Like most people (there may be exceptions, but they're psychos), I was shocked and appalled by the Dallas mass shooting that claimed the lives of five law enforcement officers. I see this mass shooting as a microcosm of everything that is wrong with our society: a toxic intersection of racial animus, untreated mental illness (PTSD), and, of course, the preponderance of high-powered firearms that can fill the air with hot lead at an alarming rate.
I don't think that this latest attack is going to change anything- hell, the massacre of twenty kindergarteners and their brave teachers didn't change anything. Meanwhile, I have no doubt that the mainstream media will strive to pin the blame on the Black Lives Matter movement and the Kenyan Usurper. At least the Dallas police chief seems to be a really good guy, I just have a sinking feeling that the demagogues with the megaphones will outshout any calls for reconciliation and healing.
Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the surreal bit about a bomb wielding robot being used to take down the shooter... it seems that somebody set up us the bomb will become a major component of police emergency response. Hopefully, the robots will be unable to differentiate between skin colors, it's the root of the problem.
