Philly Court Supervisor Fired After He’s Busted Tearing Down Children’s Black Lives Matter Signs

A Philadelphia court supervisor has been fired after a video surfaced on Monday of him tearing down Black Lives Matter protest signs made by children at a South Philadelphia park, reported the Philadelphia Inquirer.

A widely shared video of the incident shows Michael Henkel ripping signs off of a fence while yelling expletives at a woman confronting him over his actions.

When the woman tells him it is not his property, he replied: “I know. It’s the city. I pay for this. … Yeah, my taxes pay for this place, yep.”

“So I can do whatever I want. … I’m always around here, too,” Henkel went on.

“Great. I live right here,” the woman can be heard saying. “Black Lives Matter!”

“Not to me, they don’t,” replied.

According to CNN host Jake Tapper, who grew up in Philly, a source told him that “top officials of the city of Philadelphia are aware of this video of a court employee.”
