On July 17, 2016, Gavin Long ambushed and shot six police officers in Baton Rouge, LA. Three of them died right away. The shooter lived in Kansas City, MO, but traveled to Baton Rouge because of the city’s ongoing Black Lives Matter protests. He wrote an anti-police manifesto that he e-mailed to a rapper in Ohio. He stated on YouTube that he had recently been a member of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam.
Nick Tullier was shot multiple times. One of the bullets hit him in his head. He was seriously debilitated and had been fighting to live for the past six years. He finally died at age 47.
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards ordered the flag to be flown at half-mast at the capital. However, the media is whitewashing all mention of his killer and the motive from their reports. They are simply saying he was shot in an “anti-police ambush.”
Gavin Long was one of two racially motivated mass shootings that targeted White police officers in July of 2016.
On July 7, 2016, Micah Johnson opened fire on police officers during a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas, Texas. Johnson killed five police officers and injured another eleven. It was the largest loss of police lives in a single incident since 9/11. Police eventually used a bomb disposal robot to blow up Johnson with C-4. Johnson had stated that he wanted to kill White people, especially White police officers. Johnson was a former member of the New Black Panther Party [NBPP]. Johnson attended the Nation of Islam run Mohammed Mosque No. 48 in Dallas.
