A police officer filed a federal lawsuit against leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement claiming they incited a deadly attack against law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge last year that left three officers dead, the Gateway Pundit reports.
It came on the first year anniversary of the attack, which is considered one of the deadliest against law enforcement in modern U.S. history.
Under the lawsuit, which was filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana, it named five Black Lives Matter movement leaders including DeRay McKesson as defendants and sought damages of at least $75,000.
Although the plaintiff was not identified in the lawsuit, its description seems to match Nicholas Tullier, who is the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s deputy.
Baton Rouge faced a wave of protests last year after a black man was gunned down by two police officers under dubious circumstances, sparking a national debate.
The gunman who killed the officers was identified as Gavin Long, a black man who was a member of an anti-government movement composed of African-Americans. He was shot dead at the scene during a shootout with the police.
