At least 10 police officers were shot, including three fatally, in Dallas Thursday night by what appeared to be snipers amid a protest against the recent police shootings of two black men, Alton Sterling in Louisiana, and Philando Castile in Minnesota, according to a statement from the Dallas Police.
“Tonight it appears that two snipers shot ten police officers from elevated positions during the protest/rally,” Dallas Police Chief David Brown said in a statement. “Three officers are deceased, two are in surgery and three are in critical condition. An intensive search for suspects is currently underway. No suspects are in custody at this time.”

Earlier, Dallas Area Rapid Transit said that four of its officers were shot and one killed. It was not clear if those officers were included in the 10.
Four DART police officers were shot in downtown Dallas. 1 deceased, others not life-threatening. No IDs yet. Updates via twitter.

    They are trying to create a race war and are succeeding at it because their are to many dumb asses out there that play into there BS. if the idiots in this world would stop dwelling on what our ancestors did that we had no control over it wouldn’t be this way but of course they want to bring up that white man had slaves and yada yada. Look that’s not our problem we have no control over it.! This black lives matter BS is so stupid. ALL LIVES MATTER not just black.! And as far as the politicians talking about taking guns away like that going to solve the problem they are idiots too. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people and if they take the guns away they will find something else to replace them.! Fed up with all the BS.! Prayers for the families of the officers involved in Dallas shooting.! Not all cops are bad

      So why are they driving us to a racial and civil war? What is Obama and his financiers ultimate goal in goading people into acts of murder, in funding terrorists both here and abroad, and in denigrating police and innocent civilians when it serves his agenda to? In other words, what does Obama and his global puppeteers have in mind for us? If they want civil war, they’ll get it unless those in governmental positions who can stop him do so.

      I hope all you local, state and federal elected and appointed people are paying attention.

    Thank you Barak Hussein Obama for dividing the country and exacerbating racial hatred with your public comments against police. Why does Obama not comment when whites are involved? Why only blacks? I think we know why!! We’re undergoing a slow-motion political COUP, and killers like the ones in DFW are doing his dirty work for him.

      Notice this morning he was up on his soap box talking about guns. He never lets a tragedy go to waste. Talk about despicable.

        Well, no, he doesn’t. Remember his good friend Rahm Emmanuel saying ‘never let a crisis go to waste’? Yep, that’s what dictators do. They will walk on the bodies of the dead if they can get a little more blood out for their cause.
