    Congrats, you're an idiot. I made an observation only, learn to read and comprehend.

    Curious

    You don't like the police and you don't like our soon to be president, why don't you move to Europe?

    It was a stupid observation. At a time when nerves are frayed.

    Maybe think before you post next time.

    This is ****ed up. Can someone give a concise factual summary of what happened?

    A minuscule percentage, but I would rephrase your question to I think a more significant one: "What percentage of fatal shooting against restrained/unarmed black men by police officers occurred because they were black?"

    That is heartbreaking. BLM must be very proud tonight. Absolutely sickening.

    I am on the side of innocent Dallas police. I'm not on the side of trigger happy Falcon Heights cops.

    The fundimental problem here is lumping all cops or all black people together.

    The fact that two people died from lumping everyone into one boat and morons are still conceptualizing their way through this by doing exactly the thing that caused both sets of killings is sad.

    I hope Obama addresses the nation and stands up for the police officers and that while there is a problem within the criminal justice system, he needs to stand up for cops and under no circumstance should an officer ever be the target of hate or violence under any circumstance.

    This is the problem - is that people are taking sides when really it's about rejecting violence from anyone. There is no such thing as a "side".

    Regardless of whether this person is one of the shooters or not, how long was this man just walking around in plain sight while carrying a rifle?
