Nah Dallas/Fort Worth is huge, I live right in the middle of the two but still about an hour away from the shooting. All was quiet in my little white bred suburb.

Tranquilizer darts sound cool on paper, but the reality is that if you're old, obese, pregnant, or on drugs, they will kill you. The dosage also has to change based on the weight of the target. That's why they only get used on animals. A taser on a drone would be cool, if it didn't fry the electronics on the drone when it fired. "Get off my lawn!!" ZZZZZAAAAPPPP

In the frenzy it was hard to tell really what was going on. They haven't released a ton of information yet, but they arrested 3 people and blew one up. The one they blew up was writing messages all over the place in his own blood but they haven't said anything about that yet. They are pretty sure the others arrested where involved but didn't actually shoot. You have to remember there where thousands of people downtown and when the shooting started everyone ran. They assumed there had to be more shooters involved because of how few civilians where hit, when in all actuality the shooter just cowardly took shots at cops from behind and from close range. There is a cell of people out there who think that the shooting was perpetrated by the police in order to make the BLM movement look violent. Which is completely absurd.

Quick reactions can be inaccurate. Especially from people not used to the sound of gunfire. All kinds of theories immediately came out. Some were saying it was a military trained white guy from the one video where the guy is shooting behind the columns. Attempting to setup the black lives matter group. Turns out it was a military trained black guy. Same with the other recent shooting in Louisiana.

I found an interview from a while ago with a cop that worked in I think Maryland. Where the one guy died in police custody with a broken back or something crazy. It's long but people should watch it. The cop is being interviewed by the guy that used to host that Fear Factor show where people ate bugs and other garbage. Or people could watch Strange Days as I'm surprised we are still dealing with stuff like this.

But many times if something doesn't directly impact someone, most simply don't care. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
