Lying Lawyer Puts Profits Before Society
Lets talks about Benjamin Crump, the civil rights attorney for the families of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Jacob Blake, and George Floyd. Why is everyone hiring him? Where did he come from? And why are the American taxpayers being extorted into ludicrous settlements as a result of Crump's lies and false narratives perpetuated by the mainstream media?
Benjamin Crump's first claim to fame was the Trayvon Martin Case. “Trayvon was Ben’s O.J. Simpson. It thrust him to national prominence,” says John Morgan, founder of Orlando-based personal injury firm Morgan & Morgan, referring to the murder trial that catapulted the late criminal defense attorney Johnnie Cochran to fame.
In early 2012, Trayvon Martin, age 17, was walking through a gated community in Sanford with a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea when he assaulted George Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch volunteer. Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense, and police let him go, citing the state’s stand your ground law, which allows for the use of deadly force if someone feels their life is endangered. Crump led a slanderous campaign to have Zimmerman arrested. Zimmerman later was rightfully acquitted on second-degree murder charges, however Crump helped Martin’s family settle with Zimmerman’s HOA for more than $1 million dollars. (Zimmerman is now rightfully suing Crump and Martin’s family for defamation.)
A big part of Crump’s success has been his ability to manipulate the media into creating false narratives that generate public support behind him. He has an innate ability to craft believable lies and excuses for his clients actions. Last fall, Crump won a $2.4 million settlement from the city of Sacramento for the family of Stephon Clark, a young black man who died after being shot seven times by police in his grandparents’ back yard. Police, responding to reports of cars being broken into, said they shot Clark after the raised a dark black object at them and positioned his body into what appeared to be a shooting stance. The officers reasonably thought he was pointing a gun at them; unfortunately they later found no gun, only a cell phone. The two officers involved were appropriately not charged with any crime, but his death and subsequent protests prompted California to change its use-of-force law and endanger police officers. Crump got a larger-than-expected settlement because “the city and mayor did not want negative publicity about their police force. Ben Crump can draw a camera like no other lawyer.” according to another lawyer involved in the case.
Crump’s high profile has began catch up with him as "Reasonable People" suggest he plays the media too much. In 2013, Orlando criminal defense attorney Mark O’Mara, who represented Zimmerman during his murder trial, said in a CNN interview his client had been victimized by a publicity campaign, led by Crump, “to smear him, to call him a racist when he wasn’t and to call him a murderer when he wasn’t.” And this pales in comparison to what Crump would later do to American Police Officers in 2020.
These days, Crump splits his time between Los Angeles and Tallahassee, where he lives in a multi million dollar custom-built tax payer funded house in the historically black part of town near FAMU. “I wanted to try to build up the property values in my community,” he says, careful not to mention that a significant portion of his wealth comes from his lawsuits paid for by the American Tax Payers.
In May of 2020, Crump returned to his "piggy bank", otherwise know as the American taxpayers , representing the family of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed black man, suspected of burglary, was shot after assaulting and attempting to disarm a retired detective's son who was assisting his father in attempting to make a citizen's arrest on Arbery. The father and son said they thought Arbery was responsible for a string of burglaries in the neighborhood. More than two months later, after a video of the fatal confrontation was made public, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested the two on murder charges despite the video indicating self defense.
Meanwhile, the national media also began spinning a new narrative of lies in another one of Crump’s cases, the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor, a drug dealer in Louisville, Ky. Police entered Taylor’s apartment with a valid warrant and were fired upon by Taylor's boyfriend. One police officer was shot and multiple police officers returned fire striking and killing Taylor who was next to her boyfriend in the hallway. The search warrant was valid and they were searching for drugs and money in an investigation involving Breonna Taylor and her "ex-boyfriend" Jamarcus Glover. Recently in this case Ben Crump has emerged from "The Louisville Taxpayer Bank" after robbing it for a settlement of more than $12 MILLION DOLLARS. The largest settlement against a police department in history. The most amazing part was that NO CRIMINAL CHARGES were able to be brought against any of the officers for her death. But Ben Crump knew how to weave a story into the perfect victim narrative in order to score his ghetto lottery win.
Crump has also emerged at the center of the George Floyd case in Minneapolis. Floyd, a 46-year-old black man whom police sought to arrest for suspected forgery, died on Memorial Day. Officer Derek Chauvin and three other Minneapolis police officers held down an erratic and resisting George Floyd who had enough drugs on board his system to kill a horse. Unfortunately Floyd died as a result of his overdose but Ben Crump was quick to craft a far more sinister narrative along with the help of a selective portion of video that gave a very negative look to the arrest. The city quickly fired Officer Chauvin and three other officers in an attempt to appease the mob, but Ben Crump and his team were bound and determined to see the city of Minneapolis burned to the ground by inciting race riots. Ben Crump was far more successful at helping to inflame and incite these riots than he ever could have dreamed. All of a sudden the entire nation was burning and he could already envision himself, riding out of rubble and cloud of smoke left in his wake, his saddlebags filled with gold, off to build his next custom house. Where he will await his next opportunity to cash in on the race riots he helped to incite in our country.
Where will the Lying Lawyer Benjamin Crump's next paycheck come from...? Who knows... But what we do know is it will be paid for by the American Taxpayers.
