Dallas 11 officers shot 4 killed

On news right now

He was apparently wearing tactical gear was hit by police but unphased

1 person of interest turned himself in

And a suspect that was in a fire fight with police was apprehended


Suspected to be retaliation over those two separate police killings of two suspects, in recent days

I wouldn't be surprised at all if one of the suspects is affiliated with BLM or pledges allegiance to them.

Fucking racist hypocrites

RIP to the ones who fell tonight

I can understand their anger, the recent videos of police killings were horrific, and honestly something like this was expected, there are so many psychopath shooters out there and militiamen, it was odd not seeing one of them come out and attack officers instead of schools... you can't really prevent something like this with so many crackpots and guns out there

The former police on TV are wanting to militarize the police, as if that would change anything

Remember Texas just became a open carry state. This guy could have been walking around with a bunch of guns all day and no one could do anything.





I guess you nedd 12 good guys with a gun.

maybe it'll help keep some of them alive? dodging sniper fire and dealing with IEDs is something the army trains its people to do. maybe officers should get the same training now.

A 5th officer has died. Needless to say, this turn of event is just tragic.

On the other hand, I am really quite surprised that an incident of this sort and at this scale didn't happen (in America) until now.

uhhhh

is it me or does this whole black lives matter feel like the black panthers?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Panther_Party

and we all know how that ended.

these groups just make segregation even more obvious.

they're all catalysts for violence. nothing more.









because we are mere mortals bound to learning by experiencing things for ourselves first hand, that's why history keeps repeating itself forever. and that's why nothing will ever change.

One of the suspects that they posted a picture of,who later contacted police, was walking around the street with a rifle, he isn't involved... Just some guy strolling downtown Dallas with a rifle... -_-

Seems like a standard military flanking technique. Shoot at one side of the pillar to get the other guy to look that way than wrap around and get him from behind.

i agree with Ulic's points.

The whole black lives matter, and the way people are approaching it seems so backward.

The way it's being handled it's making things way worse lol.. like wayyyy worse.

but i guess people have kind of run out of options as to what to do

so the suspect was killed by police. they used their bomb disposal robot, put a bomb on it, and detonated it when the robot got near the suspect


Quote:
Police in Dallas used a bomb disposal robot to kill a suspect after last night’s deadly shooting during a protest. In a press conference, Dallas police chief David Brown said that the robot was deployed after negotiations with the suspect failed. "We saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device on its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was," said Brown. "Other options would have exposed our officers to great danger. The suspect is deceased as a result of detonating the bomb."

It’s not entirely clear what the "device" in question was, although it may have been one of the small explosives that are normally used to safely detonate larger bombs. A previous statement, from Dallas’ mayor, said only that the suspect had died after police used explosives to "blast him out."

Police have used remote-controlled bomb disposal robots for other purposes; San Jose police talked a man out of suicide last year after delivering a phone and pizza to him via one. But this is the first known case where a department has described using one as a weapon, defense technology expert Peter Singer posted on Twitter, although he notes it's been used this way informally by US troops and insurgents. Unlike with the "killer robots" that have ethicists most worried, any decisions in Dallas were made clearly by humans — it’s much more like an advanced tool used in an unexpected way than anything artificially intelligent or designed for murder. Still, beyond the unmanned drones used in bombing strikes, it’s one of the first known times that a robot has been intentionally used to kill a human outside the battlefield.

the press conference clip is short but informative

a cop was just shot in Missouri at a traffic stop

Suspect in custody after officer shot in Ballwin - KMOV.com

Quote:
BALLWIN, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A police officer was shot in Ballwin Friday morning, according to the St. Louis County Police Department.


The officer was shot around 11:10 a.m. after he encountered the suspect, who was inside a vehicle, on New Ballwin Road, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said. After encountering the suspect, there was some sort of interaction between the two that led to the officer being shot.

Following the shooting, the suspect fled in a Blue Ford Taurus with temporary Illinois plates. An officer with the St. Louis County Police Department saw the suspect vehicle, at which time the suspect jumped from the vehicle on Burgundy Lane and ran a street over to Valley View, where he was taken into custody without any resistance, according to Chief Belmar.

A pistol was recovered from the scene, police said.
Chief Belmar did not disclose any information about the officer’s injuries, but said he took a “hard hit.”

Skyzoom 4 was over the scene on Burgundy Lane around 12:30 p.m. when a handcuffed man was being placed in the back of a police vehicle. Information about that man has not been released.

No other details have been made available.

How can you feel safe as a black person in Eastern USA right now? 2 Police murders with zero resistance or reason. Anyone remember Rodney King? Shits about to blow up bad in 'Murica and they have no way to stop it. There are more people with guns than police so if those people decide to "make a stand" what are they gonna do? Call the military? Almost seems that's what America has been driving towards for a long time. Military State.


Berz out.

Exactly what I am thinking. Esp with the Philando Castile case, the girlfriend's story is darn near 100% plausible (and hence believable), plus the guy has a solid reputation in his community. If that kind of people are getting shot and killed by the police for following police orders, it really makes the black population think wtf they'd have to do, and how much backwards they'd have to bend over to stay alive and not get shot by the police. And then it kind of becomes a fight or flight situation, and some will invariably choose the option to fight.
