Update on BR attack

Here are some of the latest news on the attack in police officers in Baton Rouge today.

*The shooter was Gavin Long.  He is a former Marine who deployed to Iraq.  Online media reports are claiming he was a member of the Nation of Islam.  He is from Kansas City, Missouri.  Several Youtube videos show him in Baton Rouge during the last few days.

*A standoff exists between individuals in his Missouri home and police.  A reporter was met at the door of the house by a man holding a rifle when she knocked on the door earlier today.

*The Advocate posted an audio recording of the radio communications between the officers under fire and HQ
on its website.  This recording is not for the faint of heart.  

*Here is one Youtube video posted by Long on July 12:

He ironically says one should not make decisions based on emotion.  He says at 4:00 that the Native Americans were "extincted" and asks at what point should an individual native American stand up for himself. He apparently made the video in Houston.

*"I'm not affiliated with anyone" but "the spirit of justice".  He later says he is the one who has to live with his decisions and "my heart is pure".

*"Our religion is justice".  He talks about staying non-emotional "until its time".

*Video from Dallas.  "Revenue and blood".  He uses that phrase several times as he says blacks should stand up to bullies.  It was posted on July 10.  "I am so powerful because I stand on my rights.... That's why they are so afraid of me".  Um, nope.

*Meanwhile, here is one Facebood message posted by one of the deceased officer several days ago:

Gofundme page for Officer Jackson. 

*Deputy Brad Garafola:

When Tonja Garafola turned off the interstate to head to B-Quik convenience store on Airline Highway Sunday morning to meet her husband, she ran into a sea of police cars. It was there she discovered he was one of three officers killed by what authorities have identified as a man with a rifle.

Brad Garafola, 45, with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, was working extra duty at the store and his shift had ended at 8 a.m. He was one of three officers killed during a shoot out around 8:30 a.m.

It was the last shift Brad Garafola had to work before heading out Monday for vacation plans, Tonja Garafola said.  
When she got no answer after she tried to call Brad at 8:49 a.m., she knew something was wrong.

At their home Sunday afternoon, family and friends gathered to offer support while the television was tuned to ongoing coverage of the tragedy.

“Everybody on this street depended on him,” Tonja Garafola said. Rest of article.

Someone was posting on Long's FB page this afternoon, after he was shot. Diatribes about the "egotistical" cops, and that all people should band together to stop the "evil>"

Something is weird about all of this. Like, beyond George Sorros weird.

8:15 I saw that as well; he purportedly had a Twitter account and spewed the same garbage there. Family member/friend/posting from beyond the grave?

Why does this sound like jihad terrorism and less like a BLM killing?

Until we realize that the radical muslims are here among us we will have uprisings like this. How many more innocent people have to die at the hands of these fanatics? Our current leader and wanna be leader want to allow many more radicals to come here and operate their religion within our neighborhoods. It's time a change is made. This is very serious. Baton Rouge is not that far from Jackson .

First, the Nation of Islam isn't really Islam. A professor of mine said "The Nation of Islam is to Islam as Mormonism or Sevwnth Day Adventism are to mainstream Christianity." Elijah Muhammed injected a bunch of his own quirky beliefs into it. (One reason Malcom X and E.M. parted ways. And to this day, Calypso Louie Farrakhan adds a healthy dose of numerology into NOI doctrine.

So I don't think this was a jihad operation in the traditional sense.

This is, however, not surprising in the least. When the Kenyan in the WH has the unmitigated gall to -- at a memorial service for dead cops -- tar all police as racist, his minions see a green light to butcher cops. This hateful man -- who was going to begin some great racial healing process -- has done nothing but sow chaos and discord. Remember: rag head blows people up, or massacres at Ft. Hood, we must jump to conclusions. But if any cop shoots a black man, factual circumstances are irrelevant. Doesn't matter what the perp did. That shooting is the result of racist cops.

He truly is a terrible human being, and his 8 years have wrecked the culture, and given us the 2 worst party nominees of all time.

Fuck, I hate this guy.

How are the Moors involved in this and why do they insist descendants from slaves are not citizens of the U.S.?

Thanks. Sorry for the typos.

Please explain your comment. How is this statement or "advice" relevant to the the conversation?

It looks like Gavin Long was a member of a Louisiana sovereign citizen group called the Washitaw Tribe that claim to be indigenous to the area and own all the land from the Louisiana Purchase. Look them up - their web page is a hoot.

Seems like I read somewhere he was also a member of Moorish Science Temple of America who believe any descendant of slaves is not an American citizen.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
