Liberal activist Shaun King (who fights to defund police) spends $40k in donations on “guard dog”

BRUNSWICK, NJ – Self-proclaimed activist for minority rights, Shaun King, is raising eyebrows again, this time for spending over $40,000 out of his PAC funds to purchase a guard dog. King claims that his family needs extra protection from alleged death threats against him and his family.

King, an activist with Black Lives Matter, has come under fire as of late due to his extremely large purchase of a dog.

While there would not be as many questions had he used his own money, there are many since he used donated funds to his PAC.

In an Instagram post, King wrote:

“I need you to know this so that you understand why our family not only needs a guard dog at home, but 24/7 security wherever we go…I’ve received death threats in the mail, in email, and across social media. I report it. Nothing happens.

A dozen white supremacists and police officers are in prison right now because of my work. Several have recently been released.”

While there are no specific examples given of the death threats he has received nor how he has somehow been responsible for people going to prison, he added:

“So know this, when you see reports about the money it costs to keep me and my family safe, it’s nowhere near enough. Not at all. Not even close.”

The controversy started when people learned that Grassroots Law, King’s PAC, paid a total of $40,650 in two different transactions to Potrero Performance Dogs in California.

Less than a week after the donated money was paid to Potrero Performance Dogs, King went to Facebook to welcome the newest member of his family.

The dog, a Mastiff named Marz, appears to have been given back to Potrero Performance dogs because he had allegedly too much energy for King’s family.

It is unclear if the donated funds for social justice have been refunded back to the PAC or if King was given another dog in place of Marz.

While King did not address having spent the thousands of donated money for his own use, he did take time on social media to threaten two New York Post reporters for allegedly posting his house online. King wrote:

“I know where you live. Where you used to live. Where your family lives. Where they work. And a few thousand other people know now as well. You posted my house online. And caused white supremacists to show up at my doorstep to terrify my wife and kids.

“I’m going to at least make it uncomfortable for you. You aren’t going to post about my personal life without consequence. You [expletive] that won’t leave me and my wife and kids alone…I’m about to return this pain back to you.”

King then posted a video on Instagram in which he alleges that he has been taking the high road up until now. Although there are thousands of people that would dispute that claim, King says that he is now:

“Finished with the high road, at least for now.”

He continued:

“Forty-two years of taking the high road has made it such that anybody, anywhere, can attack and spread dangerous information about my family without consequences.

Normally, I will defend myself and my own reputation, and I will continue to do that as I need to, but now, I am going to use the same strategies that have been used against me, against those that have caused us harm.

I am returning your strategies back to you.”

King’s ‘high road’ antics have certainly caused more harm than good, including at least one person who committed suicide after comments King made on social media.

The man, Robert Cantrell, was in custody on unrelated charges in Houston when King got fixated on him being responsible for the death of a 7-year-old black girl in 2018.

King took to social media to blast his booking photograph while calling him “racist.” Cantrell took his own life while in jail before the true killers were taken into custody, charged, and convicted for the murder of the little girl.
