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.”
