Flint Water Project - Nothing new to report.
There is an active shooter in Washington, DC. There may be mimics that occur.

This has nothing to do with terrorism.

I don't think Dallas is about terrorism. It is about the Black men that were killed in cold blood over the past two weeks.

Guns are all to available.

The Governor needs to call the National Guard.

Dallas is not Baghdad and to say so is irresponsible and inflammatory.

...Other protests across the U.S. on Thursday were peaceful. (click here) In midtown Manhattan, protesters first gathered in Union Square Park where they chanted "The people united, never be divided!" and "What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now!" In Minnesota, where Castile was shot, hundreds of protesters marched in the rain from a vigil to the governor's official residence. 

Protesters also marched in Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia.
President Barack Obama said America is "horrified" over the shootings and there's no possible justification for the attacks.

Speaking from Warsaw, Poland, where he was meeting with leaders of the European Union and attending a NATO summit, the president said justice will be done and he's asking all Americans to pray for the fallen officers and their families. He also said the nation should express its gratitude to those serving in law enforcement....

The murder rate in Dallas increased since last year. The murder rate across the USA has been declining for that past few years. It is grossly inappropriate to play politics in the face of these events. This happened in Dallas, it didn't happen any place else.

The mayor should be impeached and a federal investigation should begin. Is it another Ferguson?

Dallas’ murder rate (click here) this year has jumped 71 percent compared with 2015, KTVT-TV(Channel 11) and WFAA-TV (Channel 8) say.
So far this year, 41 homicides have been reported. By this time last year, there were 24.
Police attribute much of the spike to drug-related murders, as well as an increase in family violence killings, WFAA said. Violent crime overall is up about 23 percent compared with last year.
Dallas Police Association president Ron Pinkston told KTVT that the statistics show the city needs more police: “They could be putting bad guys in jail. People that will commit crimes now are usually going to be the people that are going to commit the murders in the future.”
He also told WFAA that low morale and misplaced priorities are problems: “We have homicide detectives out there working patrol instead of working their cases. The city manager has been ignoring the issues, and now the murder rate is skyrocketing.”...
