Louisiana cop killer left behind “a printout in his car from an Islamic holy book”


Long was probably finding justification for gratuitous violence, and there is plenty of that in Islamic holy texts.

“La. cop-killer left suicide note, Islamic verse, trail of rage,” Boston Herald, July 1, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The military veteran who killed three law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge last summer left behind a suicide note, a prayer from an Islamic holy book and an online trail of his rage against police.

Two days after a white police officer shot and killed a black man in Louisiana’s capital, Gavin Long searched the internet for addresses, phone numbers and other personal information belonging to the two officers involved in the July 5 shooting of Alton Sterling, a prosecutor’s report revealed Friday.

Less than two weeks later, the 29-year-old black man from Kansas City, Mo., traveled to Baton Rouge and ambushed law enforcement officers outside a convenience store and car wash near police headquarters.

Armed with a semi-automatic rifle that he legally purchased, Long fatally shot three officers and wounded three others on July 17 before tactical officers killed him, ending a gun battle that lasted nearly 14 minutes that Sunday morning….

He also left a printout in his car from an Islamic holy book that was mostly in Arabic
