BATON ROUGE – Police have closed streets between Baton Rouge Police Headquarters and I-12 where law enforcement officers have been shot.

A witness told WBRZ News 2, a man was dressed in black with his face covered shooting indiscriminately when he walked out between a convenience store and car wash across from Hammond Air Plaza. Shots were fired around 9 a.m. Sunday. The exact location of the business where the shooting took place has yet to be released.
A very large manhunt began immediately with officers hurrying to contain the scene.
One: A botched armed robbery.
Two: They (BLM) had to do something!

Seems as though some people took them up on this.
OR, it could just be an armed robbery gone very bad.
It is early time yet.
This might not be a BLM ambush.
We know very little.
Or ISIS-motivated terrorists. Or white supremacists thinking conditions are perfect to trigger a race war. (Dressed all in black with black masks would fit either theory.) Maybe anti-government extremists like Timothy McVeigh, inspired by “The Turner Diary.” Or antisocial psychopaths lacking any particular ideology, looking to make their mark on the world. We’ve seen that at Columbine.
Knowing nothing but the most basic facts, it’s disturbing how many such possibilities seem credible. There are probably even new ones no one has considered yet. Is there a common denominator underneath all of this stuff? It seems like there must be, since we’re seeing more and more of it all the time.

@Nanny G, #3:
I think that would be a very wise thing to do. Both conventions will provide spot-lighted stages and soft peripheral targets for extremists having a wide variety of motives. It’s just too obvious to ignore.
I may be wrong, but the short burst of gunfire at the very end of the topmost video sounds like it might be from a fully automatic weapon.
it was a full auto
Just wait for that stupid Matt Damon to demand against the confiscation of all privatly owned guns while the jerk is in austsralia HEY DAMON IF YOUR STILL IN AUSTRALIA STAY THERE AND SWIM WITH THE CROCS YOU IDIOT
I try to avoid jumping to conclusions, but I find grasping at straws reprehensible.
I wonder when President Barack Obama will address how the left, the media and often himself are responsible for the lies which get rapidly spread each and every time there is a police shooting that the left drives to the forefront of media attention and which lead directly to these senseless shootings?
Yeah, sure. Obama Obama Obama Obama. You’re like a stuck record. Is there some point you’re trying to make?
Here’s another stuck record, flapping his lips without having anything intelligent to offer:
The man is an idiot.
@Greg: When WILL Obama or anyone else on the left (including YOU) address the violence that is a direct result of the lies spread about police actions? Or, is the violence the result you desire?
When will you acknowledge that the causes of the problem are not entirely one-sided?
@Greg: What is the other side? What is driving the violent protests and murder of innocent cops other than lies about police shootings?
More is coming out about the murderer of the three police in Baton Rouge:
Gavin Eugene Long of Kansas City, Missouri has been a member of the Nation of Islam.
But he distanced himself from it at the end:
His You Tube channel is full of him calling white people ”crackers.”
He had an alias: Cosmo Ausar Setepenra.*
He tried to only shop at black owned businesses.
He called Arabs and Indian (from India) the “F” word.
* Ausar refers to Osiris, an Egyptian god, usually identified as the god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead. Serchio, the third longest river in the Italian region of Tuscany, known in antiquity as Auser. Ausar Auset Society, a Pan-African religious organization in the US.
Setepenra refers to the 6th child of Nefertiti.
@Greg: If it isn’t one sided, then why did it not happen under Bush
Wall Street Journal is saying that he had ties to “anti government” groups which usually mean (in WSJ) militias and sovereign citizens and suchThe Nation of Islam is a very conservative muslim off shoot
@Randy: actually, it did. Technology has advanced.
@John: But in this case, it means association with Black Lives Matter and New Black Panthers.
NOTE: No chagrined admission from Greg that it wasn’t a white supremacist as he incorrectly theorized.
Well in this case apparently it also means conservative ex marine Iraq veteran sovereign citizen and 2nd Amendnent gun lover
Why leave those out ?
@John: Where exactly do you get conservative from a New Black Panthers/Black Lives Matter cop hating killer? Or, just more mindless hoping?
It seems you are ashamed of what those you support have wrought. Instead of trying to project your shame on others, maybe you should consider reevaluating your idiotic, failed ideology?
Well Bill BLM is only part of who he was
Black Panthers are very much social conservatives
They too hate abortion
Conservatives come in a wide variety of types YOU don’t get to say who is and who is not “approved” to be a conservative
He had very anti government views and his sovereign citizen stance was much like the Bundys and that bunch that took over the wildlife refuge
He too was trying to claim that the Federals had no jurisdiction over land his people claimed
How often do we see conservatives talking about the tyrannical US government
That ideology isn’t mine or as far as I can see liberal
Us liberals love our country we never talk about secession
Why is it that “moderate” conservatives never speak up about those extremist conservatives ??????
And of course liberals are quite optimistic especially about the next election
That was one item on a list of possibilities added to what Nanny G suggested in the previous post, wasn’t it? Both the Dallas shooter and the Batton Rouge shooter were veterans of the Middle East conflict, too. Should we add another possibility to the list? There were African Americans who were radicalized by the Vietnam War, as I recall.
@Greg: war especially a war that is not supported by a unified country has adverse impacts on those who fought it
Much higher rates of suicide and incarceration
Especially significant since now the military only accepts the top 10-20% but
When they come back they no longer are in as good shape as that bottom 80% with 50% now claiming permanent disability often PTSD
Those are some of the reasons recently discharged young vets have such high unemployment rates
@John: So, it is your contention that the New Black Panthers is a conservative group. Like Republicans. A group that supports less government intrusion (less social programs, more personal responsibility) and law and order. Long, as a supporter of the New Black Panthers (that stood with clubs to impede conservatives voting) is a conservative.
As a member of the Nation of Islam, he simply seeps conservatism from his very being. Nothing says “I’m a conservative” like being a member of a group that wants to slaughter white people and impose Islamic law.
Yeah, I see it now. Such vision. Such insight.
@Ajay42302: Please provide an example. I do not recall major increases in technology used by BLM from early 2000s.
@Bill: They must be taking too much LSD. Black panthers as a conservative social organization? Shows just how far out the left really is!
They are anti abortion anti gay anti womens rights
Those are all the same positions as social conservatives have
As do radical Muslims
You are truly slime to go there.
@John: You paint with a pretty broad and ignorant brush.
We are often most critical of others in what we find most lacking in ourselves
Bill do you find yourself painting with a broad brush?
Are all lefties really the same ?
@John: YOU certainly are. Anyone still guilty of supporting Hillary absolutely are.
Anyone that parrots the BLM lies about police shootings and police racism definitely are and they (you) all have the blood of dead, innocent cops on your hands.
However, to call someone a conservative because of antiabortion sentiments, despite them being anti-American Nation of Islam members? Now, that is a broad brush indeed.
You can not help to being over wrought with emotion in denouncing me
There are many types of conservatives
but the must numerous and loudest are social conservatives and much of that is sex based
ISIS has much more in common with the religious right than with the secular left
Until 3 years ago one of the party planks in Texas the largest red state called on returning sodomy to a felony
ISIS would certainly approve of that and abortion restriction
And remember ISIS are all fan boys of Jesus too, their theological dogma
proclaims He will return and lead them to victory after their near defeat
@John: Ha, Ha. These followers of the Nation of Islam can be considered liberal as well as they advocate the eradication of all other religions, full (Islamic) government control of everyone’s lives and have no problem with killing anyone that disagrees with them. Your typical liberal.
Yes, you can tell how much they love Christians by the preferential treatment they give them.
I swear, John, you should really read some of the stuff out loud to yourself before you hit “Post Comment”.
