Boyce Watkins, PhD. in finance and Director of the Black Wealth Boot Camp, took to YouTube to defend his mentorship of Gavin Long. On Sunday, July 17, 2016, Long is alleged to have ambushed several Baton Rouge Police Officers, killing three and seriously injuring another one.
Initial news reports indicated that Gavin Long was a follower of several Black Nationalists groups. The logical conclusion of this report was that Gavin Long was radicalized by Black Nationalists, which led to the assassination of Baton Rouge Police Officers.
