I am saddened to report another Black man, Leneal Frazier, has lost his life due to the recklessness of Minnesota police.
A Minneapolis police officer, who was chasing a carjacking suspect, crashed into Leneal’s car at the intersection of 41st Avenue North and Lyndale Avenue around 12:30 a.m.
Leneal, who was headed to his girlfriend’s home, was killed in the collision.
A second driver was also struck and suffered minor injuries.
Minneapolis police say the carjacking suspect got away.
Watch the news report below.
Darnella took to Facebook in total disbelief as she grieved the senseless death of her uncle.
I honestly can’t believe I’m making this post right now…I’m so hurt…nothing feels real. I woke up to the most horrible news. MINNEAPOLIS police Killed my uncle MY uncle… Another black man lost his life in the hands of the police! I asked my mom several times “he died??”. I couldn’t accept what I was hearing and still can’t . Some things just take time to process.
I’m still in shock and it haven’t fully hit me yet, I broke down in tearsI was hoping it was a dream…but it’s not and this is reality. Minneapolis police has cost my whole family a big loss…today has been a day full of heartbreak and sadness. We went to the spot he was killed at and put beautiful flowers and candles, but even thats not enough to bring him back. It’s not fair how the police can just go around killing people…WHY ARE YOU DOING A HIGH SPEED CHASE ON A RESIDENTIAL RODE???
you took an innocent life trying to catch someone else… I don’t know how to feel… I was just with you at the beach ….if I would’ve known that would be my last time seeing you, I would’ve hugged you so much longer, told you I love you way harder….I love you so much…. please pray for my family His name is Leneal Lamont Frazier. Uncle I love youit’s just hard for me to accept I won’t see you again.
The family has set up a GoFundMe to help pay for Leneal’s funeral arrangements.
It reads, in part:
Leneal was a family-oriented person with a good heart, the biggest heart a person could ever have. He would help anyone, anytime no matter the circumstances. He was the father of 6 children and 1 grandchild. He was the oldest of 5 siblings, so of course, he was their protector. He loved his family and friends. He loves to cook and bbq and to just spend as much time with his family as possible. He was one of the sweetest people you will ever meet.
My sincerest condolences and prayers to the Frazier family.
