“I had a debate with one of the lead organizers of the Black Lives Matter movement in St. Paul,” Turner said. “His name was Brian Allen and during this debate with him, I was called a racist, and I was called an Uncle Tom because I said that blacks need to address the killing of each other just like they need to address the killings by police.”Turner said he overheard Allen in conversation with other people that if the officer involved was not charged, “that they would burn down the governor’s mansion. And there was talk about going beyond that and burning down the mansions that are on Summit Avenue with the governor’s mansion.”Turner named another organizer, Curtis Avent.
“He mentioned burning down city hall, he mentioned burning down the capitol building, he mentioned burning down the police station,” Turner said in the video. “These are things mentioned by organizers of Black Lives Matter St. Paul and people were behind it,” he said. “I was not behind it.”
