‘Kill More Cops’ Graffiti Mural Appears on Major L.A. Freeway

A reader has e-mailed Breitbart News an image showing a graffiti mural reading “KILL MORE COPS” along Interstate 5 in Los Angeles, a major commuting route in the San Fernando Valley just north of Burbank and Hollywood.

According to an e-mail from the reader, who took a photo of the graffiti in the midst of traffic, “It is right at the Sheldon exit, northbound side of the 5 freeway near van nuys CA. I have seen it for the last 3 days but not sure when it was first up. It is on a fence next to another wall.”

The graffiti comes in the wake of several murders of police officers, associated with the Black Lives Matter movement. Earlier this month, five Dallas Police Department officers were killed by a sniper at a Black Lives Movement rally. A week ago, three more officers were killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Baton Rouge had seen intense protests after police shot and killed a black man, Alton Sterling, who had allegedly been threatening a homeless man at a convenience store, and who had been wrestled to the ground at the time he was shot, where he allegedly reached for his gun as officers tried to subdue him.

Los Angeles has a particularly sensitive history with hostility toward police, following the videotaped beating of a black motorist, Rodney King, in 1991 and the subsequent riots in 1992 when officers were acquitted. Recently, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has faced scrutiny and protest over several deaths at the hands of police, including that of Ezell Ford and Redel Jones.

Obama said recently that one of the great things about America is the ability for individuals to protest, and it can sometimes get “messy” and “controversial” but because of the ability to protest and engage in free speech, America over time has gotten better.

ThinkProgress LGBT Editor Zack Ford Defends Cop Killings

Zack Ford, an editor for ThinkProgress‘ LGBT section, believes it’s “no surprise” that cops are being killed in retaliation to past incidents.

In a chain of tweets, Ford tried to explain today’s events in Baton Rogue and past police killings. After calling the murders of police officers “retaliation,” he went on to say he “abhors all violence” in the same train of thought. The original tweet is now deleted, but can still be accessed via internet archive services.

As the tweets went on, Ford started to backpedal, perhaps realizing that a line has been crossed. He lamented that “a lot of people think I support murder now.”

Militant Black Gun Club Founder on Baton Rouge Cop Killings: ‘Natural Law to Take Up An Armed Approach’

Yafeuh Balogun, the co-founder of a radical black gun club that espouses Black Panther ideology, says he is not surprised by the deadly shooting of police officers in Baton Rouge on Sunday.

Blaming events like the shooting on a “lack of justice,” Balogun warned those purportedly angry at what he claimed was “police terrorism” have grown frustrated with legal forms of protest and activism, which he complained did not accomplish their aims.

Balogun stated “We’ve felt that it is a natural law, if you will, before people would begin to take up an armed approach against injustice.”

Balogun was speaking in an interview set to air Sunday night on this reporter’s talk radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and News Talk 990 AM in Philadelphia.

Balogun is co-founder of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, a black militant gun group named after Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton.

According to reports, Micah X. Johnson, who carried out a deadly shooting against police officers two Friday’s ago, “liked” the Huey P. Newton Gun Club on Facebook.

Cleveland Police Officer on Baton Rouge Shooting: Obama ‘Has Blood on His Hands’ (Video)

Sunday on Fox News Channel’s breaking news coverage of the shootings in Baton Rouge, LA, that has killed three officers and injured three more, Cleveland police officer and Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said President Barack Obama has “blood on his hands.”

Loomis said, “The president of the Untied States validated a false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public — validated with his very divisive statements. And now we see an escalation. This has got to end. We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this. I don’t care if it’s clergy, I don’t care who it is, but somebody has got to step up and put an end to this because it’s the false narrative and very influential people that are politicizing the false narrative. Absolutely insane that we have a president of the United States and a governor of Minnesota making the statements that they made less than one day after those police involved shootings. And those police involved shootings, make no mistake, are what absolutely has triggered this rash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across this country. It is reprehensible. And the President of the United States has blood on his hands and it will not be able to come washed off.”

Terror: Truck Crashes into Crowd Celebrating Bastille Day, At Least 80 Dead

At least 80 people , including 10 children, have died and dozens were injured during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France after a truck ran into a large crowd.

Police are treating the incident as “an attack” and French President François Hollande declared it an “undeniable” terrorist attack.

The suspect has been named locally as a 31-year-old French-Tunisian called Mohamed Lahouaiej Boisvert. Witnesses claim he shouted “Allahu Akbar” – which means God is greatest in Arabic – before opening fire on officers.

Update 1521 BST (1021 EST)

Breitbart Jerusalem says that a top Salafist jihadist based in the Gaza Strip has claimed more “brothers” are planning attacks.

Abu Alayna Al-Ansari, an IS loyalist, said he believes the attack was a “classic lone wolf” operation, inspired by the jihadi Abu Mohammad al-Julani, the IS spokesperson, who called upon young Muslims from around the world to carry out attacks such as Thursday night’s.

Ansari is a well-known Gazan Salafist jihadist allied with Islamic State ideology. In previous interviews, Ansari seemed to be speaking as an actual IS member, repeatedly using the pronoun “we” when referring to IS and even seemingly making declarations on behalf of IS.

Hillary Honors Dead Cops by Ann Coulter

There’s a big audience for Hillary’s blame-the-victim approach. Even as the Dallas massacre was happening, and for the next 24 hours, Twitter was ablaze with tweets congratulating the mass murderer for killing “pigs”.

The day after a racist monster shot 12 white policemen in Dallas, murdering five of them, in the worst mass shooting of policemen in history, Hillary Clinton went on Wolf Blitzer’s show and blamed the cops.

Asked what she would do to stop police from being targeted for murder, she said: “Remember that, just 24 hours before, we had a killing, with the loss of life in Baton Rouge, in Minneapolis.” As president, she said, she would “have national guidelines about the use of force by police, especially deadly force.”

She couldn’t take ONE DAY to talk about the cops who were murdered in Dallas?

The nicest thing Hillary could think to say about the dead cops was that they were shot while performing their most sacred duty: protecting Black Lives Matter protesters hurling abuse at them. “Those police officers were protecting a peaceful protest, a protest of authority, that is a hallmark of America.”

No matter how Wolf Blitzer framed the question about the cold-blooded murder of five cops, Hillary would not stop lecturing the police for their lack of sensitivity. “It’s going to take a lot of training on the part of our police officers to get back into the communities, to understand what’s happening in neighborhoods.”
