No charges against Minneapolis cops in Green Bay racial slurs

MINNEAPOLIS -

Two Minneapolis police officers accused of using racial slurs, disparaging their police chief and criticizing the Green Bay Police Department after a scuffle with a group of black men in Wisconsin will not be charged.

The white officers, who were off-duty at the time, allegedly fought with a group of black men outside a bar June 29 in Green Bay, Wis. The black men left the area and were not named in the Green Bay police report.

Green Bay Assistant City Attorney Kail Decker says not knowing the men's identities makes it difficult to file charges.

Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak and Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau both expressed outrage over the officers' behavior, and both remain on paid administrative leave as the internal affairs investigation continues.
