Feds Bust Black Lives Matter Organizer for Blackmailing Local Businesses

Recommended Posts

"Federal prosecutors brought extortion charges Friday against the man whose arrest this week sparked violence and destruction in the capital city.

U.S. Attorney Scott Blader filed the charges against Devonere Johnson, alleging he threatened to bash windows of downtown businesses unless employees gave him money. 

Blader also alleges Johnson, 28, threatened to "shut down and destroy" another business unless Johnson and his friends were provided free food and drinks. 

In one restaurant, Johnson allegedly brought a boombox indoors and refused to turn it down. When the owner told Johnson he donated money to a group supporting the Black Lives Matter campaign, Johnson asked what he had done "locally."

Ultimately, Johnson allegedly told the owner "give me money or we'll break windows," according to the criminal complaint. 

Johnson entered another bar and allegedly asked for free food and drinks or else the bar would be "marked," according to the complaint.

"You don't want 600 people to come here and destroy your business and burn it down. The cops are on our side," according to the complaint, which included interviews with the bar owner about what Johnson allegedly said. "You notice that when you call them, nothing happens to us.""

600 Coming to smash windows and burn buildings?  That’s not a protest. That’s terrorism. 
 

Sounds like a target rich environment.

That's what you get for dealing with the devil.

Interesting point.  Apparently if the cops aren't on their side, their civilian overlords certainly are.

yeah, when i was growing up there were a lot of guys who wouldn't wanna see anything bad happen to your business, like if these pickles got smashed or your head got busted or a fire or something, so they asked for weekly donations too.
