    4 officers dead after shooting near Baton Rouge PD HQ

    BATON ROUGE - Two Baton Rouge Police officers and two East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office deputies are dead following a Sunday morning shooting on Airline Highway.

    Another three officers have been reported wounded, but the extent of those injuries has yet to be made available.

    Authorities have confirmed that one suspect is dead while two others remain at large. Law enforcement encouraged any citizens who see anything suspicious to contact police as soon as possible. Residents were encouraged to stay indoors until the remaining suspects are in custody.

    Baton Rouge cops shot at after responding to MWAG call....

    https://www.yahoo.com/gma/three-poli...opstories.html

    Three police officers are dead and three others injured from the shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, which happened after officers responded to a 911 call of a man in all black walking around with a rifle, officials said.

    Unfortunately we'll never know if he was just protecting himself or not.

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a statement, "This is an unspeakable and unjustified attack on all of us at a time when we need unity and healing.

    How does he know that? He wasn't there.

    I inclined to give the ex-Marine the benefit of a doubt on this one until non-governmental created evidence is shown to prove otherwise.

    Other things that the gov't say about him is irrelevant and straw arguments.

    It appears he was a LAC until police showed up. This points to something that the police did to instigate the shooting beginning.

    Jumping to too many conclusions........while claiming to not.

    The guy was an out of state Muslim who came to kill cops. He was dressed for it and drew them into an ambush. To call him an "open carrier" is a huge disservice to those who open carry handguns in Louisiana daily without incident. We rarely break out long guns here without a compelling reason such as civil unrest and the need for them in such events. To simply walk around with one is the exception to the rule and while perfectly legal, not encouraged in general for safety reasons such as muzzle control and trigger exposure.

    The police responded rather quickly and were ambushed on arrival. There is cell phone video taken from an individual's car on the scene. The video is garbage but the audio is telling as you can hear the gun battle and how close it is to these people's car as well as her "running commentary." The police radio calls recording is pretty interesting as well.

    I saw on the news where they arrested two people in a car that were black, and wearing black clothes. Now today I see they have ID the lone gunman. Is it any wonder that black people have such animosity.

    Gavin Eugene Long Declared Sovereign Citizenship Last Year

    Baton Rouge cop killer Gavin Eugene Long was affiliated with a little-known black nationalist sovereign citizen group known as the Washitaw Nation, filings in Jackson Co., Missouri show.

    The records, which were first reported by the Kansas City Star, show that in May 2015, Long changed his name to Cosmo Ausar Setepenra and declared himself a sovereign citizen of the United Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Mu’ur Nation.

    LOL @"officially confirmed," sounds like a professional authoritarian and credentialist, some kind of counselor practicing here on the Gullah-bull?

    Officially confirmed by who? There is no established "Sovereign Citizen Movement".

    Its a tag that the gov't applies to those people who have various characteristics of their opinions on political matters.

    Its really was made up by the FBI.

    I've been called a "sovereign citizen"[SC] for demanding access to public meetings and public records --- even gov't officials just make up whatever they want to label someone a SC.

    In the governments eyes, we are all SC to some .govs.

    Wonder how many other members have been called SC by .govs ?

    I note that the media is quick to report the respective races anytime a black man is shot by a non-black cop. Yet one is hard pressed to find very many reports of the fact that this shooter is black and most of his victims white. Tell a lie often enough....

    Is it any wonder that 1930s Germans blamed the Jews for so many of their problems?

    Are cops racist? Or do they just go where the crime is?

    Nation of Islam member

    As linked on Drudge yesterday:

    https://www.zerocensorship.com/uncen...-member-295044

    A Youtube account operated by Gavin Eugene Long and discovered by The Daily Caller reveals key insight into what might have motivated the 29-year-old black man who killed three Baton Rouge police officers Sunday morning.

    Videos on Long's account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member. He also railed against "crackers" and made references to Alton Sterling, the black man killed by police in Baton Rouge on July 5.

    Read 'The War on Cops' and 'The New Jim Crow'. Each addresses that question from their distinct side of the coin. Neither is going to dissuade from prejudice.

    Both look like worthy reads. Thank you.

    Far too many are only interested in consuming material that confirms their pre-existing point of view. A couple of opposing view points is refreshing.

    I also suggest "The Color of Crime" for some easily accessible data based on hard DOJ stats. The publishers, American Renaissance, may well be racist. But, I've yet to see anyone mount a credible attack of the DOJ data they use or the conclusions they draw from that data.

    several years ago lived adjacent to a family of colour whose early/mid thirties son expressed his dislike about his neighbour ~ me, while in a tippy toed, frothing at the mouth, sreaming hissy fit where i learned my given name had changed to 'cracker'...he ranted at me for about 5 min then screamed back inside.

    being the consumate neighbour, thought i should offer a small offering to smooth things over, so i went to the food lion and got him a gift.

    to preclude another possible personal confrontation, i mailed my gift, signed regards from your ' neighbour'...

    my understanding was he almost destroyed the interior of the home when he opened the package to find a three pack of 'cracker jacks' inside.

    he never remained outside whenever i was in the backyard, always OC'g of course.

    neighbourhood lore is the individual is making little rocks out of big rocks for various sexual offenses and other crimes both in and outside our community.

    apparently he took his name calling a bit more seriously then i did.

    The best accommodation of an epithet is to embrace it, become it, the accuser is clearly much more sensitive than the accused.

    I am curious, since OC is legal in LA, what would have happened if the police ignored the MWAG call. AFAIK he did not attack any civilians. It would seem all to well that the killer knew he could entice them to do something to make them an easy target.

    Just like robbers like to order fast food delivered to target the delivery driver this killer used their own response to MWAG calls to lure them.
