Re: Dallas snipers kill 3 Cops, injure 11

One time I got pulled over and the cops approached my car with their guns drawn. In retrospect, I feel very happy that I got out of that situation unharmed.

Damn CNN is showing a video now where you can hear the shooting. Unreal! That's more than just a few gunshots :O 4 officers killed now..

Racism is despicable, but so is this!

RTL news in The Netherlands has the video here too:

Re: Dallas snipers kill 3 Cops, injure 11

Fuck, this shit is devastating. Both for the lives lost and now this accident will propel and give ammunition to the motherfuckers to skip over the real issues of police brutality and institutional racism.

This one instance will now be used forever to silence legitimate problems and be used as a all-out defence every single time a cop does something wrong. I fucking hate the shooter's guts.

There is no anti-police movement period. Being a policemen has been the safest, it has been in decades.

There is warranted outcry and criticism against police brutality and the fact that America has turned into a police state.

Well, this killing is an anti-police movement. I can't see how killing people cause they wear an uniform would make a change for the good. It only makes things worse. Racism is a big problem in America and so is the gun law.

Interesting, no one tries to change anything in America. American politicians try so hard to change things in Poland and Romania and they are even aggressive sometimes when their advice is not respected, but they can't make a good change in their own country. It's easier to invade others, command others.

BLM

At least in Canada, where BLM just demanded that future Pride parades place a TOTAL ban on any police participation. Even gay cops must be turned away. And even more ridiculous, they demand that there should be no policing of the parade route, because they very sight of any cop is abhorrent to them.

Looks like the BLM agenda is the definition of anti-police. I would describe "anti" as being opposed to a group of people as a whole, without consideration of the actions of the individuals within the group. And also a complete disregard for the wishes of 99% of their fellow citizens.

Does that help your thought process?

5 Dallas Police Officers Killed by Snipers at Protest Against Shootings by Police

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/09/us...-shooting.html


DALLAS — Snipers killed five Dallas police officers and wounded seven others, along with two civilians, during a demonstration on Thursday night against police shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana this week, the authorities said.

It appeared to be the deadliest attack on law enforcement officers in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The shootings, only a few blocks from Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, transformed an emotional but peaceful rally into a scene of carnage and chaos, and they injected a volatile new dimension into the anguished debate over racial disparities in American criminal justice.

“There has been a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement,” President Obama told reporters Friday morning in Warsaw, where he was attending a NATO summit meeting, after speaking by phone with Mayor Mike Rawlings of Dallas.

Mr. Obama went on: “Police in Dallas were on duty doing their jobs, keeping people safe, during peaceful protests. These law enforcement officers were targeted, and nearly a dozen officers were shot. Five were killed. Other officers, and at least one civilian, were wounded. Some are in serious condition, and we are praying for their recovery.”

The Dallas police chief, David O. Brown, said that four people armed with rifles were believed to have carried out the attacks. They positioned themselves in triangulated locations near the end of the route the protesters planned to take.

The police took three people in custody. A fourth suspect died early Friday morning during a standoff with police in a garage in downtown Dallas at the El Centro community college, Mayor Rawlings said on Friday morning.

Re: 5 Dallas Police Officers Killed by Snipers at Protest Against Shootings by Poli

this is equally as bad as the police shootings but its also what happens when nothing happens to the police

so clean this mess up, throw everybody involved in prison and/or death penalty and then clean up the mess at the police departments, it should be looked at as a real enjoyable job to come in and fire everybody that needs to be fired country wide, like when the rock fired everybody in the walking tall movie
