One of the Dallas shooters was identified this morning as Micah Xavier Johnson from Mesquite, Texas. Before his Facebook page was taken down, photos were captured revealing Johnson’s black activist mentality:
The narrative pushed by the Black Lives Matter and Black Power/Panther movement needs to end! They’re demonizing the police who go out and protect the people every day! We still don’t have details on the two shooting in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis but these hate groups decided to make up a narrative that worked for them. We need to get all the facts before condemning anyone. Yes, the police officers aren’t perfect but they’re human and deal with horrible violence and threats EVERY DAY!
CBS DFW reported:
However, Dallas Police Chief David Brown confirmed the death of one gunman, later identified by CBS News as of 25-year old Micah Xavier Johnson of Mesquite, the suspect that police cornered in a parking garage at El Centro College in the downtown area immediately following the shooting.
According to Brown, police cornered Micah Johnson and negotiated with him for several hours. When talks broke down – they exchanged gunfire with the man. At that point, police sent in a remote vehicle and detonated a bomb – ultimately killing him.
“We saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device on its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was. Other options would have exposed our officers to great danger” said Brown.
“He seemed lucid during negotiations.” said Chief Brown “He expressed anger for Black Lives Matter.”
Sources told the Los Angeles Times that Johnson has no ties to terror groups and no known criminal history. He has lived in the Dallas area and has family members living in Mesquite, Texas, east of Dallas, the newspaper reports, citing federal law enforcement sources.
A black SUV was found at the scene registered to Delphene Johnson, who is Micah Johnson’s mother according to Facebook posts and public records, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reports. Live helicopter video from the news station showed police at her home in Mesquite.
