Two weeks before Shannon Miles was charged with the execution-style killing of Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth on August 28, Black Panther members held an armed protest in front of Texas police warning them, “we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”
About 25 Black Panther members gathered in front of the Waller County Jail in Hempstead, Texas on August 12 to protest the arrest of Sandra Bland, and other “crimes against black people,” the Houston Chronicle reported.
Black Panther members had no problem confronting law enforcement that arrived on the scene of the protests to keep the peace. One of the leaders can be heard on video threatening police.
“You think we’re not pissed off a bunch about y’all killing our sisters? You think it’s okay? [We’re] the wrong n***ers to mess with. You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”
Breitbart Texas also covered the protests and captured more threats.
“The revolution is on… Off the pigs,” and “Oink Oink… Bang Bang!,” was the message leveled at Harris County deputies.
As reported by Breitbart:
Two weeks later, a black man, Shannon Miles, allegedly walked up behind Deputy Goforth and shot him in the head and back fifteen times, according to a Breitbart Texas report on Miles’ first court appearance.
The Waller County jail is located just over 30 miles from the Chevron station where Goforth was executed. The alleged killer, Shannon Miles, also attended the same university as Sandra Bland. It is possible that her arrest and subsequent suicide could have played a role in Miles’ possible motivation.
