Two Police Shot in Dallas

Postby Jumalariik » Thu Jul 07, 2016 8:14 pm

Indeed, unfortunately, two police officers were shot at a protest over the death of Alton Sterling. Hopefully the officers will live.

What do you all think of this? Is it a sign of times ahead, an anomaly, or something else?

Personally, I think it's very sad to see police officers shot, and I was very surprised that there was no thread on it earlier. Not much else to say at the moment, as the story is not over.

Two shooters, and 3-6 officers shot at the last news I saw.

Well, this violence is in no way necessary. Peaceful protest is the way to go.

It was a peaceful protest till the two shooters open fired in a large crowd toward the cops.

They're probably like that psycho who shot 2 cops in a cruiser after Eric Garner died.

Delusions of striking a blow for black people.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

Goddammit.

Without trust in the officers, these kinds of things are going to happen. Granted, even in a perfect situation where good people and police get along just fine, regardless of color, there will be criminal incidents. But at rallies and protests over incidents that are in question due to officer shootings of civilians, in the current situation we have? I hate this. I absolutely hate this.

The witness couldn't say what was going on, everyone was in a panic. All we know is three officers have been shot, injuries stated, no definite report on what the damage is, the rally was peaceful and respectful right up until someone opened fire. They say they have a suspect cornered, and talks are in progress. Other than that?

Guess we'll have to see.

I hope the officers will recover. I hope no one else was shot. I hope they get it all sorted out, and that no one else is hurt while they get this sorted out, and cleaned up. We've got enough fear and hate and all the rest to last us, folks. We certainly don't need any more.

If this is an attempt to "retaliate" against the police then that would not be terribly surprising, I suppose. America seems to have a bit of a cultural fascination with the idea of taking up arms against a tyrannical government. Take people inclined towards that mode of thought and give them another black man shot by the police, well, they'll put two and two together and here we are.

Or maybe it'll turn out to be something else entirely. *shrug*

You're surprised there wasn't a thread earlier about something that only just happened?

Civilians shooting Police, Police shooting Civilians. The Police don't feel safe. The Civilians don't feel safe.

There are many reasons behind this dynamic that exist within the United States, but overall the reality I feel of the situation is that they aren't being resolved in both the interior and exterior forces within both the civilian populace and the law enforcement. Even in light of numbers, the people don't trust the police to actually be a force for safety and protection, and the police don't trust the people to not be hostile or endangering towards them, and thus the cycle continues. Its a cycle of violence, and it requires immediate action to be addressed via a long-term policy plan.

I would be lying if I said I was confident that such a plan would be enacted, or even is in the works, within the United States, and can only see this situation getting worse.

So they were shot by snipers? For some reason, I seriously doubt these were BLM protestors. In fact, I find it impossible.

This is really disturbing, especially given the reports that they were snipers in tactical gear.

I'm in Dallas, so I am watching everything locally.

Three dead and ten shot. Theres strong indication the shooters were snipers with high caliber semi to full autos at high ground. They don't seem to be related to the protestors.

I will post more once I am at the computer but please, as a local, I recommend everyone to remain calm.

It's extremely tragic that this happened.

But I hope that these deaths do not dominate the news cycle/national conversation. I hope that the black people that have been murdered by police this week aren't forgotten and ignored because of this.
Because that would just prove that black lives matter. It's extremely tragic that these police were murdered in cold blood it seems, but we need to ensure that people stay focused on and angry at these events of police brutality and state murder.

Apparently it was a sniper that shot at 10 officers, three dead.

Apparently the snipers shot from an "elevated position" in the rally. The entire thing is a tragedy, but also very unusual. Snipers in elevated positions aren't remotely what I would expect from BLM.

WE don't know the description of these snipers folks, so let's not jump to confusions.

Latest report is 3 officers dead, 10 shot all told. http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Protes ... 84431.html

There will be people who say the cops deserved it. That aside some will probably claim it is a false flag attack.

For the most part, the (mis)behavior of public service employees like teachers and police are the result of dictates by their unions who heavily influence how they are trained and educated.

Unfortunately, years of representation to minimize litigation against a multitude of issues has resulted in a Byzantine codex of indoctrination that now pretty much defies common sense and wisdom, and the cracks in the facade are becoming glaringly more apparent as abhorent and abberent behaviors amongst public servants intensifiy and increase in recent days.

2 snipers actually in full tactical gear.

We don't know who the snipers are or what they wanted. SWAT is negotiating with the second sniper.
