On Saturday August 16, 2014, New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz led death chants against Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.
The mob chanted:
What do we want?
– Darren Wilson
How do we want him?
Today Malik Shabazz, a noted racist and Jew-hater, along with four associates from Black Lawyers for Justice, filed a $40 million lawsuit against the City of Ferguson and St. Louis County. They believe their rights were violated during the Ferguson protests and riots.
Five people filed a multi-million dollar federal lawsuit Thursday against the Ferguson and St. Louis County police departments.
The plaintiffs claim their rights were violated during protest marches in the weeks following the death of Michael Brown. A group called Black Lawyers for Justice, led by a man named Malik Shabazz and based in Washington D.C., filed the lawsuit at the Eagleton Federal Courthouse in downtown St. Louis.
According to the suit, police used excessive force, made false arrests, illegal search and seizures and violated their civil rights during protests in Ferguson.
The lawsuit seeks $40 million for the people.
Shabazz, whom the Southern Poverty Law Center calls a racist, black nationalist, was a familiar sight with his bullhorn at protests. Just last week, local pastors accused Shabazz of inciting violence.
Now the same group says they’ve come to an understanding with Shabazz; agreeing with his message, if not always his methods.
The New Black Panthers held several protest marches in Ferguson in August.
