Police: Dallas Shooting Suspect Micah Johnson “Wanted To Kill White People”
July 8, 2016 8:07 AM

Image Image

DALLAS (CBSDFW/1080 KRLD) – In the aftermath of the Thursday night ambush in downtown Dallas that left 5 police officers dead and several more wounded, very little is known about the shooting suspects.

According to Dallas officials, one male suspect is dead and three more, two men and one woman are in custody.

Two men were stopped on I-35 after fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed following the shooting. A woman who was near the parking garage where the shooting took place has also been detained.

At a Friday morning press conference, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings began by saying that due to the ongoing investigation, “We’re not going to tell you anything about the suspects. We will when it’s the right time, now is not the right time.”

However, Dallas Police Chief David Brown confirmed the death of one gunman, later identified by CBS News as of 25-year old Micah Xavier Johnson of Mesquite, the suspect that police cornered in a parking garage at El Centro College in the downtown area immediately following the shooting.

Killed by explosive device delivered via robot.
The robot did NOT try and shoot him in leg, or shoot gun out of his hands…. Sounds like even the cops robots are raciss!

As one of us I sadly admit: Many members of our military leave (or are currently in service) and choose to hate the government for any reason after their service.

While I am proud of my service I have to admit that since my deployments and terms of service in the US NAVY I am an official VETERAN.... I also have a strong distrust for all forms of government especially at a federal level after seeing personally how things operate.

This guy was apparently just a bit off his rocker and I do not mean to defend his actions. This was horrible and none of it makes any sense at all. But I still see where each side finds it's horrendous motives.

EDIT: To be clear I think this should be considered hate or terror crime and they should all fry for being directly or indirectly involved in sniping innocent officers and others.

This list of facts just gave me a real knot in my stomach. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THOSE OF US WHO LOVE IT!

I can say that we understand on some level what those families are going through. What a horrible event from any perspective honestly.

EDIT: Kelly File covering this now.

I noted at CTH that I heard mention (on FNC) that Johnson was involved in a Sexual Harassment issue in Afghanistan and sent home.

I heard confirmed by his lawyer... suggesting that a "Honorable Discharge" was a SNAFU in paper work...

Exclusive: Photo of the Saiga AK-74 Rifle used at Dallas Shooting
By SOFREP 07.09.2016

Image

A source told SOFREP and thearmsguide.com that when Dallas SWAT made entry after the detonation of the explosive device, they encountered a Saiga AK-74 style semiautomatic rifle on the floor among the rubble. The weapon reportedly had a 30 round magazine, single point sling, Magpul folding stock, and a rail system with a red dot sight.

The Saiga AK-74 is a semiautomatic version of the venerable AK-47. The AK-74 fires a smaller 5.45 X 39 cartridge more like that of the AR-15. Saiga is a Russian commercial company which imports rifles into the United States. The Saiga is at the more expensive end of AK style rifles.

R2FU - The MoFo Stopper................

‘R2FU Murderbot’ used to kill Dallas police terror assassin, a detailed breakdown SOFREP Original Content
By Buck Clay 07.10.2016#North America News Email Share Tweet

Image
The Multi-functional, Agile, Remote-Controlled Robot IV, or MARCbot IV, is a portable and easy to use, light-weight – for a robot – (200lbs), reconnaissance robot that can spot explosive devices, enemy positions and danger areas, which function via a series of cameras and a controller similar to that of a Playstation.

Robots like the MARCbot can be modified with attachments to detect landmines, and pressure plates, or dig to uncover buried explosives. In the field, almost anything that can be found on the ground can be used on a robot – including weapons.

From CTH...

Useful reference summary of SOME of the BLM false memes

Quote:
John Galt says:
July 11, 2016 at 3:17 pm

Cankles:
“The deaths of Alton and Philando are the latest in a long and painful litany of African Americans killed in police incidents – 123 so far this year alone. We know the names of other victims, too: Tamir Rice. Sandra Bland. Walter Scott. Dontre Hamilton. Laquan McDonald. Eric Garner. Michael Brown. Freddie Gray. Brandon Tate-Brown.”

Alton – resisting arrest, tasered, shot while still resisting arrest and attempting to pull gun from pocket.

Philando – armed robbery suspect shot with gun in lap after disobeying police instructions not to touch gun.

Tamir Rice — shot after brandishing realistic replica firearm and disobeying police instructions three times. Investigation report: shooting was reasonable — no charges filed.

Sandra Bland — An autopsy conducted by the Harris County medical examiner ruled Bland’s death a suicide and said it found no evidence of a violent struggle. Police stated that Bland had used a plastic garbage bag to hang herself. In December 2015, a grand jury declined to issue an indictment in connection to Bland’s death.

Walter Scott — shot to death after fleeing, assaulting cop, taking cop’s taser. Police officer charged with murder.

Dontre Hamilton — shot to death after taking police officer’s baton and beating police officer over the head. Shooting ruled self-defense, no charges filed.

Laquan McDonald — shot to death by police officer after slashing patrol car tire with knife and ignoring repeated instructions to drop knife. Police Officer Jason Van Dyke charged with 6 counts of murder.

Eric Garner — died as a result of “compression of neck (chokehold), compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.” Asthma, heart disease, and obesity were cited as contributing factors. There was no damage to the windpipe or neckbones. Grand jury decided not to indict police. Feds reportedly “at odds” over bringing charges.
http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/02/politics/ ... rges-odds/

Michael Brown — shot to death after strong arm robbery of store and attacking police officer. Police officer not charged after local and federal investigations.

Freddie Gray — died in hospital a week after suffering neck injury in police van. Apparently bogus politically motivated charges by Mosby have resulted in acquittals of police officers by black judge.

Brandon Tate-Brown — “Police say one of the two officers spotted a gun wedged between the passenger seat and the center console. They ordered him out of the car and that’s when he allegedly started struggling with the officers. It was captured on grainy video surveillance.
Police say Tate-Brown eventually broke free and tried to get his gun and that’s when one of the officers shot him once in the head. “This was not the case of an unarmed man shot while running away. It’s a case of a struggle and of Mr. Brandon Tate-Brown’s attempt to get his illegal gun,” Williams said. Williams says the gun had been stolen and had Tate-Brown’s DNA on it.” No charges filed against police.

So what Cankles is actually complaining about is mostly cops defending themselves against attacking perps.

Gunman Was Gregarious Until Army Career Ended In Disgrace
July 15, 2016 10:54 AM

DALLAS (AP) — He was disarmed in the middle of a war zone and placed under 24-hour escort. The most humiliating part was that everyone in Micah Johnson’s unit in Afghanistan knew why: He was accused of stealing a female soldier’s panties.

Johnson’s aspirations to a military career were over. Now he faced removal from the Army. The well-liked, easygoing young black man whose friendships were described as colorblind was suddenly deeply shamed and ostracized.

People who knew him, both before and after, say he was never the same.

Remember this guy? He was stopped at 1:20AM this morning for having high-beam lights on. The registration on his car was expired and he didn't have a valid driver's license. He was arrested for outstanding warrants. This is a GOOD outcome, showing what happens when you obey what a police officer tells you to do. :)
