Gunman Gavin Long of Kansas City, Missouri, murdered three policemen on Sunday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The capital city, site of the shooting of Alton Sterling by police outside of a convenience store earlier this month, hosts the Louisiana State University Tigers, a perennial SEC football powerhouse that last posted a losing record in the last century. Players and coaches past and present reacted to the murder of the East Baton Rouge sheriff’s office deputy and two Baton Rouge police officers, which perhaps came as revenge for the earlier killing of an armed but not brandishing salesman of CDs, on Sunday.

Sunday’s murders of three policemen came ten days after a gunman in Dallas, Texas, killed five cops at a Black Lives Matter march.
