City Council Member and Candidate for Mayor Don Samuels spoke about the conduct of the two off-duty police officers in Green Bay, Wis.

"I want them to resign now," declared Don Samuels. "I want them to understand that they're misfits in the Minneapolis Police department and they should voluntarily spare us the trouble of an investigation," he said.

"The words used by these officers are intolerable, extremely hateful, and show that they cannot honorably serve and protect every resident of Minneapolis, especially those in the LGBT and African-American communities," Samuels said during an early evening news conference.
