St. Paul police sergeant says he's sorry for telling people to run over marchers

 


A St. Paul police sergeant apologized Wednesday for a Facebook post urging drivers to run over Black Lives Matter marchers.

“I am extremely sorry for posting what I did, I understand that the post was insensitive and wrong. My poor choice of words conveyed a message I did not intend and am not proud of,” Sgt. Jeff Rothecker wrote in a statement, which was sent out by a St. Paul Police Federation spokesman.

The sergeant was put on paid administrative leave after police watchdog Andrew Henderson told the police department about a Facebook comment related to a Pioneer Press article. The article was about a march on Martin Luther King Jr. Day calling for justice for men shot and killed by police.
