The Facebook of Dr. Michael Mammone’s alleged killer reveals details about his possible motivations for committing such a gruesome crime in broad daylight.
Around 3 p.m., on February 1, in Long Beach, California, a white Lexus plowed into Dr. Michael Mammone from behind while he rode his bicycle in the bike lane about a mile from where he worked as an ER doctor at Providence Mission Hospital.
The driver, identified by police as Vanroy Evan Smith of Long Beach, then exited the vehicle and stabbed Mammone multiple times before bystanders restrained him.
When deputies arrived, Mammone was suffering from multiple injuries and was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. There was no known connection between Smith and Mammone, according to a press release by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspect identified as 39-year-old Vanroy Evan Smith, was arrested, had past ties to both a sect within the Rastafari movement, the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

ABC7 spoke with a neighbor, who declined to speak on camera, who claimed to hear Smith yelling racial slurs and talking about white privilege. The Sheriff’s Office said its deputies did not hear this, however, this would have likely occurred before they arrived on the scene, and at the time of ABC7’s reporting, the race of the victim and perpetrator had not been identified.
Smith was a Long Beach accountant who owned his own firm, which he shut down shortly before the assault on Mammone.
His ex-wife, Marla Anette Hart, told The New York Post she recently feared for her own safety. His former father-in-law told The Post that a few days before the assault, police had been sent to her house to perform a wellness check involving Smith and that Smith had a history of “issues.”
Smith had purportedly closed himself off in the days leading up to the assault and told friend and former client Jo A. Gilliam he was okay but “going through some things.”
Heavy.com reported that Smith’s Facebook page revealed his ties to a sect within the Rastafari Movement called the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
Britannica defines the Rastafari Movement as a “religious and political movement, begun in Jamaica in the 1930s and adopted by many groups around the globe, that combines Protestant Christianity, mysticism, and a pan-African political consciousness.” On his Facebook, Smith suggested on November 4, 2020, that he was born in Jamaica.
He stated that his involvement in The Twelve Tribes led him “to take a look at Haile Selassie, the Ethiopian King whose Christian faith has always been fully on display; Marcus Garvey and the Negro Improvement Association; then Rastafarians, the group who ran ahead with Marcus Garvey’s teachings, and hail Haile Selassie as God.”
Although Smith posted frequently about his daughters, Gilliam told The Post that she was under the impression he hadn’t talked to them in a while.
In 2020, he frequently reposted NowThis News, a progressive social media-focused news organization. He also reposted former President Barrack Obama’s endorsing then-presidential candidate Joe Biden.
After George Floyd’s death, Smith posted frequently in support of the protests led by the violent Black Lives Matter Movement.
On June 9, 2020, he reposted a video from Lecrae—a Christian rapper who has frequently criticized America and white Christians. In the video, Lecrae suggested black Americans are in the same position as the Hebrews in Babylonian captivity, stating: “Psalm 137, they were angry with the Babylonians for the oppression and the torture they were put through. They were angry. We should be angry.”
If Smith murdered Mammone, and did so out of racial motivations as ABC7’s eyewitness testimony suggests, it would not be a first.
In June 2020—in the wake of the media’s anti-white, anti-America hysteria—a Wisconsin driver, Daniel Navarro, confessed to intentionally hitting motorcyclist Phillip Thiessen, a police officer and former Marine, killing him. Navarro told investigators he believed all Harley drivers were white racists and just assumed the rider had to be white.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has not yet released a motive for the attack.

where are comments from the deceased’s family, co-workers at the hospital? What is the background of the man killed? Where is the assailant now, have charges been filed and what is the sentence in CA for deliberately killing a bicyclist with your car?
February 5, 2023 at 3:16 pm
He didn’t kill him with his car, he hit him with his car, then got out of his car and killed him, what shouting racist remarks at him…

Are you kidding he probably didn’t spend the night in jail.
February 5, 2023 at 4:23 pm
He was detained at the site by bystanders, arrested by Orange County Sheriffs, booked and NOT released. He remains in jail and will until trial

The twelve tribes, this animal is nothing but a murdering POS. 10 years ago he would be on trial for murder no questions asked. He is a disgusting , nasty, scum bag. He may belong to a tribe, but not from Israel. He crawled out of the belly of the beast. The Blacks now want , all black dorm rooms, seating areas, streets , on and on. Great , the opposite of what they went nuts over in the 50’s, I say okay, but then the whites get the same. Remember this, the whites outnumber you by a lot. Grow up! I bet MLK is spinning in his grave over what BLM and these putrid sects are doing.

Anyone want to venture a guess on whether there will be “hate crime” charges filed against Smith? The answer is “no.” Eric Holder made it clear when the Hate Crimes legislation was passed that it would only be enforced one way — against white and straight people. How is that Constitutional? You know, equal protection of the laws and all that. Holder said that the law would only be enforced one way based on the history of crimes. Really? Black on white crime stats — white women are 765 times more likely to be raped by a black man than a white man raping a black woman. 53% of all murders committed by 6% of the population (black males). 55% of all other violent crimes committed by 6% of the population (you guessed it, black males). FBI stats available seven years ago.

We may outnumber them but wars are not won with numbers but with focus & commitment. They have it we don’t. We keep whistling past the graveyard thinking this is just a passing fad. It’s not & it’s getting worse.

agree! Deport all anti-White believers , all AntI-USA BELIEVERS, ALL anti-Christian believers, regardless of their color, and banish them from USA forever.

Biden and the Democratic party encourage this kind of attitude among minorities.

Author Jacob – the attack did NOT occur in Long Beach (that is where the perp lived). It occurred in Laguna Niguel at Crown Valley and PCH, on the immediate border with Dana Point and South Laguna. It was directly in front of the gate to Monarch Bay – the former home of the late Nicole Brown Simpson.

You mean he is a worthless murderer who hides behind an excuse. Put him to death.
February 5, 2023 at 5:51 pm
Ah, black supremacy is alive and well in the Democrat party.
February 5, 2023 at 6:08 pm
I just might have to pay this n1gger a visit. You want a race war? No problem. I’ve killed n1ggers before, now there’s another easy target.
February 5, 2023 at 6:14 pm
I had read the victim was an ER doctor. I don’t think that is mentioned here. Statistically in large metropolitan cities the majority of patients especially victims of violence are black. As such the victim most likely helped many blacks. The social warrior just deprived his community of someone who dedicated his life to helping others live. He murdered in the name of hatred/social justice. It’s actually antithesis of poetic justice.

This occurred LAGUNA BEACH/DANA POINT, not Long Beach.
February 6, 2023 at 12:59 pm
If this would have been a white guy running down then stabbing a tree swinger ,,,,,,,,, the FAKE and TRASHY liberal opinion networks would still be talking about it today. Asswipe , ambulance chasing , vine climbers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would be standing at a podium with lawyers , with their nappy hair , flapping the lips claiming racism !!!! This inbred spearchucker deserves 3500 volts !!!

This thug needs to be charged with first degree murder and get the death penalty. This was intentional.
