Using the handle “Cosmo” on his YouTube channel, Gavin Long, the man tho murdered three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers on Sunday, revealed himself to be a person who advocated violence against those he considered bullies.
He was also a Nation of Islam member, although he said he wasn’t affiliated with that organization or any other — including the Islamic State.
I’m affiliated with the spirit of justice,” he said.
“I thought my own thoughts, I made my own decisions, I’m the one who gotta listen to the judgement. And my heart is pure,” Long said.

A video titled “protesting, oppression and how to deal with bullies,” recorded in Dallas three days after five police officers were ambushed and killed in the city, he made reference to Independence Day.
“Let’s go with history. One hundred per cent of revolutions – victims fighting their oppressors, victims fighting their bullies – 100 per cent have been successful through fighting back, through bloodshed,” Long said.
“Zero have been successful by simply protesting. It has never worked and it never will. You’ve gotta fight back; that’s the only way a bully knows to quit. He doesn’t understand words,” he continued.
“Independence Day was about George Washington and the founders fighting against their oppressor, Britain, and we celebrate that. We tell them they’re right. But when an African fights back, it’s wrong, but any time a European fights back against his oppressor he’s right,” Long claimed.
In a third video was recorded in Baton Rouge, just days before his rampage against law enforcement.
“I just got here I’m not really into the protesting. I do education because that’s our real freedom,” he is heard telling two men in the video. He called protesting “emotional” and “for the women.”
