Black Lives Matter’s DeRay Mckesson Sues Jeanine Pirro And Fox News For Defamation
Watch Pirro slander Mckesson above from the September 29, 2017 Fox & Friends.
Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson is suing Fox News and host Jeanine Pirro over their bogus claim that he instigated violence against a police officer.
With the constant cascade of news, I never got to posting about Pirro’s outrageous attack on Mckesson on the September 29, 2017 Fox & Friends.
As the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple explained in an article that day, the matter began with a police officer’s lawsuit against Mckesson that claimed he had incited violence during a Black Lives Matter protest in Baton Rouge. The suit, which was also against the amorphous Black Lives Matter movement, was thrown out partly because there was no evidence Mckesson engaged in or incited violent behavior and partly because a federal judge found that Mckesson could not be held responsible for the behavior of other members of Black Lives Matter just because he was part of the movement.
Mckesson and other protesters also received $500-$1,000 each as the result of a $100,000 settlement in a separate lawsuit against the city of Baton Rouge. They had alleged that police used excessive force and violated the protesters’ civil rights.
