Did Black Lives Matter Inspire Dallas Attack Suspect Micah Xavier Johnson? (VIDEO)

Actually, the suspect told the police, during standoff negotiations, that he wanted to kill white people, especially white cops. And the suspect was upset by the recent police killings of black men. He "expressed anger for Black Lives Matter," according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown.

Indeed, as I've noted, before I went out last night to the Dodger game, I predicted some kind of urban unrest coming out of Black Lives Matter and this week's events. It was worse than I expected, but today I'm confident that it's the tip of the iceberg.
