Police task force
addresses brutality

Citizens identify
policy issues around
police violence

By RACHEL CUNNINGHAM

Summer Daily News Editor

The city of Ann Arbor held a
Police Task Force meeting Thursday
evening to discuss and suggest revisions
of the policy regarding the Ann Arbor
Police Review Board.
City Council had finalized the creation
of a task force in March to create higher
accountability for the Ann Arbor Police
Department. Area residents had called on
the city to create the task force after police
brutality incidents occurred in the city,
including the 2014 shooting death of Aura
Rosser and the arrest of Ciaeem Slaton at
the Blake Transit Center in September.
Richard Friedman, co-chair of the
Police Task Force, explained Thursday’s
meeting specifically hoped to address
the review board’s role in incident
review, especially with the recent Blind
Oig restaurant incident. The previous
weekend, a Black man was arrested after
a fight intiated by a white man broke out.

The Black man was the only indivdual
arrested during the incident.
“As a task force, we don’t have any role
to investigate this,” Friedman said. “But,
this is the type of incident for which the
commission we’re working on is designed
to address, I think. We hope that it will
have a good review process to address
incidents like that.”
Transforming Justice Washtenaw and
the Collective Against White Supremacy
both submitted revision requests for the
commission’s establishment.
TJW members Maren Spolem and
Julie Quiroz addressed TJW support
of the commission but raised concerns
regarding what the commission sees the
core issue to be.
“TJW is committed to the creation
of
a
police
commission
that
is
independent,
transparent,
representative
and
adequately
funded,” Spolem said. “We’ve
reviewed your template and while
there are many points in the
template with which we agree,
fundamental differences remain.

Candidate discusses
his campaign for
state governor

Editor’s
Note:
The
Michigan
Daily does not officially endorse
Patrick Colbeck for governor. The
Daily continues to reach out to
other gubernatorial candidates for
comments and interviews.
The Daily recently met with
Michigan
gubernatorial
candidate
Patrick Colbeck to discuss his platform
and goals if elected. Colbeck is running
against Attorney General Bill Schuette,
Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and Jim Hines for
the Republican candidacy. The primary
election is set to take place Aug. 7.
Colbeck says he is the only
Republican candidate who can beat
the Democrats in the general election,
emphasizing his grassroot support.
“I can win the general election,”
Colbeck said. “There’s not going to be too
much enthusiasm to go get out the vote
in the general election and, frankly, the
Michigan Democratic Party chair talks
about me being the biggest threat to the
Democrats in the general election.”
Colbeck says despite the media
attention
focused
on
opponents
Schuette and Calley, he is willing to go
beyond merely performing one-minute
sound bites to provide detailed strategies

and implement solutions.
“I’m an engineer so I actually solve
problems,” Colbeck said. “Everybody
else, they’re much better speakers. I
had my one technical speaking course
at Michigan but that was about it. The
key is people are looking for someone
who can solve problems and whatever
the policy issue across the board is, I’ve
demonstrated that I can go into the
details on any of the different policy
issues that we’re facing at the state
level and I can find solutions to those
problems.”
“Mixing things up”
Colbeck says voters are ready for
something new, because they are tired
of “politics as usual.” Colbeck believes
he can bring authenticity to his role and
implement real solutions to problems in
Michigan such as poor education, bad
roads and high taxes.
“When you talk about fixing the
roads, I don’t frame the problem for
58 seconds out of a one-minute reply
and then have a two second response
on how to fix it. I actually spend all my
time, probably talking too fast trying to
squeeze it into a minute, and say, ‘Here’s
the solution,’” Colbeck said. “I’ve gotten
people that have declared Independent
or Democrat that come up and want to
support my campaign because they’re
tired of people with the marketing
blitz and not any substance. So, the big
differentiator and the way I set up is that
I’ve got substance in my narrative and in
my solutions.”
