As we reported earlier, five officers — four police officers and one transit officer — were reported killed by sniper fire in what is being seen as a planned attack. Unfortunately, supporters of Black Lives Matter took to Twitter to celebrate the murders, IOTWReport said.
Here’s just a few of the tweets posted by the site:

Police regularly kill unarmed black men; tonight snipers took down Dallas cops. Gov'ts better start showing that #BlackLivesMatter, or else.

There’s more — a lot more.
Here’s video of what looks like Black Lives Matter supporters celebrating in front of Dallas police officers:
A post at the International Business Times said: “The shootings unfolded after President Barack Obama said he was troubled by law enforcement officers who target blacks and Latinos.”
“They’re symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system. And I just want to give people a few statistics to try to put in context why emotions are so raw around these issues,” Obama said. “According to various studies — not just one, but a wide range of studies that have been carried out over a number of years — African Americans are 30 percent more likely than whites to be pulled over. After being pulled over, African Americans and Hispanics are three times more likely to be searched.”
“There is no contradiction between us supporting law enforcement — making sure they’ve got the equipment they need, making sure that their collective bargaining rights are recognized, making sure that they’re adequately staffed, making sure that they are respected, making sure their families are supported — and also saying that there are problems across our criminal justice system, there are biases — some conscious and unconscious — that have to be rooted out,” he added.
