This has made me physically ill. This is another horrible example of what the Obama admin and the rest of the democrat party has caused. And stop saying don’t jump to conclusions. These cops were slaughtered. Obama has blood on his hands.
He has done nothing but stir hatred up in this country. So much for him bringing everyone together. If he had any heart and soul…he would have come out and said STOP KILLING OUR POLICE OFFICERS. These are evil times we are living in. This is horrific.
God be with the families of these police officers. These are heroes. Time to rise up America! Enough is enough.
Godspeed to the heroes lost.

They were military veterans, husbands and fathers who served the city of Dallas – and died protecting the rights of fellow Americans to criticize their brethren in blue.
Five police officers – four from the city’s main department and one from Dallas Area Rapid Transit were killed by a racist sniper late Thursday as they guarded anti-police brutality marches at a march. By Friday afternoon, three had been identified: Brent Thompson, Michael Krol, and Patrick Zamarripa.
Thompson, 43, who joined the Dallas Area Rapid Transit police department in 2009, was the first member of the 27-year-old department to die in the line of duty. A former Marine, he had married a fellow police officer just two weeks ago, officials said.
“Our hearts are broken,” DART spokesperson Morgan Lyons said. “This is something that touches every part of our organization.”
After serving in the Marines, Thompson later worked for a private Pentagon contractor that hired and trained Iraqi and Afghan police in the concepts of “democratic policing.” The instruction included training in how to avoid an ambush, according to his LinkedIn page.
“I was responsible for the day to day operations conducted by our American police officers who trained and mentored the Iraqi Police,” he wrote.
Krol, 40, was a Detroit native who joined the Dallas Police Department in 2007 after working as a sheriff’s deputy in the Detroit area.
Zamarripa, 32, a five-year Dallas Police Department veteran, served three tours in Iraq with the Navy, according to the Washington Post. He was married and was the father of a 2-year-old daughter. Read More
