Five Officers Killed, Six Others Wounded By Snipers In Dallas

Can you guess the one thing that is missing from almost all news reports? Who the shooters were

(ABC News) Eleven police officers were shot ambush-style, including five fatally, in Dallas Thursday night by at least two snipers, amid a protest against the recent police shootings of two black men, Alton Sterling in Louisiana, and Philando Castile in Minnesota, according to the Dallas Police.

One of the suspects had engaged in a standoff for several hours with police, but a Dallas city official announced around 3:30 a.m. that it was over. It was not immediately known what his condition was.

The condition of the six wounded officers remains unknown. One civilian was also injured.

Officials said the gunmen aimed to kill as many officers as possible.

Among the officers killed, at least one was a Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) officer. DART tweeted it was “grieving the loss” of Officer Brent Thompson, 43. Three other DART officers were injured: Omar Cannon, 44; Misty McBride, 32; Jesus Retana, 39. A DART spokesman said “they are expected to recover from their injuries.”

Unsurprisingly, there are many who are blaming the guns.

And there are plenty of folks on Twitter and in comments at news articles who are cheering the cold blooded murder of these police officers. Officers who had nothing to do with the incidents in Louisiana and Minnesota.

By 12:30 a.m. local time, three suspects were in custody and cops were in negotiations with a fourth, who was exchanging gunfire with officers.

Two of the individuals were taken in after one of them was seen carrying a camouflage bag walking quickly down Lamar Street in downtown Dallas. The individual then threw the bag in the back of a Mercedes and sped off. Police followed the vehicle and performed a traffic stop.

A woman was also taken into custody in the vicinity of the El Centro parking garage.

The fourth suspect was the individual engaged in a shootout with Dallas SWAT officers, police said, and a suspicious package was found near the suspect’s location. Police said the package is being secured by the bomb squad.

Who could they be? Are they NRA members? White supremacists? Sovereign Citizens? These are questions being asked on social media and again, in comments by Typical Leftists. Of course, some are wondering if they were Islamists. Initially, Dallas Police identified one guy as a suspect, but, after being detained, he was let go. So, we just do not know at this time.

We’ll surely know the identities of the shooters by the end of the day, and, if we don’t you can sadly bet that they are either Black or Muslim, and that the government is attempting to spin this.
