BLM has posted the $100,000 bail for an activist hailed by Obama who was charged with attempted murder after allegedly trying to assassinate a Jewish mayoral candidate.
Quintez Brown, 21, was accused of opening fire on Monday on Craig Greenberg, whose shirt was grazed by a bullet in his campaign headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. His pals claim he was suffering from a ‘mental health crisis’ at the time of the shooting, with his attorney Rob Eggert scolding those who suggested it was an anti-Semitic attack.
Eggerttold the Louisville Courier Journal – where Brown used to work as a columnist – ‘This is not a hate crime — it is a mental health case.’
He was named as a ‘rising face’ by Barack Obama’s foundation in 2019, and was one of just 22 participants chosen for the former president’s My Brother’s Keeper program, which is aimed at closing achievement gaps, and which saw Brown meet the former president.
The alleged attempted murderer still appears as a changemaker the Obama website bragging of his status as a role model for local boys.
DailyMail.com has contacted the foundation for further comment. Brown was also repeatedly hired by the BBC – the UK’s prestigious public broadcaster – as a spokesman on race matters in the US.
And Brown was even employed as a columnist at his local paper, the Louisville Courier Journal, where he posted regular diatribes against the police and gun ownership.
