It did not take long for President Obama to use the tragic police ambush in Dallas, TX to push his gun control agenda. In fact, in his first statement on the shocking murder of 5 police officers, Obama introduced the issue. After condemning the “senseless murders” of the police officers, the President said, “We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons; unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic. And in the days ahead we’re going to have to consider those realities as well.”

One reality the President should consider is that his words matter. Earlier in the week, the President condemned the controversial police shootings of black men in Baton Rouge, LA and Falcon Heights, MN. On his Facebook page, Obama said, “a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement." He also noted that all Americans should "recognize the anger, frustration and grief that so many Americans are feeling" over the incidents and added that "Michelle and I share those feelings."

These observations, according to Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, only exacerbated the already tense relations between the African American community and police officers. In fact, Clarke believes that Obama created more of a problem by pouring “gas on the situation with his dog whistle message” about the incidents.

This is a typical response from President Obama as he has been condemning the police ever since he took office. Back in 2009, he lashed out at Cambridge, MA police for acting “stupidly” in an incident involving Harvard Professor Louis Gates. After more information was divulged, the President had to backtrack and famously held a “beer summit” with the police officer and the professor to resolve the issue.

More Cop-Targeted Shootings Reported In Georgia, Missouri, Texas, And Tennessee

More Cop-Targeted Shootings Reported In Georgia, Missouri, Texas, And Tennessee
UPDATE: Caleb Howe at RedState noted another shooting against a police officer that occurred in Georgia today:
Also in Georgia, also this morning, a police officer in Roswell was shot while on patrol. A man fired at the officer from his car. The officer pursued, the suspect crashed his vehicle, and he is now under arrest. He was in possession of methamphetamine and is charged with, among other things, driving a stolen vehicle.
However, the officer on patrol did not know any of that and was not pursuing him. The officer was unhurt.
We all know about the horrific shooting in Dallas, Texas that left five officers dead, the worst attack on law enforcement since 9/11 and one of the deadliest assaults against cops in the past 100 years. In Tennessee, a man opened fire on police and innocent bystanders on a highway, killing one person while injuring three, including a police officer. The perpetrator, Lakeem Keon Scott, committed this crime over his frustration over police-related shootings.

In Georgia, this incident involving shots being fired against police seems to not be related to the Dallas attack, but it's still an instance where a cop was targeted. A man called 911 to report a car break-in and then ambushed the responding officer when he arrived at the residence. The officer was hit three times; two bullets hit his bulletproof vest, while the third round entered his abdomen (via Associated Press):

Muslim targeted Pamela Geller for jihad murder, FBI didn’t bother to tell herIf an Islamic jihadi had targeted a member of, say, Black Lives Matter (yes, I know that would never happen, but just for the sake of argument) for jihad murder, do you think the FBI would have been this cavalier? Neither do I. “FBI suggests terror suspect targeted Pamela Geller,” WND, July 7, 2016: New […]

Micah Johnson was a Facebook member of The Nation of Islam and Black Liberation Party, Obama’s old stomping grounds. Obama’s spiritual guru, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, is a fiery hate pastor in a Black Liberation church.
