Minnesota Lynx

Off-duty Minneapolis cops walked off the job at a Minnesota Lynx WNBA game after four players wore Black Lives Matter warmup t-shirts on Saturday.

The Lynx players, Lindsay Whalen, Maya Moore, Rebekkah Brunson, and Seimone Augustus, held a press conference prior to the game to lend their support to the pro black activist movement.

The ladies wore custom t-shirts that read: "Change Starts With Us: Justice & Accountability” on the front, and the names of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile on the back, and the words "Black Lives Matter".

Minnesota Lynx Sterling and Castile were killed by cowardly officers in Louisiana and Minnesota last week.

The shirts also honored the 5 slain Dallas Police officers who were shot and killed by a deranged 25-year-old army reservist in retaliation for the shooting deaths.

Four off-duty officers who were working the Lynx vs Dallas Wings WNBA game walked off the job at the Target Center on Saturday. They also took their names off a list to work future games.

Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the police union, praised the officers for quitting. “I commend them for it,” he said.

Kroll threw a jab at the team when a reporter asked if "only" four cops walked off the job.

“They only have four officers working the event because the Lynx have such a pathetic draw," he said.

The Target Center also hires private security for the Lynx games. The Lynx defeated the Wings 93-56.

Thanks to loyal reader Lovezoe for the tip.

  • SpillyNillie

    Who cares...they should learn to walk away from unarmed black men. Please and thanks!

  • sunni_daze

    Nothing hurts like the truth, it really upsets folks. Piss them right off

  • LeBrick James

    Really? Is there a single one of those cops that thinks the Philando Castile shooting was necessary?
    Shame on them.

  • NegraGata

    Just proves who's racist and who's not!!! Why were they so bothered???

  • Trey

    oh well

  • vern

    I don't know why people are so small minded. Just because people support Black Lived Matter does not mean that they don't support good police. Looks like the saying go "a hit dog will holler" maybe these 4 cops were guilty of their own racist views and disdain for Black people. They showed their try colors for sure!

  • LeBrick James

    Mama used to say "a hit dog will holler."

  • SpillyNillie

    Is that Jackie Christie up top...a sister maybe?

  • SG

    How about walking off the job after your coworkers kill black men in cold blood?

  • LeBrick James

    yup.
    These shootings are tragic, but one good thing is it allows us to see certain people's true nature. They might smile in your face at work, but then they go on social media and say ignorant stuff that truly shows you who they are.

  • LibraGirlonly

    A bunch of crybaby's.liol

  • iWasteTime

    Good for those ladies and come through Lindsay. I know the hate you are getting is out of control.
    These cops are just proving our point ... smh Do Better

  • morenYAHdelsur

    His comments show exactly why they wore those shirts.

  • Torae

    White people are a bunch of hypocritical whining cry babies...walk off...if all lives mattered then saying black lives matter wouldnt bother them....

  • That’s Interesting

    I walked up on them talking about brexit, Trump, and immigrants. If I hear something about these unarmed deaths, I'm going IN.

  • Fred G sanford

    Beat ya feet and get to stepping then #thanks for showing you true colors

  • Buttercup

    They walk off the job even after the governor said that Philando wouldn't have been shot had he been white. Such bigotry is despicable.

  • Jen_n_juice

    Boy bye! Yall work the games for extra funds too. So they're hurting themselves more than us

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    Where all the #BlueLivesMatter and free hugs and shyt folks,for the White man that did the courthouse shooting yesterday! Why isn't there any coverage? Because the media can't spin it and sensationalize it.

  • SpillyNillie

    I figured he was yt. By the time I went to bed I still hadn't seen a pic of him...that confirmed it. Him is a pink!

  • yallcrazy

    Exactly

  • Buttercup

    That's part of their privilege. There is absolutely no way that the officer was wrong /sarcasm

  • Fred G sanford

    When white people start getting killed for absolutely no reason what so ever then y'all can create a group called white lives matter which will be never !

  • Libra80sBaby

    fuk this dude mayne.. and fuk them cops that walked out. Those ladies and everybody else have the right to speak on and support issues they want to

  • Low E. TUH!

    Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the police union, praised the officers for quitting. “I commend them for it,” he said.
    -
    HEREIN LIES THE PROBLEM.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don't hear any black men saying they are not going to buy young thug music after he said it was ok for a man to wear a dress. I did hear some of you complain about not supporting Derray the BLM activists because he is gay. Hmmmmmm

  • MissHarlem

    ??? that's the exact cops I wouldn't want at a game. So no news here. I just told someone alljobsmatter when was asked about bluelivesmatter. I got the confused look to which I responded exactly. I can't clock out from being black. I'm black forevaa

  • Low E. TUH!

    TUH

  • Low E. TUH!

    LMAO!!!!!

  • Buttercup

    YAAAAAAS!

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    “They only have four officers working the event because the Lynx have such a pathetic draw,”
    ^^^^^^^^^
    That is the WNBA as a whole.

    Asshole

  • mainey

    sooo because you're police you can't call out other police for their wrongful actions? You stand with them? This is the problem right here. Let more walk off the job. Expose yourself.

  • Buttercup

    The thing that burns my biscuits the most is that folks have somehow put an imaginary "only" in front of black. It's hard for me to comprehend, but it's very telling of their mindset.

  • hi-liter

    BYE. Them BIG arse women can protect themselves. These policemen are acting like babies. They got all the authority and acting like people are taking sides. Start giving these bad cops life in prison, I bet money that will curtail some of these senseless arse shootings of unarmed black men.

  • Anna Maria

    Let him go. Who cares? This is not newsworthy.

  • LeBrick James

    ...

  • MissHarlem

    Facepalm. What's the correlation? What man is rocking his music? Boys yes not men at least not any man I know. Thankful for that. And as stated yesterday no mature person will go against someone who has different beliefs when we all fighting the same cause.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Those sick bastards who shot Philandro and Alton need their badges taken and they need to be locked away.

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    I figured it was too when I still hadn't seen a pic and Fox News and CNN wasn't covering it.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I am sure there are young men that listen to his music. I'm not talking about older men...

  • Buttercup

    When I tell you I have not heard a peep about this? Folks haven't even mentioned the marshmallow candies.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

  • Tammie Reed

  • Boonella

  • yoni

    Has the fact that 3 officers were killed yesterday in Michigan by a white man been discussed/addressed, drug through the media? I haven't been here in a couple of days, I may have missed the post.

  • hi-liter

    Havent heard a peep.

  • SLucky

    I know. As if "too" behind "matter" would have really mattered! I ask the same question, why are we arguing over the name instead of looking at the issues that are being brought up and deal with whether or not there is some legitimacy to it?

  • T3

    Every time!

  • Hmmm~?

    BLM promotes violence against police, so why would they stay and protect people who don't support them? This is common sense.

  • AG

    They totally ignored the Dallas police shield that was also on the shirt....

  • Blak

    I would be upset too if someone advocated violence then called me a racist and forcing me to protect you in the process. Use common sense

  • Buttercup

    If you don't sit your dumb self down somewhere and read the mission statement of #BLM!!!!!!!

  • AnonymousRose

    I wish they will take a woman cycle with that dress they wear, well mine atleast, lol,

  • T3

    Exactly! I don't think "too" after matter would make their arses feel any better.

  • Buttercup

    It wouldn't have mattered one iota.

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    They was quick as hell to give the initial report but once the identity was confirmed the news outlets simultaneously forgot about it.

  • yoni

    Not one?

  • Buttercup

    I'm SO SEW TSO glad folks aren't falling for the okey doke any longer.

  • NegraGata

    That's stupid, they have a job to do that they are paid to do. If they did it correctly people wouldn't be talking shit about them. We're more afraid of those idiots than they are of us, after all they have BADGES AND GUNS that they stand behind to commit murder, then they get to take their sick asses home, while another family grieves the loss. What did N.W.A. say back in the 80's???

  • LibraGirlonly

    Lmao, for real!!! They were talking about it on the radio this morning. The powers that be are behind this black man in a dress thing. He is in some campaign add with a skirt or dress on. I think it's the same designer Jaden Smith was in.

  • Buttercup

    "If it doesn't apply, let it fly" is too much like right, huh?

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    They protect the Klan at all protest.

    GOOD BYE you are the weakest link

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    1. Who's advocating the violence. Their shirts have names of VICTIMS, including the Dallas PD
    2. Your JOB forced you to protect people. If you sign up to be a cop you know the risks, you are a PUBLIC servant. You don't get any special treatment. That's like thanking a fire fighter for not throwing someone he doesn't agree with in the fire. GTFOH!

  • LibraGirlonly

    What? Goes to look.

  • NegraGata

    That's stupid, they have a job to do that they are paid to do. If they did it correctly people wouldn't be talking shit about them.

    BTW - BLM DOES NOT PROMOTE violence against police. You need to quit watching the FOX news stations...

  • LibraGirlonly

    Ooh I just assumed he was black hummmmm.

  • iWasteTime

    Where did they advocate violence?
    You can be anti police brutality and not be anti police.

  • AnonymousRose

    lol

  • LeBrick James

    You use the name "Blak", but I suspect you're not really "black".

    Nice try though.

  • jussaying

    this so much... i don't understand why people seem to polarize everything. nowhere has the BLM advocated for violence committed against officers....

  • Buttercup

    It's not a knock at you, but do you see how we've been conditioned? His name is Larry Gordon.

  • LibraGirlonly

  • yoni

    "If 'Black Lives Matter' bothers you because it doesn't say 'All Lives Matter', but the saying 'Blue Lives Matter', doesn't bother you.....then BLACK was the operative word."

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    A job they signed up and committed to half arse.

  • iWasteTime

    BLM is a anti police brutality movement. They do not promote violence against police. So much so that the Dallas shooter was MAD at the BLM peaceful protest and allegedly did what he thought should be done.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Yessss I do see.

  • hi-liter

    Nada.

  • yoni

  • MissHarlem

    I guess I'm not into what they are reporting on us because I see and know different. Won't let that dictate any thoughts.

  • Jusstlookn To Stay Woke

    Good BYE! Black Lives Matter promotes the support of victims and the rights of blacks.

    on the other hand...THE KLAN promotes violence and hate.

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    A lot of us did yesterday. The way it was reported, by mentioning the Dallas shooting, most people probably thought the person was black.

  • jussaying

    lmfao.... lmfao, i think you should start an #ALLJOBSMATTER movement to shut the damn police up, see how white folks feel when you counteract like they do to us.

  • Buttercup

    Speaking of tell-it-like-it-is comedians, Dick Gregory is going to be here on the 24th. I want to go, but I don't know if my emotions can handle it.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I pay close attention to anything that ha to do with black people because I am aware that they want to destroy my community by any means necessary. I need to know what they are up to symbols and all.

  • LeBrick James

    I might have to start learning how to use the block feature on this site. smh.

  • Buttercup

    Why hasn't his criminal history been on blast? He was charged with r@pe, sexual assualt, kidnapping, and domestic violence.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Lmao sooo they just want our purty shiny skin color. Lol I would too if I was pasty.

  • LeBrick James

    Racist white folk will see what they want to see, and hear what they want to hear.
    You really cant reason with them.

  • NegroDamus

    I bet they wont do that at an NBA or NFL game....fawk them sensitive ass, hit dog hollering ass pigs

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    First off, that's not what BLM does and the Black azz bottom line is that they don't have a got dam choice on who they can protect AND SERVE. They signed up for the job, maybe you need to read the police mission statement/ code etc. over as well because it seems that you are confused about their duties and responsibilities.

  • jussaying

    because white people are so defensive about their white guilt... i posted something about ford cars and how the first car was actually invented by a black man. first person to comment was a white person on my fb talking about 'no one ever said ford created the first car, first production line..etc' it was a good five to six min clip of a documentary, and rather than discuss the subject matter and the fact that not many people know of the black inventor who created the first car, he came to ford's defense lol... like boy sit down.

  • MsSincerity

    RULE 1. DO NOT ARGUE WITH BEIGE TROLLS!!!

  • MissHarlem

    Facepalm. Brainwashed to oblivion

  • RespectSelf

    I think that white people that are offended by #blacklivesmatter are racist. I'm sold on that! Like there is no need to be moved by a group a people saying that their lives matter unless you don't agree. My understanding of the "no justice, no peace" is that they will continue to do "peaceful protest" when there's no justice.... But they have people that come out to "support" who are "about that life" and prefer violence. But this is simple stuff to understand... people who say "all lives matter" and "blue lives matter" on a "black lives matter" post---- yall basically saying I don't give an flying F about yall. Just like that white lady said... It like going to a breast cancer event promoting other illnesses. Stop

  • yoni

    I LOVE that sensible man! LOVE HIM!

  • ThickyFromPhilly

    Nope...no post on the white deranged mad man killing. It barely made a blip in the media. I guess it doesn't tie into the agenda they are pushing.

  • LibraGirlonly

    The correlation is the oppressor.

  • NothingIsImpossible

    Took the words straight from the tip of my fingers

  • Hmmm~?

    Doesn't matter what their "mission statement" is. BLM has been promoting violence against the police since it's inception. Pigs in a blanket? The numerous BLM folks who agreed with what happened in Dallas? Ya'll constantly talking about "fighting back" and "time for war"? Don't act brand new. I went to the BLM rally at Piedmont just last week and talked to the people there, same anti-police narrative. All of you replying to my comment are delusional and extremely disingenuous.

  • yoni

    It's not hard. It's over there ------>>>^^^^. See it? #hoveryourmouse

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I appreciate you

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I knew once everyone reported "shooter" that he was white. Sad that THIS is the norm when reporting.
    Also, the truth is being exposed about Micah (vet who supposedly did the killings) and the fact that no fam was called to talk him down, how quickly the negotiating was over, yet they blew him up with a robot and a bomb. We're supposed to take what they said and be content. I don't believe them.

  • yoni

    Notice on the news when they are reporting a YT suspect he's labeled as a "male". No color indicated. Just "male". Never do you hear the word "YT male".

    Did you see the "pic" of the Mr. Micah X "blown up"? But no report of structural damage to the place where it happened? I never believe THEM. WE as a ppl never violently and physically retaliate. We are not ready.

  • yoni

    It never does.

  • NegroDamus

    No 1 curr...thats what private security is for. they really only hire police to throw them a bone out of "respect"

  • PettyEyezPrime

    See, their agenda is getting messy. They didn't expect the white people to show out. Actually worse then us regarding the recent killings. White people standing for BLM has them scratching their heads and forcing them to show their hands. They can't spin white folks. Even when they tried with the Gov. in the Philando murder, saying he was taken to safety, he said don't lie on me and joined the protesters.

  • LibraGirlonly

    No and I think as a whole we are woke and can see their agenda clearly. I am proud of us I must say!!!!!

  • MookieFly

    Exactly. Lay that ish out like a blanket. But they won't. Not in this current climate.

  • Ni Ni

    You can't please these people. The ladies supported the fallen officers as well, what more do they want?

  • Hmmm~?

    There's nothing you can "save" me from or "educate" me on. All I said was that BLM promotes anti-police violence, which it clearly does? How are you people even arguing with me on this, when there were plenty of comments on that Dallas post fully supporting what the shooter did, all of them with 20-40+ upvotes? Jesus ya'll are so tiring.

  • Buttercup

    For a minute, I forgot about that block feature. Take care.

    I appreciate them for being honest and not wanting to be in that situation. Racist people can not become un-racist in a matter of a new black lives matter movement, however I'd rather them take their racist as*** home then to be around me!

    Off duty does NOT mean that. It means they were NOT In uniform!!

    Off duty means : 1. not engaged in the performance of one's usual work: an off-duty police officer. 2. of, relating to, or during a period when a person is not at work.

    You are just triong to start mess.

  • Sandra Dee Spidey

    My 18 yo cousin came to visit me from the West Indies last summer for a couple of months. The poor girl said she was scared of cops and white people based purely on what she sees on tv at home. She would get nervous when we were out in a crowd of them because she was sure they would turn on us eventually.

    I mentioned this to an acquaitance of mine (she's black too but a bit . . . uninformed, I guess) and the woman laughed and joked that it was the black folks my cousin should be scared of. I told her that that's what we've all been conditioned to think but my cousin, who was NOT conditioned to think poorly of black people was evaluating the country based on facts and news reports.

    Me saying they quit (cause they did) is not me trying to start mess slow poke

    Thank you for clarifying things Mr. Kroll. Wonder what Harteau will do with him? Nothing perhaps.

    Damn you hit it on the nail. Your message should be on the news as a response to these cold blooded racist cop killers. White people can't stand when we come together to support each other. All they want to do is to keep us down and not support one another. More and more of them need to walk off the job they are doing themselves and society a big favor. ?

    Why do they get so bent out of shape?. Like I read before it is like getting upset with the "Walk for Breast Cancer" because it's only singling out breast cancer, what about the other cancers, or AIDS or Heart Disease or Diabetes etc.. I mean come on.. the shit is common sense..How people don't get that this is the same shit.. Concentrating on what's at the forefront... Supporting Black Lives is not anti everyone else...uurggghhh..

  • TOO REAL

    This shows the police ignorance. They can mourn the killing of cops but citizens are not allowed to mourn the killing of innocent people and if they do then it gives the police the right NOT TO DO THEIR JOBS. Really. Those shirts said nothing derogatory about the police. The shirts just had the names of the men recently killed by police. I guess GUILT ate their asses up and they walked off the job with no disciplinary action from their superiors. Damn shame. Talk about being petty.

  • TOO REAL

    To the punk Lt. Kroll, the Lynx has their own security because they (1) refuse to pay your officers overtime to compensate what they are not paid by the police department and secondly they don't feel safe with your gun happy officers so, don't talk about their attendance level. You are showing why the country is in the state it's in when the police force is lead by petty and ignorant individuals as yourself. Handle the union business and leave comments to people who has something intelligent and relevant to say.

  • Hmmm~?

    Does it matter? The anti-cop mentality is near synonymous with BLM. Matter of fact, since you people are clearly in denial, go to the BLM hashtag next time another police shooting occurs. Or search a hashtag of the name of one of the recent police shooting victims. It's right there in black and white. How you people are actually fighting me on this when this is something extremely prevalent is beyond me.

  • Hmmm~?

    You're clearly lacking in common sense, logical thinking, and proper eyesight if you genuinely don't believe that BLM is anti-police.

  • SameoleJ

    Who are you people? You know what never mind. I stopped even discussing this with people with your mindset. The BLM people have gone on record numerous times and stated that they are NOT against police, just against the killing of some many blacks.

  • Hmmm~?

    Again, does it matter? Regardless of what "the BLM people" say, BLM at it's core is anti-police and anti-white. The self-appointed "leaders" of BLM might not feel this way, but that is the mentality that many of it's followers have. Black people already hold some level of disdain for police officers and white people, and the inception of BLM has only furthered this mentality. Again, if you truly don't believe me, go on Tumblr and scroll through the #blacklivesmatter hashtag. All of the proof you need is right there.
