Police have identified the dead suspect in the Dallas police shooting incident as Micah Xavier Johnson. The 25-year-old man was a resident of Dallas. Johnson has no criminal record or ties to terror organizations, according to reports.

However, Johnson's Facebook profile told a different story. CBS News confirmed that this now deleted profile was Johnson's.

Before Facebook deleted the profile, which is standard practice for the social media site in the wake of one of its users committing a violent act, Independent Journal Review screen grabbed some of Johnson's alarming activity. Johnson’s Facebook activity dates as far back as 2011.

Here is the original profile photo from Johnson's Facebook profile.

The African American Defense League Page describes itself:

“It is time to visit Louisiana and hold a barbecue. The highlight of our occasion will be to sprinkle Pigs Blood!”

The page is vengeful on behalf of police killings in Louisiana and Minneapolis and held a rally this week.

The LA Times confirmed Johnson’s military history, but there was no mention of service on his Facebook page.

Johnson was killed after a prolonged negotiation with police. He threatened that officers would discover improvised explosives throughout the city. His stated goal was to kill white people, specifically white law enforcement.
