East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Nick Tullier was critically injured in a vicious ambush that left three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers d-ad. He has filed a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter and five of its most prominent activists, including DeRay Mckesson. The lawsuit was not for money but to get some form of justice here. Black Lives Matter has ginned up cop-hatred for years, inciting violence against officers that at times allegedly result in their deaths or grievous injury as in this case.
The lawsuit charged that the activists’ criticism of law enforcement after a white Baton Rouge police officer fatally shot Alton Sterling, a 37-year-old black man, resulted in 29-year-old Gavin Long’s July 17, 2016, attack on police officers outside a convenience store and car wash near Baton Rouge police headquarters. Unfortunately for Long, who was a black military veteran from Kansas City, Missouri and deeply disturbed, there were police officers there that didn’t hesitate to take him out permanently. He was fatally shot at the scene.
Now, an Obama-appointed judge, U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson of Baton Rouge, ruled in favor of Black Lives Matter and dismissed Tullier’s suit for failure to state a plausible claim for relief. A federal appeals court has since ruled that the Baton Rouge judge correctly dismissed a lawsuit filed by Tullier. In effect, negating the premise that the national Black Lives Matter protest movement was responsible for the incident and his injuries during the deadly ambush two years ago. That is not justice… it’s social justice from the bench.
A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans affirmed the judge’s decision in a one-paragraph ruling late Wednesday. “After consideration of the complaint, district court opinion, briefs, and applicable law in this matter, we conclude that no reversible error occurred,” the panel said in an unsigned order.
I am not surprised this particular judge ruled this way or that an equally liberal appeals court backed him up. It is a travesty of justice and this liberal judge just gave a free pass to Black Lives Matter to hunt down, ambush and k-ll police officers by implementing such a verdict in my opinion. Tullier’s life was destroyed by the attack. How many other officers have to fall before we label Black Lives Matter as a domestic terror group that kills cops?
Liberals are rejoicing over this verdict as though it lets Black Lives Matter off the hook for their violent hatred towards police officers. Donna Grodner is Tullier’s attorney. She won’t comment on their next move but she did note that the appellate court panel’s ruling was unanimous, and she said asking the U.S. Supreme Court to consider a case is an extremely expensive proposition. That does not sound good for Tullier.
DeRay Mckesson has been in a number of incidents involving Black Lives Matter and violence against police officers. He was arrested during the protest that followed Alton Sterling’s shooting but he wasn’t charged by prosecutors. Time and again, despite his hateful rhetoric, McKesson has been allowed to walk. Dead and injured police officers are afforded no such leniency. He made sure to thank the appeals court for their ruling against Tullier. “This lawsuit was an attempt to silence me for speaking the truth and I will never be too afraid, to tell the truth,” he said. It’s not him ‘speaking’ that worries Americans, it’s his hatred of police and Black Lives Matter’s violence against them that scares us to death.
Tullier, who was identified in the suit as John Doe Smith for obvious reasons, but whose injuries were described in detail, alleged in the lawsuit that the Black Lives Matter movement and its leaders are liable for his injuries. I certainly agree with that but a liberal legal system didn’t. The lawsuit accused Black Lives Matter activists of negligence and it also claimed that they were responsible for Long’s deadly attack because they “knew or should have known that violently mentally disturbed persons would be aroused by their call to violence and retribution to police for the deaths of black men.” I find that statement unassailable in its logic and truth.
It is interesting to note that after Long’s ambush attack McKesson did condemn it within hours. He said the Black Lives Matter movement began as a call to end violence and remains so. Of course, in my humble opinion that is simply hogwash. He denounced Long because of the blowback that was surely heading towards Black Lives Matter over the incident. And as far as I have seen, Black Lives Matter has never called for an end to violence. In fact, it has been just the opposite of that.
Protesters in a Black Lives Matter march held outside the Minnesota State Fair in August of 2015 were captured on video yelling “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” a statement that some law enforcement members viewed as targeting police officers. And it did. Does that sound non-violent to you? “I don’t think chanting or singing what’s basically promoting killing police officers is peaceful,” St. Paul Police Federation President Dave Titus said. I absolutely agree.
The death of Sterling in 2016 spurred protests in Baton Rouge and across the country. Most of those were led by Black Lives Matter activists. The violence followed in the wake of those protests.
Gavin Eugene Long, who killed three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers and wounded three others, left a suicide note before he went on his rampage.
From The Advocate:
“…unfortunately, I see my actions as a necessary evil that I DO NOT wish to partake in, nor do I enjoy partaking in, But must partake in, in order to create substantial change within America’s police force and judicial system,” part of the note read.
“…I must bring the same destruction that bad cops continue to inflict upon my people, upon bad cops as well as good cops in hopes that the good cops (which are the majority) will be able to stand together to enact justice (and) punishment against bad cops (because) right now the police force (and) current judicial system is not doing so.
“…A sacrifice for my people and a sacrifice for the people.”
Long’s ambush killed East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Brad Garafola and Baton Rouge police officers Montrell Jackson and Matthew Gerald. The attack left Tullier and two other officers severely injured. Tullier was shot in the head, stomach, and shoulder. It almost cost him his life. He is still receiving treatment to this day for those injuries.
From Irish Angel:
“UPDATE ON DEPUTY NICK TULLIER:
NEED YOUR PRAYERS EVERYONE
“Last week, Nick went back to the hospital after his oxygen levels turned up a little lower than normal. Then last Tuesday, Nick had a seizure, the first one since July 1st. Add to the mix coughing and Nick has been moved into the ICU now. His fever did go up to 104, but it returned to normal. Over the weekend however, the fever has been up and down. Nick has been on and off a ventilator, as needed. X-rays showed his lungs were starting to clear. That was Friday. Over the weekend though, they clouded back up. Today, Nick remains in ICU and not sure on how long he will be there. He’s continuing to have problems with his lungs due to recurring pneumonia. Doctors continue treatment but the family asks one things you all can do, say a prayer for Nick…please! Nick Tullier Strong”
Grodner also represents an unnamed Baton Rouge police officer who claimed in a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter and Mckesson that he was hit in the face by a chunk of concrete thrown during a protest in Baton Rouge after the Sterling shooting. Judge Brian Jackson also threw out that suit as well, saying Black Lives Matter is a social movement and therefore can’t be sued. That’s like calling ISIS a social movement – just my two cents. I detect a definite liberal trend from this judge. The officer’s appeal is pending at the 5th Circuit, Grodner said. Yet another judge who should be removed from the bench for political bias in my viewpoint. Just shameful.

Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!
An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.
Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:
An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.
Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.
“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.
Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.
“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”
“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.
“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”
Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.
Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
Heavily Armed Aliens Just Showed Up And Are Caught On Camera – This Is Just The Beginning
Jim Chilton is a fifth-generation rancher in Arizona that finds himself on the front lines of the battle of border security and illegal immigration. He and his wife, Sue live it daily.
The 79-year-old owns and tends a 50,000-acre ranch situated on the U.S.-Mexico border and his property has become a hotspot for illegal aliens crossing into the country. Unlike the heavily fortified border fence in Arizona, the only barriers separating the Chilton ranch from the Mexican border are four strands of rusty barbed wire strung along steel posts.
While tending his cattle, Chilton states he packs no less than two guns and at least 5 gallons of water. The pistol and rifle are to help him ward off the drug smugglers, mules, and human traffickers, or coyotes as they are also known, as they continuously breach the border through his land.
The water is for thirsty border crossers lured by the promise of American jobs and a better life. Chilton states that it used to be that border crossers were simply part of the normal rhythm of everyday life on their ranch. People would come and go freely between the Mexican state of Sonora and Arizona to and from work.
Chilton states: “You’d feed them and give them water and directions.”
The rancher remarked that he has noticed a recent uptick in the number of individuals attempting to use his ranch to enter the country illegally for nefarious means as well. It was not always that way he says.
The early 2000s saw a marked shift as traffic increased significantly in overwhelming numbers, both for the region itself and for its ranchers. Approximately two years ago the migrant traffic slowed to a near halt, and a massive increase in drug smugglers and human traffickers began to flood across the border onto the Chilton ranch.
Now Sue states they are much more guarded about offering any assistance, stating: “At this point, I’m not opening the door except in the rarest of cases.” The danger is simply too great.
As the national debate rages hot over border security and illegal immigration, the Chiltons are living the reality of it. As a result, they have developed a bit more of a nuanced view, attempting to balance their desire for security and protecting America’s borders with the reality of desperate people – men, women, and children alike – wandering across their land starving and parched from the unforgiving desert sun.
Chilton says he does not understand why building a wall to fortify the border is even a question.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Chilton states that:
“Although he respects the Border Patrol agents in the region, he said, he doesn’t understand why they won’t fortify and build a substantial border fence along the Arivaca region, including the five miles of international boundary alongside his ranch.
“It’s inhumane, he said, to allow border crossers to walk in easily through the border, putting their lives at risk from cold nights and hot days. Many are apprehended farther inland anyway.
“The border should be secured at the border,” he said.”
“The couple lament a recently shuttered Border Patrol outpost, the agency’s only significant presence in that area. The outpost, which operated near the ranch, was closed because of budget cuts.
“The couple have even offered to lease 20 acres of their land — about 500 yards from the border — to Border Patrol officials for $1 a year for an outpost. They said the government had not taken them up on the offer.”
The couple states they believe in some sort of guest worker program similar to the federal program previously in place in the 1940s when temporary Mexican laborers were legally allowed to work in the United States. There were no cartels to pay. No human traffickers. No dying in the desert.
At least two neighboring ranchers have chosen to leave rather than continue to fight in the last few years because of just how dangerous the border security situation has gotten. However, the Chiltons state they intend to stay on their land, though it has proven very costly for them to do so.
The cost of maintaining water lines, as well as the international fence to repair it from all the slashing and trampling it undergoes, costs them thousands of dollars in repairs.
Sue states: “We have to maintain the fence or the cattle would all go to Mexico, y no habla español.”
“She gazed out at the trails on the other side of the measly fence, which stretches 15 miles east until it hooks up with an actual border wall in Nogales. She pointed out a network of trails that scar a hill on the Mexican side. It zigzags, leading toward the international fence on the Chilton’s ranch,” reports the LA Times.
“It’s almost as though we have ceded a swath of this United States of America… It has been ceded to operational control of the cartels,” she said.”
