Black Police Officer Charged With Aiding And Abetting Killing Of George Floyd Is Half Nigerian.

There were two Black men at the scene of the police killing in Minneapolis last month that roiled the nation. One, George Floyd, was sprawled on the asphalt, with a white officer’s knee on his neck. The other Black man, Alex Kueng (pronounced as King) was a rookie police officer who held his back as Floyd struggled to breathe.







Floyd, whose name has been painted on murals and scrawled on protest signs, has been laid to rest. Kueng, who faces charges of aiding and abetting in Floyd’s death, is out on bail, hounded at the supermarket by strangers and denounced by some family members.

Long before Kueng was arrested, he had wrestled with the issue of police abuse of Black people, joining the force in part to help protect people close to him from police aggression. He argued that diversity could force change in a Police Department long accused of racism.

He had seen one sibling arrested and treated poorly, in his view, by sheriff’s deputies. He had found himself defending his decision to join the police force, saying he thought it was the best way to fix a broken system. He had clashed with friends over whether public demonstrations could actually make things better.

“He said, ‘Don’t you think that that needs to be done from the inside?’” his mother, Joni Kueng, recalled him saying after he watched protesters block a highway years ago. “That’s part of the reason why he wanted to become a police officer — and a Black police officer on top of it — is to bridge that gap in the community, change the narrative between the officers and the Black community.”

As hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated against the police after Floyd’s killing on May 25, Kueng became part of a national debate over police violence toward Black people, a symbol of the very sort of policing he had long said he wanted to stop.

Derek Chauvin, the officer who placed his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes, has been most widely associated with the case. He faces charges of second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter; Kueng and two other former officers were charged with aiding and abetting the killing. At 26, Kueng was the youngest and least experienced officer at the scene, on only his third shift as a full officer.

The arrest of Kueng, whose mother is white and whose father was from Nigeria, has brought anguish to his friends and family. “It’s a gut punch,” Joni Kueng said. “Here you are, you’ve raised this child, you know who he is inside and out. We’re such a racially diverse family. To be wrapped up in a racially motivated incident like this is just unfathomable.”

Two of Alex Kueng’s siblings, Taylor and Radiance, both of whom are African American, called for the arrests of all four officers, including their brother. They joined protests in Minneapolis.

In a Facebook Live video, Taylor Kueng, 21, appeared with the head of the local NAACP to speak of the injustice that befell Floyd, acknowledging being related to Alex Kueng but never mentioning his name.

Alex Kueng’s sister Radiance posted a video of Floyd’s final minutes on Facebook. “Just broke my heart,” she wrote. In an interview, she said that as a Black man, her brother should have intervened. She said she planned to change her last name in part because she did not want to be associated with her brother’s actions.

“I don’t care if it was his third day at work or not,” she said. “He knows right from wrong.”

  2. That's too harsh of his family, I hope they will be happy if he committed suicide.
    There are ways to go about it and in that situation, maybe he felt what he did was wrong.
    Family is supposed to listen to him first before casting aspersions on him.

    2. No explanation justifies him standing by as an officer, did nothing while an unarmed man was murdered. Civilians standing by did more than him, so no he doesn't deserve to be listened to. I'll do same if any of those animals were related to me

    3. His family are being smart. They are getting his side of the story out via cleverly coordinated PR stories and sympathetic reporters. With only having done three shifts he will probably turn state's witness and receive a reduced sentence.

    4. What they did to that man was heart wrenching. Those officers are evil

    5. His family is doing the right thing. America is civilized not like Nigeria where you cover up for your brother/sister who committed murder because he's your "brother"! Good job family!

    6. @Brown Sucre,this is why nigeria is still the way it is. We are overly sentimental. The siblings did the right thing, in case you don't know, to stay silent is to be complicit. Do you know the ripple effect this will have for them, the way people will look at them and treat them?

  7. His mother is white and his father is a Nigerian. Another profiling.
    What happened to “his mother is white and his father a black man”

    A beg they should do whatever they have to do to all of them. He aided and abetted. He should face the music. If at that time, he told the senior officer to ease off on George’s neck, we can start a new debate on the whole thing. But as it is, let the court decide.

  10. This racial tension and aggravation is so deep, that one cannot begin to phantom, black cops in the US are hated and attacked by their black brothers because the blacks see cops in the US as a threat to their freedom, yet statistics on crime rate shows black crime as highest in the US or is that statistics also made up?

  17. Half Nigerian indeed, please leave Nigeria out of it. It’s only when something bad happens that they remember the person is from nigeria .

  18. Mention the name of his father. He obviously bears his mother’s name so the mother is not sure who impregnated her. Even Obama bears his fathers name. Please and please keep your fatherless son and let him bear the consequences of his madness. He’s not Nigerian. No proof. Don’t call Nigeria abeg no body knows him or where he is from. Keep your son or give him to your father.

  19. I hope his Nigerian father was in his life and responsible. I don't want to watch a documentary about this in ten years time and then it is revealed that the father was seeking citizenship or did not take responsibility for his child's upbringing.

  20. The Co-founder of Black Lives Matter is also of Nigerian descent. Nigerians are the most populous black immigrants in the USA and nail men "do exploits" when it comes to women affairs so its not surprising. All my African American friends dated a Nigerian guy at one time or the other in college!

    1. The leaders of several chapters of BLM, are Nigerians. Unfortunately, this guy’s father, was an absent father.. He did ask his trainer if they should roll him over. He did check for pulse. I think at the end of everything, he will get lesser time.
      See ehn, if this guy has stood up and walked away during that fiasco, he would have been seen as someone who left his coworkers in the middle of a fight. Either way, there was nothing he could do.
