Cop killer was fan of Nation of Islam

NY Times:

Killer Targeted White Officers as Payback, Police Say

Micah Johnson, 25, was a military veteran who had served in Afghanistan, and kept an arsenal in his home that included bomb-making materials.

The killing of five officers was the kind of retaliatory violence that has been feared through two years of protests against deaths in police custody.
Most of the media have been trying to avoid his association with Islam.  That is a pattern under the Obama administration which has also pandered to the racial grievance meme, which this guy adhered too.   President Obama also has made it easier for snipers to get a shot at police by banning the use of MRAP's which had been given to police when they became surplus after the drawdown in Afghanistan.  If Dallas police had been able to use one they could have avoided the large loss of life.

While there have been some questionable police shootings of black men, they are still rare.  Only four percent of black homicides are at the hands of police.  The number of white homicides is around 12 percent at the hands of the police.  A black male is much more likely to die at the hands of another black male than of a cop, yet under President Obama, this racial grievance industry has gotten out of hand and fed into the anti-cop sentiment.

One of the worst things that has happened in the black community since the Ferguson grievance industry was embraced by Obama is that the murder rate and crime rate in black neighborhoods has skyrocketed as police pull back from community policing.  Obama's policies and that of the black grievance industry is actually getting more blacks killed and now more cops killed.

It has been a disaster for the black community.

The media needs to tell the truth about the effect of these policies and the association of this killer with Islam.
