Sure ok, so lets just all take the law into our own hands right? What could possibly go wrong? Oh , and this nutjub did indicate he did not want to just kill cops, but all whites. I'm white, but as far as I'm concerned I should be exempt to their racism because well I'm Eastern European, so my ancestors DIDN'T have any colonies in Africa, let alone being involved in the slave trade

Sorry, but I have no sympathy, and if I were a black man, I would feel ashamed, and if they do not, well clearly its on them. (phrase removed)

I never said I wanted them executed, again I was sorry that they were not taken alive the f'ing cowards. Plus again how can *I* feel sorry for them if they are shooting everyone, especially in the back? They could have had the balls to at least go up to a cop face-to-face, but no.... so... Again, why should I not side with the cops?

Again, I do not see how this action helps them out and I do not see how the black community is benefiting from this idiocy? I would think they would have the good sense to denounce what has happened, if they have not, well then I guess they are showing their true colors then?

The roots of this run deep in U. S. history, back until 1619 at least. (Indeed, when I attended a white school in Virginia under Jim Crow, 1619 was called the "Red Letter Year," a most revealing misnomer. I submit that "Red Stained Year" would have been a more appropriate term.

To quote Faulkner, “The past is never dead. It's not even past.” As long as the United States buries its head to hide from its past, there will be no deliverance.

I'm going to commend this post by a blogger whose nom de blog is Thoreau to your attention. Then I'll shut up, because, as a Southern boy who grew up under Jim Crow and someone whose training was in U. S. Southern history, this topic pushes too many of my buttons for me to trust myself to remain collected.

Nothing in the real world (of violence ...) is actually "black and white." That just makes convenient news-copy.

"Pretty much?"

One of them was an Iraq War veteran.

Just as Timothy McVeigh was a Gulf War veteran.

EDIT: The latest information is that it was just him:

It was one negro United States army veteran in Dallas doing the shooting of the police officers!! Unfortunately, violence only begets more violence, so many more killings are on the way!! I have run across 2 articles that clearly tell the essence of what caused this tragic event, in my view. In my 72 years I have been attacked by criminals and I have been attacked by police officers; humans take all kinds of creeds to live by!! I have had dealings with good police officers and also good dealings with criminals; because if you look you can even find some good in bad people!! Two wrongs do not make a right and killing innocent people is never justified!! Article one below was written by a negro newspaper reporter and article two was written by an arrow maker!! I hope that you find them interesting!!

"#AlvaBraziel: Houston police shoot black man for ‘pointing gun at them’ "


Police fatally shot an African-American in the early hours of Saturday in Houston, Texas. The man, identified by media as Alva Braziel, was reportedly shot ten times after he pointed his gun at law enforcement. "


https://www.rt.com/usa/350339-houston-kill-black-man/


So.....Was the cops in Houston in the wrong on this one too? Or did this dumbass get himself killed by his own hands? I think the latter.

-edit

Inb4 'shot 10 times' - He pointed a gun AT the cops, its his fault, period.

I think the Land Of The Free and the Home Of The Brave needs some human rights...
Sadly the people suffer because the unelected dictators abuse their positions. Much like the former Soviet Bloc and modern day China.
