Larry Klayman the founder of Judicial Watch explains, “Clearly, the accusation that shootings ‘are not an isolated incident’ is an incitement [words that promote unlawful behavior] claiming that there is a knowing, intentional related and connected conspiracy — ‘not isolated incidents’ — to intentionally murder Black people.”
According to Western Journalism Larry Klayman, the head of Freedom Watch and founder of Judicial Watch, filed a class action lawsuit on Monday in federal district court in Dallas against President Obama and others for inciting violence, leading to the killings of law enforcement officers.
In his complaint, Klayman named not only Barack Obama but Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, former Attorney General Eric Holder and the Rev. Al Sharpton, among a total of nine defendants.
Regarding Obama, Klayman points to several actions and statements including his comments from Warsaw, Poland, early last Thursday morning following the deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile near St. Paul, Minn., during arrests.
“What’s clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents,” the president said. “They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.”
Klayman explains, “Clearly, the accusation that shootings ‘are not an isolated incident’ is an incitement [words that promote unlawful behavior] claiming that there is a knowing, intentional related and connected conspiracy — ‘not isolated incidents’ — to intentionally murder Black people.”
He contends, “Thus, Defendant Obama directly incited early in the day the murders that occurred much later that same day in Dallas, Texas.” Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, killed five police officers and injured eight others.
“The Defendants incite imminent violence by hiding the reality that police officers usually respond to calls for help from civilians who are the victims of crime, often minority victims, and the police take the 911 calls for help as they come, regardless of race,” the former federal prosecutor continues.
“Instead the Defendants spread the false narrative that police are intentionally targeting lawbreakers or innocent people based on their race.”
KIayman notes that the Dallas killer made clear that what motivated him to act was anger against white people.
“He said he was upset about the recent police shootings,” Dallas Police Chief David Brown said during a Friday morning news conference. “The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
