Black lives matter protests include black police officers who apparently don’t count.
Last year in Baton Rouge during a fatal shoot out with leaders of the black lives matter movement one black police officer was wounded and is now suing the organization. Interesting how black lives matter and blue lives matter don’t seem to include black police officers.
A Baton Rouge police officer who was wounded in a fatal shooting last July is suing five Black Lives Matter leaders for inciting violence.
Although the lawsuit does not mention the police officer’s name, CBS News reports the description matches East Baton Rouge Paris Sheriff’s Deputy Nicholas Tullier. Tullier was wounded on July 17, 2016, by 29-year-old Gavin Eugene Long, a black veteran who was shot dead after killing three other cops.
This was part of a protest two weeks after Alton Sterling, a black man, was shot by police in Baton Rouge.
Long reportedly posted anti-police videos to YouTube regularly before shooting the officers and left a note behind saying his intention was to harm “bad cops as well as good cops in hopes that the good cops (which are the majority) will be able to stand together and enact justice and punishment against bad cops.”
