A Dallas police sergeant has filed a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter and President Barack Obama, alleging that they and others are “igniting a race war.”
Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, a black 17-year-veteran of the Dallas police force, filed the suit in a Dallas federal court Friday. According to the Dallas Morning News, the suit seeks more than $500 million in damages.
In addition to the Black Lives Matter movement and Obama, the lawsuit also lists Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, George Soros, the New Black Panther Party and even 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 66-page suit reads, according to the Morning News.
