalities around the country, is self insured for police brutality and misconduct claims. The bottom line of this arrangement results in taxpayers shouldering the financial bill for the acts of misconduct and brutality of rogue officers. Additionally, the cost is compounded because taxpayers are forced to continue paying the salaries of these criminal cops.

According to published reports, Brooklyn Park police officer Greg Burstad unlawfully entered the Ramirez’s home in Crystal Minnesota. The entry was made without a warrant and a search was conducted resulting in the apartment being ransacked. This search without a warrant apparently did not produce any contraband, and no family member was charged. Shockingly, the locks were changed and the Ramirez family was told they could not enter. Days later when the family was allowed back into their apartment, their belongings were being moved out. The City of Crystal claims to be investigating the incident. However, we have not received any information confirming that an investigator had interviewed the Ramirez family.
