This latest video of Black Lives Matter leader Lexis Figuereo is from an event on Tuesday July 6, 2021. The City Council was about to meet and Mr. Figuereo was apparently being asked to wait before being allowed up the stairs of city hall to the meeting. The officer was waiting for his supervisor’s instructions to let him pass.
At one point in this video, Figuereo tells the officer repeatedly to “Suck my black d…”
When asked by the Times Union why he said this he responded that he has no respect for the police.
“I’m not going to stand there and have police laugh and smile at me while I’m trying to get into a meeting. And playing dumb. When I asked what door to go to for the City Council meeting. I have no idea. I’m not a rated -G person. At the time, I was angry and I said that. I don’t apologize.”Lexis Figuereo, Times Union July 7, 2021
One of the disturbing aspects of this video is that Mr. Figuereo put this up on the web himself. He wasn’t caught acting this way, he apparently is proud of it. It simply demonstrates again how troubled this man is.
The irony is that the three police officers demonstrated their training and discipline by maintaining a calm and professional demeanor in spite of the abuse being heaped on them.
Imagine if the police had addressed him in a similar manner. What would the coverage of the incident been like?
