And of course, the cop was well enough to be released from the hospital.

This sounds similar to what started happening in Ferguson.


Absolutely thinking the same thing. Tough to see how this could have been a set-up, but given the history, it is really tough to dismiss the possibility. Wish that were just conspiracy nonsense, but seriously…


Several years ago a Minneapolis cop was driving in a neighborhood that is laid out in a grid with lots of stop signs. It was late at night, he was driving well over the speed limit and had no lights showing (no headlights, no light bar, nothing). He ran a stop sign and t-boned a car that had the right of way and killed the driver. No charges were filed, because cop. So maybe this guy had his lights on before he killed an innocent. Baby steps…


Even if not directly a set-up, there is a sense of negligence and lack of care/consideration when in certain parts of town (on the part of the police) that surely leads to worse outcomes.

Bit of a convoluted relationship in that headline

There is a reason why special measures are sometimes taken around people who testify against organized crime.


Frazier’s family says they want the officer of that squad car fired. The officer behind the wheel was Brian Cummings, who is now on administrative paid leave.

The family is not only demanding that Cummings be fired immediately, they also want Attorney General Keith Ellison to take over the case.

“There are people who want to be dismissive because there wasn’t a knee to the neck or there wasn’t a gunshot wound, yet what we see in this case is someone minding their own business and not even be able to make it safely to their destination because of the reckless conduct of the Minneapolis Police department,” said Civil Rights Attorney Nekima Levy Armstrong.

Attorneys Ben Crump and Jeff Storms will represent Frazier’s family in a lawsuit against the MPD. Crump also represented the family of George Floyd.
