Baton Rouge Cop Killer Posted Video Saying Oppression Must be Fought

The man who police say shot and killed three police officers in Baton Rouge today is a U.S. Marine veteran who served in Iraq named Gavin Eugene Long.

He is the [**second veteran this month**](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/07/08/graphic-downtown-dallas-cops-death-recorded-long-distance-video/) to use his military training to kill cops as payback for the way they have been killing citizens.

Today was his 29th birthday. Louisiana police say they shot and killed him.

Long, who went by [**Cosmo Setepenra**](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq-7gsAWRK0zFUklum6Wapw) on YouTube, posted a video on July 10, 2016 after the Dallas police shootings where he speaks about fighting against oppression through bloodshed.

In the video, which was posted six days after Independence Day, he speaks about how the United States celebrates how they fought against their oppressors.

“But when an African fights back, he is wrong,” he says. “But every time a European fights back against his oppressor, he is right.”

“One hundred percent of revolutions, of victims fighting their oppressors, from victims fighting their bullies, one hundred percent have been successful through fighting back, through bloodshed,” he says.

“Zero have been successful over simply protesting. It doesn’t, it has never worked and it never will. You’ve got to fight back. That’s the only way a bully knows to quit, he doesn’t know words. He doesn’t understand words, I promise you. He doesn’t understand protests.”

He described himself as a “freedom strategist” [**on Twitter**](https://twitter.com/ConvosWithCosmo) where he tweeted the following Saturday night, only hours before police say he walked down a street in Baton Rouge armed with a rifle, drawing attention of police before he killed three.

He also has books available on [**Amazon**](http://www.amazon.com/Cosmo-Setepenra/e/B016QV5AQK) where he writes about his version of spirituality.

In the second video below, he explains that he is not affiliated with any group. That he is affiliated with the “spirit of justice, nothing more, nothing less.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
