It’s devastating what has happened in not only Texas but two other states. In Dallas, Texas at a Black Lives Matter Protest, five officers were fatally shot, and seven were injured. There were also two civilians that were wounded in the shooting. It is frustrating because those cops were there to do their duty, protect and serve. There is no reason they should have been killed or even harmed. Especially, during a peaceful protest. The shooter, Michah Johnson, however, was not a part of the Black Lives Matter Protest. He was upset with what had happened to Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana. Both men were shot and killed by police. Both men were carrying guns. May that police who were killed and others wrongfully murdered in this battle for racial equality rest in peace.
