Rawlings said Friday that he was not sure how the suspect died or what weapons were found on him.

He says police have swept the area where the standoff took place and found no explosives.

Snipers opened fire on police officers in the heart of Dallas Thursday evening, killing five officers and injuring six others during protests over two recent fatal police shootings of black men.

So you are justifying it because its over a year ago??

This hatred needs to be condemned by the black community leaders and liberals like you.

Obama has helped this you of environment to flourish...just recently he gave legitimacy to the "black lives matter" low lives by saying the black community does have a problem with cops. Maybe the fact that 75% of all Crime is committed by blacks (proven statistics) could have something to do with the fact that cops have to get into altercations with them!
