Five police officers were murdered and seven more officers and two passers-by were wounded in an ambush in Dallas (TX) last night towards the end of a “Black Lives Matter” protest downtown. Four of the officers killed belonged to the Dallas Police Department, and one was a DART officer.
Three people are in police custody who are believed to have been involved with this ambush, which is the single deadliest loss of life for law enforcement in a terrorist attack since 9/11. A fourth committed suicide rather than be taken into custody.
A volatile “Black Lives Matter” protest rallying against the officer-involved shootings of armed felon Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge (LA) and lawful concealed carrier Philando Castile in Falcon Heights (MN), a suburb of St.Paul, was winding down when at least two terrorists opened fire on officers below them from elevated positions in what appears to be a pre-planned ambush. The attack took place at approximately 9:00 PM.
Speaking from a NATO summit in Poland this morning, President Barack Obama—who has provided support for the Black Lives Matter movement and who has churned up anti-police sentiment from his first days in office—stated rotely, “There is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement. Anyone involved in the senseless murders will be held fully accountable. Justice will be done.”
