This is nonsence to worry about this trip to Hawaii. Who, among us, would want to do their jobs. We bend over backwards to find any little reason to help the criminals stay out of jail. This is so hypocritical to go after the Police Gang Force when we have enough corruption going on with our legislative leaders and appointees. Let's quit babying the criminals and worry more about the victims.

he was front and center on the Hawaiian trip as well. At his level he should have a clear understanding of the law concerning their communications, not to mention overall judgment.

shut the police force down. Obviously we can trust the gangs more then the police.

the strike force went to the Hawaii convention with money they got from arrests. Sounds like they earned their trip fair and square to me !

Don't take shots at the task force, you might end up with someone elses gun lying next to you.

They used money from drug busts. It's not like they were going to be using taxpayer money to go to Hawaii. Plus if the convention is being held here next year, what's the big problem with them checking out this year's convention even if it's in Hawaii?

when you take down drug dealers you can keep the money, how about that? fact is police need stress relief so if this is how they wanted to spend money that they recouped from drug dealing scum that try to kill them then kudos! it's that or they can take a sledgehammer to the skulls of the drug dealers. it's kinda like polo lol

But don't say things like they earned the money. It's not they're money from the busts, it's their job.

for the gang force to defeat and stiffle gangs more power to them. I say let's have a Mn. Lottery scratch off game as a fund raiser for the Strike Force. Let's raise a couple million for them. This Mpls. resident is always in your corner. Nuff said.

is not their money. It's taxpayer money. These dudes should NOT be partying in Hawaii at our expense.
