WATCH: BLM Posts $100,000 Bond For Activist Who Tried To Assassinate Louisville Mayoral Candidate

Rachel Droze, WHAS11 News’ reporter shows how the Louisville Chapter of Black Lives Matter (BLM), posted a $100,000 bond to secure the release of a local activist who was accused of trying assassination on Craig Greenberg.

Quintez Brown, a BLM activist, was charged with attempted murder of Greenberg (a Democrat) on Monday.

Brown, once featured by the Obama Foundation as a “rising face” and a featured guest in an MSNBC segment about students demanding stricter gun laws, was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment following the shooting.

Nobody was injured in the incident, though a bullet reportedly grazed Greenberg’s shirt. Brown has pleaded guilty to all charges.

The Louisville BLM chapter told Droze they were “heading to the bank to get a cashier’s check to post Quintez Brown’s bail.”

Droze shared a video that shows the official transaction. It noted that the $100,000 bond was being paid by BLM via the Louisville Community Bail Fund.

“The $100,000 cashier’s check has been officially given to the clerk’s office to pay for @BLMLouisville activist Quintez Brown’s release,” Droze tweeted. 

“@LouCommBailFund is paying,” she adds. “Brown is accused of shooting at Louisville mayoral candidate @RunWithCraig [Greenberg].”

The Louisville Community Bail Fund bio on Twitter indicates the fund is curated by BLM Louisville and includes the hashtag ‘#FreeThemAll.’

Capitol Rioters held without Bail

Metro Council President David James criticized BLM Louisville in a statement made to WLKY News. He said that Brown was being rescued because of the horrible crime he’s accused of.

“It’s unfortunate Mr. Brown has been bailed out of jail, due to his propensity to violence,” he said.

“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.”

According to reports, the accused shooter was in custody less than 4 hours.

Brown’s attorney told the Louisville Courier-Journal that his client experienced a “mental health breakdown” and is “severely mentally ill and needs treatment, not prison.”

Meanwhile, according to the Justice Department’s log of Capitol riot defendants, there are at least two individuals involved in the January 6th incident that remain held without bond.

Nicholas James Brockhoff was arrested in May of 2021, pled not guilty in early September, and “remains held without bond.”

Ryan Samsel was arrested on January 30, 2021, and also “remains held without bond.”

The most serious charges they face are assaulting and threatening a federal agent. 

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) revealed to reporters recently that January 6 rioters were “being treated differently.”

“They’re denied time with their attorneys,” Greene alleged. “They are denied the ability to even see their families and have their families visit there. They are denied bail and (are) being held there without bail.”

“Many of these people have never been charged for a crime before,” she added.
