Nate Silvester

An Idaho cop was suspended this week after a video of him poking fun at NBA star LeBron James went viral on TikTok.

Last week, after an officer killed a teenage girl wielding a knife to save the life of another black girl, James threatened the cop in a Twitter post that said “YOU’RE NEXT #accountablity.” It was after James quickly removed the tweet and then refused to apologize that Deputy Nate Silvester made a video mocking the Los Angeles Lakers player and pretending to ask him for advice on policing.

“Excuse me, could you please put the knife down, sir,” Silvester yelled before asking a fictional James “you don’t care if a black person kills another black person, but you do care if a white cop kills a black person, even if he’s doing it to save the life of another black person?” Read more from The Federalist.
