PROTESTERS CONFRONT FORMER MINNEAPOLIS OFFICERS WITH SHOUTS OF ‘MURDERER.’ When three former Minneapolis Police officers emerged from hearing in a downtown courthouse Friday afternoon, hundreds of protesters, who minutes earlier been line dancing in the street, instantly transformed into an aggressive mob, screaming “murderer” as they followed two of the men to their parked vehicle.

The protesters swarmed around a truck as former officer Thomas Lane got into the front passenger seat and his one-time partner, J. Alexander Kueng, sat behind the driver, his attorney Thomas Plunkett. The officers did not react or engage with protesters as they walked through a gauntlet of protesters who extended their middle fingers and yelled at the men.
