The police officer who was badly wounded on July 17, 2016, during the ambush and execution of three Baton Rouge officer, filed a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter (BLM) and 5 of its leaders on Friday. The officer urges that Black Lives Matter and its leaders “not only, incited the violence against police in retaliation for the death of black men shot by police, but also did nothing to dissuade the ongoing violence and injury to police.”
“In fact, they justified the violence as necessary to the movement and war,” he stated.

The plaintiff officer is recognized as “Officer John Doe Smith,” a “duly commissioned officer performing in the line of duty in East Baton Rouge Parrish.” The complaint filed in U.S. District Court Middle District of Louisiana pleads that on July 17, 2016, he was working as a police officer “when he was shot by a person violently protesting against police, and which violence was caused or contributed to by the leaders of and by ‘Black Lives Matter’ a militant anti-police organization.”

The lawsuit was filed simply because the nation remembered the 5 officers killed and wounded in Dallas on July 7 last year and grieved the execution homicide of NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia. The 48-year-old mother of three was shot in the face this previous week as she sat in her police car.

The execution of 5 officers and the wounding of six others in Texas last July happened as a Black Lives Matter protest concluded. The Dallas shootings happened just one day after Philando Castile of St. Paul, Minnesota, was shot by an officer and the aftermath was live narrated and streamed by his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds. The video went viral on Social Media.

On July 17, 2016, Breitbart News reported the execution of the three Baton Rouge cops, and the wounding of three others close to the Baton Rouge Police Division headquarters on that Sunday morning. Breitbart Texas reported that the killer, Gavin Long of Kansas City, Missouri, was in Houston and Dallas before his assault. As reported by Jerome Hudson for Breitbart Information, “Long left behind a lengthy, twisted history of encouraging violence and anti-American sentiments on social media.” Long was very active on Twitter and Instagram. He also called the Dallas police sniper, Micah X. Johnson “one of us.”

The federal complaint charges that plaintiff “Deray McKesson” is a leader of the national unincorporated organization that is known as ‘Black Lives Matter’ and other derivative and/or related organizations.” Also in 2016 McKesson and the opposite defendants, Johnetta “Nettie” Elzie, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, Black Lives Matter, Black Lives Community, Inc., and #BlackLivesMatter: planned the Summer of Chaos, Weekend of Rage, and used the web and social media to prepare, stage and orchestrate protests and to attend and/or lead a number of protests and violence that accompanied the protests together with, amongst many others, these in Ferguson, Missouri; Baltimore, Maryland; McKinney, Texas; Dallas, Texas; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The Baton Rouge protests, largely, took place outside the Baton Rouge Police Division located in front of the former Woman’s Hospital on Airline Highway. This is also the place where this shooting took place.

“Black Lives Matter” lists its principal workplace in California and has been shaped as a partnership, the federal lawsuit states. Black Lives Matter Community, Inc., is a Delaware Company. It additional pleads that “Black Lives Matter” is a nationwide unincorporated affiliation which states on its website donation cost receipt:

#BlackLivesMatter is a name to motion and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society. It’s an affirmation of Black people’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of lethal oppression.

“Black Lives Matter and its related associations/organizations have been created by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi, in addition to, Deray McKesson and Johnetta Elsie, all of who’re leaders.” The complaint says that Netta Elzie and DeRay McKesson have been in Baton Rouge through the protests.

The overall allegations of the federal pleading start with. “At the very least eleven officers have been shot dead and at least 9 extra wounded.”
