Finally, someone who tells it like it is.
Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Minneapolis Police union blasted the Black Lives Matter movement during a press conference on Wednesday, calling the group a “terrorist” organization.
The press event focused on the police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark. Kroll noted that a federal investigation cleared the officers of any wrongdoing. The union leader also had harsh words for Mayor Betsy Hodges, reports local CBS affiliate WCCO:
Lt. Bob Kroll spoke at a press conference Wednesday afternoon, where he blasted Mayor Betsy Hodges and Minneapolis City Council members Alondra Cano, Cam Gordon and Lisa Bender for creating what he called a “dangerous and unproductive atmosphere.”
He also said they were “contributing to the disruption and takeover of the 4th Precinct” in the aftermath of the November shooting.
“They let the process play out, and they were wrong,” Kroll said. “The officers’ actions were justified.”
He called the shooting “unfortunate and tragic,” but put the blame squarely on Clark.
“Jamar Clark dictated the circumstances that night,” he said.
Kroll’s harshest words were pointed at Black Lives Matter, which he described as a “terrorist organization.”
“I don’t see Black Lives Matter as a voice for the black community in Minneapolis,” he said. “The disruption, the, you know, they firebombed the precinct. There were shootings outside the precinct, hundreds of thousands of dollars [of damage] to the precinct and squad cars.”
Kroll said officers Mark Ringgenberg, Dustin Schwarze, and their families, were victims of an “obtrusive” investigation simply for doing “their job.”
“It’s a happy day for them. The truth came out and they prevailed,” Kroll said.
Unfortunately, the officers are now under a third investigation, this time by the Minneapolis Police. The union president had harsh words for that, too:
“What other career do you get investigated three times for the same incident?” Kroll said.
Indeed, not even the criminals murdering people by the dozens each week in Chicago fall under such scrutiny. Welcome to Obama’s America.
