The Minnesota Department of Public Safety issued a press release today announcing the suspension of a drug recognition program conducted by the Minnesota State Patrol. The program was exposed earlier this month by activists and members of Communities United Against Police Brutality in Minneapolis.
Prior to the press release, Eric Roeske, a State Patrol public information officer, said, "there's been no evidence or no information that has been presented to us that would substantiate any of the allegations," City Pages reports today.
"Our investigation points to particular efforts to target and recruit youth," ostensibly for a program designed to train police in detecting drivers under the influence of drugs, Infowars.com reported on May, 2012.
