âI think law enforcement agencies across the state are concerned. I think the only question on the ballot delegitimizes to some extent what we do as police officers, âsaid Duluth Chief Mike Tusken.
“If the people who are clamoring for the answer to be yes, they are going to be sorry because it is a very dangerous thing,” said St. Cloud chief Blair Anderson.

WCCO will have more reaction from the law enforcement community throughout the night and after the polls close.
