The Valdosta State University Police Department is asking for tips in locating Eric Sheppard, who led a flag protest on campus grounds last Friday.

At Odum Library at approximately 2:45 p.m., VSU Police were performing extra patrols as part of extra security in light of recent protests at the university. VSU police officers located a backpack on university property and inside the backpack a handgun was found. Unmistakable evidence has now been located by law enforcement linking the gun to Eric Sheppard. Based on that evidence, an independent judge has issued an arrest warrant for Eric Sheppard who has been recently been seen on television as a protester.

Although there was an extensive search for Sheppard by law enforcement, he was not located. He is now wanted and considered armed and dangerous. There is no evidence at this time to reflect that Sheppard is on university property and in fact, law enforcement now believes he is in hiding.

In the upside down world that is life on college campuses these days,  Air Force veteran Michelle Manhart, who had tried to rescue the American flag Sheppard’s group was desecrating, was hauled away in handcuffs and detained by campus security at Georgia University last week.

She admitted that she snatched the flag from the group of black radicals who had put the flag on the ground and were walking on it.

One member of the unnamed group told the Valdosta Daily Times they were desecrating the flag as “a symbol of our protest.”

“When a slave understands his situation and understands he doesn’t want to be in slavery, he does not respect or revere anything his slave master has put in front of him, a VSU student told the newspaper.

The group has been identified as a “Black Supremacy movement”  in the same vein as the New Black Panthers and is led by “full time college student/coach/community leader” and “young man with a plan for socioeconomic change,” Eric Sheppard Jr.

Via The Conservative Treehouse, here’s a picture of the “community leaders” as shared on their social media:

Here’s Sheppard  explaining his slightly convoluted views on race and — oh — admitting that he is “a terrorist toward white people.”

“We respect the rights of people to peacefully assemble and voice their opinions,” the school said in a statement after the protest. “Our primary concern is the safety of our students, faculty and staff and our ability to carry out our responsibilities to all our students on campus. We are monitoring the situation.”

The university thinks the offending person in that situation was the Air Force vet who tried to rescue an American flag. Meanwhile, the “young man with a plan,” Eric Sheppard Jr, is on the loose — and is considered armed and dangerous.
