Late last night and early this morning, Dallas police officers were protecting participants of a Black Lives Matters rally as they marched through downtown protesting the police shootings of two black men earlier this week. That’s when police were ambushed by two or more shooters who killed five officers, wounded seven more, and injured two civilians.
Protestors fled for their lives or allowed themselves to be bodily shielded by police officers, and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has a new name for them: “Hypocrites!”
According to Dallas News, Patrick said, "All those protesters last night, they turned around and ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to protect them. What hypocrites!"
Patrick also placed the blame for violence against police on Black Lives Matters, saying people “with big mouths are creating situations like we saw last night.”
He added, "I do blame people on social media with their hatred toward police. I do blame former Black Lives Matter protests. .... This has to stop." Do you agree with what he said?
