The father of slain Dallas police officer, Patrick Zamarripa, is suing Black Lives Matter and other groups for allegedly “inciting a war on police” that led to the death of his son. According to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, Enrique Zamarripa filed a 43-page lawsuit Monday (Nov. 7) in U.S. District Court seeking a whopping $550 million in damages.
“While Defendant Black Lives Matter claims to combat anti-black racism, the movement has in fact incited and committed further violence, severe bodily injury and death against police officers of all races and ethnicities, Jews, and Caucasians. Defendant Black Lives Matter is in fact a violent and revolutionary criminal gang.”
Officer Zamarripa served three tours in Iraq before joining the police department in Dallas, Texas. The 32-year-old cop was on bike patrol the evening of July 7 when hundreds protested due to the recent killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. Sniper Micah Johnson opened fire in the crowd and killed five officers, four from the Dallas Police Department where Zamarripa worked, and one from the DART Police department.
