"Your police force has terrorized the city enough". A few dozen protesters entered the room and demanded her resignation, chanting "Bye-bye Betsy as they waved signs that said "Messy Betsy" and "You are next".
Harteau was criticized by some City Council members Friday afternoon for the length of time it took her to respond to the incident. "You don't want to hear us, so hear me now - we do not want you as the Mayor of Minneapolis and we ask you to resign!" he said. Protesters shouted down Hodges at a press conference Friday night in which she announced she meant to nominate Assistant Police Chief Medaria Arradondo to take over as head of the department, and demanded that she resign.
Minneapolis Police chief Janee Harteau had faced criticism over her handling of the killing of Justine Damond last Saturday night, which ignited an worldwide outcry.
The state is investigating the shooting. Harteau said she had been backpacking in the mountains, the remoteness of which made her immediate return hard after the shooting.
On March 30, 2016, authorities announced that the Minneapolis officers who shot Clark would not face criminal charges because they believed the 24-year-old black man was trying to grab one of their guns during a struggle in front of an apartment building on November 15, 2015.
Ms Hodges said Assistant Chief Medaria Arradondo would become police chief.
The Minneapolis police department was involved in the controversial police shooting of a black man in 2015. Arradondo has been the public face of the department during the crisis.
Harteau has spent her career with the department, starting as a beat cop in 1987 when she was 22. The victim, Justine Damond, 40, was a cheery blonde meditation instructor who was engaged to be married next month. After about 15 minutes of different people speaking, the group left City Hall. A U.S. Department of Justice review faulted poor communications between the mayor and chief.

Rajasthan legislators vote in Presidential poll
Meanwhile, the Election Commission of India (ECI) has notified election to the post of Vice-President on August 5. The ballot papers and boxes have also arrived and have been kept in the strong room.
Chief Harteau answers media questions.
Chief Harteau said the cameras worn by Officers Noor and Matthew Harrity "should have been activated".
The president of the Minneapolis Police Officers Union also weighed in, telling Fox 9 that the chief's resignation was political, but he wasn't too sad to see her go.
She said Noor has not talked to the BCA, nor has he talked with the department's internal affairs unit.
"Inside the department, outside the department, fans, critics, everybody - he builds relationships with people, which is going to be crucial as the department moves forward", Hodges told The Associated Press Saturday. The partners endured years of harassment from some male colleagues, and it escalated to the point where they felt endangered because they weren't getting help when they would call for backup.
Bennett also strongly disputed the assumption that the officers might reasonably have feared an ambush, saying it's "ludicrous" and "disinformation".
This was a three-year contract, starting from the beginning of the term on January 2, 2013.
Fallout intensified on Friday from the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman, as Minneapolis's police chief resigned, an angry crowd shouted down the mayor, and protesters filled streets for the second day in a row. Harteau said that the ban was "divisive" and that it "hurt" LGBTQ police officers.
