Sheriff says Brooklyn Center mayor’s comments have caused ‘significant confusion’

Following the press conference, Hennepin County Sheriff Dave Hutchinson asked Elliott to clarify if “Brooklyn Center continues to request mutual aid from state and other law enforcement agencies.”

“Yesterday, Brooklyn Center made a request through the Hennepin County Chiefs of Police Association for the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office to take a lead role in incident command, and the joint law enforcement response was able to continue under a unified command structure with the leadership of the Sheriff’s Office and many other agencies,” Hutchinson said in an email to Elliott obtained by Fluence Media.

“And yet today, at a press conference, you expressed concern about last night’s joint operations and the role of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office,” Hutchinson added.

He then said the city’s actions “since Sunday evening have created significant confusion.”

To the story about the Mighty MO. A battleship’s 16 inch guns used black powder packed in silk bags as a propellant. Firing the main guns was quite a process. Take a look at the deflection of the water from the muzzle blast. This particular photo is of the USS Iowa, BB-61. I just wonder, since they use black powder, can I have one in my back yard? The neighbors would hate me on the 4th.
