Editor’s Note: Mark Alley is a good friend who served for four decades in law enforcement. Mark has seen officers serving under him killed — he understands and mourns these fallen. Make no mistake, these police officers were there to protect people who were PROTESTING the police. Those Dallas officers ran TOWARD the shooting in an attempt to safeguard private citizens. We pray for their families. We must pray for our nation. Read on. Tami Jackson

And it started in Dallas, Texas last night. Five Dallas officers are dead, twelve were shot — in addition to two civilians.

Dallas police shooting: ‘Black Power group’ claims responsibility for police killings and warns of more assassinations to come
by Richard Wheatstone
“More Will Be Assassinated In The Coming Days! Do You Like The Work Of Our Assassins? Get Your Own Sniper” read a post on the Black Power Political Organisation Facebook account
A Facebook page claiming to represent a black power group has posted messages claiming responsibility for the deaths of five police officers in Dallas.
Five officers were gunned down by at least two shooters who picked out officers from an ‘elevated position’ – believed to be a multi-storey car park.
The so-called Black Power Political Organisation wrote on its Facebook account that it was behind the attack and that ‘more assassinations are coming’.
Isn’t it odd how Facebook and Twitter will immediately take down conservative accounts at the snap of a Leftist finger, but somehow manages to overlook the BPPO account as illustrated above, which regales and promotes snipers, rifles and assassination?
No bias there in social media, right?
Ladies and gentlemen, you are seeing the results of our first black president being the Divider-In-Chief instead of the Uniter-In-Chief.
I have written frequently here about the relationships with law enforcement and American politicians and, for that matter, the military as well.
I have written frequently about the importance of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, most prominently about the Second Amendment and its ability to protect American citizens and the First Amendment as well.
Instead of a uniter, Demorats, Leftists and our president have done much to striate, divide and separate our country. Barack Obama is the Fomenter-In-Chief. You are seeing his results.
I have just one question for you on the Left and your Demorats: what happens when you can no longer find people to serve in your law enforcement or military communities? What happens when people no longer want those jobs, because to be a law enforcement officer or a soldier is considered “unsophisticated” or “unenlightened”?
And what happens when, because your loving American government has disarmed you and gutted the Second Amendment as it certainly wishes to do, danger is at your door and there are no police to respond and you have no firearm with which to defend you or your family?
Will you pick up a lamp? A broom? A butter knife?
Because you can damned well be guaranteed that criminals will still have firearms and their evil miens will not have diminished over time.
