Andersen has been both lauded and fired by Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan. He was fired last year after his involvement in a dispute with his ex-girlfriend. An arbitrator later ruled the firing improper and ordered Dolan to reinstate him.

The chief never did. After he spent more months on "home assignment," Andersen was fired again by Dolan in September, this time for allegedly violating the department's policy on "truthfulness" in a statement he gave to the Minneapolis Civilian Police Review Authority regarding the Crystal incident.

David Hanners, thank you for clearing up my question of yesterday regarding Andersen's current employment status with the MPD.- Zen

He is a loose cannon, put him away. Gives police officers every where a bad name. He would fit right in on the New Orleans police force.

I think it is funny that the last poster types like he most likely speaks. I also see that the arogance and racisim is fitting of the poster's name, which is also spelled incorrectly. Its Obama.

This case has nothing to do with whites and minorities. People like you enjoy throwing gas on the flames of racisim. You use racism as a crutch because you are simply an underachiever and won't own up to it. This case has to do with one bad cop and the willingness and duty of the Crystal Police to turn in that bad cop and testify against him.
Bravo Crystal Police.

While I completely agree that there is an abuse of power throughout many branches of law enforcement, isn't there a possibility that there is more to this story? Condemn the action, not the person. This guy may have made a mistake, that doesn't necessarily mean he's a racist, he's still a human being.

I would first like to cite Graham v. Connor, 490 U.S. 386. I am not a police officer, nor would I ever want that horrible job. When it comes to officers using force they are held to the standard of what a reasonable officer would do, not a reasonable citizen. Citizens can sit there and Monday morning QB a situation that they have never been in or never will be. That is why this court case basically states that the average citizen can't decide what is reasonable when it comes to police officers using force. Apparently Crystal PD had a problem that they didn't know how to address properly, that Minneapolis deals with on a daily basis. I'm sorry but if a known gang member doesn't show his hands to a police officer, when he just handed a Crystal cop who bit off more than he can chew his lunch, then even a reasonable citizen should expect that force will be used. Gang members carry "GUNS" in their waistbands. Look at all the shootings that have been on the news lately. These people do carry guns. Hands are what they use to hold the guns and pull the trigger and kill people. With that said, I would conclude that the force used was resaonable and not excessive. The suburbs are dealing with a problem that is new to them. Maybe Crystal should invest more into training officers to deal with the gang problem that is spreading into their community, it is apparent that they don't know how to deal with it at this time or they wouldn't have asked for help.
