Stillwater prison employee on leave after video posted of him and wife yelling at protesters

A sergeant at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater has been placed on “investigatory” leave after he was captured on video Sunday with a woman who was yelling racial slurs at protesters.

The confrontation occurred Sunday afternoon in the 500 block of Stillwater Avenue West during a protest and prayer service that started outside Washington County Attorney Pete Orput’s house in Stillwater.




Protesters have been gathering in Stillwater near Orput’s house and calling on him to bring murder charges against Kim Potter, the ex-Brooklyn Center police officer accused of killing Daunte Wright. Potter has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

In the video, the wife of Sgt. Paul Gorder can be heard calling protesters the N-word. Gorder, who is 55 and has worked at the Minnesota Department of Corrections for 26 years, also can be seen wearing a DOC T-shirt and can be heard yelling and swearing at the protesters.

The article states that the sergeant and his wife appear to be "heavily intoxicated."

1. Hopefully he will be fired

And have his benefits, like pension, removed. This guy sounds like my neighbor. He likes to intimidate and use the n word while he is yelling and screaming at a couple who are also our neighbors.

2. And the American flag shorts -- I hate how these fuckers wrap themselves and everything else

in the flag like they are the true patriots and represent the true America. And everyone who doesn't is a rootless cosmopolitan or a "multi-cultural type" or, well, a f'ing N-blanker.

4. Back in the day (during the anti-war protests of the '60s)

The mainstream said it was the ultimate sign of disrespect to wear even a flag patch on your pants. It might even have been illegal - I don't remember. Apparently times have changed and it's now a badge of honor.

5. I don't think it was ever illegal

but I believe the flag etiquette rules have always held that making clothing out of the flag was disrespectful & people used to pay attention to that.

6. Yes, I was thinking that when he sits down, he sits on the American flag, which is about

as disrespectful as one can get. Or has a bowel or bladder accident, not unlikely at his age and with the amount he apparently drinks
