Truth Revolt -- UPDATES: Dallas Morning News is reporting 7 officers have been wounded. Dallas police department says "two suspicious devices" were found at the scene. Fox News is reporting the fourth suspect has died from a self-inflicted gun shot wound.
Snipers positioned at a Black Lives Matter rally shot and killed five police officers and wounded six others. Three suspects are in custody and another is barricaded in a garage, trading gunfire with Dallas law enforcement.
The suspect is not cooperating and has promised to hurt more police officers, said police chief David Brown.
The gunfire broke out around 8:45 p.m. Thursday while hundreds of people were gathered to protest fatal police shootings this week in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban St. Paul, Minnesota. Brown told reporters the snipers fired "ambush style" upon the officers. Mayor Mike Rawlings said one member of the public was wounded in the gunfire.The rally was peaceful until shots were fired and the crowd scattered and ducked for cover.
Video footage from the Dallas scene showed protesters were marching along a street in downtown, about half a mile from City Hall, when the shots erupted and the crowd scattered, seeking cover.Story developing...
Brown said that it appeared the shooters "planned to injure and kill as many officers as they could."
The search for the shooters stretched throughout downtown, an area of hotels, restaurants, businesses and some residential apartments. The scene was chaotic, with helicopters hovering overhead and officers with automatic rifles on the street corners.
Blog Author's Comments -- Black Lives Matter is just a gang of do nothing protesters attempting to promote themselves as a group that cares but they only promote hatred and racism.
The other headline being circulated is what Obama had to say about what happened in Dallas. He, like clock work jumps on guns and gun control as one of the problems and he blames racial disparities for shootings involving cops. But, of course he would, his world revolves around racism and skin colors. He, the Democratic Party, and BLM have been contributing to an event like this by stoking the fire of racial conflict and cop hatred. Obama was elected because he is a black person. The voter’s motivation for promoting Barack Hussein Obama has been his race.
I'm curious how much more we will hear concerning the 'blame the guns' agenda when they are being used by black snipers targeting the police. The gun use among criminals in Chicago, and all the shootings and murders in that city, have been muted. I suspect it will be a matter of redirecting attention away from blaming the black shooters to blaming poverty and low paying jobs. His time in office is winding down but he will make the most of it by continuing to stoke the fires of racism against the law abiding citizens of the country.
This BLM protest last night was peaceful. And then the massacre began. And the protesters began to flee and expected the cops to protect them. And what are they there protesting? They're protesting the people they turn to for protection. The cops know that, by the way. They do not shirk from their responsibilities even in the face of this hypocrisy.
