Dallas Police Shot - Page 2

post #16 of 146
Was not expecting to wake up to a death toll. Terrible. In some fucked up way I almost hope this was ISIS because if it's BLM then we've got a whole new set of problems. Media will claim the shooters had no affiliation the group and ignore past videos of BLM wanting dead cops. I hope we don't start hearing "sniper rifle."

BLM is bunch of black racists and whites with lots of self-hatred, not surprised this comes out of this movement several of their members called for this

"Tactical pants." Oh no, Velcro and reinforced gussets.

Congrats, both the right and left are immediately stupid as shit with their politicization. And yes, I'll take those bets.

It's extremely unlikely that this was carried out by a right-wing group. If it's BLM, the nation of Islam or ISIS, it doesn't really matter in the eyes of the people running the country. Guns are going to be blamed.

edit: Dallas police give press conference - shooter said he wanted to "kill white cops."

Maybe now America will get behind some Black Gun Control: or

Apparently police took out the suspect by driving in a robot with a bomb attached and blowing him up. That is some 1980s Philly PD level of ingenuity.

In the Chief's comments he says the suspect stated he was upset about BLM, stated he hated white people, and wanted to kill white people, especially cops.

I heard on the radio that he claimed bombs where hidden around him and in the general area. So using a robot with a bomb makes some sense. They would want to set any possible explosives he hid off before entering to take the suspect out.

So, anybody want to speculate on how many cops would have died if they'd been "militarized" with body armor and rifles like the much-maligned cops at the Ferguson riots?

So anybody here want to speculate how many cops would have died if they'd been in tanks and apcs like the much-maligned troops in Iraq? If more people and cops had rpgs, these BLM tanks would have been stopped.

ps. would this armor stop rifle rounds?

Level III & III+ will stop the most common military rifle rounds, up to and including a .308. They are widely available. I have level III steel plates.

It depends on the rifle, the range and the particular armor. Generally no, but there is some added protection in marginal situations, and helmets can make a big difference.

Bullets go both ways. If I own a gun because I think I might need to defend myself, it seems prudent to assume the other person(s) might be shooting at me.
