Over the weekend St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Police Chief Todd Axtell held a press conference about the protest on I-94 where over 100 people were arrested and 21 officers were injured. The protest was sparked by the shooting death last week of Philando Castile.

Mayor Coleman and chief Axtell joined MPR News Host Kerri Miller today to take listener calls about the protests from last weekend and how they're preparing for the future demonstrations.
