A Facebook page claiming to represent a black power group has posted messages claiming responsibility for the deaths of five police officers in Dallas.
The so-called Black Power Political Organization claimed on its Facebook account that it was behind the attack in which cops were picked out from an ‘elevated position’ – believed to be a multi-storey car park.
It came in the week of public outrage over the deaths of two unarmed black men shot by police.
There were initial reports there could have been up to three or four snipers involved in a co-ordinated attack during a peaceful Black Live Matter protest.
However – while two men and one women have been arrested in connection with the attacks – it’s being claimed tonight that police are operating on the theory of a ‘lone gunman’ being responsible.
This gunman has been named as Micah Xavier Johnson, from Texas, who served with the US Army Reserve for six years and served for a time in Afghanistan.
He was heavily-armed and killed by police – while holed up in the car park – in a robot-controlled explosive device after negotiations broke down.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said tonight he told negotiators before he died he was upset over recent police-involved shootings of African Americans and “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
Make no mistake about this ! it has nothing to do with black power groups no no no !!!! this is Obama’s doing !!! he is behind this
