Quintez Brown, a 21-year-old activist charged with trying to murder a Kentucky mayoral candidate has been released from jail after his $100,000 bond was posted by a bail fund supported by the local Black Lives Matter chapter. BLM Louisville organizer Chanelle Helm, who co-founded the bail fund, said Brown would be safer out of prison — and claimed he was likely suffering from PTSD after two years of social unrest and the COVID-19 pandemic. Mitch McConnel wrote on Twitter, “Less than 48 hours after a far-left Black Lives Matter activist tried to literally murder a politician, the radical left bailed their comrade out of jail. It is just jaw-dropping.”
