Black Lives Matter Pays Bail for Suspect in Louisville Mayoral Candidate Shooting
Quintez Brown walks free after far-left group posts $100,000 bail
Far-left group Black Lives Matter has paid the $100,000 bail off for the suspect in the shooting at a Kentucky mayoral candidate's office.
21-year-old Quintez Brown has now walked free after BLM posted his bail.
Brown was arrested and charged for the shooting inside Democratic Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg’s office.
While nobody was injured in the shooting, Greenberg narrowly avoided death after the bullets passed through his clothing.
Brown is accused of firing multiple shots inside Greenberg’s office during the attack and is charged with attempted murder.
On Wednesday afternoon, a local reporter recorded an activist affiliated with Black Lives Matter paying the bail.
Rachel Droze, of local news station WHAS 11, tweeted, “just spoke with @BLMLouisville.
"They are heading to the bank to get a cashiers check to post Quintez Brown’s bail.
"Brown is charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting at mayoral candidate @RunWithCraig.”
That story was confirmed by WHAS 11’s Courtney Hayden, who reported, “Chanelle Helm, an organizer for Black Lives Matter Louisville, said Wednesday that the Louisville Community Bail Fund will pay the $100,000 bond set for Quintez Brown.
"Leaders with BLM Louisville went to the bank for a cashier’s check around 3:30 p.m. to post his bail.”
As noted by Hayden, “Brown is facing one charge of attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment.
"During his arraignment Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty and his bond was raised from $75,000 to $100,000.”
BLM Louisville did not respond via Twitter to Droze’s tweet, but liked a response from a Twitter user who said, “Why does dude have a bail anyways?”
Later, Droze tweeted, “The $100,000 cashiers check has been officially given to the clerks office to pay for @BLMLouisville activist Quintez Brown’s release.
"@LouCommBailFund is paying.
"Brown is accused of shooting at Louisville mayoral candidate @RunWithCraig.”
The activist at the clerk’s office can be seen wearing a “Free Angela” retro shirt, referring to Dr. Angela Davis, an avowed communist and celebrated college professor who was at one point wanted by the FBI for her alleged involvement in a kidnapping plot that left four individuals dead in 1970.
Davis was ultimately acquitted but has remained a prominent figure in the American communist movement.

Brown is a self-proclaimed racial justice activist who has worked for “the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism.”
According to reports, he met with a black nationalist group just last week and has a history of promoting violent radicals such as Kwame Ture and Assata Shakur on Instagram and Twitter.
Brown was an MLK Scholar at the University of Louisville and “is the founder of From Fields to Arena, a group committed to providing political education and violence prevention training to youths engaged in hip-hop and athletics.”
As flagged by The Daily Beast, last week Brown met with a representative from “Lion of Judah,” a black nationalist militia group, and appeared to encourage his followers on Instagram to join the group.
The group believes that black people are the “chosen people” of God.
Those close to Brown said he has a history of mental illness.
Recently, he has also stated that “Louisville’s ‘criminal justice system’ is the only infrastructure that is constantly funded and reinforced by the bipartisan white power structure.
"The intrinsic violence of the jails and the police upholds our racial and economic disparities and our leaders are COMPLICIT.”
In January 2022 Greenberg, the mayoral candidate allegedly shot at by Brown, had recently pledged to crack down on rising violence, in part, by hiring more police officers.
"There is a huge shortage,” Greenberg said at the time.
"Right now, we’re approximately 300 officers short of a full staff.
"And so we need to focus on recruiting and retaining officers, a diverse core of officers that reflects the community that we serve.”
