THE CLASH - AMSTERDAM 1981

January 6, 2014 – 5:27 am

‘I FOUGHT THE LAW AND THE LAW WON’

DALLAS, JULY 8, 2016 (AP) - Gunmen shot and killed five police officers and wounded seven others during a protest over fatal police shootings of black men in other states, authorities said. It appeared to be the deadliest day for US. law enforcement since the 2001 terrorist attacks. Thursday’s bloodshed (July 7), which unfolded just a few blocks from where President John F. Kennedy was slain in 1963, also evoked the trauma of the nation’s tumultuous civil rights era.

Police Chief David Brown blamed “snipers” and said three suspects were in custody. Mayor Mike Rawlings said a fourth was slain by police in a downtown parking garage where he had exchanged gunfire with authorities.
