Footage from yesterday's murder of police officers in Dallas show a brave officer shoot one of the snipers, who was wearing body armor. The murders turned and executed the office as he tried in vain to escape with an Assault rifle (he had so many magazines that they were falling out of his jacket) - I have yet to hear any Congressman or Senator demand immediate gun control sanctions over this incident - is it because the killers were black? This will be a real test to see just how serious they are or just hypocrites.

I'm actually just reading that - thanks for the heads up
Although, the suspect killed by police is being reported as one Micah X. Johnson. He's former army, and he's black.
Was there more than one shooter, or was it just Micah Johnson. I am trying to figure out why the use of plural "killers were Black" "murdered...by blacks" like there is a hidden agenda. Micah should be punished to the full extent of the law though?
James, from what I have read so far, Micah claimed he acted alone, but they have other people in custody. At this point the story is still developing. We will not know the full truth for a while. What is reported, however, is that Micah was killed.
So far, police have identified four suspects. Three are in custody, one is a woman. According to CBS News, they worked together with the goal of killing as many officers as possible.
So at this point there is one confirmed, a couple held on suspicion with one of those held being released as he had nothing to do with anything. Thanks for update. At work and cannot surf too much
2 of the detained were seen loading a camo duffle bag into a car and sped off, another was loitering near area gunman was held up - looks like none will be charged
You're kidding yourself if you think he's the only one who wants less weapons available. Right now, pretty much anyone who wants to kill someone can get whatever they want. That's an issue.
