Cop Resigns After Instructing Motorists to Run Over #BLM Activists

A Minnesota police sergeant who told drivers to run over Black Lives Matter protesters in a Facebook comment has resigned. Last month, Jeffrey Rothecker (JM Roth) commented on a news story about protesters blocking traffic on MLK Day.

“Run them over.Keep traffic flowing and don’t slow down for any of these idiots who try and block the street. Here is the deal, you continue to drive and if you hit someone make sure you call 911 to report the accident and meet the cops a block or two away and you can justify stopping further away because you feared for your safety since the past people in this group has shown a propensity towards violence. Since they are trying to block the street and/or cross where there is no crossing you should not be charged with anything. Now, these idiots could try and sue you in civil court, but remember that it will be jury trial and so most likely it will come out in your favor.”

As a result of Rothecker’s remarks, the St. Paul Police Department opened an investigation into JM Roth’s identity. Rothecker confirmed that he in fact posted the comments and issued an apology soon after.
