Five Dallas Police Officers were executed over the weekend while protecting the lives of those protesting them. It’s an atrocity almost too horrible for words. In the sorrow-filled aftermath, there’s been some beautiful reactions and advice:
Donald Trump’s reaction is excellent:
Coffey Anderson gives a great tutorial on how to deal with a traffic stop. No matter your color, show this to your children. It will keep them safer.
An oldie-but-goodie version of this is Chris Rock’s video titled, “How not to get your ass kicked by the police”:
When Americans are interviewed, it’s actually encouraging:
In Dallas, the Black Lives Matters folks crossed paths with some counter protesters. This is what happened:
Perhaps the most encouraging voice to speak after the Dallas massacre: Police Chief, David Brown:
In his six years as police chief, David Brown has endured profound tragedy — in many different ways.
On Thursday night, a sniper gunned down four of his Dallas police officers and killed an additional officer.
Shortly after he earned the rank of chief, Brown lost his own son in a police-related shooting — after his son shot and killed an officer.
As Brown prepares for several police funerals, he faces yet another grueling challenge: trying to lead a grieving department amid anti-police tensions across the country.
“We’re hurting. Our profession is hurting. Dallas officers are hurting. We are heartbroken,” Brown said. “There are no words to describe the atrocity that occurred to our city. All I know is this: This must stop, this divisiveness between our police and our citizens.”
These discouraging days make me think of this from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
There’s some good in the world. It can be difficult to remember that when evil prevails.
