Chief Medaria Arradondo, who leads the Minneapolis police department and is the officer responsible for the death of George Floyd, once sued the city and the department, alleging racial discrimination.




As the city's first black police chief, Arradondo has attempted to introduce meaningful reform and lessen excessive force — but he's met with resistance from the rank-and-file police union and its bombastic leader, Bob Kroll.




Criminal justice experts say police unions impede meaningful reform in Minneapolis and other city police departments.

United States District Court, District of Minnesota, Fourth Division
In 2007, a group of five black police officers, each with more than a dozen years on the job, sued Minneapolis' police department for racial discrimination.
Officer Medaria Arradondo and his colleagues stated in the suit that they had faced retaliation since joining the department, like in 1992, when they received a letter from interoffice mail signed with "KKK."
