Three Baton Rouge police officers were assassinated and three others were wounded by an armed black male Sunday morning, in an incident which appears to be the new normal for America.
One East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office deputy and two Baton Rouge Police Department officers were killed and three others wounded during a Sunday morning shooting on Airline Highway near the Hammond Aire Plaza.
Authorities later identified the dead shooter as Gavin Long, of Kansas City, Missouri. Social media posts indicate that Long was an active member of an anti-government group called New Freedom Group.
A motive has yet to be established that connects the shooting to recent protests in Baton Rouge.
Oh please. The piece of garbage was a black male who hated police, so I’m fairly sure he was at least partially influenced by the Black Lives Matter terrorist group.
EBRSO’s Sid Gautreaux confirmed that one of the BRPD officers killed was 41 years old with less than a year of service. The other was a 32-year-old and was a 10 year veteran of the force. The other officer killed was an EBR Sheriff’s deputy. The injured EBRSO deputy is 41 years old, and is currently fighting for his life in critical condition at Baton Rouge General hospital.
This marks ten police officers shot to death since July 1st (31 total by gunfire), and sixty-six total officers killed in the line of duty this year. Make no mistake, if you live in a big city, this war on police is coming to your neighborhood sooner rather than later.
