    ISIS. Calling it now. This seems like it was planned for a while and they were waiting for an opportunity to ambush cops

    Here's a link to the Guardian where these stats are kept:

    http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...n/01/the-counted-police-killings-us-database#

    Per millions, Native Americans have been killed at the highest rate this year. For totals, Whites are the highest counting for 50% of those killed by cops this year

    “Our father, Eugene Stoner, designed the AR-15 and subsequent M-16 as a military weapon to give our soldiers an advantage over the AK-47...”
