Dallas police shooting

At least 2 heavily armed snipers shot and killed 5 Dallas police officers and wounded 6 more at a peaceful rally in downtown Dallas, TX on Thursday.

4 Dallas police officers and 1 DART officer were killed in another terrorist attack that shocked the nation.

Dallas police shooting

6 officers are fighting for their lives in area hospitals.

Armed with high-powered rifles, the snipers fired on the officers from rooftops and a parking garage after a peaceful protest march ended in downtown Dallas Thursday evening.

3 suspects, including one female, are in custody and a 4th suspect died after a police robot detonated a bomb during a tense 3 hour standoff with police inside a parking garage.

Before he died, the sniper threatened the lives of officers, saying, "the end is near." He claimed there were bombs planted all over Dallas.

A Dallas police official later said no bombs were found after two sweeps of the downtown area.

Officials say the suspects in custody are not talking or cooperating with police.

Dallas police shooting

According to the Santa Monica Observer, the suspects are self-described "Islamic Americans who attended a Nation of Islam mosque in the South Dallas area."

It appears the suspects took advantage of the planned protests to kill as many officers as possible in retaliation for military action in Syria.

"There is no justification for these kinds of attacks" said U.S. President Barack Obama speaking at a NATO meeting in Warsaw, Poland, on Friday.

The Obama administration has resettled thousands of refugees from Syria over the past 7 years. Critics say islamist extremists are among the refugees entering this country to join "sleeper cells".

Orlando gunman Omar Mateen warned of more attacks on American soil after killing 49 people at a gay bar in June.

The well-planned, coordinated attack on Dallas law enforcement followed the highly publicized police shooting deaths of 2 black men in Baton Rouge and Minnesota this week.

On Thursday, the Black Lives Matter activist group organized protests in major cities, demanding justice for the police shooting deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.

Castile, 32, was shot and killed by a Minnesota cop as he reached for his wallet on Wednesday.

Sterling, 37, died during a confrontation with 2 Baton Rouge police officers while selling CDs outside a convenience store early Wednesday morning.

Dallas office workers are urged to stay home from work on Friday as investigators continue to comb the massive crime scene for more evidence.

    Good morning everyone! If there are any Roses in Dallas please let us know that you are safe and sound. I will not speak on the article right now because mentally I don't have the right words to express and whatever I say at this point may come out wrong. However I will say I am praying for everyone.

    They knew won't no black man involved. As of 6 am Mark Hughes pic still was up as a suspect.

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    How convenient. Anything to take focus off the issue at hand. Never fails. Now all we're going to pay attention to are the poor cops who are cowards and should be cottled when they are beasts in human form. Don't take the bait y'all.

  • HIS4EVA

    r some of the witnesses said that the person was dressed like a cop?

  • CaramelDrop

    Quit a few discrepancies in this here write up ... There was a bomb and that is how the suspect was killed...

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    This is tragic. EVERYONE deserves to go home at night.

  • HIS4EVA

    all the news i herd said no bomb found.

  • mel

    The gunman in the standoff did not commit suicide. ..he detonated a bomb and killed himself. ..the gunman stated he worked alone... However I would like names and photos released the way the Dallas Police Department released erroneous photos of an innocent protestor with open carry license...they stated they had videos of him shooting...which was inaccurate information....Cory and Mark Hughes

  • HIS4EVA

    BLATANT AZZ LIE!

  • mel

    News conference on NOW...DPD

  • HIS4EVA

    keep me updated.

  • CaramelDrop

    See the thing is we really have some good COOL police here.... I really think this was set up to LOOK like the citizens here did this shit

  • LibraGirlonly

    So media takeout is reporting that they are white and Ricky Smily said the same thing. I'm confused just show the faces already. I don't think they were black because they would have already shown the faces. Wewwww

  • HIS4EVA

    agree.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Folks on my feed are falling for the trip. This had nothing to do with BLM or the brothers liked. Nothing.

  • mel

    Police chief read statements made to the negotiator

  • mela.reign77

    That's what I said when I first heard about the shootings. That they were white, that is.

  • HIS4EVA

    huh? wat the say

  • LibraGirlonly

    Ricky Smily said media takeout is reporting the snipers as white. I'm confused at this point.

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    I ?the suspects aren't black.

  • HIS4EVA

    and if they were blakk face would have been splattered

  • Mystery User

    They talked with a suspect before they blew him up. He said he was not affiliated with any group, he was an individual that was upset about the police killing black men, and he wanted to kill white people, specifically officers...
    Let's not make this more than what it is - we lost 2 they lost 5
    Interesting way to end the week!

  • CaramelDrop

    Those outlets are lying to you dear - press conference going on right now with mayor and police chief. Check fox4 dallas

  • mel

    Shooter intent was to kill white people and specifically white police officers

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    It's super sad. Violence solves nothing.

  • Mystery User

    There was no Islamic connection...

  • ThickyFromPhilly

    True quite a few. Like the fact that no one was killed in the orlando bar shooting until swat came in. That in in the report but for some reason no real media coverage

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I saw Chief Brown say he blew himself up and he worked alone. We know he didn't work alone. I posted 2 videos of a terrorist shooting an officer point blank with a handgun, not an assault rifle. How could one gunman be on the street AND shooting from rooftops AND shooting from inside a garage?

  • SG

    Its like they are trying to incite a race war. Qake up this morning and the world has gone mad. SMH

  • mela.reign77

    And you know this mannn! ( In my Chris Tucker voice) Lol.. But seriously I think the guys that did this was not doing it because they were upset about the killings of the young men within the last 72 hours but to start something else. But that's just a theory, but we shall see.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Whattttttt?

  • HIS4EVA

    wow!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree I shook my head when Chief Brown said he worked alone. Really? All those gunshots came from a handgun?

  • mel

    They have 2 men in custody and one female leaving in a Mercedes

  • Mystery User

    There wer 4 people involved, One in custody is claimed to be a light skinned AA woman.
    The man didn't blw himself up, Dallas PD sent a robot in to blow after negotiations didn't go well.

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    I'm not talking about the cool or good ones. I'm talking about the ones who have malice and fear in their hearts for and of black citizens. The ones who are shooting black sons and fathers and getting away with it because of these carefully orchestrated distractions. Now these protests are "anti-police" protests. Watch the shootings of these black men get shadowed by this until another black man or child gets gunned down. It's the same damn show different characters.

    Chief Brown spread misinformation live on national TV. He is irresponsible. He claims the shooter was "upset about Black Lives Matter."

  • MissyJ

    Can the terrorists let us have our ish? I mean dang.....

  • ThickyFromPhilly
  • CaramelDrop

    Well actually THIS protest was about saving our sons which is why the police were there to SUPPORT the protesters... Laughing, joking and protecting. I agree that this is going to be a distraction to the core of the issue here but this distraction IMO was caused by someone with a outside agenda using blacks and the blacklivesmatter movement as a pawn and cover up for their own agenda

  • PettyEyezPrime

    The shooter was killed by a robot with a bomb so we'll never know the truth.
    Any other races reported? Or just my weak back bae that was BLACK and not involved?
    GM Roses

  • harley_quinn2.0

    The distraction is in full motion and they have fallen for the okie doke. They use these "shootings" to justify not charging these cops when they kill our own . The public rallies behind the cops and the injustice we endure is forgotten.

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    Look, we're seeing the same thing. You're just choosing to look at the surface by stating that all lives are important, which they are, while I'm looking a bit deeper and seeing this as what it is which is a distraction. It doesn't surprise me at all that hours after another man is shot in killed for being black that this occurs. They're going to spin it. Coverage is about to go the other way. Soon it will go back to being a gun issue when the most threatning ones with the guns are the ones authorized to carry one. Some would call this situation in Dallas a cause and effect but I see this as just another way to say, "forget about that other stuff for now, cops were killed so we'll talk about the bad cops shooting innocent black people later...like when it happens again." They do a great job of showing how cops are real people with families who love them, but do they do the same with us? No one is saying these cops deserved to be hunted, but neither do we. And I'M saying that this will take focus off the root problem at hand. The real issue will get a bandaid and will not heal. We will not heal. And it will be a rinse and repeat situation. We're always in mourning. I'm just saying, stay woke and know what's going on around you and don't take the bait. If you don't get it, that's cool, it's one of those things you either get or you don't, not to sound pompous.. But with all due respect, I'm not explaining any further

  • Orchidjones-PETTY INSTIGATOR

    Am I wrong to say I am relieved that it is ISIS incident rather than us that took matters into their own hands as vigilantism to redeem the death of both Philando Castile and Alton Sterling? We are not ready... We as a people are still in bereavement from the last year(s) since the death by police officers. I am not a fan of none of this, don't get me wrong, but when I first heard, I thought it to be some rogue black militia that had a hand in it. I swear, this is worst than the Purge.

  • AL Dunbar

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    All of a sudden CNN can't talk to black people and black reporters enough!!!

  • PhillyFacts

    In the video the CNN corespondent shot from his hotel room tho blurry as ever I believe CNN intentionally obscured the video but thats a whole other issue it appeared the guy was white. However, we do know many middle eastern folks have white looking skin as well. I believe the government is behind these attacks personally to 1) deflect attention from the innocent killings of brothers and 2) to deceive the public into believing "islamic terrorist" is once again to blame so they can continue to carry out mass killings of innocent civilians on foreign soil. Either way somethings not quite right here.

  • Lolalao

    Exactly. I believe it because they don't care about their own group when it comes to meeting their agenda. They continuously let white men and women go free without caring about the justice for their own people. Why?
    You think they won't kill a few cops to fit into their agenda. They know white people ( like you said) will think a black person shot the cops.
    They will feel they made a sacrifice for a bigger cause..smh Their hatred has their allegiance strong. I can see them definitely doing this.

  • Concerned

    They showed a pic of one dead cop. Imagine if the other cops are black and the shooter is white....I know it's a conspiracy theory but them not releasing anything leaves this open to such theories

  • Krissy

    I live in Dallas & have been following this story closely since last night.

    I just saw the video of the black suspect. Not trying to be disrespectful but he is phune. They released him because before the shooting he had turned in his rifle and got a business card from the cops/talking to cops on film. He said the police were lying said they had him on video shooting at cops. I was like wow I am glad someone had that on film because they were getting ready to send him down the river. I have no more tears. I am exhausted.

    " All lives matter " is a joke. We wouldn't have to say "BLM" if they would leave black people alone.
    White ppl need to realize and so do some black people that want to yell " ALM" ? NOPE. AGENDA MATTERS.
    White people don't care about other white people's life or feelings just the agenda . They will let countless white male and females go free after they rape and murder people. Where's the justice for their families?
    They got it so great that they'll even make TV shows? Check out that new show on Freeform about the girls roommate that's murdered. Sound familiar?
    All of this comes full circle . ? Dallas=Them murdering their own wonderful cops to meet the agenda that a black person's murdering cops.

  • Empress

    Also in this crazy world, "light skin" black woman could really be a dark skin white transgender. Spray tan is a beast and gender is fluid. Unless they have a suspect(which they do even though he's dead) they should not speculate on race/gender of the unidentified people. Where is all their PC isht now? Bastards.

    "Dallas = them murdering their own etc"

    The only dead officer they're showing is the Dart officer ... Deep down I feel this was staged. I live here - the night before my husband and I thought someone important was here because EVERY street between Oak Cliff and Pleasant Grove had a DPD officer. Then the very next day this shit happened. DPD officers are only heavy in the streets at the top of the month. The night before all of this police presence was tripled.

  • the guest

    I'm sorry, the officers murdered and wounded did not murder Mr. Sterling nor Mr. Castile, and the officers murdered and wounded were respectful in guarding the protesters. No one, no human being, deserves to be senselessly murdered.

    Terrorists are a reminder that there is a bigger enemy that thrives and profits on America's race war.

    This is what happens when you have a failed leadership from the top on down. They have done nothing to address the shootings of black folks at the hands of police officers. Now you have this.

    Racial Profiling is a big business. Police are paid overtime for racial profiling assignments. Even police who ordinarily would not live racist do the profiling traffic stops and false arrests for the money. Racism is multilayered and complex. Poor and working class white cops being lured and pimped to racial profile, Poor and working class black men being racially profiled and murdered over overtime. This is so frightening its unreal.

    If it were straight up race hatred it would be easier to fight but its economic and that's a monumental beast to fight.

    What about all of the black men they have killed over decades? The police are terrorists themselves. They have tortured, humiliated and murdered black people for centuries and you want me to feel sorry for these cops.

    There were no reports of an explosion, and no witness filmed any loud explosions.

    Sandra, they "assumed" Mark Hughes was somehow involved because he was seen toting a long rifle slung across his body last night. But we are an open carry state. It was his right to do so. Not smart, in my opinion, but still his right. The line shooter was killed by a bomb that the police attached to the end of the bomb robot. So they extracted info from him before they killed him. Again, he wasn't shot, nor did he take his on life. He was killed by a bomb from the Dallas police department

    Even more sickening there are black officers who also do the racial profiling assignments for the money.

    People forget there was a black officer on site in the Walter Scott murder and that black officer was fully complicit with the racial profiling, attack, and cover up.

    These officers are getting paid to meet racial profiling quotas no different than slave catchers were paid to make quotas. Look at the history of the economics of racism.

    If cops stopped getting special paid assignments to racial profile the killings would drop dramatically.

    No. All this blackout and protesting is going to do is cause (white) businesses NOT to hire black people. I'm sorry, but blacks have the highest unemployment among the groups and very few of businesses. Whites can retaliate too, not hire, not give contracts....refuse service.
    It's unlawful, but they do it. One day of a blackout is not going to hurt anyone but the kids and colleges students who work the service businesses for minimum wage.

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    You're deflecting. This may sound cold but so be it. There's a slight difference in the murders of the police officers and that of Mr. Castile and Mr. Sterling, isn't there? When these police officers took their oath or whatever it is when they moved from student to officer, they were well aware of the possibility of being harmed or even killed on the job, is this correct? They may not have expected it but they knew it was a strong possibility since they have "one of the most dangerous jobs" in the world. Can we say the same for Mr. Sterling or Mr. Castile? Did they know they would leave their children fatherless or their wife/fiancé without husbands when they woke up on the days they would be murdered? You see, my intention is not in downplaying the deaths of these officers. My issue is with the media and now the public trying to equalize both situations. They are not the same, and yes one is definitely more serious than the other, the killing of innocent civilians. And as I stated, I was talking about paticular types of officers.

    They were all senselessly murdered but we need to address the core issue which is the 21st century lynching of black men and women in this country, come up with solutions and fix that, let's not gloss over it until it's a distant thought, a passing feeling of anger.

    And are the terrorists the bigger enemy? Like really, are they?So after we fight their fight, will they finally have respect for us? Because blacks been fighting their wars only to come home and still be disrespected. Please don't.

  • the guest

    Not deflecting. Staying focused. Terrorists are growing keen to using America's race war to their advantage.

    Not once has anyone in the media mentioned the fact that police officers are paid (special, extra, overtime) to meet racial profiling quotas. The economics of racism needs to be put on blast.

    Racial profiling is used as an excuse to kill. No one can convince me that these officers are not getting paid for each kill.

    These officers are not just flipping off the handle, these attacks are being economically instigated, organized and funded. That's why they always get away with it.The cops, courts, everyone is on the racial profiling (and murdering) payroll.
