A black Dallas Police sergeant is suing Georgie Soros, the Black Lives Matter movement, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton for inciting a “race war.” He’s seeking half a billion dollars in damages!
More from the Blaze:
Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, a black 17-year-veteran of the Dallas police force, filed the suit in a Dallas federal court Friday. According to the Dallas Morning News, the suit seeks more than $500 million in damages.
In addition to the Black Lives Matter movement and Obama, the lawsuit also lists Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, George Soros, the New Black Panther Party and even 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 66-page suit reads, according to the Morning News.
This is a really interesting lawsuit because it would set a precedent for suing on behalf of police officers. On the other hand it seems like it might infringe on the free speech rights of those people, no matter how deplorable. On the other hand, there is actual proof that George Soros has given money that has been funneled to “Black Lives Matter” protests.
I doubt the lawsuit will go very far, but it’ll be fascinating to see if it does.
