“It is nearly impossible to believe that someone can attempt murder on Monday and walk out of jail on Wednesday”
Quintez Brown, the man accused of trying to murder Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg, is already out of jail, having been bailed out by a Black Lives Matter affiliated group.
The January 6th rioters have been rotting in jail for months with no bail, but an attempted assassin is out of jail in 48 hours.
The bail fund has connections to the Democratic party.

Dem Heavyweights Back BLM Bail Fund That Freed Would-Be Assassin
The bail fund that freed a Louisville, Ky., Black Lives Matter activist charged with trying to murder a Jewish mayoral candidate is backed by Democratic fundraising juggernaut ActBlue, a progressive political group affiliated with the “Squad,” and a liberal nonprofit funded by George Soros.
The Louisville Community Bail Fund, an affiliate of the city’s Black Lives Matter chapter, posted $100,000 bail on Wednesday to spring Quintez Brown from jail following his arrest on charges of trying to assassinate Jewish Democratic mayoral hopeful Craig Greenberg. The group’s ability to quickly procure such a hefty sum comes thanks to its support from prominent Democratic organizations.
The bail fund, for example, has an active page on ActBlue, the political fundraising platform used universally by Democratic candidates across the country. Justice Democrats—a far-left PAC that supports Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.)—also actively fundraises for the bail group on the platform. Contributions sent to the Louisville Community Bail Fund through ActBlue are routed through the Tides Center, a liberal dark money behemoth that has received millions of dollars from Soros. Tides gave nearly $740,000 to the bail fund in 2020, tax filings show.
People are rightfully outraged. Craig Greenberg, the target of the attempted shooting, has spoken out.
From the Courier Journal:
Craig Greenberg joins chorus of criticism over jail release of Quintez Brown in shooting
The bail release of a Louisville activist from jail just two days after he was charged with the attempted murder of mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg has provoked a rising and angry chorus of criticism from both sides of the political aisle.
It’s also prompted a staunch defense from those who decided to put up the bail.
Greenberg, in a statement Thursday morning, said the release of Quintez Brown shows that our “criminal justice system is clearly broken.”
“It is nearly impossible to believe that someone can attempt murder on Monday and walk out of jail on Wednesday,” said Greenberg, who’d previously been hesitant to talk about whether the $100,000 bond amount for Brown was appropriate. “If someone is struggling with a mental illness and is in custody, they should be evaluated and treated in custody.
It’s astounding that this was allowed to happen.
Pretty wild how you can get bailed out for attempting to assassinate a rival political candidate (whom you hate because of his ethnicity), but dozens of people remain incarcerated for trespassing on government property. https://t.co/8ZIUYRyfHj

This reinforces the perception that criminal justice is being determined by party affiliation. This cannot continue. It’s not sustainable.DONATE
