Minneapolis citizens' group calls for emergency plan to address growing public safety concerns

A Facebook group called Operation Safety Now has nearly 250 members since its launch last Friday and its administrator, Bill Rodriguez, told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the group has a three-part plan to address a growing concern about public safety.

“Altogether talking about making a 60-day emergency plan that addresses the issues at hand,” Rodriguez said. "At a time when the city needs to be trotting out cannons, they're responding with fly swatters. And we need to get a sense of what the longer-term plan is because we don't think there is a plan."

Rodriguez said the plan would have city, county and state leaders convene and implement the proposed 60-day emergency plan which includes the possibility of hiring part-time officers to fill a void being created by dozens of officers leaving the Minneapolis Police Department.

"Every solution we have out there, may not be the perfect one, but we're just citizens. All we're trying to do is start a conversation,” said Rodriguez.

Monday, seven individuals who are experiencing homelessness who were evicted from city parks have filed a class action lawsuit in federal court against Hennepin County, Minneapolis, the heads of local law enforcement and the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation board.

According to a news release from the Minnesota ACLU and Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid, the lawsuit argues the city and county violated the constitutional rights of the seven plaintiffs and others in the park by destroying the encampments.

Cold, COVID-19 complicate situation for people without shelter

The lawsuit calls for the court to halt sweeps and evictions of encampments until “adequate shelter” is found.

“Homelessness is a crisis across the country, even in our prosperous city of Minneapolis, and simply removing people from public view is not the solution,” Justin Perl, litigation director of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid, said in a statement “The city and county's bulldozer approach is not only cruel, it is shortsighted, counterproductive, and a waste of taxpayers' dollars. We need a real plan to help these Minnesotans who have nowhere else to go.”

KSTP reached out to Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey's office and the city for comment on Monday. As of Tuesday, no comment has been made.

Kollege Klub and Sally's Saloon report highest COVID-19 case numbers in Minneapolis

Though COVID-19 precautions are in place, the restaurants continued to report cases in September as University students returned.

Two University of Minnesota-area restaurants have been among the top hotspots for COVID-19 throughout the state.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has reported 103 restaurants that have been investigated for suspected patron transmission of COVID-19 statewide since restaurants were allowed to reopen in June. Fifty-five met the outbreak threshold, according to information released to the public on Oct. 9.

Minneapolis has 14 establishments that meet this criteria, including Kollege Klub and Sally's Saloon at the top of the list.

The Kollege Klub in Dinkytown had a total of 90 cases this summer, with 21 cases reported in September alone. Sally's in Stadium Village trails closely behind with 83 total reported cases, 34 of which were also reported in September.

Both Sally's and Kollege Klub declined to comment regarding their response to the pandemic.

MDH notes that because locations rely on self-reporting and some people may be reluctant to share information about their attendance at social events, some outbreaks could be underreported.

Hayden Cecil, a student who went to Sally's this semester, said she felt safe while in the restaurant because of its COVID-19 precautions but was unsettled by the behavior of other patrons.

"I wear my mask when I walk around," Cecil said. "But it's like, sometimes when I see other people walking around without a mask, it just gives me an uneasy feeling."

She added that social distancing is difficult when patrons are walking between tables, sometimes unmasked, or standing in line waiting to be admitted to Sally's.
