British Black Lives Matter activist Sasha Johnson is in critical condition after being shot in the head in London, her political party said on Sunday.
“It is with great sadness that we inform you that our own Sasha Johnson has been brutally attacked and sustained a gunshot wound to her head,” the Taking the Initiative Party (TTIP) said in a statement. “She is currently in intensive care and in a critical condition.”
The party said the attack happened “following numerous death threats as a result of her activism.”
Predictable assertations and finger-pointing from Johnson’s racialist party, TTIP.
The police statement said that at this early stage of investigation there was no evidence to suggest a targeted attack or that the woman “had received any credible threats against her prior to this incident.”
Rote caution and prudence from the police and a little “let’s not get ahead of ourselves” peacemaking diligence.
London’s Metropolitan Police responded to reports of gunfire in southeast London about 3 a.m. local time Sunday morning, it said in a statement.
Police said paramedics transported a 27-year-old woman with gunshot wounds to a south London hospital, and that the incident appeared to have happened near a house party in Southwark.
ohnson rose to prominence last year during the Black Lives Matter protests, as a leader of the TTIP, which has been called “Britain’s first Black-led political party.”
She is a mother of three, and also works to deliver food and groceries to families in need, according to the party, which called her “a strong, powerful voice for our people and our community” in its Sunday statement.
She lived, so she is in not a martyr. Martyrs are BLM crack.
She’s alive, so she is a racial figurehead. Figureheads are time-released BLM crack.
The real question is not who did this, it’s whether she lives or dies, because regardless of the outcome, narrative and paranoias will be spun to power agendas.
