Dallas Ambush: Snipers Shoot 12 Police Officers & 2 Civilians, 5 Officers Dead … 3 Suspects in Custody, One Suspect Dead
THEY DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE … SAY A PRAYER FOR THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES OF THOSE LOST AND INJURED AND FOR DALLAS.
Sadly, the death toll has climbed to 5 overnight from the ambush style sniper massacre of police officers in Dallas, Texas during a “Black Lives Matters” protest. In total, 12 police officers were shot and 5 have passed away from the deadly, murderous attack. It is the greatest loss of police lives in a single tragic event since the terror attacks of 9-11. According to reports, 43 year old officer Brent Thompson was identified as one of the victims fatally shot. Thompson joined the DART Police Department in 2009.
One of the suspects had engaged in a standoff for several hours with police, but a Dallas city official announced around 3:30 a.m. that it was over. That suspect is now dead, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said.
“Our explosives took him down,” he told “Good Morning America” today.
A peaceful protest against nationwide officer-involved shootings took a sinister turn at about 9 p.m. Thursday night after snipers shot 12 police officers, killing five, according to Dallas Police Chief Brown.
Two civilians were also wounded in the attack.
“Some officers were shot in the back,” said Brown, who added during a press conference that they were attacked “ambush-style.”
One suspect died of a self-inflicted gun shot wound at about 2:50am after an hours-long stand-off with police.
22 Year Old Former ‘Voice’ Singer Christina Grimmie Dead, Shot to Death Following Orlando Concert (Update: Gunman Kills Himself)
22 year old Christina Grimmie has been shot dead following her concert in Orlando, Florida. The former NBC “The Voice” singer was shot to death while she signed autographs for fans following her concert. Grimmie was performing with the band Before You Exit at The Plaza Live on Bumby Avenue. The gunman, who was described as a 21-year-old white man, walked toward Grimmie with two guns and shot her. The unidentified gunman shot himself in a scuffle following the shooting. Sadly, Grimmie has taken to a local area hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Hours before what would be her last concert, singer Christina Grimmie jovially invited fans to see her show in central Florida in a video that she posted on social media on Friday afternoon.
Not long after, the former star of NBC’s “The Voice” would be dead — shot by a man who walked up to her after the performance in Orlando, police said.
The man who shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie in Orlando on Friday night was not from that central Florida city, and “traveled to Orlando apparently to commit this crime,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters Saturday.
The gunman — who authorities say fatally shot himself after shooting Grimmie — was a 21-year-old white man, and had two handguns, two additional loaded magazines and a large hunting knife, Mina said.
REST IN PEACE
At some point during the interaction with fans, the gunman, who was described as a 21-year-old white man, walked toward Grimmie with two guns and shot her.
At a news conference Saturday, police said the gunman was not from the area. They said he was carrying two extra magazines of ammunition and a hunting knife.
Police said Grimmie’s brother immediately tackled the assailant, and during the subsequent struggle, he shot himself.
The 27-year-old man, whose name police did not release, travelled to The Plaza Live theater with two small-caliber handguns Friday night. He walked up to Grimmie, who was signing autographs after the show, and shot her at about 10:30 p.m., Police Chief John Mina said. Her brother immediately tackled the suspect and the man shot himself at the scene.
The man came to Orlando from another city in Florida with the intention of killing Grimmie, Mina said. He declined to say which city.
Mina said no car was found at the venue and police believe the man arranged transportation to and from the venue. No detail was given about how he originally arrived in Orlando.

“Both teachers ended up shot. The second one, the one whose life was saved, even though she was shot in the leg she had the presence of mind to pull the fire alarm to help save other lives,” he said.
Carol Bowne Stabbed to Death by Ex-Boyfriend Michael Eitel in New Jersey While Waiting for Gun Permit (VIDEO)
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOVERNMENTS RESTRICT THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS … NEW JERSEY WOMAN STABBED TO DEATH BY EX WHILE WAITING FOR GUN PERMIT.
39 year old Carol Bowne, a New Jersey hairdresser, feared for her life and the threat of domestic violence from her ex-boyfriend, 45 year old Michael Eitel. Carol Bowne sought to protect herself by getting a restraining order, installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the long process of obtaining a handgun. Carol Brown was stabbed multiple times by Eitel in the driveway of her home Wednesday night in the 100 block of Patton Avenue in Berlin Township. Bowne was transported to Virtua Hospital in Berlin where she was pronounced dead a short time later. Michael Eitel was charged with her murder. Eitel, a convicted felon, is a fugitive and being sought by a U.S. Marshals Service.
This didn’t have to happen. Thanks to New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws, Carol Browne is dead. As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, Unlike most states, New Jersey’s restrictive gun laws require a permit to purchase a handgun of which the permit process can take several months to complete. Carol Browne could not simply buy a gun for her protection, the very equalizer of a petite female hairdresser against a crazed ex-boyfriend, convicted felon. Obviously, a retraining order means nothing, security cameras and an alarm system did nothing to protect Brown and the police cannot be everywhere at all times to protect people. Do ypu know what would have given Carol Brown a fighting chance … A Sig Sauer P238 ESP, a Rugar SR22, or a Rugar SR40.

Co-Pilot Andreas Lubitzn in Germanwings Crash Hid Medical Condition From Employer … Authorities Find Torn Up Doctors’ Notes Stating He Was Too Ill to Work, Including Day of the Plane Crash
Search of Andreas Lubitzn’s home finds doctor’s notes that he was too ill to work …
The NY Times is reporting that Andreas Lubitzn, the co-pilot who deliberately crashed Germanwings flight 9525 into the French Alps on Tuesday killing all aboard, had been given a mental health diagnosis but kept the condition hidden from his employer. Prosecutors said on Friday that among the items found at Mr. Lubitz’s home were several doctors’ notes stating that he was too ill to work, including on the day of the crash; one of the notes had been torn up.
Isn’t this special. We have an individual who received a doctor’s note that says he is too ill to work; however, the employer does not get the same.
Investigators probe Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz’s background
Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who flew a Germanwings jetliner into the French Alps on Tuesday, had been given a mental health diagnosis but kept the condition hidden from his employer, the authorities said Friday.
A psychiatric diagnosis might explain why Mr. Lubitz, a 27-year-old German, did not disclose his full medical record to Germanwings and its parent company, Lufthansa. Certain diagnoses are grounds for a pilot’s license to be revoked.
Prosecutors said on Friday that among the items found at Mr. Lubitz’s home were several doctors’ notes stating that he was too ill to work, including on the day of the crash; one of the notes had been torn up. These documents “support the preliminary assessment that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and colleagues,” the prosecutors said in a statement.
