A black Dallas Police sergeant filed a lawsuit Friday against Black Lives Matter and their supporters, accusing them of inciting violence against cops.
Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, a police officer of 17 years, filed the amended complaint in a federal court, reports the Dallas News.
The lawsuit names the Black Lives Matter movement, Rev. Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, George Soros, President Barack Obama, and 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 lawsuit states.
The lawsuit alleges that Obama’s “War On Police” has both endangered law enforcement officers and hurt the communities they are supposed to protect. His comments that current shootings against blacks “are not isolated incidents” incites people to believe that blacks are being killed intentionally, the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit also accuses Clinton of using her position to cause more violence against police officers. When Clinton repeats the “violent and hateful dogmas guiding her co-Defendants,” it leads to “an explosion of violence” against law enforcement officers, the lawsuit states.
Larry Klayman, founder of the organization Freedom Watch, is representing Pennie.
“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,” Klayman said in a press release.
The complaint seeks $500 million to $1.5 billion in damages.
