Wounded Police Officer Sues DeRay Mckeeson and Black Lives Matter for ‘Inciting Violence’

Via Billy

A Baton Rouge police officer, who was wounded during a spate of racial unrest, is suing Black Lives Matter and some of its leadership for inciting the violence that led to his injuries.

Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Nicholas Tullier isn’t named in the suit, according to the Associated Press, but a description of the plaintiff, in the first several paragraphs of the filing, seems to match Tuiller’s description.

Tuiller was seriously injured, and one of his colleagues was killed, when a gunman ambushed officers in East Baton Rouge in the summer of 2016. Authorities later said that the gunman—a black military veteran—was lying in wait for law enforcement, and acted in retaliation for several police shootings of black men that took place earlier in the year.

  1. While McKesson's conduct, outlook and beliefs are to normal America reprehensible the level of evidence required to hold him accountable for this crime is quite rightly extremely high. It is unlikely that in an honest courtroom before a judge who truly understands the Constitution, the First Amendment and the law that this lawsuit will go far. Protection of speech exists not to protect ideas and words we all agree with or don't mind. It exists to protect ideas and words we despise. And as sick as the BLM ideology exists if we start savaging their rights it is OUR rights that will be attacked next.
