    Four officers fatally shot during police protest in downtown Dallas

    Four officers fatally shot during police protest in downtown Dallas


    A massive manhunt is underway for at least two snipers who Police Chief David Brown said ambushed police, striking 10 officers and a civilian from an elevated position. The chief said they are also investigating information that the suspect may have planted a bomb in the downtown area.

    “They planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement officers as they could,” Brown said at a news conference.

    I think the demonstration provided a diversion so the bad guys could perform their ambush without being noticed 'til it went down. It could've been an anti-bowling demonstration.....it didn't matter which kind.

    People trying to instigate a race war. The only result will be more mistrust and cops will be less likely to police black neighborhoods. It will be like Baltimore and Ferguson all over where the cops will just stay out and let anarchy reign. Then of course the people will whine about needing police protection.

    They might have a legitimate case to blame the police in the Mn. shooting though ---- time will tell.

    Did you see them stand up John Conyers this morning? Reminded me of weekend at Bernies. He was preaching stricter gun control laws. Yeah, the bad guys won't have any guns then. Right?

    NYPD officers speak out against predatory policing. we want the law applied equally not just the poor colored parts of town. part of the problem is policing for profit be it fines, or keeping for profit prisons full.

    Your right. Guess it's just institutional racism. But they don't call it that either.

    Each case has to be looked at separately.....nobody should be grouping them.

    Mn shooting looks very questionable but as always we don't know all the facts. The Baton Rouge shooting was a lot different but is usually lumped in together with Mn. when mentioned.
