ELYSIAN, MINNESOTA — Yes. You read right. He said those words. It’s just crazy how bold these elected officials are getting out here.
Note: The Trump regime has truly fooled these people into saying whatever they feel, whenever they feel. It’s going to end up getting someone seriously hurt out here.

She and her daughter had just watched Castile take a full clip into his arm and chest from former officer Jeronimo Yanez.
Well, days ago — according to Raw Story — Reynolds received an $800,000 settlement from two Minnesota cities for the trauma she and her daughter endured during the incident.
According to CityPages, the settlement comes due to her witnessing the shooting and for being wrongly arrested afterward.
The source reports a city official has criticized Reynold’s settlement by predicting she’ll blow the money on drugs.

Elysian City Councilor and Rice County Police Sergeant Tom McBroom mentioned the following statements via Twitter.
“She needs to come off County and State Aid now that she has some cash. It’ll be gone in six months on crack cocaine.”

When a person responded to McBroom’s tweet and asked him why he thought that way about Diamond Reynolds, he replied, “History.”
So, of course, CityPages called him on his bulls**t.
Initially, McBroom denied actually writing the tweet. However, when they presented him with irrefutable evidence regarding his offensive comment, he confessed he was the original author.
Then, McBroom attempted to backtrack the comment and “explain.”

According to the source, McBroom says he wasn’t trying to be racist concerning the statement. Rather, it was out of concern for “how people who win large settlements often invest that money unwisely.”
If THAT isn’t the biggest crock of s**t!…
The source quotes McBroom as follows.
“I’ve seen them come to court. They’ve lost their children, but they come to court dressed to the nines with Michael Kors purses. To be frank with you, they don’t have a pot to piss in. I see it time and time again and I just shake my head and say why wasn’t there anyone to help that person?”
At the time of the report, the Rice County Sheriff’s Office had stated it was reviewing McBroom’s statements regarding Reynolds.
