Surprise! Cops Find Adolf Hitler Speech in Accused Racist Spree Killer’s Home
I found this follow up to my previous post not surprising at all, as right wing terror attacks continue.
In searching the home of Kenneth Gleason, whom authorities suspect of killing two African-American men and shooting at the home of an African-American family, investigators found at least one speech by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. After Gleason’s arrest last Sunday on drug charges, authorities had said, “there is a strong possibility [the killings] could be racially motivated.” Gleason was booked on two charges of first-degree murder.
At a press conference after Gleason’s arrest and booking, Interim Baton Rouge Police Chief Jonny Dunnam called the killings “brutal murders” and said that Gleason, “could have potentially created a [tear] in the fabric that holds this community together.” Racial tensions remain high in the city following the 2016 fatal police shooting of Alton Sterling. After someone reportedly called to complain about Sterling selling CDs outside a convenience store, police fired on Sterling who was in possession of, though not wielding, a handgun. At the time, Sterling was pinned to the ground and had been tasered several times.
Only days later, Gavin Eugene Long would shoot six Baton Rogue police officers, killing three. Through a series of YouTube videos, Long made it clear that he was seeking revenge for Sterling’s death. Long died in the incident.
