The cop-killing gunman, 29-year-old Gavin Long — who ambushed police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, leaving three law enforcement officers dead and another three wounded on Sunday morning — is slowly being understood by authorities, but for not the right reasons. Long, who was shot dead by police officers responding to his unprovoked attack, is being given held up as a hero by some involved in Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panthers and other black-racist groups.
And the news media — who’ve always shown a preference for stories that accuse police of showing a propensity for violence and racism — are attempting to separate these and other cop-killings from Democratic Party politics and politicians such as Hillary Clinton and her team of counter-culture retreads.
The media wishes to avoid the obvious: Hillary Clinton and her party’s anti-cop rhetoric is nothing new; these Democrats are mostly retreads from the anti-America 1960’s that saw people such as Hillary’s husband Bill Clinton marching with radicals carrying a Vietcong flag. Also included with these counter-culture activists were media-stars such as Bobby Seales, William Ayers, Eldridge Cleaver, Mark Rudd, and others who advocated violence and targeted police officer (“pigs”).
For example, in 1971 in New York City, Police Officers Waverly Jones and Joseph Piagentini were shot and killed while on foot patrol in the Colonial Park Houses public housing complex, at 159th Street and Harlem River Drive. They were ambushed by members of the Black Liberation Army.
According to analysts at the organizations Homeland Security News Wire (HSNW) and National Association of Chiefs of Police (NACOP), the Baton Rouge cop-killer Gavin Long appears to have been motivated by 1960’s-era Black Nationalism movement. Its leaders — such as Malcolm X, Elijah Mohammed and the Nation of Islam, the original Black Panthers and the Symbionese Liberation Army — called on African Americans to violently fight back against the “white power structure” in the United States. Some even advocated taking land in the U.S. and creating their own Black Power nation.
As the two patrolmen were returning to their police cruiser, three suspects snuck up behind them and opened fire. Patrolman Jones was struck in the back of the head and killed instantly. Patrolman Piagentini was shot 13 times and succumbed to his injuries en route to the hospital.
One of the suspects stole Patrolman Jones’ weapon which was later recovered in San Francisco, California, after several BLA members executed a San Francisco police officer, Sergeant John Victor Young.
The three suspects were arrested and sentenced to 25 years to life. One of the suspects died in prison. The other two have been denied parole several times. These two suspects, along with five others, were also involved in the murder of Sgt. Young of the San Francisco Police Department on August 29th, 1971. One has a parole hearing in June 2018, and the other has his hearing in February 2018.
Five days after the fatal shooting of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, Long posted a video on YouTube to express his views on the incident: “I’m not gonna harp on that, you know, with a brother killing the police. You get what I’m saying?” Long said. “That’s, it’s justice.”
In another video, referring to Native Americans, Long said, “When they were extincted by the same people that run this country, my question to you, just something you can think about: At what point should they have stood up?”
In yet another video, he praised the Deacons for Defense — a group of African Americans who formed an armed self-defense group during the civil rights movement of the 1960s — as men who “when they kids was also getting killed by cops and other white supremacy members, they stood up and stood firm.”
“It’s a time for peace, but it’s a time for war, and most of the times when you want peace, you got to go to war,” Long said in another video. “You see what I’m saying?”
According to Homeland Security News Wire, “Police believe Long was in Baton Rouge to promote a self-help book he wrote and self-published. The book, The Cosmo Way: A W(H)olistic Guide for the Total Transformation of Melanated People, is written under the pen name Cosmo Setepenra. In the introduction, Long claimed that he had a spiritual revelation while in college and soon sold his cars and gave away his material possessions, and took a trip to Africa — his ancestral homeland.
He wrote in the book that he traveled across the continent learning from its native spiritual practitioners and elder holistic healers and was concerned in particular that people with darker skin lead healthy, holistic lifestyles.”
“If Hillary Clinton is elected to the White House and the Democrats take control of both houses of Congress, it will be a sad day for not only law enforcement but also for Americans. She will cause more deterioration to relations between police and the communities they serve, while at the same time she’ll appoint leftist, counter-culture Supreme Court justices. That will clear the road for disarming the American people!” noted former police captain, Russell Leckie.
