A video posted by WHAS11 News reporter Rachel Droze shows the Louisville chapter of Black Lives Matter (BLM) posting a $100,000 bond for the release of a local activist accused of the attempted assassination of mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg.

BLM activist Quintez Brown was arrested for the attempted shooting of Greenberg, a Democrat, on Monday.

Brown, once featured by the Obama Foundation as a “rising face” and a featured guest in an MSNBC segment about students demanding stricter gun laws, was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment following the shooting.

Nobody was injured in the incident, though a bullet reportedly grazed Greenberg’s shirt. Brown has pled not guilty to the charges.

The Louisville BLM chapter told Droze they were “heading to the bank to get a cashier’s check to post Quintez Brown’s bail.”

“The $100,000 cashier’s check has been officially given to the clerk’s office to pay for @BLMLouisville activist Quintez Brown’s release,” Droze tweeted. 

“@LouCommBailFund is paying,” she adds. “Brown is accused of shooting at Louisville mayoral candidate @RunWithCraig [Greenberg].”

The Louisville Community Bail Fund bio on Twitter indicates the fund is curated by BLM Louisville and includes the hashtag ‘#FreeThemAll.’

Capitol Rioters Held Without Bail

Metro Council President David James, in a statement to WLKY News, criticized BLM Louisville for bailing Brown out considering the heinous crime he is accused of committing.

“It’s unfortunate Mr. Brown has been bailed out of jail, due to his propensity to violence,” he said.

“I think it’s irresponsible and I hope those who contributed to posting this bond are prepared to be held accountable if Mr. Brown injures someone while out.”

The accused shooter was reportedly in custody for less than four hours.

According to @WHAS11 @McSwineBNews, @BLMLouisville organizer Quintez Brown has officially been released from jail just shy of 4 hours after the @LouCommBailFund paid his $100K cash bond. Brown is accused of shooting at Louisville mayoral candidate @RunWithCraig.

Brown’s attorney told the Louisville Courier-Journal that his client experienced a “mental health breakdown” and is “severely mentally ill and needs treatment, not prison.”

Meanwhile, according to the Justice Department’s log of Capitol riot defendants, there are at least two individuals involved in the January 6th incident that remain held without bond.

Nicholas James Brockhoff was arrested in May of 2021, pled not guilty in early September, and “remains held without bond.”

Ryan Samsel was arrested on January 30, 2021, and also “remains held without bond.”

Their biggest charges appear to be assaulting a police officer and assaulting a federal agent, respectively.

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) revealed to reporters recently that January 6 rioters were “being treated differently.”

“They’re denied time with their attorneys,” Greene alleged. “They are denied the ability to even see their families and have their families visit there. They are denied bail and (are) being held there without bail.”

“Many of these people have never been charged for a crime before,” she added.
