A crowd of demonstrators gathered Saturday afternoon outside Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll's home in Hugo to call for his resignation.

Protesters and community leaders have accused Kroll of fostering a toxic culture within the Minneapolis Police Department, and calls for his resignation have grown since George Floyd's death in police custody on May 25.

"Here in Hugo, Minnesota, I'm going to take a wild guess and take it you don't have to fear for your life as much as you do in Minneapolis with Bob Kroll and his gang of thugs hunting down black and brown bodies like they're getting paid for it because they are," activist Toussaint Morrison said.

KSTP has reached out to the Police Federation for a response but has not heard back as of Saturday evening.
