POS Suspect Who Ambushed Dallas Police, Killing Five, Identified; Twitter Reacts

Last night in Dallas, Texas, police officers who were protecting Black Lives Matter protesters who were protesting against police, were ambushed and shot by snipers who positioned themselves in a triangulated fashion in order to shoot as many police officers as possible.

Police have identified 25-year-old Micah Xavier Johnson as one of the suspected snipers responsible for the ambush of Dallas police officers, killing five and injuring six more. Johnson reportedly had no criminal history and no ties to terrorism. He was killed after a shootout with authorities when a bomb squad’s robot was sent in to where he was holed up and hiding.

Prior to his death, Johnson told authorities that he wanted to hurt white officers. Although he claimed he was not part of any specific group, he did indicate that he sided with and was sympathetic to ‘Black Lives Matter.” Police Chief David Brown said,”The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter. He said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect said he wanted to kill white people.”

Micah Johnson’s act of domestic terrorism is one of the worst attacks on police in American history. He was reportedly an Army reservist. This is likely where he honed his skills used to carry out his racist attack. That should strike fear in everyone to know that someone who harbored such hatred that he wanted to kill white police had access to a military base.

Shockingly and sadly, some of the top tweets on the trending “Micah Xavier Johnson” on Twitter are not ones that condemn his suspected actions but rather are tweets from individuals angry that he is being referred to as Micah X.

You also have those who don’t believe Johnson has any responsibility for his murderous actions. The system made him do it, according to these morons.

Then, there’s this brilliant mind, and I’m being facetious, who identifies Johnson as “a black being killed with impunity who snapped.” If he was killed, then how could he have snapped? *smh*

The black supremacist group Black Political Power Organization (BPPO) has claimed responsibility for the attack on Dallas police officers and vow that there is more to come. They also encouraged people to “get their own sniper.”
