Breaking News: Shots fired in Dallas

Post by Nano » Fri Jul 08, 2016 8:48 am

A Black Lives Matter rally at Dallas protesting the recent shootings had two (originally) (four as of now and snipers) heavily armed men come up and started firing into officers. Here's a summary of what happened:

5 Officers lost their lives
6 Officers wounded
1 Civilian wounded
3 Suspects in custody
1 Suspect dies by self inflicted gunshot

As of right now, it seems that most of the terror is over, but it's likely police will continue searching for anyone else who may have played a part in this event. More info can be found here.

Yeah, honestly.

I was thinking about making this topic after news of the suspects being put into custody first broke out, but decided against it because it was too soon, and because right now isn't really the time for heated debate. I really do believe right now people who do believe in a god or gods should send out their prayers, and those who don't should hope for the best.

So, again, I don't think right now really is the time to have any heated discussion or debate about politics or how this sort of thing makes you feel. Just like with the other shooting, we all know that this makes everyone other than the scum of the earth feel terrible due to the needless loss of life. We shouldn't really pack any extra negative emotions onto this. Even Goat realized that after making his topic.

Pretty much, there's nothing to discuss that wouldn't result in seriously heated arguments and require intervention from admins/staff. It's awful that things have to go like this, the situation is awful and our hearts go out to the victims and their families.

Guys don't worry. You don't need to discuss it, it's just being brought to your attention if you haven't seen it already.

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2016/07/08/us/d ... index.html

some articles I read on it this morning. idk. this is horrifying. obviously right now I don't want to **** on the Dallas police, they seemed to handle the protest really well too, but i do wish the information on the shooters would come faster, I understand the department is gonna have legal hold ups but it's really scary.

also **** Joe Walsh like really what an awful person right now

This was bound to happen sooner or later

Edit: The attack was racially motivated against white police officers, three suspects are in custody as well.

This is the culmination of years of anti-police sentimentality, the lies spread by the media and people on social media have all culminated in what many report as the worst attack on police officers since 9/11.

Black Lives Matter is officially nothing more than a group of terrorists at this point, after this many years of what they've been responsible for this was the expected outcome.

^lol ok bud

i don't want to hear about terrorism from the dude that think people should be allowed guns as deterrents and to defend themselves in case of a "revolution"

of course im guessing this standard of yours doesn't apply to BLM for whatever bull reason you'll pull out of your right wing ass

can't believe you're so quick to pull the terrorist card on a resistance group when only a few individuals have gone too far when the whole problem comes from police killing people for no reason, among them literal ****** children, in most cases from confirmed racial motivations or incredibly questionable bull and i don't see you calling the police institution a corrupt terror organism

i'm just pointing out the flaws in your personal politics and your eagerness to pin the terrorist label in a group of necessary social protest as soon as someone uses the public banner to justify their personal violence

They've spent more time ignoring black on black crime and more time defending criminals even if they were attacking black people.

Do you really think for a second any of them are worth even playing a devils advocate for?

i mean it'd be obvious that at this point third parties will try to incriminate BLM and paint them as terrorists, sad to see it works on people like triert

^thats exactly something i read from friends i was discussing it with. one of the most likely reasons this happened was to make BLM look really bad when they arent trying to cause violence in the first place. this kind of stuff is really scary and my heart goes to those affected. i wish this kind of crap would stop so people dont have to be afraid for their lives anymore.

9/11 was absolutely in no way am attack on police officers. It was commercial planes and two out of the three targets were commercial buildings. If 9/11 was an attack on police officers, 3000 people wouldn't have died

Don't tell me how to post you ignorant child with beautifully photographed headshots.

But really if someone is gonna go "**** BLM" rn, honestly that's so hateful that it's painful. This was a peaceful, honestly beautiful event. Police and protestors got along so well. Then snipers unaffiliated with BLM took it upon themselves to fire at officers, a couple of whom were black anyway. The Dallas police chief said the shooter was quoted as saying they were fed up with BLM and fed up with police and wanted to kill white people. I heard that in an audio snippet on NPR so like it's legit. Don't tell me not to stir something up, this is serious and scary and responses like Triert's are only going to hurt this country.

The Dallas police have seemed to thus far have a really solid response to all this. And also they had a robot detonate a bomb to kill on of the snipers while they negotiated with them, which is very scary and also kind of neat.
