A prominent Black Lives Matter leader had to remove a series of tweets encouraging people to take the law into their own hands.
Shaun King, a fixture in racially charged protests since hell broke loose in Ferguson, Mo., last year, took to Twitter Wednesday and placed a bounty on the Confederate battle flag at the South Carolina state capitol in Columbia, offering $10,000 and bail money to whoever took it upon themselves to remove it.
King later deleted his tweets, claiming that some civil rights “legends” told him it would be wise to.
Bob Beckel fired by Fox News; ‘We couldn’t hold ‘The Five’ hostage to personal issues.’
Unless Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks came to him in a dream, it’s tough to imagine who these “legends” might be.
But any excuse to backtrack from stupidity is a good one, considering that removing the flag would be a criminal act.
The Twitterverse blasted King for his idiocy.
OK. My idea was pretty widely blasted for being reckless & foolhardy. I accept that and apologize. I’ll take the criticism like a G.

@ShaunKing …It takes a real man to step up and admit to a mistake. Bruh, you make me proud! — A R Ferguson (@lifewave98) June 25, 2015
@ShaunKing Translation: My attorney advised me that conspiracy to commit a crime is itself a crime.

@ShaunKing It was reckless and foolhardy with someone else’s life. Not yours. — Steve___J ن (@Steve___J) June 24, 2015

@ShaunKing And you have kids. Way to weaken the gene pool even further. — Beaksley (@U_Quack_Addict) June 24, 2015
@ShaunKing It wasn’t just an idea. You tried to convince someone to commit a FELONY on your behalf. I really doubt you would have paid them.

@ShaunKing I thought you were joking! Remember, your sphere of influence. Don’t ask what you wouldn’t do yourself. — Matrix Moma (@Trinity6215) June 24, 2015
Like a G.? Well you sure aren’t a M, or you’d done it yourself. @ShaunKing

@ShaunKing you should be banned from Twitter for that irresponsible display of activism. Putting others in danger for money? Ridiculous! — H.G. Wells (@RobotTruck) June 24, 2015
