Protests Around the Nation

The protests occurred in Atlanta,  Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Nashville, New York, Phoenix, Rochester, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Paul and Washington, D.C.

“Black Lives Matter, as far as I’m concerned, is a radical hate group; and for that purpose alone, I think the leadership of this country needs to look at little bit harder at that particular group. The consequences of what we saw in Dallas is due to their efforts.” El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen at a press conference

Weekend of Rage

The “weekend of rage” – which sounds suspiciously like the “Day of Rage” terminology used by Palestinians Terrorists like Hamas.

The Dallas Police Headquarters briefly went into lockdown after a “Serious threat” was phoned in anonymously. After SWAT was deployed, an hours long search for any suspicious person found nothing.

San Antonio’s Police Department was fired upon Saturday night. A man was seen running from the scene. The Chief stated that though their building has been shot at before, it was suspicious that is happened during this heightened time of alert.

It is a war zone.
