If these people acted out because they believe they, or people with the same skin color, are being unfairly targeted by law enforcement, at what point do we finally begin to address their concerns?
What else can they do to get our attention?
They protest peacefully and speak out about how they feel...we tell them to quit being lazy and get a job.
They form groups like BLM to tell us they have had enough....we say All Lives Matter and dismiss their cause as racist.
If we continue to trivialize their concerns and dismiss it out of shear ignorance, this is the sort of result we can expect.
We have to listen to these people and let them make their case. Otherwise, we put these people in a position of helplessness and people will act out when they feel helpless.

I'm sure he did not have endless supplies of ammunition.
Even when I was in the military, we were told to wait them out when they were cornered if intelligence wanted them for information gathering.
would you be alright with bringing up the same excuses for them had they gone out to kill people at wallstreet?
Which protest you approve of is completely irrelevant.
On top of that the BLM movement has had a ton of their demanded granted to them and that is a lot more the occupy protest had gotten so falling your own arguments and reasoning the OWS has a even better reason to go out guns blazing. Stop being such a agenda driven hypocrite.

no blow him up like an isis fighter guys just as bad
Im thinking a bit more long term. A police force with suicide robots
I agree that activists should have been listened to, they still should but not because it was going to lead to this because it didn't lead to this. This is because some subversive, evil, sick assholes decided to get together and kill some cops.
Come on, in this climate both nationally and internationally, we cannot discount the idea of outside actors.
No doubt. We have no idea at this point. In this climate, anything is possible.

So are the other three suspects actual "suspects" still? If it was a lone gunman, why did reports repeatedly say multiple snipers triangulating their positions?
