            *A profession changed overnight*

Belcourt was a member of what was called the Community Response Team. She worked 
drugs and weapons cases in downtown Minneapolis for years.

“It was very proactive police work,” Belcourt said.

She said her profession and life basically changed overnight.

The morning after Floyd’s death at 38th and Chicago, her team mobilized to 
respond to nearly every rescue mission related to the riots.

“All I knew is there was going to be a lot of anger, emotion, a lot of hurt tied 
to this video and to what happened. I also knew it was probably going to be bad 
for us,” she said.

“You could see the crowds coming in and they were angry, they were mad. You 
could see the emotion of the people and that was just on camera,” she added, 
recalling what she saw on the city cameras that day.

“You know, especially as an experienced officer, that that’s going to be times 
1,000 in person,” Belcourt said.

In one incident, an Australian TV crew captured the crowds as Belcourt’s team 
tried to get to two people who’d been stabbed.

“Just to remind our viewers this is not Lebanon or the heart of Iraq. This is 
America and it’s war on the streets,” the reporter said in that broadcast.

“We needed to get these two stabbing victims out, but the fire department and 
the ambulance couldn’t get in,” Belcourt recalled.

Police had to pull a bleeding victim on a cart through the protesters to get him 
to a hospital that day.

“That is as close to a civil war in America that you will see,” the reporter said.
