A Dallas police sergeant has filed a federal lawsuit against several high profile Black Lives Matter activists, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and several others for inciting a race war.
Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, a black 17 year police veteran and president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, filed documents Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, seeking between $500 million and $1.5 billion.
The defendants in the suit include: Hillary Clinton, President Barrack Obama, Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network, Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, George Soros, Malik Zulu Shabazz and the New Black Panther Party, and Attorney General Eric Holder.
The documents were filed because the individuals named above encouraged their supporters 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 including but not limited to Jews, Christians and Caucasians.”
Col. Derek Harvey, a former US army colonel and senior intelligence executive for the Defense Intelligence Agency, is also noted in the suit.
“Black Lives Matter defendants were directly and proximately responsible for the Dallas Police Shootings, as well as the overall increase in violence against police officers and law enforcement,” Harvey said.
Pennie is being represented by the founder of the Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, attorney Larry Klayman.
“Sergeant Pennie and I feel duty-bound to put ourselves forward to seek an end to the incitement of violence against law enforcement which has already resulted in the death of five police officers in Dallas and the wounding of seven more, just in Texas alone,” Mr. Klayman said in a statement. “Other assaults and deaths have occurred elsewhere. While the case was filed in Texas, it will create precedent around the nation that law enforcement, which ironically protects the very persons who are alleged to have incited this violence, should be respected. The defendants, if not legally reined in, are allegedly responsible, along with others, for igniting a race war that will ultimately totally destroy the freedoms that our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us.”
