No charges for Dallas officers who killed sniper with robot bomb

(Reuters) - Dallas police officers who used a bomb-equipped robot to kill a sniper who shot five police officers during a protest in 2016 were not charged by a grand jury, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

Five officers were killed in a July 7, 2016, attack during a demonstration against police violence. Dallas police made the unusual decision to use a bomb mounted on a robot to kill the gunman who was holed up inside a parking garage.

[N.S.: First of all, five white policemen were murdered by a black man. I guarantee you that if a white man murdered five black policemen, Chris Kenning would emphasize race. “During a demonstration against police violence.” Chris Kenning is making a normative statement, but trying to make it look like a factual one. The five white cops were slaughtered during a #BlackLivesMatter demonstration. BLM is a movement that supports murdering policemen. It opposes policemen enforcing the law against blacks. The phrase “police violence” is a code for supporting black cut-throats, including black cop-killers. Thus, Chris Kenning supports racist black thugs, and black cop-killers, in particular.]

The Dallas County District Attorney’s office said on Wednesday that investigators presented their findings to a grand jury as it does with all officer-involved shootings. The grand jury found the shooting was justified in the circumstances and declined to bring charges, a spokeswoman said.

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families of those who lost their lives that night, the officers who were injured, and all of the men and women who courageously put themselves into harm’s way, all in an effort to protect our community,” Prosecutor Faith Johnson said in a statement.

The bomb killed attacker Micah Xavier Johnson, an African-American Army reservist who served in Afghanistan and who investigators said sought to "kill white people" in retribution for police killings of black people.

The assault, the deadliest for law enforcement in the United States since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, took place during a protest over fatal police shootings of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota. Those deaths fanned public outrage over excessive use of force by police, especially against black men.

[No, they didn’t. Operatives like Chris Kenning fanned “public outrage.” “Excessive use of force by police, especially against black men,” is editorializing on Kenning’s part.

A real reporter would have said something like, “The media, the Democratic Party, and black activists, sought to fan public outrage against policemen.”]

Former Dallas Police Chief David Brown, who has since retired, said in 2016 that police had tried unsuccessfully to negotiate an end to an hours-long standoff before sending in a bomb-carrying robot that killed Johnson.
Mike Mata, president of the Dallas Police Association, said more than a dozen officers were involved in the grand jury review because they either fired at the assailant or were involved with the robot.

[Terrible grammar, on Chris Kenning and Susan Thomas’ part. “Former Dallas Police Chief David Brown, who has since retired…” is a double-qualifier. They should have written something like, “Then-Dallas Police Chief David Brown said in 2016 that…”

“Obviously we’re very happy that the officers were not indicted,” he told Reuters in an interview. “We’re glad this is over and officers can move on their careers.”

The New Orleans Pelicans reached an agreement to acquire Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic, league sources told ESPN.

The Pelicans were able to complete the deal once they decided to guarantee the $12.5 million team option on Mirotic's contract next season, which allowed the Bulls to complete the trade without Mirotic's permission, league sources said.

The Pelicans are sending a 2018 protected first-round pick, center Omer Asik and guards Tony Allen and Jameer Nelson to the Bulls, league sources said.
GRA:Is it better for a whitey to go to New Orleans?Probably not.

That such a grand jury hearing would have to be even held in the first place is just amazing. The bad guy wounded a dozen officers besides the five murdered.

I forgot to post this, but this is what I wrote to A Texas Reader, when he sent me this story:

Why did this even go before a grand jury? I know, it's routine. But it shouldn't be.

When Texas' demographics change a wee bit, instead of cops (and civilians) who killed black and Hispanic perps in perfectly righteous shootings routinely being cleared, they are going to routinely be indicted.

After the five Dallas policemen were murdered, it was believed (at least by Nicholas and undoubtedly by others) that the BLM crowd has sinister motives for staging this particular demonstration: it was a set-up. These aren't Nicholas' exact words at the time, but I join him in believing that the demonstration was staged to expose the protecting police officers to Johnson's sniper fire.

Every time I see some idiotic sign supporting BLM in this city (and there are thankfully very few, even for shitty ol' liberal Austin, Texas), I remember the murdered Dallas policemen along with the hypocrisy and evil of BLM. And I shake my head at the delusion of any neighbor, especially a white one, who would publicly voice support for BLM.
