Do Police Have Racist Boogaloo Boys As Cops? Some Think So After This Officer Photo

The Boogaloo Boys are a group described as in Refinery 29 as “mostly white, heavily armed men who claim they have a “libertarian” bent, and have shown up to protests against police violence in recent weeks armed to the teeth and looking to start a race war.” One man, Air Force Sgt. Steven Carrillo, was charged in the shooting of Dave Patrick Underwood, a federal officer in during a George Floyd protest.

They are also known for wearing Hawaiian shirts.

This vlog is based on a Facebook post made 9 hours ago. It reads (by one resident) “If you are not familiar with the Boogaloo Bois, you should be. They are one of the scarier far right militia/racist types. Wearing Hawaiian type shirts is their thing. Here, we see one of them in the police department.”

The person who took and posted the video wrote “I’m watching a team of at least 15 OPD serve a warrant on a black family with small child in West right now, with assault rifles out. One of the cops is wearing a Hawaiian shirt under his plate carrier. I called out “hey Boogaloo boy! Since when does OPD dress like Nazis?” They know what it is. (It’s all over now, cops have left)”

I am in the process of reaching out to the Police, and to elected officials, for answers to this.

Stay tuned.
