Woman Rolls Up On Cop Who Was Released On Bail After George Floyd’s Killing + NYPD Claims No Crime Was Committed After Officers Drove SUVs Into Protesters

​ ​ ​ ​

A woman spotted one of the police officers who were brought up on charges for the killing of George Floyd. And she went IN. Deets on her interaction, plus find out how the NYPD is backing their officers who drove their SUVs into protesters inside…

A woman recognized a man in the grocery store to be one of the cops who were involved in the killing of George Floyd – the black Minneapolis man who was killed after a white police officer kneeled into the back of his neck for nearly 9 minutes. At one point while George was being detained, there were three officers who kneeled their body weight onto him.

A video of a woman confronting one of the ex-Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd has gone viral. The woman rolled up on 26-year-old J. Alexander Kueng, who was one of the four officers fired from the Minneapolis Police Department and criminally charged after Floyd's death, after she recognized him in the gorcery store. He's one of three officers charged with aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter for their roles in helping pin George down before he died on Memorial Day.

Turns out, J. Alexander was on his third day on the job on May 25th when his fellow police officer, Derek Chauvin, pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for almost 9-minutes, killing him. J. Alexander Kueng was released from the Hennepin County Jail shortly before 7:30 p.m. Friday (June 19th) after posting bail that was set at $750,000, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

After his release, he went to a grocery store and a woman recognized him. Soon as she did, she turned her camera on to record her encounter.

"Oh. Yeah, that's me," J. Alexander responded to the woman who recognized him in the grocery store.

Once he confirmed his identity the woman was very vocal about J. Alexander being "out of prison, comfortably shopping in Cub Foods, as if you didn't do anything," Kueng responded, "I wouldn't call it 'comfortably.' I would just say getting necessities — or helping."

"I don't think you should have that right. I don't think you should even be out on bail," the woman said.

"I can understand that," Kueng responded. "I'm sorry you feel that way."

Sis wasn't having it. Check it:

 

 

The person who originally posted the video has since changed the settings on his account to be private.J. Alexander was released after he coughed up the cash on a $750,000 bail. Former officer Tou Thao, is still being held in jail on $750,000 bail. Derek Chauvin is also still jailed, facing second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter with his bail set at $1.25 million.

And get this....

According to reports, several officers filed complaints with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, saying that the superintendent of the Ramsey County jail in St. Paul kept them from bringing Derek Chauvin to his cell. In fact, the black officers weren't allowed to be on the same floor as him — last month, solely because of their race, according to them. The NY Times reports:

The officers, half of whom are black and all of whom are people of color, said the orders from the superintendent, Steve Lydon, who is white, amounted to segregation and indicated that he thought they could not be trusted to do their jobs because they are not white.

After initially denying that officers’ contact with Mr. Chauvin had been determined by race, a spokesman for the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office acknowledged the move this weekend and said Mr. Lydon had been temporarily removed from the superintendent role as the sheriff investigates the officers’ claims.

Roy Magnuson, the spokesman, provided a statement that he said Mr. Lydon gave to investigators. In it, Mr. Lydon said he had decided to keep nonwhite employees away from Mr. Chauvin because he believed having people of color interact with him could have “heightened ongoing trauma.” He said he had only done so on short notice and for 45 minutes before realizing that he had made a mistake, after which he reversed the order and apologized. Officers said it had lasted longer — affecting one shift two days later — and that not enough had been done in response.

Womp.

The NYPD said two officers didn't do anything wrong when they ran over protesters. NYPD officers in two marked SUVs plowied through a crowd of protesters who were blocking their path. Peep the video above and below:

 

 

The NYPD said the officers did nothing wrong. Yahoo! reports:

NYPD commissioner Dermot Shea would like to assure everyone that the officers didn't violate any department policies when they accelerated into people. On Monday, Shea appeared before New York attorney general Letitia James in an online public hearing in an ongoing investigation into NYPD's responses to the anti-police brutality protests, and Shea unequivocally defended the officers' actions.

When James asked about the incident, "Was that in violation of your use of force policy?" Shea replied simply, "No." He continued, "Our internal affairs bureau investigated this information and preliminarily we have an accounting of that incident where we have officers in a situation where they’re essentially being penned in by protesters."

So, James asked, would Shea consider it "an appropriate use of force?"

Shea replied, "I’m not saying that the police car was used as a use of force. The officers were set upon and attacked, and thankfully they were able to get out of that situation with, to my knowledge, no injuries to anyone."

Backing the vehicles up apparently was impossible in Shea's telling of events, but equally troubling is the technical jargon he's relying on to minimize the severity and brutality of the officers under him: hitting people with a car is only a "use of force" if the NYPD fails to find a way to justify it after the fact.

Do you think the officers in the videos above are wrong, regardless of the alleged "law" that wasn't broken?
