A Dallas police sergeant has filed a federal lawsuit against Black Lives Matter leaders, President Obama, George Soros and others for allegedly inciting racial violence against law enforcement.
Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation and a 17-year law enforcement veteran, filed the amended complaint in federal court Friday seeking between $500 million and $1.5 billion, the Dallas Morning News reported.
The defendants named in the class-action suit also included Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Eric Holder, Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, Al Sharpton and the National Action Network, Malik Zulu Shabazz and the New Black Panther Party.
The lawsuit said the defendants “stoked a race war” and “repeatedly incited their supporters and others to engage in threats and attacks” against police officers. The complaint singled out George Soros as “the financier of the BLM Defendants and similar organizations with the goal of inciting a race war and inciting and advocating deadly violence against law enforcement officers, Caucasians, and Jews,” Breitbart News reported.
Sgt. Pennie, who is black, is being represented by attorney Larry Klayman, the founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch.
