A US mayoral candidate who was shot at during a campaign meeting this week has blasted the decision to grant bail to his alleged would-be assassin.
Nobody was injured in Monday’s gun attack on Louisville city hall contender Craig Greenberg.
Quintez Brown, a 21-year-old left-wing activist who has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, was bailed out by a Black Lives Matter fund on Wednesday.
Mr. Greenberg said it indicates the “justice system is clearly broken”.
Mr. Brown, from west Louisville, was reportedly an organiser during Black Lives Matter protests in the city following the fatal police shooting in March 2020 of a black woman, Breonna Taylor.
He has previously worked in youth violence prevention training and was once invited to meet Barack Obama at the launch of a program started by the former US president. END
