Imaginary driver on closed video game course. Do not attempt.

A St. Paul, Minnesota police sergeant is under investigation after allegedly posting a Facebook comment urging drivers to run over Black Lives Matters protesters and keep driving. The comment, since removed, was on a newspaper’s Facebook post about a Black Lives Matter march planned for Martin Luther King Day, which apparently came off without any attempted vehicular manslaughter, despite the cop’s best efforts. Even so, let’s just hope this idea doesn’t spread to crowds at Donald Trump rallies.

The post was discovered Saturday by Andrew Henderson, a Twin Cities activist who regularly videotapes cops to keep ’em honest. Henderson made a 36-minute video documenting his report of the post to the St. Paul Police, if you’re into that sort of thing. Henderson filed a complaint with the department naming Sgt. Jeffrey M. Rothecker as the officer who posted the comment; on the Facebooks, Rothecker allegedly posted as “JM Roth,” said Henderson, who administers a “Minnesota Cop Block” page where “JM Roth” frequently commented. Henderson also told police a “woman whose last name is Rothecker had indicated on Facebook that she’s married to ‘JM Roth,'” according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Here’s “Roth’s” advice on how to run over troublesome protesters and get away with it:

run them over facebook

We always take our legal advice from Facebook comments, especially when it comes to attempting to get away with running people down with a car. To his credit, the commenter does at least say you absolutely have to call 911 so you’re not guilty of a hit and run, and as we all know from “stand your ground” cases, virtually any violence against black people can be excused if you yell “I am in fear for my life!” loudly enough. This is even better, since you can stand your ground while seated comfortably in your vehicle. Sadly, “JM Roth” didn’t offer tips for how to get your insurance company to pay for any damage to your vehicle from hitting a scary black person at speed. Best to buy a Hummer just in case.

It looks like the St. Paul PD is at least taking seriously the alleged threat and Henderson’s evidence suggesting that “JM Roth” is Rothecker; Sgt. Rothecker has been placed on leave while the department investigates. Senior Commander Shari Gray, the head of the department’s internal affairs division, said:

This was of grave concern because of the upcoming event and we want to make sure everybody’s safe … If we needed to change tactics or operational security on the event, we needed to do it. And then, two, make sure that if indeed this was one of our officers, that it’s addressed quickly.

Monday, the department issued a statement calling the Facebook comment “offensive, disappointing, concerning and does not reflect in any way — or align with — the views, values and practices of the St. Paul Police Department,” adding that if the investigation determines it actually was posted by a St. Paul PD officer, then “swift, strong and decisive disciplinary action will be taken.” We’re a bit worried that the statement didn’t also refute the purported legal advice, since somewhere out there, some character from a Carl Hiaasen novel is almost certainly saying, “Yeah, but they didn’t say it was bad advice!” and fantasizing about running down some troublemakers with his lifted LandCrusher. Yr Wonkette is not a lawyer, but we’ll go out on a limb and say that’s a very bad idea, especially if you leave notes about it on social media.

    Once the investigation is complete, Rothecker will be, of course, cleared of all wrongdoing and promoted.

    Maybe the Black Lives Matter folks can find a bird sanctuary to take over instead. May get some blankets and energy drinks.

      Just stop in at a paint shop. Alternatively, commit more crimes to lure the tank in, and then steal that.

          GTA V was a real let down, especially compared to III, IV, Vice City, The Ballad of Gay Tony.
          V did not have the voice acting of IV and Vice City, did not have the great mini games like San Andreas – bland, bland, bland. I liked all the Saint’s Rows better than V – and I bought a PSIII specifically to play V on release day.

    My memories of the St. Paul Police are that it doesn’t matter what they say… it’s all just cover-up bullshit for keeping the streets as white and scared as possible… (snark switch ON)…

  • Oblios_Cap

    And yet I see comments out on the intertoobs about how cops are disparaged by society at large and are afraid to do anything since it might be recorded.
    If they do their jobs right, what do they have to fear?

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Funny enough, most of the rest of us are recorded at our jobs routinely. It’s sort of normal anymore

    • lroom

      None of the cops I know are in fear of doing their jobs. You know why? Cause they are not goddamned psychopaths like most of these others including this guy. A real police officer would not act like this. If your afraid doing your job will get you in trouble on video then do your job the right way and you won’t have a problem. FFS

    Conservatives have been trying to tell me all day that he has the First Amendment right to advocate premeditated murder and conspiracy to conceal as his role as a police officer and that the protesters would “have it coming.”

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      They’re a bit wrong.
      No, they’re a lot wrong. Basicly everything they said? The reverse is true.

      • Brewerofbeers

        One guy actually stated that BLM protesters deserve to be run over if they are in the street, and just as horrifyingly claimed if a woman gets drunk and is raped then she too shares the responsibility for being raped.

        • MrBlobfish

          Would that be the Bureau of Land Management? Didn’t think so.

          • PubOption

            It could be, if the poster were a Bundyite.

          • Jen_Baker_VA

            giggle. yeah he coulda asked the guy “you are advocating them running over the Bundys? WHAT KIND OF CONSERVATIVE ARE YOU????”

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          That guy, incidentaly, is why we keep fighting the good fight.
          Also, he is probably a rapist.
          Aslo liz made a good point above. Next time they start spouting, show them pictures of tea partiers marching in the streets.

          • Mehmeisterjr

            Also, he is probably a rapist.

            So now even being a rapist is not politically correct? This isn’t the America I remember of 8 years ago!

    • marxalot

      No, see, the First Amendment covers the peaceful assembly, and the legal permits afforded thereto, not the incitement. And no, it doesn’t matter what color, rank, or position either party is.
      Sorry for the confusion.

        I think you misread my post?

      • SuspectedDemocrat

        Yeah but if you use your car as a weapon, it’s covered under the 2nd Amendment (or as Trump calls it, “Two Amendment”)

    • TheBidenator

      I have a question- how many times was the n-bomb dropped to describe BLM protestors?

  • marxalot

    For what it’s worth: if you hit a marcher in a protest or march operating with a parade permit (or your local equivalent), then it doesn’t matter that they were blocking the street, or attempting to cross outside of a pedestrian crossing.
    Also: FFS.

    True story. A plainclothes cop in an unmarked car damn near ran me over in a cross walk. I slapped the trunk of the car and the asshole jumps out yelling “that’s vandalism” (it isn’t) and flashing his badge. So he ups to me, and I ups to him. Turns out he didn’t want to tangle with my employer, Evil Incarnate, LLC. Did I mention I’m a white man and was wearing my little suit and tie?

  • Calli Arcale

    I wonder if this guy ever tried to enforce Minnesota’s pedestrian right-of-way law, given that his advice violently contradicts it. Minnesota law says that you must stop and yield to any pedestrian who is in the street, regardless of whether or not they are in a crosswalk or have a walk signal. The St Paul police were rather famously enforcing it quite strictly a few years ago, which makes this all the more ironic. I mean, it’s a horrible disgusting post by any standards, but jeez . . . even if you have absolutely no respect whatsoever for human life, that doesn’t magically make it legal to mow people down for obstructing traffic.

            Their idea of a joke is not funny.

    According to Fox, there is a “war on the police.”

    • BeliTsari

      On FOX, “everyone will be world-famous for fomenting hate crimes, sadistic mass killing and torturing dissidents for 15 minutes.”

  • Angry_Cop

    That’s literally the worst legal “advice” I’ve ever read.

    • Lefty Frizzell

      Hannity libel! Remember he advised gun-owning blacks that if they’re pulled over by traffic cops they should get out of the car and reach for their waistband.

        He seriously did that?

    Racism is indeed over.

    All together, now: He seems nice.

    Sadly, “JM Roth” didn’t offer tips for how to get your insurance company
    to pay for any damage to your vehicle from hitting a scary black person
    at speed.

    JM Roth would certainly recommend that you wear that dented hood as a badge of honor.

    I come from a family of law-enforcement officers. Everything from officers on the beat, to Correctional Officers, to a Police Chief. (ex.,my grandfather taught meat cutting(!) in a prison during the depression).

    They would not recognize the borderline criminals and psychos that are allowed to be police officers today.

    Racism is indeed running over.

    Maybe the St. Paul police dude should check out how the crazy liberal SF Bay Area cops handle stuff like this…

    You notice that the St. Paul police did not refute the claim…Because they condone the action, just not the being recognized and called out part…

    • DantesE

      Not going to make the call that the police “condone” this advice. There is however a strong possibility they can’t refute it because its true. I know where I live if someone steps off a curb not at a cross walk or corner or crosses against the light then there is no liability to the driver if that pedestrian gets hit. This country values cars over people. Now in Japan (long long time ago not sure today) pedestrians ALWAYS have right of way so they cross wherever they want. Thank God too since I lost count how many times I should have been run over. Since they drive on the left side of the road I kept looking the wrong way to cross the street. Off course one has to be a pretty sick fuck to run someone over deliberately but then sick fuck is just another way to say RWNJ.

        …Sick fuck Libelz!

    • Calli Arcale

      That’s because their PR department stinks; he isn’t telling you how to do it legally, he’s telling you how he thinks you can avoid prosecution and civil liability for it. It is not in any sense legal to intentionally hit pedestrians in Minnesota, and I really doubt it would play out the way he thinks it would.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    I’m surprised he didn’t advise people to bring along their concealed weapons, for self defense, you know.

  • William_C_Diaz

    St. Paul’s cop runneth over…

    Have a great day!
