NJ Corrections Officer Mocks George Floyd’s Death as Protesters Pass
The mayor and police chief of the South Jersey town called it “revolting”
A white man seen mocking George Floyd’s death as Black Lives Matter protesters passed by is a corrections officer in South Jersey, officials confirmed to NBC10.
The man – whose identity has not been verified – was seen kneeling on another man laying down along Delsea Drive as a group marched past in Franklin Township on Monday.
“We have been made aware that one of our officers from Bayside State Prison participated in the filming of a hateful and disappointing video that mocked the killing of George Floyd,” an NJ Department of Corrections statement said. That person, who the statement did not identify, has been suspended and banned while the agency investigates.
