Cop Files Federal Lawsuit Against DeRay McKesson For Black Lives Matter Rally
An officer choosing to remain nameless is suing DeRay McKesson for organizing a BLM rally for the police shooting death of Alton Sterling, claiming he was severely injured by a riotous crowd which DeRay incited.
The anonymous cop says he and his fellow officers were first pelted by full bottles, looted from a Circle K — and when the water ran out, someone picked up a piece of concrete … or a rock … and chucked it. He says he was struck in the face and went down hard.
He says he lost teeth, and injured his jaw and brain. In the suit, he blames McKesson for inciting the violence. He points out tensions were already high because the Dallas PD ambush happened just 2 days earlier — and Alton Sterling had been shot by Baton Rouge cops on July 5.
He’s suing for his medical bills and damages.
SMH. Isn’t part of being a riot cop assuming these types of risks in the first place? And how can you blame someone who arranged a PEACEFUL protest for the reckless actions of a crowd — IF this is even what transpired??
