Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) explained on MSNBC why she did not go after numerous police officers who shot civilians when she served as Hennepin County attorney in Minnesota.
Said Klobuchar: “When I was county attorney, cases we had involving officer-involved shootings went to a grand jury. I think that was wrong now. It would have been much better if I took responsibility and looked at cases and made a decision myself.”
She added: “We did not blow off these cases. We brought them to a grand jury, presented the evidence for a potential criminal prosecution, and the grand jury would come back with the decision.”Save to Favorites
