A Missouri man suspected of fatally shooting a Kentucky state trooper Sunday was an active supporter of the "Black Lives Matter" movement who advocated against violence, a Facebook page shows.

Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, who was shot dead by police Monday morning, appears to have regularly posted videos and articles on police shootings under the pseudonym "Jay MileHigh," Vocativ reported.

On that Facebook page, photos appear to show the 25-year-old St. Louis man attending a funeral service for Michael Brown, who was shot dead by a Ferguson police officer in 2014. It also shows him attending local protests in the days and weeks after, the New York Daily News reports.

The BLM movement is openly calling for the deaths of LEO's.
I don't see, or hear, any plans from the DOJ to put an end to these
threats to Law Enforcement.
It appears that the Police are on their own....
Know your enemy and take whatever means are necessary to protect yourselves!!
The lives of those who would murder Police Officers DO NOT matter!!

Good riddance. All this b.l.m. is complete b.s. Another criminal organization.

These people need to start being treated as the TERRORISTS they are. I am sick and tired of the bleeding heart for the SCUM of the land and all the criminal activity they represent. It is time to stand for what it TRUE and what is RIGHT.....not the LIES of BLM.
