Thursday night saw the biggest loss of life for America's law enforcement since 9/11. Last night five police officers were killed, six officers were wounded and two civilians were shot according to the most recent reports.
The Black Power Political Organization has taken responsibility for the attack according screen shots of a Facebook post. The group's Facebook account has since been taken down.
What the post says:
"Sniper Assassins Take Down Five Police Officers! And More Will Be Assassinated In The Coming Days! Do You Like The Work Of Our Assassins? Get Your Own Sniper Rifle And Join Our Thousands Of Sniper Assassins Worldwide In The Fight Against Oppression!"
The movement claims responsibility for the sniper attacks we heard about last night. The call for more to join "our thousands of sniper assassins" is highly alarming. As the US and other developed nations slide further into anarchy, one may wonder how many more violent groups will form and mobilize following oppression from leaders.
