Crime is out of control at the University of Minnesota and parents are tired of the finger-pointing. They turned out in force for a community meeting Tuesday night at the Van Cleve Recreation Center but were disappointed with the outcome.

The meeting was attended by Tina Erazmus, the university’s director of government and community relations, and Nick Juarez, a member of the campus police department’s community engagement team. President Joan Gabel did not attend, nor did anyone from the Minneapolis Police Department.

“I didn’t hear a whole lot of questions answered. I heard a whole lot of talking and a whole lot of just trying to kill time. I didn’t hear a whole lot of the parents’ questions answered, unfortunately,” parent Mike Olson told Alpha News. “[It was a lot of] pointing of fingers … we’re supposed to talk to the mayor, we’re supposed to talk to the university president, we’re supposed to talk to the council woman, but yet nobody wants to do anything about it, it sounds like. They say they do but yet they’re not.”

Olson said the “demonizing of police” is a big part of the problem and “it needs to stop.”
