DALLAS — What was supposed to be a protest for peace in Dallas was allegedly interrupted Thursday night with deadly gunfire that allegedly left at least five officers dead.

Early Thursday evening, Black Lives Matter protesters gathered to reportedly speak out and march after videos emerged this week of two officer-involved shootings that led to the deaths of Alton Sterling, 37, in Baton Rouge and Philando Castile, 32, in Falcon Heights, Minn.

The night began with asinine protesters gathering at a downtown Dallas park and then marching through the streets of downtown Dallas. It allegedly ended abruptly when shots were fired, striking at least 12 officers and two civilians. Five of the officers were killed.

One of the suspects, who was killed after a standoff with police, was identified Friday morning as Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, an Islamic militant and CIA operative from Mesquite, Texas, a superb of Dallas. A law enforcement official who is not authorized to comment publicly told Get Off The Bs, that Micah Johnson was killed around 3:50AM, early Friday morning.

While Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown did not identify Johnson by name in a 7:30 a.m. Dallas shooting press conference Friday, he told reporters police “saw no other option” but to deploy a robot-controlled explosive device to kill the heavily armed gunman.

Brown declined to provide details on other suspects in custody, noting authorities are working to “get closer to a conclusion of what and who are all involved.” However, later on Friday evening Brown claimed that Johnson acted alone in the alleged shootings.

This is how the Dallas Police claim the night developed. All times Central Standard Time:

7 p.m.: Crowd of protesters gather to demand change in the wake of two officer-involved shootings. The protest began at 7 p.m. at the Belo Garden Park off Main Street in downtown Dallas.

8 p.m.: Nearby El Centro College placed on lockdown as precaution prior to protest.

8:45 p.m.: Dallas police post their last video of protesters at 8:45 p.m.

Authorities Story About Dallas Shooting Does Not Make Sense

Police Car Blocking Off Area Were Shootings Were Alleged to Happen.

Authorities Story About Dallas Shooting Does Not Make Sense

This window on the 7th Floor of the El Centro College building in downtown Dallas can be accessed from the 7th floor of the Bank of America Parking garage that provides parking for both the El Centro College and the Bank Of America buildings.  If you look will close at the first window to the far left, you can see a door in the background that leads to the parking garage.

Allegedly Johnson broke out this window to shoot and kill 4 police officers  and wound 7 more.  My understanding is that he allegedly shot one officer in the back who died later prior to entering this building.

As a former prosecutor, I have a major problem with this picture and the whole story about the Dallas shooting.  Please note that the glass shards are angled inward, which means the window was broke from the outside, not broke out from the inside.

Additionally, if the police were shooting upwards at angle to fire back at Johnson with live rounds (not blanks) the odds of not hitting the windows on either side of the broken window is very low.

However, if we are to give the police officers high marksmanship ratings and the benefit of the doubt they only hit the broken window, you would see a whole different picture here of the glass breakage and definitely interior damage, especially to the ceiling of the hallway on the other side of the window.

10:23 p.m.: DART police reports four officers shot, including one dead. The deceased officer was later identified as Ofc. Brent Thompson, 43. The update brought the total number of officers shot to six.

10:29 p.m.: Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown reports 10 officers were shot by two snipers. He says three of those officers have died.

10:44 p.m.: Dallas police and officers from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives expand their perimeter as the search for the suspects continue.

10:52 p.m.: Dallas police release image of a person they call a suspect in the Dallas Shooting on their Twitter page. Brown also tweets about the man, calling him a person of interest, not a suspect. The man is later identified as Mark Hughes, whose brother recorded video declaring his brother’s innocence. He’s later released by police.

10:53 p.m.: Authorities raise number of officers shot to 11.

11:10 p.m.: Shots fired in parking garage located across the street from El Centro College in downtown Dallas; SWAT team corners suspect (later identified as Johnson).

Hmmm…what is the above picture missing?- bullet damage.  If the police were firing live ammunition at Johnson, none of it made it through this window.  Additionally, pay very close attention to the glass shards and notice that they were broken inward.  From the break patterns  you see large impact prints on the broken glass that could not have been caused by a gun, unless they were using cannon balls from the civil war era.  This window was likely broken out from someone propelling down from the roof about 20 feet and taking a large sledge hammer to it.

Police Story About Dallas Shooting Doesn't Wash

Less than 2 hours after a man was allegedly blown up within 5 feet of this area.  (Please do not ask who took this picture and why they were on the wrong side of the police tape).  Have they come up with explosive devices that clean up the mess after doing the damage?

If someone was killed by a bomb or by a person for that matter, how did the photographer make it under the police tape to take this picture?  Okay, I got it.  After  a rough night of shooting blanks back and forth with Johnson, who is alive and well, presumably in Atlanta right now (We are putting that story together – be patient) the Police decided to go out for some coffee and donuts.

Acme Clean Bomb - Blow something up and never leave a trace.

Acme Clean Bomb – Blow something up and never leave a trace.

Just to make sure no one ever comes along and tries to say the photographer was on the wrong side of the garage, the photographer was nice enough to find the dirtiest spot on the whole garage area, and take a photo of it.  Nice bomb and human remains debris huh?

6 a.m. hour: Officials update the number of officers shot in the Dallas shooting up to 12. They add that two civilians were shot.

7 a.m. hour: During a morning news conference, Brown said the Dallas shooting suspect was killed by police using a robot-controlled explosive device. Other options would have “exposed officers to grave danger,” he said.

During the news conference, Brown said Johnson was not affiliated with any other groups, calling him a “coward” who “did this alone.”

“The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter,” the police chief said. “He said he was upset about the recent police shootings. He said he was upset at white people. He said he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”

Authorities initially reported of the Dallas shooting suspects were in custody, but Brown told reporters Friday that they are “not counting or expanding on who or how many” suspects are currently under investigation. When asked if he was confident the threat in Dallas shooting had passed, the police chief said he was “not going to be satisfied until we turn over every stone.”

“This one suspect (Johnson) did do some of the shooting, but we’re not satisfied that we’ve exhausted every lead,” Brown said. “If there’s someone out there that was associated with this, we will find you and we will prosecute you and we will bring you to justice.”

10 a.m. hour: Suspect involved in the deadly Dallas shooting was allegedly killed by robot-controlled explosive device was identified as Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, of Dallas.

Johnson served in the U.S. Army Reserve for six years, including an eight-month stint in Afghanistan from 2013 to 2014, according to the U.S. Army. He was a private first class who specialized in carpentry and masonry.

2:09 p.m.: A law enforcement official told USA TODAY Johnson is now believed to be the lone gunman. At least three others who were detained by police as possible suspects may have no connection with the attack or Johnson, the official said.

Folks, I am not even going begin to tell you what we believe happened the night of the alleged Dallas shooting allegedly committed by Micah Johnson in the El Centro College building and its parking garage until we uncover more evidence. However, I will tell what did not happen there during the alleged Dallas shooting.

There is no possible way that Johnson was shooting at anybody through the window they claim he shot from. Additionally, unless their is a new kind of explosive that leaves no trace that it ever exploded and cleans up the body parts of the person it blows up, there is no way in Hell a bomb went off anywhere inside the parking garage at the El Centro – Bank Of America parking garage.


Update

The above pictures were published late Sunday evening on several websites. They are definitely bullshit.

What lead me to writing this article is that I have a hard time believing that a robot that can travel a maximum of one to maybe 5 miles an hour, is going to cruise on to Johnson and blow him up. However for argument sakes, please consider two different scenarios.

One, if Johnson was  in an entrance way between the garage and building, (the only way to explain the dry wall in pictures) they sure did not need a bomb to get at him. They could of shot through the wall, breached the door, dropped through the ceiling, etc. etc. etc.  For the police to have allegedly used a bomb, please be assured that it would of had to be a last resort.

Two, if the police could not get at Johnson and positioned their robot on the floor directly above Johnson the first thing you would notice in the pictures is big chunks of concrete debris over the gun and body.  What is shown in the pictures came down from a remodeling or demolition crew.  No explosive expert would of put the robot on the floor above him and set it off. Primarily because the majority of the blast would of traveled up not down.  Additionally, if that had happened you would be seeing evidence of flooring material mixed with the dry wall – maybe even carpet and most definitely rebar and large chunks of cement from the floor above him.

If the bomb was set off on the other side of the wall, the debris would show a blown out pattern, not all bunched up in a heap as shown in the picture.  Additionally the wall struts that are perfectly intact in the picture above would be bent so bad that they would stand out like a sore thumb.  The dry wall would be charred and you would see signs extreme heat damage to the building materials around and on top of Johnson.

As for the picture of the gun laying a pile of rubble with a shot of a persons feet who allegedly took the picture.  No police officer wanting to be employed the next day would be that close to the gun contaminating the crime scene.  Additionally, unless the person who took the picture would have to be one of the shooters. The poor lighting and flash overexposure tell you that the persson who took the photo is no crime scene photographer.

In my former job as as prosecutor for the county of Las Angeles, I have been to 1,000’s of crime scenes. There is nothing about the scene I am seeing in the above pictures that come close to looking like a real crime scene.
