Safe ways to bike anywhere in Minneapolis

Provide more protected bikeways--routes that separate bikes from cars with some physical barriers--planters, a curb, plastic sticks--anything. This will get more people biking and reduce car-bike conflicts.

Property Crimes actually solved by MPD

Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) only clears a fraction of the robberies, home burglaries and other so-called 'non-violent' crimes. And when you have one of these happen to you, MPD responds with almost assembly-line effeciency of getting you a form to fill out of what you were missing so you can report it to your insurance.

Currently in Minnesota, possession of less than 1.5 ounces (42.5g) of cannabis is a petty misdemeanor. While this is certainly preferable to a felony, the fact is that a petty misdemeanor is still a criminal offense with the potential to wreak long-term harm. Repercussions include having the citation show up on some background checks, being banned from taking out federal student loans for a year [1], and not being allowed... more »

Possessing Small Amounts of Hash Oil Should Not Be a Felony

In Minnesota, possession of any amount of hash oil is a felony. It's time we change this, so that having small amounts of concentrates (7g or less) in Minneapolis becomes a civil fine or petty misdemeanor charge – as it is to possess cannabis in its natural form.

Crosswalk Enforcement Prioritized.

Direct Minneapolis Police to enforce the State of MN pedestrian laws, focusing on the crosswalk law. This is seldom observed or enforced. To make major change all we need to do in enforce laws already on the books.
