BLM Founder Is Arrested After Confronting Cop with Vile Tirade and Threats

The founder of Black Lives Matter Greater NY was arrested at a Bronx courthouse after being involved in an on-camera clash with a police officer.

Hank Newsome was arrested on Tuesday after berating a officer inside the courthouse.

Newsome, who is 6ft 6in, can be seen towering over the officer, shouting: ‘You think I’m scared of you? You must be out of your f****** mind!’

Still in the officer’s face, he then says: ‘You p***y! You see how I’m all up on you? You’re a vagina! A f****** vagina!’

As he is led away, Newsome can again be seen shouting obscenities’ inside the court room which ends in a shoving match according to social media footage.

Officials told CBS that Newsome was taken into custody and given three summonses for disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration.

As court officers ran his name, it was revealed that he had not returned to court to answer summonses he received years previously.

Before releasing him, he was taken to an arraignment court where his older summonses were adjudicated and vacated.

Outside the courthouse, Newsome said: ‘I’m not going to sit here and say that I wasn’t vocal, I care a lot.

‘Yes, I was vocal. I care a lot. A man was hit in the head with a cooler and killed.’

Newsome had been referring to the case he had been at the courthouse to observe, which involved Sgt. Erik Duran who is accused of killing a man after throwing a watercooler at him as he fled a drug bust.

The cop has pleaded not guilty to killing Eric Duprey during the incident that took place last August.

Sergeant Duran was working undercover on the Bronx Narcotics Division at the time, conducting a buy-and-bust operation on Aqueduct Avenue.

According to police, Duprey sold drugs to the plain-clothed cop, who then tried to arrest him.

The fatal impact from the cooler – that was filled with soda cans – caused the suspect to lose control of his scooter and strike a parked Jeep.

The father-of-three then fell to the ground and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Councilwoman Vickie Paladino hit out at the footage of the incident between Newsome and the police officer on social media.

Paladino posted on X, saying: ‘If you are within reach of an officer’s firearm and behaving in an unambiguously hostile and threatening manner like this, you should be tased at the very least.

‘Lethal force should not be out of the question either if tasers are ineffective and he situation escalates.

‘It is beyond absurd that our police have to put up with this. Showing even an ounce of deference to this kind of abject hostility only invites more, and makes the job that much more dangerous.

‘Criminals used to understand that actions like this crossed a line and would lead to bad outcomes.

‘Now they know there are no consequences so they push even further. It’s a very dangerous game, enabled by progressives who cheer the chaos.’

Newsome has a law degree and was a project manager at a law firm before becoming a full-time activist.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com in 2020, he said BLM aimed to develop a highly-trained ‘military’ arm to challenge police brutality head on in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

  • Richard Davis says:

    What does anyone want to bet that he walks on the charges in New York even after saying that they are training a military type force to take on the cops that sounds like a threat to me

  • Frustrated says:

    BLM is nothing but a scam. George Floyd would have died from a drug overdose in time. The riots were uncalled for and those that were involved should have all been arrested for destruction of private property.
