Fort Worth Update: Jacqueline Craig’s Lawyer Not Licensed to Practice in Texas

Let’s have an update on the appalling and increasingly farcical story of Black Lives Matter radicalism tearing apart the Fort Worth Police Department from within.

The story began when activists like dubious black person Shaun King (a.k.a. Talcum X) made a racial issue out of a disorderly woman named Jacqueline Craig forcing Officer William Martin to arrest her. Officers of Color within the FWPD then doxed Martin, putting at risk his life and that of his pregnant wife.

Craig has tried to milk her 15 minutes by hiring “civil rights” attorney Lee Merritt to sue Martin and the city of Fort Worth. Lo and behold:

Merritt is being sued for allegedly practicing without a license in Texas. …

The Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee filed the suit Monday in Tarrant County, seeking a temporary injunction to stop Merritt from practicing in state courts in Texas.

A Collin County judge granted a temporary injunction, preventing Merritt from practicing law at the state level until a hearing next week.

An exam question for students of moonbattery: Why is it a problem that Merritt is not licensed to practice law in Texas?

That’s right. Because racism — or as Merritt intones:

“Launching baseless investigations and filing frivolous lawsuits is a common tactic used to prevent civil rights lawyers from disrupting unjust practices in Southern States.”

Why should Merritt need to be licensed to loot practice in Texas? His oppressed status and noble goal of imposing social justice are license enough.

By the way, one of the malicious leakers who doxed Officer Martin is former Assistant Chief Abdul Pridgen. Considering the seriousness of his transgression, his punishment was trivial, but he did get busted down to Captain. He responded by filing suit, going on leave, and setting up a GoFundMe page.

Then the city of Seaside, California chose him to be their next Chief of Police out of a pool of 51 applicants.

White officers are sure to know that he will have their backs — and a selection of knives to stick in them.

Congratulations to Seaside. The town is now certifiably politically correct.

    A cesspool of characters in this. Seaside will be a great place to avoid…

    Thanks for giving me my belly laugh of the day, Dave.

    It is quite satisfying to see liberals being caught up in their own occupational licensing laws they’ve foisted upon the rest of u.

    Licensure? Are you kidding? All leftists have to do is claim they’re something or somebody, and that’s as good as gold. Bruce Jenner obviously comes to mind, but does anybody remember this Official Licensed Sign Language Interpreter?
