As if the Police Department of Dallas has not had enough bad news, now it was just hit with another bombshell.
Only moments after five of his brothers were gunned down in the streets of Dallas, Chief Brown said he received death threats against his family, according to TP.
When talking to reporters about the threats, he stated, “We’re taking them all as credible, whether they can be confirmed or not.”
These threats were not the only violence post-ambush throughout the country.
In several cities, Black Lives Matter groups got together blocking streets and attacking innocent citizens.
There was also another ambush of a police officer as a man lured him by speeding and then walked up behind the officer and shot him in the back and neck.
All of a sudden, in this country it is okay to kill police officers.
Today, our police are asked to do far more than the job has ever asked of them.
Chief Brown commented in this as well, stating, “We’re asking cops to do too much in this country. We are. We’re just asking us to do too much.”
He continued, “Every societal failure, we put it off on the cops to solve. Not enough mental health funding. Let the cop handle it. Not enough drug addiction funding. Let’s give it to the cops.”
You can see the frustration in his face and hear it in his voice.
Our officers are being asked for more and our government criticizes them every chance it gets.
That is just not how it is supposed to work in this country.
