Black Lives Matter under fire from all sides after posting bail for assassin who shot at mayoral candidate

The leftists in the media and in political office have legitimized the Black Lives Matter movement. However, this latest stunt may be the one thing to bring it all down.

A group affiliated with the Louisville, Kentucky chapter of BLM posted a $100,000 bond for Quintez Brown, a man who police say tried to kill a mayoral candidate, the Washington Examiner reported. Brown, 21, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges.

According to police, Brown allegedly ambushed Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenburg at his office Monday night. He shot at Greenberg, grazing his clothing and causing no further injuries to the candidate or others in the room.

Brown fled, but police picked him up minutes later, not far from the office location. By Wednesday, the Louisville Community Bail Fund had Brown, who was an editorial columnist and former intern at the Courier-Journal, out on bail using a cashier’s check.

The fund had previously made another controversial choice in 2020 when it posted $30,000 bail for double-shooting suspect Andrew Clayton. The judge would later revoke his bail after Clayton violated the terms by posting photos on social media of illegal drugs and money.

Greenberg said he was “very blessed” that the incident wasn’t as bad as it could have been. “The gunman stood in the doorway as he fired the shots, and one of my teammates was standing to the side of the door and was able to get the door slammed, and then he and other teammates that were closer to the door just threw tables and desks to barricade us in,” the candidate said in a news conference.

“I’m very fortunate to have a great team of brave people who responded in that way,” Greenberg added. “We are all very blessed. … It all happened so quick, but it’s a very surreal experience.”

BLM and its allies have somehow equated bailing out suspected criminals with fighting racism. However, it’s irresponsible to purposely put these people back on the streets — and use donor money to do it — regardless of the color of their skin.
