It’s undeniable that the rhetoric of Black Lives Matter incites violence against those in law enforcement. While those in the movement love to claim they’re “anti-police brutality” not “anti-police,” their protests say otherwise.
Whether it be their chants of “What do we want? Dead cops!” or “Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon!,” their message is clear. BLM Toronto went as far as blocking a gay pride parade due to the inclusion of a police-themed float.
Will the legal system view their calls to violence as illegal? That’s what one lawsuit is going to find out!
A black Dallas Police sergeant filed a lawsuit Friday against Black Lives Matter and their supporters, accusing them of inciting violence against cops.
Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, a police officer of 17 years, filed the amended complaint in a federal court, reports the Dallas News.
The lawsuit names the Black Lives Matter movement, Rev. Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, George Soros, President Barack Obama, and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as defendants.
“Defendants incite people to violence and cause violence by telling those people that they are under attack. Defendants are encouraging disaffected blacks, Black Muslims, Muslims and others allied with them including certain whites to ignore, disrespect, and assault law enforcement officials, and commit violence and lethal force,” the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit alleges that Obama’s “War On Police” has both endangered law enforcement officers and hurt the communities they are supposed to protect. His comments that current shootings against blacks “are not isolated incidents” incites people to believe that blacks are being killed intentionally, the lawsuit states.
The complaint seeks $500 million to $1.5 billion in damages.
