In a video posted July 10, Long, as Setepenra, said he was speaking from Dallas after another black man had killed five police officers there.
"As a police officer, you feel the loss of another officer or officers very viscerally", says Seth Stoughton, an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law, who served as an officer in the Tallahassee, Fla., Police Department for five years.
One neighbor in Kansas City told KMBC that he's praying for the officer's family and also for Long's family.
"I can't explain what brought us here", she said. Washitaw Nation is a black nationalist movement that was once targeted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
'We all know about that other convention happening up in Cleveland today, ' Clinton said at the top of her remarks.
Long's online presence shows an author with a passion for motivating people, but his recent videos urged viewers to "fight back" against oppressors.
A day after the shooting, some details about the violent incident remained unclear. Not the death of Alton Sterling, who was killed two weeks ago while selling CDs in a parking lot, not anything.
US Attorney General Loretta Lynch condemned the attack "in the strongest terms possible". "Families are again mourning loved ones robbed from them by senseless violence". Police officers are again grieving for their friends. "This is why. Because we are up against a force that is not playing by the rules", Dabadie told the news conference.
On Sunday, Edmonson outlined just how quickly the event unfolded.
Reports indicated that at least one of the suspects was dressed entirely in black and was wearing a mask.
Initially, Dallas authorities said Johnson had a stockpile of bomb-making materials, though two officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity contradicted such claims recently.
Sunday was Long's 29th birthday.
Long served in the U.S. Marines, including a six-month tour of duty in Iraq. He was assigned to units in Miramar, Calif., and Okinawa, Japan, during his military career.
Nearly all of the culprits listed above were white, as was Terry Nichols, a sovereign citizen and domestic terrorist convicted of helping enact the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people and wounded 680 others. He also said that people often use the group's name without its permission.
The gunman who shot and killed three police officers at Baton Rouge in Louisiana had been "seeking out police", prosecutors have confirmed.
Simply put, sovereign citizens believe themselves to be above the law of the land.
In papers he filed in May 2015, Long also said he wanted to change his name from Gavin Eugene Long to Cosmo Ausar Setepenra as part of reclaiming what he described as his indigenous identity, according to Jackson County, Missouri, public records. His book contains a special thank you to "the all-powerful, most attractive, one and only Black woman". "When people you know begin to question your integrity you realize they don't know you at all", he wrote.
No relatives for Long could be reached by telephone.
He added: "The violence, the hatred, just has to stop", Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said. "We have to do better". "Obviously our community is hurting, and only through peace can we heal, and that's going to take meaningful dialogue".
In a Monday morning Facebook post, Louisiana State Police said they needed to withhold official confirmation of his name until they had positively ID'ed him through fingerprints. He was married and the father of two young daughters. Moreover, although leaders of the Nation have been charged with a number of crimes (they and other sovereign organizations - including majority white ones - often file false liens to harass their enemies with expensive legal fees) wanton, widespread violence against police does not appear to be one of them.
"And then we tell the police, 'You're a social worker, you're the parent, you're the teacher, you're the drug counselor.' We tell them to keep those neighborhoods in check at all costs, and do so without causing any political blowback or inconvenience". A case against Long for unpaid taxes was dismissed last month in Kansas City.
