Stillwater prison employee on leave after video posted of him and wife yelling at protesters [View all]

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."
