Gavin Long's Last Words

Gavin Long turned 29 years old on July 17, 2016. On that day he killed three policemen in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The choice of location was not coincidental. Alton Sterling lost his life at the hands of police in that city and the murder was seen on video.

There is no reason to wonder why Gavin Long acted as he did. He explained himself quite clearly in this video. I wrote about Long in my Black Agenda Report column. It is very simple. When there is no justice there is no peace either.
