Did Feds Target BLM Protesters? WHUR Contributor August 19, 2021 at 11:00 am in LIFESTYLE, NEWS Tweet A new report is claiming that former President Trump’s Justice Department intentionally targeted Black Lives Matter protesters with prosecutions to disrupt the movement. The Movement for Black Lives released the report today explaining it was conducted in partnership with the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility Clinic at the City University of New York School of Law. The groups found that “much of the drive to use federal charges against protesters stemmed from top-down directives” from Trump and former Attorney General William Barr. The study also claims, “These directives, meant to disrupt the movement, were the primary reason for the unprecedented federalization of protest-related prosecutions seen in 2020.” Do you think the BLM movement got a bad rap because of these alleged directives?
