Five cops killed at anti-cop protest

NBC:

Five officers are dead — four Dallas police officers and one DART transit officer — after two snipers ambushed and opened fire on police at the end of a peaceful protest against nationwide officer-involved shootings Thursday night, officials say.

One suspect is dead, a Dallas police detective tells NBC 5 early Friday morning, and three other suspects were in custody in connection with the shooting.

President Barack Obama, who was in Poland for a NATO meeting, condemned the “vicious, callous and despicable attack.”

“I believe I speak for every single American when I say that we are horrified over these events and that we stand united with the people and the police department in Dallas,” the president said.

Reality check: Yeah, lay it on with a trowel, Obama. This stuff is catnip to the grievance industry you epitomize and define. I’d be interested in a study of how many people who take part in these protests conventionally work for a living.

It’s not a comment on the worth of a human being whether they have a job or not. But surely, long-term structural unemployment plays a huge role in the numbers of people available to pursue grievances. Back when the factories were running three shifts a day and you could score time-and-a-half for overtime or stats, it used to just be college students.

Other people were saving for their camper vans or their weddings or whatever.

Note: While some sources are not listing it as such, the event seems to have been a Black Lives Matter protest.

We’ll be seeing way more of this.

    Yes I’m sure that all the cops in America are grateful that Al Sharpton’s buttboy has their backs.

    This smells of a false flag operation MILES away! Watch as this will accelerate the gun-control agenda. Watch as this will create chaos, then order – order out of chaos. Watch… just watch. And nobody will do ANYTHING. That, is a promise. Until it is all too late.

    Happy NWO!

    The Black Community is being failed by THEIR leaders
    NOT
    The Police.

    The Police are the “buck stops here” when all else has failed.

    1) Sixties Generation vs Security Forces
    Sixties Generation- taught that “WE ALL HAVE A VOICE” & that it is our “RIGHT TO CHALLENGE AUTHORITY”
    Problem: by authority they mean ‘teachers, politicians, parents,judges etc
    …. NOT THE POLICE
    and this is where people come into conflict with Police.
    .
    Security Forces- are NOT….
    A PHILOSOPHICAL AUTHORITY BUILT FOR DISCUSSION
    .
    These men and women are there to
    -secure an environment
    -determine friend or foe
    -move the person(s) to the area where you do have the right to discuss (Investigation Area/jail/lawyer etc)

    YOU DO EXACTLY AS THE POLICEMAN SAYS … WHEN HE SAYS IT
    ……
    YOU DO NOT GIVE LIP BECAUSE ….
    THAT IS YOU NOT DEFERRING TO THE POWER WE PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN THE POLICEMAN TO TAKE YOU TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU CAN HAVE YOUR SAY
    .
    The Police are commissioned by us to do this
    .
    YOU want to discus with the people who give the orders
    .
    I have recently learned this myself
    Now Black leaders please get to task

    Some other Black Power group possibly connected to the BLM and Dallas shooting? The comments praising the killing of cops on Twitter etc. are disgusting.

    “I believe I speak for every single American when I say that we are horrified over these events and that we stand united with the people and the police department in Dallas,” the president said.

    He hates these types of press conferences. What he really warms to… no teleprompter needed… are press conferences where he can say “police acted stupidly.”

    Watching this guy in his last months of office I sometimes wonder if he isn’t in fact on our side. A better saboteur of liberalism you couldn’t ask for. It’s so over the top any more, a massive blow back is pretty much assured.
