Dallas Shooting
#1
I'm sure we have all been following the tragedy in Dallas but I heard something last night that got me thinking...

The Dallas Mayor and Texas Governor held a press conference last night and the Mayor answered a question about who the other people initially arrested were...his reply can be heard in this video at 13:40

Looks like they were a group of Texas Open Carry folks open carrying long rifles.. Nothing wrong with that, but in this situation, it looks like it could have been pretty ugly for them. What if the cops thought those people were the shooters and started firing at every civilian with a gun? It could have been even more deadly. What if the OC group decided to pull out their weapons and return fire on the suspected gunman? Again, cops may have fired back at them thinking they were the shooters!

What do you guys think? I would never want to be without a gun in this type of situation but I think it was probably a good idea, as an OC supporter caught in the action, to stay low and run for cover. Anyone trying to be a hero would have probably been shot by the police.

Thoughts?

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Apparently, citizens walking around with rifles didn't pose a problem, since none of them were shot by the police.

I'm assuming they were white, though.

Apparently this guy was carrying a rifle in Dallas. You can see the sling and the butt in this pic.

And because of the photo, he was identified as a "suspect", and the photo was tweeted out by the PD's social media account with the request "Please help up find him!"

He turned himself in after learning he was "wanted for questioning", even though he voluntarily gave his firearm TO an officer when the attack began.

During his "questioning" the police told him repeatedly that they had video footage of him firing the gun, as well as witnesses who saw him firing.

Hardly a textbook case of rights being respected.

Thank God his girlfriend wasn't holding a pack of Newports. They'd have shot him on sight.

It's looking like BLM is turning into everything the Black Panthers hoped to be. Some are talking about taking some of the Southern States and making their own country. Kind of ironic in a way.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I think whites are more heavily armed than blacks in a lot of southern states.

Just a hunch.Shrug
