Suspect in Dallas Shootings "Wanted to Kill White Officers"

By now, you all know that a sniper in Dallas shot and killed 5 officers and wounded 7 more.  The officers were all in one area of Dallas as they policed a peaceful protest happening because of two black men killed by police in St Paul and Louisiana.

A suspect in the ambush of 12 Dallas police officers "wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," and was upset about recent police shootings, the city police chief said Friday.

Authorities killed the man after a standoff in a garage at El Centro Community College in the early hours of Friday morning, after several hours of negotiations. After exchanging gunfire with him, they "saw no other option" but to kill him by detonating a bomb, Brown said.

"Other options would have exposed our officers to grave danger," he said.

Authorities did not identify the suspect. A senior law enforcement official told NBC News he is believed to be Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, from the Dallas area.

The sniper attack on the officers — which started Thursday night just before 9 p.m. local time following a peaceful protest over back-to-back police shootings of black men elsewhere in the country this week — killed five officers and injured seven.

"The suspect said other things that are part of this investigation so that we can make sure that everyone associated with this tragic event is brought to justice," he added, but didn't go into further detail.

Before he was killed, the suspect told a hostage negotiator that he "was upset about Black Lives Matter." The movement was again in the spotlight this week after two police shootings of black men: Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was killed Tuesday, and Philando Castile was killed Wednesday in Falcon Heights, Minnesota — prompting demonstrations across the nation, including Thursday's in Dallas.

The suspect told the hostage negotiator he was upset about the shootings.

"The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," Brown said.


Obama is already using the shooting to blame high powered guns.

For Bible readers we already know this type of violence and hatred is going to continue.  We also know that racial discord is going to get worse.

Matthew 24
6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, (race will rise against other race) and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

When Jesus says these are the BEGINNING of birth pains...we all know that birth pains get worse and worse as the birth of the baby nears.

The Day of the Lord is the "baby" that is coming.  Jesus says that this "day" that is coming will be so bad for the inhabitants left behind (not included in the rapture) that unless he returned to earth to shorten those days, NO FLESH on earth would survive.

The Day of the Lord will end with the physical return of Christ to earth...and everyone will see it and know it.

Luke 17:24
For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.
