    agreed

    These actions are unacceptable and are a part of the problem. No one is above the law. Killing anyone is evil. No murderer should go unpunished and deserves no mercy. Only evil, morons would randomly shoot at people. This makes as much sense as shooting at school kids for something that happened in a different part of the world. This is terrorism and they need to bring back execution for terrorism.

    Yeah, Obama poured fuel by saying how brave and dedicated the police are. And how violence is wrong. I never heard such irresponsible, inflammatory words from a US President.

    Perhaps Liberals such as Beyonce should stop financing "Black Lives Matter" which one of the Dallas shooters stated was the reason for his murderous atrocity.

    Hello Beyonce, All Lives Matter.

    Here's the full text of yesterday's speech that AJ refers to. That's quite different from this morning's speech.

    "“Good evening everybody. I know that we’ve been on a long flight, but given the extraordinary interest in the shootings that took place in Louisiana and Minnesota, I thought it would be important for me to address all of you directly.

    And I want to begin by expressing my condolences for the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

    As I said in the statement that I posted on Facebook, we have seen tragedies like this too many times.
    The Justice Department has opened a civil rights investigation in Baton Rouge, and the governor of Minnesota has called for an investigation there as well. As is my practice, given my institutional role, I can’t comment on the specific facts of these cases; and I have confidence in the Department of Justice.

    But what I can say is that all of us as Americans should be troubled by the shootings.

    These are not isolated incidents. They’re symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system. And I just want to give people a few statistics to try to put in context why emotions are so raw around these issues.

    According to various studies, not just one, but a wide range of studies that have been carried out over a number of years, African Americans are 30 percent more likely than whites to be pulled over.

    After being pulled over, African Americans and Hispanics are three times more likely to be searched.

    Last year African Americans were shot by police at more than twice the rate of whites.

    African Americans are arrested at twice the rate of whites; African Americans defendants are 75 percent more likely to be charged with offenses carrying mandatory minimums. They receive sentences that are almost ten percent longer than comparable whites arrested for the same crime.

    So that if you add it all up, the African American and Hispanic population, who make up only 30 percent of the general population, make up more than half of the incarcerated population.

    These are facts. And when incidents like this occur, there’s a big chunk of our fellow citizenry that feels as if because of the color of their skin they are not being treated the same. And that hurts. And that should trouble all of us. This is not just a black issue. It’s not just a Hispanic issue. This is an American issue that we should all care about; all fair minded people should be concerned.

    Now let me just say that we have extraordinary appreciation and respect for the vast majority of police officers who put their line on the lives every day. They have a dangerous job. It is a tough job. And as I’ve said before, they have a right to go home to their families, just like anybody else on the job.

    And there are gonna be circumstances where they’re gonna have to make split second decisions. We understand that.

    But when we see data that indicates disparities in how African Americans and Latinos may be treated in various jurisdictions around the country, then it’s incumbent on all of us to say we are better than this. We are better than this.

    And to not have it to degenerate into the usual political scrum, we should be able to step back, reflect and ask ourselves what can we do better so that everybody feels as if they’re equal under the law.

    Now the good news is that there are practices that we can institute that will make a difference. Last year, we put together a task force that was comprised of civil rights activists and community leaders; but also law enforcement officials. Police captains, sheriffs. And they sat around the table and they looked at the data and looked at best practices. And they came up with specific recommendations and steps that could ensure that the trust between trust between communities and police departments were rebuilt and incidents like this would be less likely to occur.

    And there’s some jurisdictions out there that have adopted these recommendations. But there are a whole bunch that have not.

    And if anything good comes out of these tragedies, my hope is that communities around the country take a look and say, how can we implement these recommendations?

    And that the overwhelming majority of police officers, who are doing a great job every single day and are doing their job without regard to race, that they encourage their leadership and organizations that represent them to get behind these recommendations. Because ultimately, if you can rebuild trust between communities and the police departments that serve them, that helps us solve crime problems.

    That will make life easier for police officers. They will have more cooperation. They will be safer. They will be more likely to come home.

    So it would be good for crime fighting and it will avert tragedy. And I’m encouraged by the fact that the majority of leadership in police departments around the country recognize this, but change has been too slow, and we have to have a greater sense of urgency about this.

    I’m also encouraged, by the way, that we have bipartisan support for criminal justice reform working its way through Congress. It has stalled, and lost some momentum over the past couple of months, in part, because Congress is having difficulty, generally, moving legislation forward and we’re in a political season.

    But there are people of goodwill on the Republican side and the Democratic side who I’ve seen want to get something done here. That too, would help provide greater assurance across the country that those in power, those in authority are taking these issues seriously.

    So, this should be a spur to action to get that done, to get that across the finish line. Because I know there are a lot of people who want to get it done.

    So let me just make a couple of final comments. I mentioned in my Facebook statement that I hope we don’t fall into typical patterns that occur after these kinds of incidents occur; where right away there’s a lot of political rhetoric, and it starts dividing people instead of bringing folks together."

    I stayed up late watching this so so sad event on TV, wondering at times what might be in the minds of the shooters. But all I could see was insanity with a gun. This was going to help the black cause? No, this would put the nation's cops on edge.

    I was thinking by the method that the shooters must have had military training. I wondered if they suffered stress disorders from military experience or if they were just nuts when first enlisting. Only now they were nutz with skilz. This is sick. I couldn't help but to think that such easy access to guns aided this event. And I am not an anti-gun advocate. I do dislike killing but also I do believe people should be able to defend themselves. But given that people can be crazy yet high functioning, I don't know what regulations outside of banning might have helped prevent this. Because as crazy as this was, these shooters who were smart enough to set up & execute this would have been smart enough to get around mere regulations of gun control, had we even more of that.

    So in a sense, I look at this bloodshed but see no answers. Certainly, this is not a way forward. My condolences to family & friends of the fallen. This has to stop.

    This guy was a nut and I hope that people won't look at this sociopath as representative of the men and women who are advocating for racial equality and equal protection under the law. My heart goes out to this nutjob's victims, dead or injured, and the people whom they loved and who loved them.

    That nut is not alone and has support here on RJ:

    AyaTrolLiar Founcer/JTheM spewed
    Who could care less if the White racists go belly-up?

    By which he doesn't mean just members of the KKK*, but any police officer in America.
    By which he also includes President Obama. "he's a white President 'in black face'".

    Not long before he'll also include the families of police officers
    Including their little girls sleeping in their bedrooms, unscrupulously used as "human shields" by the pigs.
    (And yeah, they should have known people would come after their children if they became cops, so they are also guilty of child abuse.)

    Then other government workers, who are part of the "system" of "oppression".
    And all white (and Asian, etc.) citizens who benefit from this "system" rather than fight it.

    As one RJer recently emailed me, this isn't just idiocy or ignorance, it's complete insanity, literally mental sickness.

    * As despicable as the KKK ideas are, the thought that even just they can be murdered at will is even more despicable.
    That it is, in his mind, open season on any and all US police officers... is that insanity showing again.

    AyaTrolLiar Founcer/JTheM barfed
    I think there should be a pricetag for oppression and racist persecution.
    Compared to the outrageous injustices suffered by the victims, it bothers me little.

    [Police Officers] should be scared - petrified - for their lives.

    Nor is it just that such murderous outrages don't "bother" him, he celebrated and champions them.

    If you haven't yet, don't feed the troll. Best to just put him on "ignore".

    Why would stupid people want to kill other people because of their skin colors? Aren't we going backward like in the 50s?

    “The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
