[Ed. – Now, there’s a (bleeping) surprise.]
Over the weekend, Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder was trying to help Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks during a traffic stop. After discovering Johnson-Shanks’ license was expired, Ponder was shot dead. Eventually Johnson-Shanks was chased down by other officers and when he refused to drop his weapon, he was killed.
It turns out, Johnson-Shanks was part of the Black Lives Matter Movement, the bogus “hands up don’t shoot” narrative and attended the funeral of Michael Brown (who was killed by a police officer after attempting to take away his firearm in a patrol car) in Ferguson, Missouri last year. WeaselZippers has the exclusive:
He had a long criminal history. But perhaps significantly one arrest, for ‘interfering with an officer’ was on August 11, two days after Michael Brown was killed. Not only was he a Ferguson protester, but he went to Michael Brown’s funeral and burial in a limo the type usually reserved for family or close friends. In that limo he is riding with people from NAN, Al Sharpton’s group.
