The man suspected of murdering a 19-year-old Burger King worker earlier this week spoke out against social justice and demanded reparations as officers escorted him out of an East Harlem police station.
Winston Glynn, 30, is charged with the murder of Burger King employee Kristal Bayron-Nieves, 19, during a robbery in the early hours of Sunday morning.
As officers drove Glynn out of the police station in a police vehicle, video captured Glynn shouting social justice slogans at an angry crowd gathering outside the station.
Winston Glynn has been arrested by “The World’s Greatest Detectives” for the murder of a 19-year-old girl at a Burger King in East Harlem. DEA members never rest until justice is served.

“Where are our reparations for four hundred years of fucking slavery,” Glynn shouted. The surrounding crowd blasted Glynn as he was escorted into the police vehicle.
“Basura,” a bystander shouted to Glynn, using the Spanish word for “garbage.” “She gave you the money, man. Why?” asked one individual from the crowd.
Glynn allegedly stole $100 from the cash register before shooting Bayron-Nieves.
“F**k y’all,” Glynn shouted to the crowd. Then, before the officers placed him in the vehicle, Glynn shouted, “America is going to burn!”
Glynn was charged with murder, criminal use of a firearm, criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of robbery. He reportedly had seven prior arrests in New York.
Newly sworn in mayor Eric Adams praised arresting authorities who “understood that Kristal was more than just a number.” “They acted professionally and brought this killer to justice,” Adams said.
Authorities caught Glynn matching a belt worn from the crime video to a photo he posted on Instagram.

Adams has made New York’s rising crime rate a focal point of his campaign. “I’m so focused on keeping 19-year-old girls from getting shot at Burger King,” Adams said at an event in Queens.
