It is with heavy heart that I start the thread on the shooting of police at Dallas. We do not know the full story, but what we do know is bad:
- Officers ,wearing bullet proof vests, are shot and killed by “snipers” at a distance, allegedly from roof tops. Almost a 50/50 separation between WIA and KIA. Very fancy shooting.
2( Fox News has been vocal on the sophistication of the filmed shooters and their evident training of some sort.
- Back-up explosive devices has been a hallmark of ISIS shooters, or those inspired by such. There is talk of one shooter trying to detonate same.
- One shooter kills himself rather than be arrested. Seems to point to some fanaticism ,as does the refusal OF THE CAPTURED PERSONS COOPERATING WITH POLICE. (I cannot help but be reminded of another shooter in Dallas, when I was younger. Seems this murky person had nothing to say to police, and we can guess they were none too gentle. He ended up by being shot by Jack Ruby before he could talk.)
- Early reports claim officers killed were all white.
Now, I don’t wish to be unkind, but if the Flags of the United States were flown at half mast for the “Orlando bunch”…check for flags near you and they should be at half mast.
