As Thursday’s deadly attack unfolded in Texas, with snipers injuring six people and killing five Dallas police officers, the scene was one of chaos and confusion. Three suspects are now in custody. A fourth is reported to be dead. The identities and motives of the perpetrators still remain under investigation.
Amid the confusion, a man in a camouflage T-shirt briefly became one of the most sought individuals in the United States.
Yes, he took a rifle to the protest. He happens to be a member of the NRA, and wanted to show his strong support for the Second Amendment. How could he have known that snipers were about to fire on police officers? As soon as the incident began, he immediately turned his rifle over to police. Soon after, after finding out that he was one of the most wanted men in the nation, he immediately turned himself over to police, who cleared him of any involvement in the attack, after a thorough investigation. However, since then, he has received thousands of death threats.
I would like to note that Dallas PD did call him a man of interest, and rightly so. Then they cleared him after an investigation. So, on that note, I wouldn't say falsely accused. Dallas PD did what they were supposed to do. Investigate.
Oh yea. One more thing. He happens to be black. This should be a story of "Don't rush to judgement without knowing all the facts". Things aren't always as they seem to some people.
