Wounded Louisiana Police Officer Sues Black Lives Matter

By  | 

A wounded Baton Rouge police officer has filed a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter movement, including several of its leaders, stemming from allegations that the group’s anti-police message has inspired lone gunmen to try to assassinate police officers.

The plaintive in the case is unnamed, but according to documents submitted to the court, is believed to have been an officer who was wounded in the attack on police officers in Baton Rouge on July 17th of 2016.

That attack was carried out by a Missouri man named Gavin Long who was armed with a semi-automatic rifle.

Prior to the shooting, Long had posted several social media posts, ranting against the “oppression” that was being directed at the black community from a racist justice system.

Long’s messages seemed to be a direct echo of the narrative that was being pushed by Black Lives Matter and Black Lives Matter leaders.

Long reportedly opened fire on officers outside of a convenience store, killing three and wounding others.

The lawsuit identifies leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement who were in the city at the time of the shooting “for the purpose of demonstrating, protesting and rioting, as well as to incite others to violence against police and other law enforcement officers.”

During the Obama-era, Black Lives Matter was given a sense of legitimacy when politicians, including Barack Obama himself, had taken several opportunities to claim that racism still existed within the justice system to score political points.

For example, after the Cambridge Police Department stopped an African-American suspect who was breaking into a house, that was later discovered to be his own, Obama immediately announced that the cops had acted, “Stupidly.”

When Trayvon Martin was shot after physically attacking a community watchmen, Barack Obama came forward and said that if he had a son, he would, “Look like Trayvon.”

After the shooting of the “gentle giant,” Michael Brown, Barack Obama sent Attorney General Eric Holder to conduct a second investigation after a grand jury determined that Officer Darren Wilson had not been guilty of any wrongdoing.

Even when Arizona announced that it would be taking measures to enforce the immigration laws that the Obama administration was seemingly ignoring, Barack Obama made the statement that the police would stop people as they were going out for ice-cream to demand to see ‘their papers.’

“But now suddenly if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to be harassed, that’s something that could potentially happen.”

Even at the funeral of five slain Dallas police officers, who were killed by a black supremacist who specifically targeted white officers, Obama used the opportunity to bring up a long history of racism in the United States:

“…While some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination’s stain. Although most of us do our best to guard against it and teach our children better, none of us is entirely innocent.

No institution is entirely immune, and that includes our police departments. We know this.”

With Barack Obama in the White House, Black Lives Matter was given free reign to operate in the United States with their anti-police message seemingly being condoned according to the messages coming out of the Obama administration.

However, Black Lives Matter may be finding their chickens coming home to roost after their anti-cop messages have actually led to people getting hurt and, in some cases, killed.
