Protests pushed into the Twin Cities suburbs this summer — and now the suburbs are pushing back.
Several cities are adopting or considering rules preventing protests at the homes of their residents. The proposed rules are a response to an August protest at the Hugo home of a Minneapolis police union official.
Hugo enacted a ban on protests that target residences, and Lino Lakes on Monday began a process to adopt a similar ban. In Lake Elmo, the city’s Public Safety Committee heard a presentation Monday about ban.
