Breitbart News reports that a local Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapter funded the release of Quintez Brown, a BLM activist accused of attempting to assassinate Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenburg. Bail had been set at $100,000.
Brown allegedly walked into Greenburg’s office and fired shots at the candidate and four others. One of the shots struck Greenburg’s clothing, but otherwise no one was injured. Brown faces four counts of wanton endangerment.
“BLM Louisville organizer and co-founder of the Louisville Community Bail Fund Chanelle Helm said the organization wanted to keep Brown somewhere safe as he awaits trial,” an ABC affiliate reported.
Brown’s Twitter profile bio reads: ‘We have one scientific and correct solution, Pan-Africanism: the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism.’ This is the kind of racial supremacist that Black Lives Matter wants to keep “safe.”
“They are going to be responsible for what he may or may not do to anybody,” Louisville Metro Council President David James told reporters. “It’s unfortunate Mr. Brown has been bailed out of jail, due to his propensity to violence. I think it’s irresponsible and I hope those who contributed to posting this bond are prepared to be held accountable if Mr. Brown injures someone while out.”
