Hours before fatally shooting two Kissimmee, Florida police officers, prosecutors say Everett Glenn Miller posted a status update on Facebook under the name Malik Mohammad Ali, saying "Am I the only one. [Expletive] a Cop..Racist [Expletive]."
The social media post was evidence that Miller's view of law enforcement and his community had dramatically changed after his retirement from a two-decade military career in the Marine Corps, Ocala-based State Attorney Brad King told jurors Friday at the Osceola County Courthouse.
"He says he doesn't like cops much, in polite language," King said. "This is the clearest one that expresses what Mr. Miller thought and goes along with what he did. That is the reason why you should find him guilty of two counts of first-degree murder."
