Injured police officer sues Black Lives Matter for damages, DeRay McKesson named in suit

After years of hate speech and violent rhetoric, Black Lives Matter might have to pay.

A Baton Rouge police officer that was injured in a rampage last year, has filed a lawsuit against rabble-rouser DeRay McKesson and other Black Lives Matter activists for at least $75,000 in damages, Reuters reported.

The lawsuit was filed on Friday, the one-year anniversary of a shooting rampage in Dallas that took the lives of five police officers by a man bent on getting revenge for black men killed by the police.

More than a week after that attack, another man went on a similar rampage in Baton Rouge, claiming the lives of three officers.

The lawsuit by the unnamed officer states that 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.'”

McKesson has not responded to Reuters request for comment.
