A black Dallas cop sued Black Lives Matter on behalf of 'Christians, Jews and Caucasians'

0

A Dallas police officer has sued the Black Lives Matter organization, as well as 16 other groups and individuals, on behalf of "Jews, Christians and Caucasians." 

Sgt. Demetrick Pennie's suit claims the defendants (which include Hillary Clinton, President Obama and Rev. Al Sharpton) incited violence against officers "of all races and ethnicities." It seeks $500 million in damages, The Washington Post reports.

Pennie is represented by conservative lawyer Larry Klayman.

Pivot for Pennie

The suit will likely not be taken seriously by judges, largely since Pennie doesn't show any specific harm. But its a significant pivot for Pennie, who earlier was lauded for reaching out to Cleveland Browns player Isaiah Crowell. 

In July, Crowell posted a graphic photo depicting a cop's throat being slit after the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.  Pennie invited Crowell to the funeral of one of the officers killed in Dallas that same week, and The Dallas Morning News praised the reconciliation.

Pennie posted a response to the lawsuit on Facebook.

Some Twitter users praised Pennie's actions.

A "deplorable" gives  YUGE thanks.

A Trump fan (there's a trend here) voices her support.

What do you think of Pennie's lawsuit?
