It would seem those on the Dallas police’s side in the wake of the shooting Thursday night that left five officers dead are in the company of the Black Lives Matter movement, as well. This kills the race-baiting notion that Black Lives Matter endorsed this attack, and actually goes a long way toward human solidarity in the face of all this bloodshed.
According to BuzzFeed:
“Leading members of the BLM movement noted that although officers on the ground had paid the highest price for Thursday night’s violence, all involved were “traumatized” by events.
Eleven police officers were shot by an unknown number of snipers at the end of a peaceful rally through downtown Dallas. At least five officers are confirmed dead, and one remains in critical condition in hospital.
The rally had been organized to express solidarity following the fatal police shootings of two young black men this week: Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota.”
The shooting is being called an act of terrorism by many in law enforcement and the press.
