Warsaw, Poland – Obama Says America Is Horrified Over Dallas Attack

    U.S. President Barack Obama delivers remarks on the police shootings in Dallas after meeting with EU leaders at the NATO Summit in Warsaw, Poland July 8, 2016. REUTERS/Jonathan ErnstWarsaw, Poland – President Barack Obama said Friday that America is “horrified” by what appears to be a planned sniper shooting targeting police officers in Dallas, and he said there is no justification for the violence.

    In a brief statement to reporters, Obama said the investigation into the shooting continues but “what we do know is there has been a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement,” he said.

    Obama called the shooters motives “twisted” and vowed that “justice will be done.”

    “There’s no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement,” Obama said, noting that he had spoken with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and offered his support and condolences.

    Obama spoke from Warsaw, Poland, where he is meeting with NATO and European Union leaders. Obama arrived early Friday shortly before snipers opened fire on police officers, killing five officers and injuring six others during protests over two recent fatal police shootings of black men.

    Immediately after landing in Warsaw, and before the shootings, Obama had expressed solidarity with protesters earlier. In those comments, he aired his frustration with what he said were racial disparities in the criminal justice system.

    He also argued there was no contradiction between supporting law enforcement and working to see that biases in the justice system are rooted out.

    Similar statements about other shootings have stoked tensions with law enforcement, including with FBI Director James Comey, who has suggested the intense public focus on police officers’ conduct, fueled by caught-on-camera moments, may be inhibiting officers as they try to protect their communities.

    Aiming to pre-empt that concern, Obama said that speaking out about the issue is not an attack on police. He emphasized prior to the shootings that he and other Americans appreciate the risks police officers take and mourn officers who die in the line of duty.

    Obama emphasized another part of that message later Friday. He called the shootings a “wrenching reminder of the sacrifices” that police office make every day.

    1. Our president is an imbecile. He needs to assure Americans that every incident will be investigated, and justice will be served. Street justice is criminal, and will be dealt with via lethal force. The BLM movement must be outlawed until it can be conducted with humanity. This jungle behavior needs to be eradicated. But this president is black before he is President, and offers more support to wild, savage blacks than to American citizens. Will he appear at any of the officers’ funerals? Will he pardon the shooters after they are convicted? Obama has never been trustworthy, and Hillary y”sh won’t be either.

      • You can’t outlaw a movement — First Amendment.

        And the BLM protest last night was entirely peaceful according to Dallas police; some police even posed for photographs with the protesters.

        • You should hide your braindead brain, you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting this leftist rebel rouser, Muslim sympathizer, Cop hater, and Hillary.
          Your a disgrace.

          • Are you capable of discussing the merits of #7’s point without resorting to insults and labeling?

            Didn’t bother answering, the answer is obviously “NO”.

          • Charliehall is just another liberal idiot who loves Obama no matter how much damage he’s done. Obama created this atmosphere and whipped up the Frenzy the blacks are in, by saying “black community does have a problem with police violence.” Lowlife is always on the side of their terrorists and perpetrators instead of the victims! Trump 2016!

    2. Does this fool realize that he “created this environment by his comments” ?. Let’s all take a moment and thank the Good Lord that this fool is on his way out…..

      • I won’t be excited until he is actually out of the White House until then who’s to say he’s not creating this environment so he can call on martial law when the whole country goes in chaos because of this crap then he stays in there’s no elections

    3. You’re to blame, Mr. President, with your liberal lefty agenda of always blaming the police for doing their job of protecting Americans from mostly black street thugs.

    4. Black lives DON’T matter to blacks and the proof of that is the fact that most blacks are killed by other blacks, not white cops. So give me a break and stop trying to sell us your BS!

    5. all the makings of dark summer nights right out of the Alinsky playbook

      [You must help] the people in the community…feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. [An] organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives–agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values, to produce, if not a passion for change, at least a passive, affirmative, non-challenging climate. [You must] fan the embers of hopelessness into a flame of fight
      Great job POTUS Alinsky and papa Obama would be very proud of the mess you made the “Have Nots” you created love you as thier saviour and are rioting and killing just the way you planned it

    6. obumma should be charge with inciting to riot and be impeached. he wants this to declare martial law and prevent the November election. Image if we elect the witch what America will look like in 4 years. If she is elected I am moving
