Suspect Gavin Long was the gunman behind the deadly rampage that killed three cops in Baton Rouge. He was a retired Marine with a big trail of online rants talking about revenge and justice after Alton Sterling’s death. Long, uses pseudonym “Cosmo Setepenra,” has put up a series of videos, photos and posts explaining why he things BLM protests are unsuccessful: “100% of the victims who beat their oppressors are successful when they use bloodshed but zero percent have been successful by just protesting” You see, Long believes that Police Officers oppress and are direct enemies to people of color. He explained that the two parts to freedom are ‘revenue and blood’ and that he should be shamed if he went home before ‘killing his enemy’ the police. That’s one pre-meditated confession! What a brilliant dude. <= sarcasm
Long retweeted this picture of a cop being shot with the message “They gone be mad when niggas start doing this,” the caption read.

Sunday at about 9 a.m., Long went armed with a rifle near a convenience store on Airline Highway wearing a mask and body armor covered in all black. He opened fire on police murdering 3 and injuring even more. He got his retribution but will it result in the “liberation” he was looking for? It is sad that this honorably discharged Marine fell so far from reality. I cannot comprehend how he views the world from eyes of hate when really he is sitting in the greatest country in the world and has access to more opportunity and freedoms than he would anywhere else in the world. To access freedom and opportunity in the U.S. all you have to do is obey the laws… the same laws that are there and enforced for all America’s citizens.
