BLM uses Stolen Funds to Bail Out for Accused Assassin of Louisville Mayoral Candidate -ss-Featured

The man accused of trying to assassinate a Louisville, Kentucky, mayoral candidate is now free on a bond after a local Black Lives Matter chapter provided the funds for his release. A judge has set his bond at $100,000 as he was accused of shooting at the candidate and four other individuals.

Quintez Brown, a BLM activist himself, has been accused of attempting to assassinate Craig Greenburg, a Louisville mayoral candidate. Brown allegedly walked into the candidate’s office and fired shots at Greenburg and four other people, per a WHAS ABC11 report. One of the shots hit Greenburg’s clothing, but no one suffered injuries during the attack.

“BLM Louisville organizer and co-founder of the Louisville Community Bail Fund Chanelle Helm said the organization wanted to keep Brown somewhere safe as he awaits trial,” the report stated. The Louisville Community Bail Fund paid for Brown’s bond and he was released to home incarceration soon after.

David James, the Louisville Metro Council president, stated that the BLM-funded group shouldn’t have paid for Brown’s bail.

“They are going to be responsible for what he may or may not do to anybody,” James said to the local news outlet. According to the article, Brown is allegedly suffering mental health problems.

James also spoke to reporters from WLKY and said: “It’s unfortunate Mr. Brown has been bailed out of jail, due to his propensity to violence. I think it’s irresponsible and I hope those who contributed to posting this bond are prepared to be held accountable if Mr. Brown injures someone while out.”

Helm, meanwhile, was concerned for Brown’s safety. “We’re talking about jail, we’re talking about a system that has people sit in jail for years without seeing hearings and trials and play back and forth with their mental health,” she told WLKY.

Currently, Brown faces four counts of wanton endangerment, according to Police Department spokesperson Aaron Ellis, as reported by Vizaca.com.
