BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. -- A police patrol sergeant is back on the job in this northern Twin Cities suburb, after being suspended without pay for five days.
That was the discipline the Brooklyn Park Police Department imposed on Sgt. Greg Burstad after a lengthy investigation into complaints stemming from his work on the now defunct Metro Gang Strike Force.
A victims advocacy group has asserted that Burstad's punishment did not match the seriousness of the complaints lodged against him.
