Killing Black or Brown people in the USA by police should be viewed as a hate crime.

The two black men shot within twenty four hours of each other was more than police work. That is some of the problem here. There is nothing normal about what occurred. They are hate crimes.

Sell a Lucy. Sell a CD. Face death. Hate crime.

Young black men (click here) were nine times more likely than other Americans to be killed by police officers in 2015, according to the findings of a Guardian study that recorded a final tally of 1,134 deaths at the hands of law enforcement officers this year.
Despite making up only 2% of the total US population, African American males between the ages of 15 and 34 comprised more than 15% of all deaths logged this year by an ongoing investigation into the use of deadly force by police. Their rate of police-involved deaths was five times higher than for white men of the same age.
Paired with official government mortality data, this new finding indicates that about one in every 65 deaths of a young African American man in the US is a killing by police.
“This epidemic is disproportionately affecting black people,” said Brittany Packnett, an activist and member of the White House taskforce on policing. “We are wasting so many promising young lives by continuing to allow this to happen.”
Speaking in the same week that a police officer in Cleveland, Ohio, was cleared by a grand jury over the fatal shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African American boy who was carrying a toy gun, Packnett said the criminal justice system was presenting “no deterrent” to the excessive use of deadly force by police. “Tamir didn’t even live to be 15,” she said....

The work week ended (click here) with the hottest temperatures registered so far this year, and a tornado.
On Friday, the sea breeze developed just after 4 p.m., clearly noticeable on radar. Our team of meteorologists were closely watching this as it had the potential to spark some thunderstorms as it moved closer to the I-4 corridor. Just after 7:30 p.m. the thunderstorms stretched from northern Osceola County to north-central Orange County. Storms topped out about 45,000 feet and produced lots of lightning from Winter Springs to the south of St. Cloud....

This entire scenario in Dallas is a result of the cronyism of the NRA.

The gunman had high powered military style weapons and the police force responded with a bomb. The is the worst sort of policing that exists. The lack of firearm regulation has resulted in a country with responding forces that are turning our cities into Baghdad.

The gun man was there to protect protesters. This is not rocket science. He had conducted his own intelligence of the area. He where he would retreat to when police came for him. Once the protest ended and it was apparent to him there was danger to protesters he fired on the police standing around within his scope. I am assuming he had a scope.

A bomb was used to kill him. Killing him was determined the best way to handle the secluded gunman. The robot could have delivered a lot of things and the gunman didn't have to die at the use of a bomb. I don't consider this good police work. 

In past issues where the police department was the target, the SWAT team used 50 mm shells to pierce an armored vehicle where the gunman was sitting. It is all too clear what happens when there is 'gun anarchy,' democracy is lost and civil wars begin.

This is Dallas the place where anything gun is allowed. Take a good long look.

This incidence in Dallas is the first salvo of a civil war. Those in revolt of the police are getting first hand information about them.

Dallas, Texas

To apprehend a suspect in the Dallas (click here) shooting last night that took the lives of five officers, police used a robot to deliver a bomb. That makes Dallas police the first law enforcement agency that has ever used a robot to kill.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters that the department chose to use the remote-controlled robot after hours of failed negotiations and the desire to not put any more officers in harms way.

Robots have commonly been used by police in situations like bomb diffusing and even in hostage or other life-threatening situations. In 2015, police were able to talk a man out of suicide in California after using a remote-controlled robot to deliver him a phone and a pizza.According to Peter Singer, a defense technology expert, MARCbot (Multi-Function Agile Remote-Controlled) surveillance robots have been used before in similar methods by U.S. troops in Iraq....

The ATF has wanted changes to the munition load on USA streets. Why? Because they are armor piercing bullets. There is absolutely nothing the citizen cannot buy differently than police or military. Terrorist cells can organize in the USA and obtain their weapons unimpeded. A civil war is on it's way, too. 

This is not PTSD. PTSD in this instance is an excuse. The gunman was not wildly shooting at everyone and anyone, he was rational and focused. The civilians injured were probably innocently crossing the line of fire. 

"To apprehend a suspect in the Dallas..." is how the media is describing the actions by SWAT police. There was no intention of apprehension if they are deploying bombs.

What damage was done to the structure by the bomb. Crumbling structure?

...In a 17 page document (click here) released earlier this month the ATF proposed the reclassification of “5.56mm constituent projectiles of SS109 and M855 cartridges” from the category of “primarily used for sporting purposes” to that of “armor piercing ammunition.”  The agency fears that the ammunition used in AR based handguns can penetrate bullet proof vests worn by law enforcement officers....

We hear lots of talk about conservatives. (click here) Just what is a conservative? A conservative is a Republican who just spent $7 million of taxpayers money on the investigation of the Benghazi disaster. This investigation was dealing with the death of four Americans which included the U.S. ambassador who were attacked on September 11, 2012.
The main purpose of the investigation was to get even with Haillary Clinton for mismanagement.The committee that held the investigation knew that the results would be! They knew Mrs. Clinton was not responsible for the killings. But getting even with Mrs. Clinton was far more interesting to these conservatives and the cost was of no concern to them.
But these conservatives need to do more investigations. Why hasn't there been an investigation of the fact that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney are war criminals? Over 4,500 American soldiers lost their lives. Over a half million Iraqi children, women and men lost their lives. The country of Iraq was destroyed. The war cost the American taxpayers some $3 trillion. Halliburton Corporation made $100 billion because of this war.
I'm sure these conservatives will start this investigation soon! You know the saying, "killing one person is murder, but killing thousands is government policy!"4\
