Dallas Police Sergeant Demetrick Pennie has launched a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter, President Obama, Rev Al Sharpton, Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan, activist George Soros and Hillary Clinton seeking between $500M and $1.5B, alleging this group is inciting a race war.  Pennie who is black states in his claim the defendants “have repeatedly incited their supporters and others to engage in threats of and attacks to cause serious bodily injury or death upon police officers and other law enforcement persons of all races and ethnicities”.

I think it is a great thing Pennie is doing, my only question is, why does it take an individual Sergeant to start the lawsuits against BLM. Where are all the Police Associations/Unions and Police Command groups? His claim is bang on, the suit should involve every police officer in North America from the Police Chiefs down to the newest recruit. Sometimes the only avenue is to sue. With some 900,000 police officers in USA and 75,000 in Canada all feeling the negativity and threat from BLM why are there not more lawsuits? A million police officers can put together the best team of lawyers ever and take on BLM.

Every police officer I speak to on both sides of the border are concerned about BLM. They are fed up with BLM and their threats, they are fed up with their chants of “WHAT DO WE WANT? –DEAD COPS! WHEN DO WE WANT IT? — NOW!” These threatening chants are directed at every police officer and these threats have to stop. Every police officer should turn to the courts for help but first thank Dallas Police Sergeant D. Pennie for having the guts to start the process.
