The narrative that will be pushed is "See? BLM is a hate group and area a bunch of cop killers". But what I think is an even better narrative, is isn't it crazy that we live in a country where its so easy to do something like this? Its sickening. Mentally ill people can choose to do this. This was an organized attack by multiple gunmen, not a deranged protester that wanted to go out guns blazing. There have always been cop killers, and there always will be. BLM does not have membership, anyone that kills cops because they're mad that cops kill people clearly isn't mentally capable of understanding that sick irony. They're not BLM protesters, they're cop killers.. It doesn't reflect the message of the movement, just as when right-wingers kill cops it doesn't reflect their message of small government. Just felt obligated to bring this up, since I know that hatred for BLM is already spurring.

The Police Chief believe that one of the suspects may have also planted bombs around the part of the city that the shooting occurred.


It takes a particularly intelligent person to hold a civilized political discussion with someone on the opposite side.

I am sorry, but I don't get why you're defending BLM. They only protest for 'black rights' when a white kills them. Black on black crime is an extremely large problem in this country, and it has turned once beautiful cities like Chicago, Baltimore, and Detroit into wastelands. Black leaders ignore these problems, and do nothing about it (at least nothing big which makes the news). In fact, the black leaders are more focused on replacing a statue of George Washington (I think that's who it is) with Michael Brown at a University.

I know the message that Black Lives Matter is trying to display, but they do it in a horrible fashion.

Also, by your logic, if those snipers were not BLM protestors, then the officer which killed Alton was not a cop, just another murderer. So, BLM shouldn't be protesting in the first place. I know you mean good at heart, but BLM will never be something I and many others will see in a good way.

RIP to the officers.

ABSOLUTELY SICKENING to see that asshole walking around with his rifle smiling. That guy is mentally ill, and he's walking around with a fucking rifle. Jesus Christ. How have we not learned this lesson yet?

I'd like to see the BLM response to this incident. Maybe they'll remain silent. Only black lives matter, of course.

That's another topic for another thread, the "black on black crime" talking point has been thoroughly discussed before and frankly I don't care to start that again. BLM was formed because black individuals are disproportionately killed by police, and because our justice system unfairly targets minorities. THAT is their message. Anything else is bullshit that's been lost in a game of telephone among conservative media. 

No, thats not a fair analogy. The cop was a uniformed cop being paid by the department. BLM does not have membership.

I absolutely guarantee the killers will be condemned by the movement, I'll personally PM you their response just to prove it to you.

It's Texas, it's an open carry state.

I know that, but him in all camo, walking with a LONG RIFLE is a bit suspicious no matter open carry or not. I support open carry 100% but that dude was a bit suspicious.

Has something like this ever happened in your country?

Two Victorian police officers were ambushed and killed by a biker gang back in 1988, but that's about it. Our last mass shooting was in '96, and the last time an officer was murdered in my state was in 1979.

Correction, there was another murder of two Victorian officers in 1998 too. However that was the last murder of police officers in Australia, see this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_major_crimes_in_Australia

You have a point, but I remember what that was from and know why he did it. But yea.

Open carry is inherently suspicious. Any alert person sees a guy with a gun and starts to question whats going on. 

Update: 4th officer has been pronounced dead. This was an organized mass shooting.

An injured officer was just declared dead. It has risen to 11 officers shot, 2 in critical condition and 4 dead.

How come BLM don't protest when a black cop is shot? Does his life not matter too?

These days equality doesn't mean equality. It means we want what we're fighting for, and screw everyone else.

RIP to the officers that died, and hopefully the shooters get caught.

EXACTLY! They don't care, they only care when its a Armed/Unarmed Black Civilian. They don't care if he just punched a officer and reached for his weapon. They just don't care, and its stupid.
