Skip to comments.The Abysmal Record of Benjamin Crump

Trial lawyer and ambulance-chaser Benjamin Crump needs to go away.
Formerly the president of the Florida Bar which reflects poorly on the Florida Bar Crump has risen to fame defending black victims of our racist society. A lot of the words in that last sentence are subjective. As the following rundown will show, he's either a terrible lawyer or just a scumbag looking for a quick payday. It could also be both.
You surely recognize his name, but do you know his record defending black criminals? It is appalling. In fact, history almost guarantees that when Crump signs up to defend a client, you can be sure that the police actually did act appropriately. This year alone, Crump is representing the survivors of George Kirby (that is, George Floyd), Breonna Taylor, Jacob Blake, and now Dijon Kizzee. It seems probable that all four cases will result in exculpatory verdicts for the officers.
Rather than accept that the police are asked to make split-second decisions in scenarios we can't even imagine, because his clients are black, and never minding that they are also coked out, high on meth or PCP, violent and aggressive, and always resistant to lawful commands, Crump instead chooses to capitalize on the current blacks-are-victims narrative and hop on the white guilt train so he and the survivors can go swimming like Scrooge McDuck after the financial windfall.
How did we get here?
The first high-profile Crump case occurred back in 2002, when he represented the surviving family of Genie McMeans, Jr., who was killed by a new black female police officer. The deceased initiated contact with the officer, yelled at her, and disobeyed her orders. When he eventually made a move to retrieve something from his car, he was fatally fired upon.

Federal law should bar any government payout as a fruit of any person’s federally prohibited recreational drug use.
How do these idiots get a law license? That guy is about as bright as a 7 watt bulb.
I’m glad somebody finally noticed.
Crump knows it isn't about his clients guilt nor innocence.....it's about media attention and revenue flow he obtains...and that's it. it's well known he tells family members they also will gain monetarily from interviews etc. He stages everything in order to gain media attention.
Any dollar $$$ amounts of his many settlements?
BLM’s side of the argument Crumped. Zimmerman’s civil suit against Crump, etc. may finally bring something close to justice.
Just like Al Sharpton.
