“A Rice County official scrambled to clarify the meaning behind a controversial tweet over an $800,000 settlement to Diamond Reynolds nearly a year and a half after her boyfriend, Philando Castile, was shot and killed by police during a traffic stop as she sat in the passenger seat.
“She needs to come off County and State Aid now that she has some cash. It’ll be gone in 6 months on crack cocaine,” tweeted Tom McBroom, a Rice County Sheriff deputy and a City Council member in Elysian, a southern Minnesota town of about 600 residents.
His tweet was in response to a report earlier this week that St. Anthony city officials will pay $675,000 to resolve claims by Reynolds that she and her daughter suffered emotional distress and subjected to false arrest when Castile was shot by a St. Anthony police officer in July 2016. Reynolds will receive another $125,000 from the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust and the city of Roseville, making the total settlement $800,000.”
McBroom’s tweet drew ire on social media, with one tweeter saying: “Lot of false assumptions on your part.”
Another tweeter questioned why McBroom would draw such a conclusion. “I’m guessing stereotypes. #uneducated.”
“History,” McBroom tweeted in reply.”
