Dallas Cop Sues Black Lives Matter Leaders

     DALLAS (CN) – A Dallas police officer sued leaders and alleged supporters of Black Lives Matter, blaming them for inciting violence towards police officers that resulted in the deaths of five of his fellow officers in a July sniper attack.
     Sgt. Demetrick Pennie filed his amended complaint and proposed class action in federal court on Friday, accusing Black Lives Matters and seven of its leaders of civil rights violations, conspiracy, assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
     He also sued President Barack Obama, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakahn, Rev. Al Sharpton, National Action Network, the New Black Panthers Party and billionaire financier George Soros.
     Pennie is a 17-year veteran of the force and currently the president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.
     He says the defendants “repeatedly incited their supporters and others to engage in threats of and attacks to cause serious bodily injury or death” towards police officers of all races and ethnicities, including Jews, Christians and whites.
     “Thus, defendants, each and every one of them, jointly and severally, conspiring and/or acting in concert either expressly or otherwise, are inciting and causing serious bodily injury or death to police officers and other law enforcement persons of all races and ethnicities, Jews, and Caucasian,” the 66-page complaint states.
     Pennie says Obama stated “anti-police rhetoric” after the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, that he allegedly “saw this as another opportunity to stir up major racial tensions and hatred for police officers.”
     Pennie accused Soros of giving “$650,000 directly in furtherance of the Black Lives Matter movement’s calls to violence and death.”
     “Defendant Soros has given at least $33 million in one year to support various groups, such as Black Lives Matters, who are serving to further the on-going racial war by inciting racial violence against police officers and other law enforcement persons of all races and ethnicities including but not limited to Jews, Christians and Caucasians,” the complaint states.
     “Defendants Soros has gone so far as to pay over 80 individuals and organizations to “protest” during the civil unrest that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri, in furtherance of the violent and hateful incitements to violence perpetrated by his co-defendants.”
     Pennie accused Farrakahn of asking black members of the military last year “to desert and engage in mutiny and violent insurrection” against their country.
     “During the speech, Farrakhan held up the deaths of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner as evidence that there is inequality in the treatment of black citizens, who must therefore wage war against and severely harm and kill police officers and other law enforcement,” the complaint states. “Then Farrakhan reinforced this call for violence by sharing a link to the video of his speech, which he had posted on Facebook, through his official Twitter account, with the explanation, ‘Why I’m calling on all black soldiers in the U.S. Armed Forces to come home, unite & fight for our own lives.'”
     Pennie accused Sharpton of calling for the outlawing of local police departments last year through civil rights laws and creating a nationalized police force.
     “Defendant Sharpton lead incendiary and inflammatory rallies in Ferguson, Missouri, early on in the developing violence and incited the looting, arson, destruction of property, assaults on police, threatening mobs, and violence,” the complaint states. “In one of Defendant Sharpton’s rallies that occurred on December 15, 2014 in New York City, marchers were chanting death threats to the police: ‘What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it! Now!’ The protesters event assaulted two NYPD officers and blocked traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge.”
     Pennie is seeking compensatory, actual and punitive damages in excess of $500 million.
     He is represented by Larry Klayman with the FreedomWatch lobbying group in Washington, D.C.
     “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,” Klayman told Breitbart.
