Kentucky Cop-Killer Was a Supporter of Obama and Attended Mike Brown’s Funeral
Not only was Shanks a member of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, he was a big time fan of Barack Obama. His Facebook page has multiple pics of his devotion to a president I consider to be a radical racist. After killing a Kentucky Trooper in cold blood Sunday night, Shanks’ was himself taken out by the police in the ensuing manhunt. Looking into his political leanings is very enlightening. His Facebook handle was Jay MileHigh. That speaks to drugs, or seems to anyway. One picture calls for four more years with Obama and shows him as Superman. Another shows Michael Brown, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Shanks was into cop hatred big time and drugs. Is anyone surprised that such a sterling character idolized the likes of Barack Obama?
The Facebook page of Joseph Thompson Johnson-Shanks — the man who killed a Kentucky State Trooper Sunday night — shows that he was an Obama & Black Lives Matter supporter who attended Mike Brown’s funeral.
Kentucky trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder was murdered by Johnson-Shanks after a traffic stop. Following an all-night manhunt, Johnson-Shanks was killed by the police after he refused to drop his weapon.
Johnson-Shanks ’s Facebook page is posted under the name Jay MileHigh and the header image features pictures of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and Mike Brown. A previous cover photo was a photo of Pres. Obama depicting him as Superman.
Originally from Florissant, near Ferguson, Missouri, Johnson-Shanks’s Facebook account shared numerous news stories, images and videos discussing race, police brutality and the Mike Brown shooting, as well as articles like “Weed Protects You From Ebola.”
There is also a gallery of photos that indicate Johnson-Shanks attended Mike Brown’s funeral. The gallery includes a number of people performing the “hands up, don’t shoot” meme that a Department of Justice report showed was a fabrication.
As details emerge about Johnson-Shanks, his Facebook page makes it clear that the murder of the white police officer is another in a recent string of murders by black activists. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman in Houston, Texas, said of the execution of Deputy Darren Goforth, “We’ve heard Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter. Well, cops’ lives matter, too.”
Shanks was shot by police because he refused to surrender. He was an attendee of the Ferguson riots and Michael Brown’s funeral. He hung out with Al Sharpton’s crowd and had a long rap sheet. His homies on Facebook include: Barack Obama, Occupy Democrats, Cop Block, Million Hoodies For Justice, Justice For Mike Brown Leadership Coalition, The White House and Michelle Obama. Need I say more? Shanks’ Facebook page is no longer online, but you get the drift. He was a radical racist… he was a murdering terrorist as well. His hero was Barack Obama – I’m sure he could have been Obama’s son.
