Re: Black Lives Matter Takes Over Liberal Meeting

Local news now saying 10 officers shot, possibly 3 dead. Unconfirmed reports saying possibly 3 snipers gunned them down. Still active at this time.

Yeah the latest is 3 officers dead, 3 in critical, 4 injured. The police chief called them 2 "snipers" from an elevated position. A witness said the shots came from a parking garage across the street.

Re: Black Lives Matter Takes Over Liberal Meeting

Chief of police says they're negotiating with one of them and they possibly have a bomb planted somewhere.

Re: Black Lives Matter Takes Over Liberal Meeting

Now gunfire exchange with the suspect. Sounds like he wants to go down shooting.

Damn, ATF SWAT heading towards the garage area. Looks like a dozen at least.

Yeah I just heard that too. We'll see. He did go talk to officers so perhaps he can get it cleared up.

Re: Dallas Police Shootings

Surprised the main networks aren't covering it... Fox and CNN are pretty much worthless right now as well. It would be nice to hear from the President tonight, even though it's after midnight.

Re: Dallas Police Shootings

The news says that there are no suspects in custody and that they are wanting to speak to the man in the picture. This is horrible.

Edit: Sounds like he just turned himself in.

Re: Dallas Police Shootings

A lot of anger in the streets. I'm a little surprised this doesn't happen more often... but I'm glad it doesn't.

The person in the photo of the suspect has turned himself in.

Police were requesting that all citizens clear downtown streets as the manhunt continues.

I hope this incident can somehow unite citizens and the good police officers that work in the interest of protecting them.

Re: Dallas Police Shootings

Looking forward to seeing President Obama on TV tomorrow decrying this violence. It would be the best course of action to try and mend the growing hatred of police in this country.

Re: Dallas Police Shootings

Now they are saying that there are 4 people total. One of them is a female and the others are males with camo duffle bags.
