John Thompson, who recently won his Primary for 67A in St. Paul, goes off and screams at neighborhood children, residents, and neighbors of Police Union Leader Bob Kroll.
“F*CK, Hugo Minnesota!”

In a disturbing trend, an angry mob targeted the home of Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll on Sunday. A Facebook post from the mob’s organizer, Racial Justice Network, accuses “KKKroll” of defending “killer cops” and claims the union leader has “dozens of complaints filed against him for excessive force.”
Video shows incoming Minnesota State House Rep. John Thompson, a Democrat, leading the mob, hurling epithets and obscenities at frightened children standing outside Kroll’s home. The mob also took swings at piñatas that depicted Kroll and his wife.
“I’m a black man being terrorized by the f****** klansman right here,” Representative-elect Thompson shouted. “We are terrorized by the grand wizard. Ya’ll got the grand wizard living in your god**** neighborhood. All the klan exist in Hugo, Minnesota and it’s right here. Don’t run now. Don’t run now, racist white people. I’m here. Oh yeah, we pull up. We pull the f*** up.”
The incoming state representative then addressed someone off-camera carrying a Blue Lives Matter sign, a pro-law enforcement symbol.
“Come on over here with your Blue Lives Matter sign,” Thompson threatened. “Blue lives ain’t s***. And if people in Hugo don’t support black people, f*** Hugo, Minnesota.”
