(Reuters) - A Louisiana police officer cannot sue Black Lives Matter because it is a social movement, a U.S. judge ruled on Thursday, finding the campaign could not be held responsible for injuries he got at a protest.

The unidentified officer sued Black Lives Matter and an activist involved in a July 2016 protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where the officer was struck by a rock.

A known to be violent group has been let off by a judge and deemed, above the law of prosecution for the actions of its own members.

This ain't right. Most people know it. So what gives?
Why are they allowing this group, by law now I might add, the right not to be sued?

Violence used to mean punishment. Now we're being taught that if you do it in a large group with an official logo it's ok? We're not talking about war here. We're talking Civilians getting away with bad behaviour. This is not a color issue, but a moral one.

Thoughts?

Apparently BLM and Big Pharma are above the law.

You should be responsible for what you do in my antiquated opinion.

Can we sue pro-life organizations for the action of Robert Dear?

Can't let something like a little lawsuit get in the way of a good race war.

Which one did he belong to? I would think so.

“‘Black Lives Matter,’ as a social movement, cannot be sued, however, in a similar way that a person cannot plausibly sue other social movements such as the Civil Rights movement, the LGBT rights movement or the Tea Party movement,” Chief Judge Brian Jackson of a U.S District Court in Baton Rouge wrote in a 24-page ruling.



While the movement itself lacked the capacity to be sued, an associated entity could be held liable, Jackson said. But the judge found the officer had not made a sufficient case against such a group or an individual involved and dismissed the lawsuit.


Essentially, BLM isn't legitimate.

Any group that causes physical damage to another human being, or violence of any kind, and has a track record for creating these types of circumstances 'should' be punished.

So who will be punished? Who gets to pay? You do realize that there are many innocent people in BLM?

Something not making sense.

The "movement" takes in money.

Somebody must be keeping the books and filing tax returns right?

Black Lives Matter cashes in with $100 million from liberal foundations

You blame the individual, not the group.

The judge was right, in my opinion.


As much as I think the left are a group of violent Marxists bent on world domination, the individuals within who actually commit acts of violence are the ones who should be prosecuted.

Point to "Black Lives Matter."

When you accomplish that, prove "Black Lives Matter" is culpable for damages.

Individuals are responsible. Not "movements" or "social constructs."

I guess if the law doesn't apply to 'them' ... what you do to them won't be a prosecutable offense either.

Scales of Justice and all ... Yeah Right!!

That may wellbe true. But if you're going to toss a stone, expect a ripple effect from it.

Like, a little slack here and there until all responsibility is removed from said group. When BLM screams, they do it as a group. Not an individual thing.

I mean their names? You can say anything about them as individuals but proof is needed.

They're well known for flipping out on people.

They had a very peaceful march/protest where I live last year....dallas

It was the most peaceful march in history....except for the 5 murdered police officers...

But everyone repeat after me, “it was a peaceful protest”...
If you say it enough times it becomes true...

Sue them...meh...what have they ever done(other than mass murder)??

It’s not like the KKK ever got sued....
What’s that you say???
They were [rightfully] sued a gazillion times...

Yep, but BLM should be above such litigation because [insert liberal newspeak here]

What is different from this and blaming Islam for terrorist attacks?

I bet you would feel different if a KKK member had shot 9 police officers instead of a BLM member, but there's quite the double standard right now.
