Something seems amiss. The Battle of Baton Rouge — a campaign in the war between law enforcement and UBM (“unarmed” black men) — was “won” by the side that inspired the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Couched in news terms, on July 17 a Nation of Islam member set an ambush for Baton Rouge’s finest, then gunned down as many as he could in cold blood, ultimately killing three officers.

So why is BLM noisemaker DeRay McKesson suing the city rather than celebrating the “victory”? The answer is that the racial grievance crowd never forgets. Even though cowardly cop killer Gavin Eugene Long “evened the score” for the shooting death of Alton Sterling by murdering three total strangers, McKesson is still miffed over being arresting for illegally blocking a busy highway during a protest.

NBC News reports:

McKesson filed a class action lawsuit Thursday against the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for alleged excessive use of force by police after he and more than 100 other protesters were arrested for “simple obstruction of highway commerce” last month.

McKesson’s arrest on July 9 was captured on a live-stream on Periscope after he had been protesting the police shooting death of Alton Sterling.

McKesson was released from the East Baton Rouge Parish jail the next day, and the obstruction charges against McKesson and the other 100 protesters were later dropped.

DeRay McKesson enjoys picking fights with police departments and then complaining when he gets arrested. He’s a typical race baiter, paid agitator, and professional victim.

Here’s some free advice to McKesson: if you don’t want to go to jail, don’t stand in the middle of a highway and illegally block traffic.

See? Wasn’t that easy?
