Cop Involved In George Floyd Death Confronted While Buying Cookies

One of the four former Minneapolis cops charged in the murder of George Floyd was confronted in his local supermarket by a shopper who recognized him and called him out -- as he was buying a pack of Oreo cookies.

J. Alexander Keung was out on bond after his $750,000 bail was met. A shopper quickly recognized him.

“What’s your name?” she asked him. He confirmed that he was one of the officers involved in the killing.

“So you’re out of prison, and you’re comfortably shopping in Cub Foods, as if you didn’t do anything,” the woman asked him.

“I wouldn’t call it ‘comfortably.’ I’d just say getting necessities,” he replied, with the pack of Oreos in hand.

“I don’t think you should have that right. I don’t even think you should be out on bail,” she said.

“I can understand that,” Keung responded. “I’m sorry you feel that way.”

“You don’t have the right to be here,” she said. “You killed somebody in cold blood -- We don’t want you to get your stuff,” she said. “We want you to be locked up.”

Keung tried to walk away calmly but the woman begins to draw more attention to him -- telling passers-by exactly who he is.

“You’re not gonna be able to comfortably live in Minnesota, or anywhere,” she said. “And you will be going back to jail.”
