NSFW: At least 11 officers shot, 3 dead after attack at Dallas protest

http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/dalla...test/266881573

Quote:
DALLAS -- Dallas Police Chief David Brown has confirmed at least 11 police officers were shot and at least three were killed in an attack by two snipers in downtown Dallas at a protest of officer-involved shootings across the country on Thursday night.

Brown said in a news conference at around 11 p.m. they currently have a suspect cornered in the parking garage of El Centro College in downtown Dallas and are negotiating with him to surrender.

Brown initially said 10 officers were shot, but a short time later said an 11th officer had been shot in an exchange of gunfire with one of the suspects.

I'm not worried about more gun laws coming out of this.

What I am is furious. What I' assuming is that this is a violent BLM-related reaction to the recent shootings, not some ISIS guys. These BLM maniacs need to be challenged and leadership has to come from the top. Obama needs to stop his horsesh1t and get on TV and decry all of this. He needs to lay into BLM so hard they'll think he's the KKK.

Well get ready for more gun laws, they are already stating the rifles used were AR-15s with high capacity mags. I'm not just talking about California either.

As for this crime, its a home grown terrorist act. I'm not the prepper type, but I went over my go-bag first time in years.

Maybe it is them maybe its just a crazy guy who just lost it. I guess you can label anyone who supports their big picture a BLM member.

Lets not forget why this is happening though. This is the tragic result of a series of actions. I dont condone it at all. Its horrible. But i hope people can realize why this is happening. Constantly seeing guilty officers go free i guess will eventually cause some crazy guy to snap. Or maybe it was JUST a crazy guy who saw a perfect opportunity.

It's hard to make illegal what isn't a gun

Hold on why is no one immediately blaming the victims? I heard all those cops were racist anyway. Plus they were all carrying guns...

This. If cops are criminals then these people also need to be held accountable for their actions. Last time I checked, rioting and looting and destruction of property was all just as illegal as shooting someone. Yet they get away with it all the time. The media fuels this whole thing because they get tons of views by labeling cops as killers and these idiots as innocent victims.

See here's the thing. They were not guilty people that went free. They were not guilty as judged by a jury of their peers. This is how our legal system works.

In which case was an officer unjustly sentenced based on the determination of a jury? In EVERY one of these nationally covered cases, the evidence was overwhelmingly in favor of the officers. Brown, Martin, Grey... in each of those, there was virtually NOTHING with which to prosecute (I would say Zimmerman was the least black and white).

What we FORGET in this country is that these "killer cops" are given fair trials by impartial juries which make these determinations. In cases where the evidence has been overwhelmingly AGAINST the cop, they have been found guilty and punished for their crimes.

We need to get rid of this whole notion that ALL COPS ARE GUILTY and stop pandering it around the media to appease simple minded fools.

They want change? Run for office and do it.
