Black Lives Matter Activist Charged with Homicide for Killing NYPD Cop in Hit-and-Run
Jessica Beauvais accused of killing New York police officer after drunken anti-cop rant
A New York Black Lives Matter activist, who allegedly killed an NYPD police officer during a fatal hit-and-run incident, has been indicted on 13 charges, including homicide.
32-year-old Jessica Beauvais of Long Island, New York, filmed herself making anti-police statements while downing shots of tequila and vodka shortly before striking a cop with her car.
Beauvais posted a 1-hour-51-minute live stream video on her Facebook page before killing 43-year-old NYPD Highway Officer Anastasios Tsakos - a human being with a wife and two young children.
While drinking shots of liquor, she slammed police officers and the justice system and played the N.W.A song "F**k Tha Police."
In the rambling post, she boasted about carrying a knife "everywhere I go," told her social media followers that police officers deserve to be killed, and ranted about being pro-capital punishment.
While repeatedly saying "f**k the police" into the camera, she declared that "potential death" is just "part of the job" for cops.
Beauvais has been charged with 13 counts, including aggravated manslaughter and aggravated criminally negligent homicide, and faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted of the charges.
According to a Monday report from the New York Post, Beauvais reportedly had a blood-alcohol level of .15 — which is near twice the legal limit in New York — when she struck the officer with her sedan.
A purportedly drunken Beauvais was said to have struck Tsakos on April 27 while she was driving her vehicle on the Long Island Expressway in Queens.
She was driving with a suspended license at the time, according to The Blaze.
Beauvais reportedly struck Tsakos so hard that he flew 40 feet in the air before landing.
Witnesses reported that Beauvais allegedly swerved her car into Tsakos while he was on the scene of another fatal motor vehicle accident.
Beauvais allegedly fled the scene.
Her vehicle at that point had a caved-in windshield and a traffic cone wedged under the front of its chassis.
She reportedly told investigators that she had been drinking vodka in the hours that led up to the hit-and-run accident.
Just before the accident, Beauvais — a far-left podcaster and radio host — recorded a lengthy anti-police rant in which she blasted the justice system and its police officers.
While discussing the Derek Chauvin trial, Beauvais quoted hip-hop group N.W.A and said, "Like N.W.A. say about the police, if you're going to kill me, at least I get to take someone with me."
"I'm one of those people," she said at the time.
"If I'm going to go, someone is coming."
“What happened to fighting?" she also said during the podcast.
“I grew up on fighting. I like to fight.
"My hands and my feet and teeth.
"It does something for me — what does it do for you?
"F***ing people up never stopped being a thing.
"Shooting people is still wack.
"It means you can't fight.
"It means you're a cop."
She added, "F*** the police."
After she was arrested, Beauvais was seen sobbing as she was led away in handcuffs.
During her initial arraignment, Beauvais said, "I'm sorry.
"I'm sorry that I hit him and now he's dead."
