A Youtube account operated by Gavin Eugene Long and discovered by The Daily Caller reveals key insight into what might have motivated the 29-year-old black man who killed three Baton Rouge police officers Sunday morning.
Videos on Long’s account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member. He also ranted against “crackers” and made references to Alton Sterling, the black man killed by police in Baton Rouge on July 5.
Other information about Long shows that the Kansas City native, who CBS reported was honorably discharged from the Marines in 2010, went by the name Cosmo Ausar Setepenra.
In the video, Long met with several men he seemed to not have known prior to their encounter. He promotes a book he wrote and discusses black liberation ideology.
“I wrote it for my dark-skinned brothers,” Long said of his book.
“If you look at all the rebels like Black Panthers, Huey P. Newton, Malcolm X…Elijah Muhammad, they was light-skinned. But we know how hard y’all got it,” Long continued.
Phone numbers on buildings in the video show that it was filmed in Baton Rouge.
CBS News reports Long ranted about protests and oppression on YouTube under the pseudonym Cosmo Setepenra.
“Let’s just go with the numbers, let’s go with the history, 100 percent of revolutions of victims fighting their oppressors, from victims fighting their bullies, 100 percent have been successful through fighting back, through bloodshed,” Long said in one video. “Zero have been successful just over simply protesting. It has never worked and it never will, you gotta fight back. That’s the only way a bully knows to quit, he doesn’t know words.”
Long continued, “If y’all want to keep protesting, do that, but for the serious ones the real ones, the alpha ones, we know what it’s going to take, it’s only fighting back or money that’s all they care about. Revenue and blood … nothing else. You’re in a world that’s run by devils.”
Long made the video in Dallas last week where five police officers were killed by Army veteran Micah Johnson.
CBS News and NBC News are reporting that Gavin Long, 29, of Kansas City, Missouri is the man who killed three officers and wounded three others in Baton Rouge, Louisiana today.
His motive is still not being reported.
