Surprise: Latest Alleged Cop Killer Was Part of Violent Black Lives Matter Movement

Two weeks ago I wrote a piece titled, Exposing The Black Lives Matter Movement For What It Is: Promotion of Cop Killing. In the piece, I pointed to evidence of cop killer glorification and rhetoric used by the movement promoting the execution of police officers. After all, "pigs in a blanket" is a heinous description of dead police officers in body bags. You can read the piece in full here

Over the weekend, Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder was trying to help Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks during a traffic stop. After discovering Johnson-Shanks' license was expired, Ponder was shot dead. Eventually Johnson-Shanks was chased down by other officers and when he refused to drop his weapon, he was killed. 

It turns out, Johnson-Shanks was part of the Black Lives Matter Movement, the bogus "hands up don't shoot" narrative and attended the funeral of Michael Brown (who was killed by a police officer after attempting to take away his firearm in a patrol car) in Ferguson, Missouri last year. WeaselZippers has the exclusive: 

He had a long criminal history. But perhaps significantly one arrest, for ‘interfering with an officer’ was on August 11, two days after Michael Brown was killed. Not only was he a Ferguson protester, but he went to Michael Brown’s funeral and burial in a limo the type usually reserved for family or close friends. In that limo he is riding with people from NAN, Al Sharpton’s group.

Meanwhile, 25 police officers have been killed this year. Many of them have been executions and ambushes.
