Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, Suspect in Kentucky Trooper’s Shooting Death was a ‘Black Lives Matter’ Advocate in St. Louis, MO
So there is no correlation between ‘Black Lives Matter’ and murdering of police, eh?
How ironic, Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, the suspect in the fatal shooting of Kentucky state trooper was an active supporter of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement according to his Facebook page, under the pseudonym ‘Jay MileHigh’. A supporter of the faux-movement, ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot’ did just that when he murdered Kentucky state trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder. Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, the man who gunned down Kentucky state trooper also attended Michael Brown’s funeral. Imagine that. This is the result of what happens when you glorify a punk who robs a convenience store and then attempts to assault a police officer and attempts to take away a cop’s gun.
Oh, and its supposed to be a non-violent movement at that. Sure it is. In the end, Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks died from suicide by police as the suspected murderer failed to listen to police after being cornered and lower his weapon.
Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks – ‘Black Lives Matter’ Advocate
A Missouri man suspected of fatally shooting a Kentucky state trooper was an active supporter of the “Black Lives Matter” movement who advocated against violence, a Facebook page shows.
Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, who was shot dead by police Monday morning, appears to have regularly posted videos and articles on police shootings under the pseudonym “Jay MileHigh,” Vocativ reported.
On that Facebook page, photos appear to show the 25-year-old St. Louis man attending a funeral service for Michael Brown, who was shot dead by a Ferguson police officer in 2014. It also shows him attending local protests in the days and weeks after.
In several photos, Johnson-Shanks is seen with his hands raised in the air with the caption, “hands up don’t shoot” — a phrase that originated from the unarmed teen’s death.
“Some of y’all don’t understand the more violence that occurs is less justice for Mike Brown the focus should be on him,” he posted on a “Justice for Mike Brown” Facebook page on Aug. 14, 2014, one week after Brown’s death.
The Facebook page has been since taken down
There is one less cop killer on Earth as Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks was shot and killed following a manhunt for the murderer. I guess the Black Lives Matter folks will protest his death as well.
The Kentucky State Patrol’s Special Response Team found the armed suspect in a wooded area close to I-24, the agency says.
“Johnson-Shanks refused verbal commands and aimed the weapon at the Troopers. An SRT Trooper discharged his agency issued weapon striking Johnson-Shanks,” police say. “He was transported via ambulance to the Caldwell Medical Center in Princeton, KY for treatment where he later succumbed to his injuries.”
