The “Supreme Commander” of the Not Fucking Around Coalition (NFAC), John Johnson, has been brought up on federal charges after camera footage has confirmed he pointed his rifle (no confirmation on whether or not it was his “bullpup” XM-15 that kicks) at law enforcement in Louisville.
‘Supreme commander’ of so-called Black militia accused of pointing rifle at cops during Louisville protest
“Grandmaster Jay,” since apparently Supreme Commander wasn’t enough title, pointed his weapon at and used the weapon mounted flashlight on officers observing a September 4th demonstration from a rooftop.
“All officers advised they were concerned Johnson might intentionally, or even accidentally, discharge a round at them,” the agency’s Louisville division said in a statement to the Daily News.
A highly valid concern since it is clear that Johnson has no clue.
NFAC has caused injury due to negligent discharges at their protests on multiple occasions. The idiots among them make the average gun show numbskull need to step up their numbskullery to compete. Obviously, for those oblivious to tongue in cheek sarcasm, I do not wish negligent handling to escalate. I do like seeing a dangerous individual with a following brought to answer for their foolishness though. I don’t have high hopes that this will be cast as anything other than oppression of him based on his race among that follower group, but I can have low hopes that some will see the why.
Authorities said Johnson knew exactly who he was pointing his rifle at because at least two officers with the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department were wearing body armor with a semi-reflective placard clearly identifying them, according to the FBI.
None of the officers had drawn their handguns and only one had a rifle that night, though he did not point it at Johnson or any of the NFAC members at the scene, the agency said.
The criminal complaint says the suspect “forcibly assaulted, resisted, opposed, impeded, intimidated, and interfered with federally deputized task force officers” when he aimed a rifle at them. The charge is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison.
I doubt Johnson will catch the full 20, 5 would be more my guess. This, along with continuing Antifa arrests and other individual arrests for various misconducts around the nation related to protests show a clear line that LE organizations are not just letting everything slide. They may not have the evidence to pursue every assault, arson, or theft. But those they do go through.
We will see.
I’m most curious what the coalition the keeps finding out because they clearly aren’t living up to their name, will find out next. Maybe how to be a responsible 2A and justice advocacy organization? I doubt it, but one can continue to hope. People learn new things every day.
