    It remains an active-shooter situation. Police have asked everyone to get to safety and avoid downtown Dallas.

    The shots were fired as the march was moving down Lamar Street near Griffin.

    An officer at the scene told News 8's Marie Saavedra the shooter has a rifle. She described several volleys of quick bursts of gunfire.

    A bystander who was at the scene told News 8 the shooter stood by as the rally passed him, then opened fire on officers."

    Eleven Dallas law enforcement officers were shot, three fatally, by what is believed to be two snipers who opened fire during a demonstration downtown over recent police shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana, the Dallas police chief said.

    The snipers fired from an elevated positions on police officers minutes before 9 p.m., Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters.

    "We believe that these suspects were positioning themselves in a way to triangulate on these officers from two different perches in garages in the downtown area, and planned to injure and kill as many law enforcement officers as they could," he said. Some were shot in the back.

    Three of the 11 officers died, two are in surgery and three are in critical condition, Brown said."

    Video emerges of shooting
  14. '3 people in custody'
    Police Chief David Brown says three people are in custody over the Dallas shootings. A fourth person is exchanging gunfire with officers.

    "The suspect that we are negotiating with that has exchanged gunfire with us over the last 45 minutes has told our negotiators that the end is coming, and he is going to hurt and kill more of us, meaning law enforcement. And that there are bombs all over the place in this garage and in downtown.

    "So we are being very careful in our tactics so we don't injure our citizens in Dallas as we negotiate further."

    Well... not yet knowing anything about this conspiracy to kill cops other than that it happened and some cops were indeed killed, what comes to mind is:

    * If the purpose was to bring some kind of vigilante accountability to the police in general, this is doinitrong. The effect will presumably be to rally support behind police and bring further bleating calls for more impingements on individual freedoms, as well as to vilify gun owners and those who oppose police misconduct. BOOOO!

    * That notwithstanding, police can't expect to just keep killing innocent people and have there be no consequences. While I disagree with this shooting spree, it's not entirely surprising that some people were angry enough to do it. Where there is no effective accountability within the system (which is rather often), natural law dictates that there must be some imposed from outside the system. What that means is that this shooting spree also, in a way, could be seen as a repudiation of all of us, in that we have not upheld our responsibility to properly hold blue-clad people accountable for their crimes.

    I'm assuming that the motive of the shooters was the obvious one: that they were angry over police killing innocent people. That's only an assumption at this point.

    My tinfoil had it as, what better way to bring on a race war and ensure a Trump presidency than to target cops at a peaceful BLM protest. But thats just my tinfoil and YMMV.

    kkk anyone?

    No idea how trustworthy this is, but just dropping it here because of this bit.

    Based on some searching I did, there isn't much online about the author. That article is the only one he's written for that site. On Facebook there are several mentions of people with the same name, but everything I saw going back to 2012 was about other people. Google News searches for that name only turn up mentions of different people.
