Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, a 17-year veteran of the force, is seeking between $500 million and $1.5 billion in the complaint filed in federal court. A black American, Pennie is seeking damages from the Black Lives Matter movement and its supporters for alleged incitement of race war. The lawsuit has been filed against Black Lives Matter; President Barack Obama; Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton; the Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network; Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and billionaire activist George Soros. Other defendants include Malik Zulu Shabazz and the New Black Panthers, and former Attorney General Eric Holder.
In the introduction, the court document states:
In this class action Amended Compliant, Plaintiffs Demetrick Pennie and Larry Klayman (collectively “Plaintiffs” unless individually named), and police officers and other law enforcement persons of all races and ethnicities including but not limited to Jews, Christians and Caucasians, sue Defendants Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam, Al Sharpton, National Action Network, Black Lives Matter, Rashad Turner, Opal Tometi, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, Johnetta Elzie, Deray McKesson, New Black Panthers Party, Malik Zulu Shabazz, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton (collectively “Defendants” unless individually named) in their individual and official capacities where applicable,...
"This is an Amended Complaint for damages and equitable relief arising out of the threats, severe bodily injury and/or deaths, future deaths, emotional harm, and imminent fears of death and/or serious bodily harm resulting from Defendants’ actions. 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 including but not limited to Jews, Christians and Caucasians. 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 Caucasians."
“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 lawsuit states in court filings. The lawsuit further alleges that the above 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."
Just hours before the lawsuit was filed in Dallas, two Texas police officers were injured in a shooting while responding to a suicide call. Pennie is represented by Larry Klayman, founder of the organization Freedom Watch. “The defendants, if not legally reined in, are allegedly responsible, along with others, for igniting a race war that will ultimately totally destroy the freedoms that our Founding Fathers bequeathed to us,” Klayman said in a press release. Klayman is a founder of Judicial Watch, another watchdog organization.
The 66-page federal filing alleges that the defendants “repeatedly incited their supporters and others to engage in threats and attacks” against police officers around the country, including the killings five Dallas area officers with nine others wounded at a Black Lives Matter gathering this year. The lawsuit identifies billionaire financier George Soros as “the financier of the BLM Defendants and similar organizations with the goal of inciting a race war” and for advocating violence against whites and Jews.
Defendants Obama and Clinton are blamed for alleged endorsement of tactics carried out by Black Lives Matter.
“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 said in a release.
