Default Police shootings, mass shootings, terrorism, and humanity's descent into madness

It's getting ridiculous...

i don't have any solutions but man we gotta have some accountability. What has happened? what terrible needless tragedies. the latest two to come out have some video (haven't seen the Minnesota one yet but reading the story it sounds horrific that the guy got shot while puling out his ID).

Exclamation ACTIVE SHOOTERS IN DALLAS

@dallasnews: Dallas' @DPDChief says "2 snipers" shot "10 officers" with "3 officers deceased, 2 in surgery, 3 critical."

@NaomiMartin: "No suspects are in custody at this time. We ask that any citizen with information regarding the shootings tonight call 214-671-3482." -DPD

@samwhiteout: Every report shows #Dallas was completely peaceful until gunfire towards protestors and cops. Protestors were not shooting by all reports.

@MikeLeslieWFAA: Something people should understand nationally -- BLM & Dallas PD have respect for each other. DPD was protecting marchers. Snipers did this.

I moved away from Dallas almost 20 years ago but sorry to hear this has struck this community so randomly.

Any way to help support?

Sorry to hijack your thread... Cops have ID on one suspect in Dallas shootings, black male.

Looks like violence begets violence.

Brace yourself for a shitstorm, things are going to get a whole lot worse for everyone (especially black people).

I'd say it blew the lid right off the pot... Both of the cops who shot people in the last two days seemed overly paranoid about getting shot themselves -- that paranoia is about to go through the roof. More innocent black people are going to die because of this. Probably more cops too.

Nobody wins.

Oh man I just saw this. Everyone in dallas be safe

This is the worst possible response. More violence and in the setting of peaceful protests. Unfortunately this will only fuel racism and not help.

It's impossible. And with so much violence in the inner city, I wouldn't ask it of people.

And you see the difference in media coverage. One killing doesn't create an uproar... Doesn't create a ton of clicks... Doesn't bring in additional ad money.. So, you barely hear about it. Two murders do bring in a ton of clicks and higher ratings... So it's all over the place in the media. So, you can see how the media more than does their part to divide. Division is good for ratings. Angry black people makes for good ratings.

73 dead in Nice, France... Not really a police brutality post, but maybe the thread title should be changed to "OFFICIAL: Humans Have Gone Completely Batsh!t."

I've honestly wondered why this has not happened earlier. Not to sound crazy, but if a terrorist is truly looking for kill count, then just driving a truck into a crowd is much more efficient than using guns. This is also why banning guns doesn't really solve the problem. There are always other methods.

You're "Humans Have Gone Completely Bathsh!t" is actually the root of the problem. We've lost our respect for each other and the value of basic human life. I value my opinions, beliefs and morals, but I value yours as well. I believe that I may be right, but I have no problem with someone debating an opposing opinion which I may or may not agree with in the end.

The huge problem we have now with social media and even politics is that we are so extreme to the point where there is no debate. It's degenerated to name calling, internet memes, and funny one-liners where debate is near impossible. When it reaches that point, there is no respect for opposing opinions which results is no discussion.

Both are ex-vets.

I'd be surprised, if another shooting happens (pray not), it's not another ex-vet.
