Minnesota police group pulls Democratic endorsements after candidate beats effigy of police union president

A powerful Minnesota police group is pulling its endorsements of several Democrat state legislators after a Democrat Farmer-Labor candidate shouted “Blue lives ain’t s--t” outside Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll’s home.

The candidate was also filmed beating an effigy of Kroll and his wife in their own driveway.

The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association board voted this week to back Republican challengers instead of Democratic incumbents. The association, which represents more than 10,000 officers, had endorsed DFL candidates in both races.

Minneapolis state house candidate John Thompson stood outside the police union leader's home and and gave an expletive-laden speech to a crowd of Black Lives Matter demonstrators in August.

"Come on over here with your ‘Blue Lives Matter’ sign," he said. "Blue lives ain’t s—, and if people in Hugo don’t support black people, f— Hugo.”
