A sophisticated ambush in Dallas has left 11 police officers shot with five of them dead. A protest march by “Black Lives Matter” was interrupted by gunfire that targeted police who were in the vicinity of the march.
There have been several ambush shootings of police by Blacks in recent years as the relationship between police and the Black community continues to deteriorate. If this latest shooting turns out to be another attack by Black militants against police, this will destroy relations between police and Blacks for years to come.
Contrary to what many liberals thought, the election of Barack Obama has made race relations worse, not better. Obama worsened things by taking the side of Black individuals, whose thuggish actions led to them being shot, namely Michael Brown, who had just robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, and Trayvon Martin, who violently attacked a Neighborhood Watchman, George Zimmerman after Zimmerman spotted Trayvon looking into the windows and backyards of homes in a neighborhood that had suffered a number of burglaries.
A CNN news article reports “Shooters killed five officers during protests against police in downtown Dallas, marking the deadliest single attack on law enforcement since September 11, 2001.”
“Gunshots rang out Thursday night during demonstrations against the shooting deaths of two African-American men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota.”
“A total of 11 officers were shot, Dallas police said. A standoff is underway as authorities try to negotiate with a suspect in a downtown garage.”
“It was the deadliest single attack on law enforcement since the 2001 terror attacks, when 72 officers died, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.”
“Here’s what we know:
— A total of 10 police officers were shot by snipers during the protests, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said. An 11th officer was shot during an exchange of gunfire with one of the suspects, authorities said.
— Brown said it’s unclear how many suspects were involved, but three people are in custody.
— Dallas police have been negotiating and exchanging gunfire with a suspect for hours at a parking garage in downtown.”
The latest news is that the gunman who was in a stand off with police has shot himself.
It may take several days for the authorities to tell us what that shooter was saying to the authorities and how many additional shooters were involved, but it seems likely that Blacks angry at police and stirred up by leftist politicians and the media have carried out this terrible assault on law enforcement.
