A Boston PD officer was captured on body cam bragging to another officer about running over ‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters in a May 31 protest in the city demanding justice for the death of George Floyd.
“Dude, dude, dude, I fuckin’ drove down Tremont—there was an unmarked state police cruiser they were all gathered around,” the sergeant said, laughing. “So then I had a fucker keep coming, fucking running. I’m fucking hitting people with the car, did you hear me, I was like, ‘get the fuck—’”
At this point the sergeant was notified that the officer he was bragging to body cam was on and he tried to change his story.
“Oh, no no no no no, what I’m saying is, though, that they were in front, like, I didn’t hit anybody, like, just driving, that’s all. My windows were closed, the shit was coming in.”
“This thing just fucking went on automatically,” the officer said while the sergeant shook his head.
The footage was given to attorney Carl Williams, who is representing some protesters arrested that night. Williams said the videos shows “the mob mentality” of police officers. “I use ‘mob’ as a sort of a double entendre—mob like the mafia and mob like a group of a pack of wild people roaming the streets looking to attack people,” he added.
