So, will law enforcement call this a “hate crime?”

It’s always important to get the facts right, especially when tempers are high.

It was NOT an anti-police protest. It was a peaceful protest.

Peaceful? (Face-palm!!) All evidence to the contrary. And if there were not anti-police sentiments, then why are five of them dead?

The actions of 2-4 extremists who were not part of the protest march in no way reflect the sentiments and feelings of those individuals who marched in Dallas last night. While you may not be able to grasp it, people with more than one functioning brain cell can be pro-black lives and pro-police and can mourn the loss of innocent black men at the hands of police officers while simultaneously mourning the five officers killed last night. On second thought, what am I doing? I know you’re just here to troll reasonably minded people with your base and intolerable denseness.

ACP “No way reflect”…Organizer Dr. Hood was not expecting it either…but there it was !

From an earlier link supporting the demonstration
“Hood said the crowd in Dallas was taunting the police, but he never believed shots would be fired at police officers.”

In past demonstrations Black Lives Matter supporters have chanted “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” and “What do we want? Dead cops.”

This organization even refuses to accept court decisions where officers are found not guilty or where an investigation finds an officer did not commit a crime. And of course they say nothing about black on black crime.

Out of infinite curiosity, have you actually been to a BLM protest or are you repeating what you’ve heard from Brietbart?

I heard both quotes when they were broadcast on news show. The “dead cops” was in NYC and the “pigs in a blanket” was in Minnesota. I have not and will not attend a “BLM protest.”

And from these two statements you’re willing to paint an entire movement in one particular light? I guess by the same logic every Trump voter is a virulent anti-Semite?

It was a peaceful demonstration and police were providing traffic control and logistical support to a group of people trying to exercise their First Amendment rights. Why you feel the need to come in and take a dump on the whole thing is beyond me.

I condemn an organization whose members refuse to accept decisions made by a judge in the Gray case and the DOJ and the DA in the Brown case. In other incidents officers are immediately criticized even before we know relevant facts. And yes, I do condemn the above statements as would all rational thinking folks.

“I condemn an organization whose members refuse to accept decisions made by a judge So I take it you’re pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, and believe OJ didn’t do it? “I condemn an organization whose members refuse to accept decisions made by … the DOJ.” So I take it you’re no longer voting Republican and you won’t be voting for Donald Trump this November? Just because a judge/jury/grand jury/prosecutor/investigative agency makes a decision, it doesn’t mean you have to like it. The folks who protested in Baltimore, Ferguson, and elsewhere were vocalizing their displeasure with a system that, all too often, feels… Read more »

“So I take it you’re pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, and believe OJ didn’t do it?” I can disagree or agree on a variety of issues and decisions including actions of law enforcement. The problem with the national BLM group is that they believe police are wrong on all high profile/controversial use of force cases even when evidence shows use of force was justified. Also note fatal use of force cases are relatively few given the huge number of daily police/citizen contacts yet BLM and others choose to magnify certain incidents. And where is the BLM criticism of the high level of… Read more »

Drew, quick question: where did the protestors come from who were dancing and celebrating after the massacre and taunting the cops and looting the 7-11? In keeping with your narrative of peace, I’m assuming they were bused in separately after the original group peacefully departed after a soul wrenching rendition of Kumbaya??
