Title

Bob Kroll “Butthole” Plaque

Coverage

824 18th Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN, 55418, The United States of America

Description

The sign is a no parking sign showing a capital letter “P” with a red circle with a diagonal dash through it. Affixed over the “P” of the sign is a clear plaque with a monotone image of the bust of former Minneapolis police lieutenant Bob Kroll. On his head are red sparkly horns typical of devil iconography. Below Kroll’s bust in all capital letters is the word “Butthole,” which is possibly a play on rhyming Bob Kroll’s name. This is located in the vicinity of the Minneapolis Police Officers Federation building.
The Minneapolis Police Officers Federation became a site of unrest following the murder of George Floyd in May 2020 at the hands of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin. Robert “Bob” Kroll was the president of the federation at the time and was highly criticized for his defense of Chauvin. Additionally, Kroll has been the subject of multiple internal investigations and complaints. Kroll retired in January 2021.
