    Where is the Body Armor we were told the shooters were wearing?

    I hope this is not just some random guy that they put a target on . . . .

    Unless that guy got from ground position to the top of the building in an instant the dude with AR is doubtful to be the shooter

    You can see him in this video

    Texas gun laws make it more difficult for the police to do their job, now it's taking their lives.

    Absolutely, this was planned to cause maximum carnage and deliver a message. It clearly was meant to take advantage of the protest and that there would be a heavy police presence. Whoever did this was part of something very dark. I really hope they find these people and their accomplices.

    WTF? They're putting his face all over CNN when you can just take a look at this video and see it wasn't him. Shooters were in elevated position.

    there is full blown distrust by both sides and some cops and folks chose to handle it in their own way. there is a war between cops and people but most people are not engaging in battle, only protesting. however, it appears a minor few might be willing to war with cops. it is clear however, imho, that cops started this war with their behavior but it will take both sides to end it.

    There is supposedly a shoot out right now between the police and one of the shooters.

    Could you imagine being that guy - what would you do. There you are with an assault rifle with all these cops being shot around you. Must have been a scary moment for him.

    His name is apparently CoreyHughes. He handed his weapon to a cop unloaded.
