One suspect in custody, another dead.

Snipers shot 11 officers in Dallas, TX, during a protest over the shootings by police in Louisiana and Minnesota.

Police have both suspects in custody.

A fourth has passed away.

Now the department says the snipers shot 11 officers.

The suspects shot the officers from an elevated position. Two officers are currently in surgery while three remain in critical condition.

For me this really highlights the irrational way Obama came out and condemned the police yet again without all the facts in yet. He’s not directly responsible for those snipers but his words did absolutely nothing to cool the situation either.

    “Irrational?” It was highly calculated.

    Obozo and his peretually racially embittered ilk have been fanning the flames of contrived racial grievance for a long time before this terrible incident.

    They’ve been inciting the “social justice” mob at every opportunity to score cheap political points and promoting fallacious narratives of pervasive police racism, with a total disregard for the facts, in numerous high-profile cases where the evidence plainly did not support the narrative that racial animus was to blame for the victims’ demises (e.g., Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, etc.).

    Obozo made his warped moral compass clear when he sent officials from DOJ and his Administration to the funeral of thug criminal Michael Brown, the so-called “gentle giant” who robbed and battered a store clerk and then battered and attempted to kill a cop.

    The good news for Mr. Obama is that under the new FBI Comey guidelines, he cannot be prosecuted for Inciting to Riot because it would be impossible to prove he intended through his comments to have these specific police officers murdered. No current federal prosecuter would pursue thiscase.

      Milhouse in reply to LeftWingLock. | July 8, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      You have no idea what you’re talking about. Comey has nothing to do with it; 0bama could never have been prosecuted for incitement, and no prosecutor would ever have pursued such a plainly invalid charge.

Obama has been stoking the coals of racial animosity since early in his first term. He would have lost in 2012 without going full on racist. What a failure and a disgrace. His legacy will be crushing debt, a failed health plan, the middle East in flames, multiple govt agencies weaponized for political retribution and now this, a race war.

    Yes, but per his homey Comey, he didn’t intend to do it.

    Speaking of a bad legacy: think of Comney’s.

      Milhouse in reply to TheFineReport.com. | July 8, 2016 at 4:57 pm

      Um, intent is an element of almost all crimes. 0bama bears a large share of the moral responsibility for this shooting. He does not bear any legal responsibility at all. There is nothing he could ever have been charged with.

    And generically accusing people of racism… people you don’t even know, is just cruel and stupid.

    guyjones in reply to Paul. | July 8, 2016 at 2:03 am

    All true, and, yet, Obozo’s fawning admirers on the Left still dutifully worship at his feet. Such is the power of blind fealty to a cult of personality which eviscerates all notions of objective appraisals of character and policy outcomes. Crone Hilliavelli commands nearly the same level of irrational adulation.

    Clinger in reply to Paul. | July 8, 2016 at 10:35 am

    Mission Accomplished.

    He had fundamentally transformed this Republic.

    May he BURN IN HELL for eternity.

It was only a matter of time.

The Democrats have been enabling the Black Lives Matter bullshit for months, holding up thug scum like Freddie Gray and Michael Brown as innocent angels gunned down by police.

Democrats own this bullshit. Black thugs have no fear. Violent crime is massively up in big cities because police have had enough and are doing the bare minimum.

I don’t know if Trump would make it better. But I can guarantee that under Hillary it will only get worse.

Well, isn’t it great that the FBI has arrived: I am sure they will get to the bottom of all of this.

Barry’s Boys, the American Brownshirts.

Comey’s first statement will be, “Hillary didn’t do it!”

The left should stop promoting class diversity and recognize individual dignity. As for the abortionists’ inspiration, this isn’t Obama’s progressive wars. The rules of engagement are not get aborted then respond.

    n.n in reply to n.n. | July 8, 2016 at 1:27 am

    The left attacked the “white” Hispanic-American and threatened anyone remotely related to him based on the premise of class diversity, and now these unlicensed abortionists planned and committed elective abortion of four men and injured nine more following the diversity policies of the government and civil rights businesses.

Texas has the death penalty.
Good.
Two more just got added to the list, although I’m a little puzzled how the police managed to take them alive.

Not the second amendment. This was a criminal act to commit elective abortion of innocent people. The weapons could have been illegally obtained or perhaps gifted from Obama’s weapons sales to cartels, terrorists, etc. Either way, the abortions were not committed in self-defense, and they are not a right recognized under the constitution or in any civilized society.

Seems like only yesterday the rules of law disappeared in the United States. How does that old saying go, you reap what you sow? Looks like the sowing is complete, the reaping has started.

I just finished watching Nightline. How disgusting. They sort of wrapped the Dallas shootings around the Minnesota shooting and the Louisiana shooting. IT was quite clear what side they wered rooting for.

The Democrats have set the stage with their racism, lies, and hate with a special hate for local police.

1) Watch who the Dems blame for the effects of their hate and lies? They will blame the police, Republicans, gun-owners, whites, and other usual suspects hated by the left. The Dems own this violence. They have created the modern vigilantes — the black version of the old Democrat KKK. Is the BLM the neo-KKK with just the color reversed?

2) Watch to see how the Dems apply “intention” in this crime.

The racism, corruption, and hate of and by the left (embodied in the Democrat party) is out in the open. Will the honest, law-abiding, and non-racist blacks continue to remain silent as the BLM thugs destroy civilization in the name of all blacks? Whites had a major role in stopping the white KKK. Will blacks have a major role in stopping the neo-KKK?

Democrats party in action. See if anything changes today.

Why is the FBI,ATF or any federal agency engaging in a police activity in Dallas? Under what authority does the federal government have to menace or impend local Dallas and Texas state officials?

    This morning I heard on the local news that a black man was found hanging in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park which has been primarily a gay gathering place for as long as I can remember. I don’t know that the gay issue is relevant but it’s a fact just as is the race of the dead person. If a suicide, gayness may be relevant. Not intending to pass judgment of any kind here.

    The ME said that the death is consistent with suicide but the mayor is inviting the FBI in. My guess is that all these locals want the Feds in to keep from being blamed if the facts don’t support the usual immediate reactions.

    I’m concerned that after the Hillary debacle, the FBI may feel that they have something to prove.

      Paul in reply to hvlee. | July 8, 2016 at 9:19 am

      Piedmont is not ‘primarily a gay gathering place.’. It’s a beautiful park surrounded by nice neighborhoods that is frequented by everybody in Midtown and the Highlands. Yes Atlanta has a large gay population, but Piedmont is a family place first and foremost.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to hvlee. | July 8, 2016 at 3:49 pm

      The ME said that the death is consistent with suicide but the mayor is inviting the FBI in.

      Were it just a mere white male, the mayor would not have made that call. But, a black man? Bring in the FBI, the bloodhounds, helicopters, and the best forensics team the taxpayers can afford.

    Milhouse in reply to Paul In Sweden. | July 8, 2016 at 5:01 pm

    The FBI is involved because killing a policeman is a federal crime.

DieJustAsHappy | July 8, 2016 at 6:00 am

Much prayer. Much, much prayer for the deceased. for the families and relatives and friends, for law enforcements officers in general, and for our nation. Much prayer.

Five now dead. Cue the gun control crowd, because that’s obviously the cause. Yup, just heard Obama blame guns.

And presto, Hillary is off the front page. #tinfoil

Police have both suspects in custody. That would make sense if one is dead, dont they check things? I always find it odd, they catch/kill them right off the bat, is this a False Flag involving Police? Why wouldnt they have been long gone from that garage by the time Police got there? As said above, now Killary is off the main page another distraction to make that happen? Found out yesterday Comey and Clintons go back 20 yrs together to Monica, who was the guy helping Bill by letting no charges happen? Comey

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to gotcha. | July 8, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    I will likely get down-ticked as well, but “false flag” DID cross my mind last night. Not – as you speculate – to get Mrs. Clinton off the front page; it is more an effort to get the pot stirred good and hard for a Long Hot Summer, and to further Ear Leader’s efforts with the push for gun confiscation.

OnlyRightDissentAllowed | July 8, 2016 at 9:48 am

I just read through all the comments here. I was tempted to respond to a few, but decided it wasn’t worth the energy.

The combination of deflection, defensiveness, self-pity, prejudice, and irrationality is staggering.

I will point out just 2 of the many, many points I could bring up. Recently 2 black men, without a history of criminality, and with permits for concealed carry were shot dead in questionable circumstances. There was not one article in this site on them.

I have read comments on this site that people need their guns because they may need take action when the government becomes oppressive. Without condoning in any way shape or form the actions of the Dallas cop killers, I think it is ironic that a site that celebrates (legal)insurrection should have the whole community of knee-jerks jump out with their pet issues before much is known. Yes, n.n this was caused by abortion. Yes, to the rest of you, this was Obama’s and Clinton’s fault. What isn’t?

BTW, black lives do matter. For 400 years from slavery to Jim Crow, to segregation (de jure or de facto) to ‘driving while black’ it seems that the commentators, here, have an extremely prejudiced view of the way this country works. No that does not justify Dallas. It is just a fact that commentators here are full of self-pity and blinded to the realities of life as a black man in this country.

As to who is using this for political purposes, this is the site that seems to be doing that. This site celebrated Bundy. Had Bundy been black, I doubt it would have.

Because of the way the population in this country is distributed and gerrymandering, the majority of this country does not control the Senate or the House. The majority can elect the President. Any claim that Obama or Clinton hate and want to destroy this country is BS. They differ in what they believe is best, but they are patriotic Americans, too. God help you if that majority ever decides that they don’t like the way we are governed and takes up arms. Last time, the government that you so hate used Cointellpro to destroy legal dissent. It is the left, not the right that has suffered at the hands of the government. If you think Obama is some radical, you should be grateful that the real radicals have all been killed off or jailed. Wallow in your self-pity. Meanwhile the real victims of injustice continue to receive more of the same. On the rare occasion when just is served, I can count on this site to howl the loudest – and to twist and misrepresent the facts.

    How much do you get paid to spread your propaganda and who are your paymasters?

    Everything you type is a lie. Not that anyone will buy it. You’re wasting your time here.

    OnlyRightDissentAllowed

    Doing what the left/progressives do all the time spin the story and Obfuscate. Nothing but muttering and trying to confuse what happened in Dallas.

    5 Dallas Police were assassinated while they were protecting the right of people to peacefully protest in downtown Dallas!

    And this is the crap you write! Shame on you!

    I’ve given you an upvote. I for the most part don’t agree with you & I think you’re doing some of the things you charge others with in your response, nevertheless you raise some valid points.

    This site does to a degree display a site common point of view. But then so do most other sites. Including most on the left you’d be more comfortable with.

      Barry in reply to secondwind. | July 8, 2016 at 4:03 pm

      “…nevertheless you raise some valid points.”

      No it doesn’t. Not one.

      “This site does to a degree display a site common point of view.”

      Bullshit. Plenty of commenters here have been critical of cops, when warranted, myself included. There is no “common point of view”, unless you cannot read.

        Just a tad touchy aren’t we Barry?
        My comment wasn’t particularly directed at you seeing I don’t know who you are.

        Did I touch a nerve?

        Good, that’s why I continue to comment on Thursday

          Correction :
          Eliminate the last word Thursday. Replace Thursday with the word “it.”

          That’s enough.

          Barry in reply to secondwind. | July 8, 2016 at 7:39 pm

          Touchy?

          Suppose so. Seeing 5 police officers murdered will do that.

          Some commie inspired butthole comes along making false assertions to justify the taking of those lives and you find some way to agree with him. So, I call bullshit. There is nothing about LI that is monolithic. You are evidence of that.

          You don’t know me. So what?

        “I for the most part don’t agree with you.” Yet in Barry’s absolutist world that translates to my agreeing with him.

        FYI that’s one instance I do agree with the writer. You jump to conclusions & make assertions on very little evidence. That’s fairly common on this site from likeminded people of your mindset.

        I’m done with you. Take what you will from this response. Your type always does. And this come’s from years of experience with people like you. It’s not something I’m pulling out of my ass.

          Barry in reply to secondwind. | July 9, 2016 at 12:48 am

          “I’ve given you an upvote. … nevertheless you raise some valid points.”

          What then, are the valid points raised?

          ……

          Are those crickets?
          Try real hard to read what you said and respond with something other than nonsense.
          Or just run and hide.

          I have addressed your points. You’ve not bothered to address my responses, you’ve just blown them off because you lack the comprehension level to be able to understand what I’m saying. I can’t do anything about that & you show no interest in addressing your inability to expand your mind beyond your own comfort zone &

          End statement:
          As an example, what part of “I’m done with you” don’t you understand?

          There is absolutely no point in having a conversation with a narrow minded bigot who knows everything he could possibly need to know. Every sentence you write expresses that belief. In common with the rest of your kind.

          Bye- bye.

          Barry in reply to secondwind. | July 9, 2016 at 1:14 pm

          “There is absolutely no point in having a conversation with a narrow minded bigot who knows everything he could possibly need to know.”

          Resorting to the “You are a racist”, the last refuge of a loser. I don’t care. Nothing I said had anything to do with race or bigotry you drooling moron. You haven’t said anything with respect to your “valid points”.

          “In common with the rest of your kind.”

          Bigot

          “Bye- bye.”

          Like I said, you’ll run and hide rather than address your assertion.

    “Recently 2 black men, without a history of criminality, and with permits for concealed carry were shot dead in questionable circumstances.”

    LIE #1: Only one of them had permits for concealed carry. The other one was a felon and sex offender in possession illegally.

    “For 400 years from slavery to Jim Crow, to segregation (de jure or de facto) to ‘driving while black’ it seems that the commentators, here, have an extremely prejudiced view of the way this country works. ”

    LIE #2: Of course, all of those were common to EVERY society evear formed. They still exist in the non-Christian nations of the world, especially in Africa. It took whites, and specifically white Judeo Christians, to end these things here.

    I’ll let other people shoot down the rest of your lies.

    DieJustAsHappy in reply to OnlyRightDissentAllowed. | July 8, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    Read “The War on Cops” by Heather Mac Donald and then get back to us if you dare.

    Recently 2 black men, without a history of criminality, and with permits for concealed carry were shot dead in questionable circumstances. There was not one article in this site on them.

    The facts are not yet in on those two stories, so there’s nothing to write about yet. Once we know the facts it will be appropriate to comment, analyze, and make informed speculations.

    For instance, were these two men without a history of criminality? I don’t know that; do you? Did they have CCWs? Again, I don’t know that; do you? What we do know is that we have a long record of such cases that are initially reported as you did, and where it turns out that the facts were otherwise, and the shootings were 100% justified. Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, all 100% justified, and yet the rage continues unabated. In such an environment you will forgive me if I’m skeptical about these two reports.

    Meanwhile we know beyond all possible doubt that the Dallas shootings were unjustified, and it’s clear that a large share of moral responsiblity lies with those who have assiduously promoted among black people the myth that the police are gunning for them. It’s completely appropriate to write about that. The facts that are not yet in are not going to change it.

    I have read comments on this site that people need their guns because they may need take action when the government becomes oppressive.

    The primary reason why people need their guns is to protect themselves from criminals. But the primary public good that an armed population does is to deter the government from tyranny. The likelihood of a legitimate armed insurrection is tiny; but the possibility of such a thing keeps governments from provoking one.

    Without condoning in any way shape or form the actions of the Dallas cop killers, I think it is ironic that a site that celebrates (legal)insurrection should have the whole community of knee-jerks jump out with their pet issues before much is known.

    What facts could possibly come out that would negate what has been written about it?

    BTW, black lives do matter. For 400 years from slavery to Jim Crow, to segregation (de jure or de facto) to ‘driving while black’ it seems that the commentators, here, have an extremely prejudiced view of the way this country works.

    Only innocent lives matter, black, white, or green with purple spots. The lives of scum like Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown do not matter. And there is no such thing as “driving while black”; those who promote that myth bear a heavy responsibility for building up the resentments that led to Dallas.

    This site celebrated Bundy. Had Bundy been black, I doubt it would have.

    And that is a thoroughly baseless slander.

Note well, Progressives: When you embrace BLM, you are holding a viper to your breast.

God bless those who run toward the gunfire.
