Fiery ‘Starting a Race War’: Dallas PD Sgt. Suing 'Black Lives', Obama, Clinton, Sharpton
A Dallas police sergeant outraged at continued riotous activity and attacks on law enforcement officers filed a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter organization and a number of officials he said are culpable for an increase in anti-cop violence and unrest in the US.
“They are responsible for starting a race war in this country” Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, who is also black, told Elizabeth MacDonald on Risk and Reward.
A lot of people completely miss the point of Black Lives Matter movement. Their website talks about black liberation.
In addition to the group, he is suing at least five national or international figures he says bear some of the responsibility for supporting or “facilitating” Black Lives Matter activity.
The list includes President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, MSNBC host and activist Al Sharpton, Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
“They feel that if they have a president that is behind them” they feel emboldened to commit these acts, Pennie said.
“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, according to the paper.
The lawsuit alleges the defendants "have repeatedly incited their supporters and others to engage in threats of and attacks to cause serious bodily injury or death upon police officers and other law enforcement persons of all races and ethnicities."
The lawsuit was filed hours before two Texas police officers were injured in a shooting while responding to a suicide call.
Pennie, who heads the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, is joined in the lawsuit by attorney Larry Klayman.
He told MacDonald he has received numerous threats on his life since the filing.
