Deadliest Attack On US Police Since 9/11
On the 7th of July, 2016, a #BlackLivesMatter protest was coming to an end in Dallas, Texas. The protest was to demonstrate frustration over recent deaths including Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. This event took place around the El Centro College. When the majority of the crowd started to leave, the surrounding police officers were suddenly ambushed by a sniper.
The ambush was executed by a man named Micah Xavier Johnson. He was an Army Reserve Afghan War veteran. His motive has been reported to be that he was angry with and wanted to kill all white people, especially officers. In the attack, five officers were killed, nine were injured, and two bystanders were also injured. Eventually, the attack lead to a standoff which ended with a remote control kamakaze police robot terminating Micah.
