The tragic events of Thursday, July 7th have by now reached the eyes and ears of our nation. 5 police officers were senselessly killed and 7 others were shot by snipers in Dallas, TX, with two of those shot being civilians.
The huge blow to the police community comes just days after the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of the police. Both black men were completely unarmed and both of their deaths were caught on camera.
Now, video footage from the terrifying scene has emerged of one of the suspected gunmen as he unloads into a crowd of people from behind a pillar. Time will tell if this suspect has been brought into custody and exactly what has transpired but for now this is all we have.
We are one nation and we must stand together. Reach out to your local police force and thank them for their service. Reach out to your friends within the black community and console them for the senseless deaths they have had to endure this week. Finally, reach out to your local lawmakers and demand that the corruption within the system is put to rest.
