    This is still an active event, so more details will come pouring in, but this is absolutely horrific.

    Two of the organizers did the right thing telling other protesters that were armed To put down their guns before the police confused them with the shooter/shooters

    DART is reporting 1 officer killed and 3 others shot with non life threatening injuries.

    Just awful.

    As horrible as everything has been, and probably will continue to be, this isn't the answer.

    I feel like we're in a powder keg and we're thisclose to sparking. Scary times.

    Dallas Police Chief Brown just said that 10 police officers were shot by two snipers in elevated positions during the protest/rally.

    Three officers are dead, two are in surgery, and three are in critical condition.

    A search is underway.

    Anyone who chooses to be a cop in todays day and age should have their head examined.

    Of course the nutty right is already blaming BLM for this. Even though before the shooting it was such a peaceful protest that cops were taking selfies with the protesters.

    These are two rogue protestors, can't paint the whole group with one broad brush. But cops, paint them and lump them all in together.

    Just wait until the gun discussion is brought up again. And there will probably be copycats in other cities if protests continue. This might turn into a cluster****.

    They are not waiting for facts to come out?

    It's not good. If things get worse, it'll eventually rile up everyone who wants to have a stake in this stupid ass anger game.

    Up to 11 officers shot now. Horrible. And not the solution to the problem. This only makes things worse.
