This guy is dumb as well as violent. I guess he thought he had immunity. And probably, the way things are going, in a few years he will have. But at the moment, our masters must keep up some pretence of even-handedness.
The founder of the Lake County chapter of Black Lives Matter has been charged in Wisconsin with a felony count of attempted battery dating to Aug. 24, when protests rocked Kenosha following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
An arrest warrant was issued Friday in Kenosha County for Clyde J. McLemore, 62, of Zion, on charges of aggravated battery or threats to a judge, prosecutor or law enforcement officer, as well as a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, according to Kenosha County Circuit Court records.
Kenosha officials could not be reached for comment Saturday.
According to a criminal complaint, the incident occurred about 2:20 p.m. Aug. 24 when Mayor John Antaramian held a news conference at the Public Safety Building, 1000 55th St.
An “unruly crowd” formed and tried to force its way into the building, so officers from the Civil Disturbance Response Team were called to disperse the crowd.
Someone told a detective that McLemore posted images of himself on Facebook that showed him kicking the front door of the Public Safety Building and bragging that he was trying to break the fingers of an officer who was pulling the door shut, the complaint said. A detective found the images on McLemore’s Facebook page that were posted on Aug. 25.
