Far-Left NBA ‘Activist’ Picks Liberals’ Next Target

In a now-deleted tweet, NBA activists LeBron James identified the police officer involved in a recent Columbia, Ohio shooting with the caption ‘YOU’RE NEXT.’ The tweet serves as a way to threaten the officer, implying his fate will be similar to the now-imprisoned Derek Chauvin.

The officer has been identified as Nicholas Rearden.

Total outrage to the basketball activist’s tweet quickly ensued:

Officer Rearden was involved in the fatal shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black teenager seen on video wielding a knife with intent to harm. The incident occurred just minutes within the verdict of Derek Chauvin, who was charged and convicted of the murder of George Floyd. The Ma’Khia incident sparked mass outrage from BLM activists despite body cam footage or other emerging evidence.

Officials with the Columbus Division of Police released footage of the shooting Tuesday night just hours after it happened, a departure from protocol as the force faces immense scrutiny from the public following a series of recent high-profile police killings that have led to clashes.

LeBron James is one of the more outspoken NBA players on social justice issues. The NBA has not said whether James will be disciplined for the tweet.
