About 2,000 angry protestors marched through downtown Oakland, blocking traffic on Interstate 880 and pouring red paint on the front door of an Oakland police station in solidarity with two black men fatally shot by police officers this week in Louisiana and Minnesota. Cars were backed up for hundreds of yards in both directions on the elevated downtown freeway after hundreds of protestors swarmed up the on-ramps around 8:45 p.m. and began dancing, playing music and spray-painting slogans on the pavement. Other protesters climbed to the top of a semitrailer that was stalled in the huge traffic jam. “Burn it to the ground,” one protester wrote in black spray paint in the middle of the freeway.

Well, Obama already uttered the gun control rhetoric with a "people with powerful weapons" blurb.
Looks like the gun control people may just get what they want...
A nice, safe country where only your privatized police forces have weapons and you have none when you realize they are no longer bound by the constitution to not infringe upon your rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of....whatever.
The constitution isn't for you, it's for them.

It would not be politically correct.
I don't know what it means, ask our friends, who are somehow not outraged that 17 people were shot, five of them killed.
I don't know what hillary teaches her supporters these days
BLM They should have already called a press conference to denounce immediately. It is needed for all to calm the masses.

very doubtful, if they have the weapons and ballistics match the who had what one, they are gonna meet mr pointy.
the public ain't gonna stand for any kind of plea deal, and i doubt very seriously that any prosecutor is going to offer any deals.
this was a attack on one of America's heartlands Dallas TX. you just ain't gonna get life for this. no matter who you are.

Explain why they couldn't have come up with it in 24 hours.
Appears plausible to me especially If they had military backgrounds.
