Jacob Pederson: St. Paul Police Officer Accused of Starting #GeorgeFloyd Riot [WATCH]

*The internet is convinced that Officer Jacob Pederson of the Saint Paul Police Department is the mysterious man seen in a viral video wearing all black with an umbrella and a pink gas mask breaking out windows at a Minneapolis Auto Zone on Wednesday  just before the fire broke out and the riots started. 

Pederson is being accused of inciting the chaos that erupted in the city, as the Auto Zone was the first building to burn. 

Footage of the scene shows a protester confronting the man, who then becomes hostile and quickly attempts to flee the scene while being asked if he’s a cop.

On Thursday, Twitter user @GypsyEyedBeauty tweeted a series of screenshots allegedly from Pederson’s ex-wife, and the caption read, “Here are screenshots from his ex wife confirming this is him, along with his photo.”

In the messages, the alleged ex-wife says, “I’m 90% sure. Voice walk everything.” The other person named “Megan” agrees then asks, “Do you recognize any of the gear?” The ex-wife responds, “The gas Mask.” 

She also noted that Pederson’s partner was working the fires in the city. She goes on to write, “That’s my gas mask. THE GLOVES TOO. HOLY SH*T IM SHAKING.” 

A side-by-side image comparison of Pederson and the mysterious man is spreading like wildfire across social media. But the SPPD has disputed the accusation that the #agentprovocateur seen in the viral video is one of their own.

On Thursday night, the SPPD issued the following statement on Twitter: “We are aware of the social media post that erroneously identifies one of our officers as the person caught on video breaking windows in Minneapolis. We’ve seen it. We’ve looked into it. And it’s false.”  

The post goes on to say, “Our officer? He’s been working hard, keeping people and property safe, and protecting the right to peacefully assemble. It’s sad that people would post and share this untrue information, adding more confusion to an already painful time in our community..” 

Many folks lit up the comments of the post to make clear that the police have ZERO credibility, so they ain’t buying it.  

One user wrote, “If he was on the clock where was he at the time of the Auto Zone incident? You should be able to track that information.”

Another added, “Hold a press conference tonight & release the officer’s GPS of his vehicle and call logs. If he wears a Body Cam, please allow it to be reviewed by the press and activist organizations. You need to provide evidence, because your word cannot be trusted and we can’t live like that.”

      How about the fact he showed up with incredible confidence, decked out in gear to hide his identity and prevent any DNA evidence from being left behind, smashes the windows and casually walks away. All while carrying an umbrella while a police helicopter is flying directly above him. It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that the purpose for the umbrella on the sunny 70 degree day was so that the police helicopter could identify him from the air.

    There is a video of the guy in the pink shirt and the umbrella guy walking together and hanging out later. In fact, the pink shirt guy was bussed in and is working together with the umbrella guy.

Geo. Floyd’s Killer Derek Chauvin Has Divorce Settlement DENIED Due to Possibility of Fraud

*A Washington County (Minnesota) judge has rejected a divorce settlement filed by Derek Chauvin’s estranged wife due to the possibility of fraud.

Days after Derek was officially charged with manslaughter and the murder of George Floyd, Kellie Chauvin filed for divorce on May 31. However, divorce attorneys have looked into the paperwork and claimed it may have been a ploy to protect their assets against lawsuits in civil court as reported by Star Tribune. Judge Juanita Freeman wrote in her ruling back in October that a “court has a duty to ensure that marriage dissolution agreements are fair and equitable. One badge of fraud is a party’s transfer of ‘substantially all’ of his or her assets.”

Attorney Marc Beyer stated due to the timing of the divorce filing, the court can suspect that there could be a possibility of fraud but it is still speculation.
“This is just speculation, but it’s possible that the [agreement] was intentionally drafted to get assets out of Chauvin’s name in anticipation of a civil judgment against him from the estate of George Floyd.
