Haven't heard anything about it, but I did hear the President once again seizing the "opportunity" to speak out against the police being racists.

Multiple officers shot at “Black Lives Matter” protest in Dallas | WPMT FOX43



"Black Lies Matter" proving that they are nothing more than an urban terrorism organization.


[/FONT][/COLOR]

Sure, shots fired after a peaceful protest ended so it must be the black lives matter protesters who are guilty of it. :roll: When officers shoot unarmed people it is "we must wait until more information is available/until the investigation is done" but when the shoe is on the other foot we get this kind of reaction.

Innocent until proven otherwise goes both ways.

I apologize if I offended anyone but I was just listening to the radio on the way home and heard part of the talk the President gave. Just logged on and saw this thread. What did I say that was so offensive?

Yeah, that is of course why he said:

Now, let me just say we have extraordinary appreciation and respect for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day. They’ve got a dangerous job. It is a tough job. And as I've said before, they have a right to go home to their families, just like anybody else on the job. And there are going to be circumstances in which they’ve got to make split-second decisions. We understand that.

All I have to say to that is a famous Black Lives Matter protest chant.....

Look... there is a very fluid and explosive situation happening in real time as I type this. Save the political angle for tomorrow. RIGHT NOW people are dying. Blame game stuff is WAY inappropriate right now.

Yep, I heard that part too. I don't know much about either police shootings in the last two days but I did hear the one in Baton Rouge was brandishing a gun and fighting with the officers, which might provide some justification. The initial report I heard from MN seems much worse. I cannot pass judgement until I know more.

So some people yelled that in Minnesota? Does that have anything to do with this protest march in Dallas? No, it does not.

Actually, that has been shouted at multiple rallies. Not sure about this one though.

Is this the time for partisan politics?

It never is time in my opinion.

2nd thread on this shooting where you apologized over comments. Take the time and read them and think about it.

Yes it does.... same organization.

Or did you also claim that what Tea Party people did in New York had nothing to do with what they did in, say, Arizona?

No, you wouldn't. Same organization, same terrorist like attitude in nearly all of their protests, this time they decided to shoot at police and they actually succeeded this time.

This isn't the first time shots were fired at a Black Lies Matter protest.

I'll paraphrase one of the things BO said concerning the shootings of blacks in the past days at his press conference overseas: 'The police should respond to so many in the African-American community who have a mistrust of police'.

Who's gonna address the bigotry and prejudice in the African-American community towards the police?

This isn't the first time shots were fired at a Black Lies Matter protest.

From the interviews with marchers everything was peaceful and the cops escorting the march were getting along with the crowds, so the They stuff is your own speculation with nothing to back it up. Heck we do not even know if it was someone connected to BLM or simply someone out to shoot cops. Before speculating it is best to get enough facts to attempt it, saves having to wipe that egg off ones face later.
