  • Dallas Police HQ Attacked

    Fortunately no reports of casualties so far, even though automatic weapons and explosives were involved.

    No news on the attackers. Radical Islam, or some other group with a grudge? We shall see.

    Several nearby residents shot video... surreal is the best way to describe it.

    The van rammed a squad car outside of DPD and then opened fire. The van is currently disabled in a Jack in the Box parking lot in Wilmer-Hutchins. Police are attempting to negotiate with 5he shooter(s). No injuries reported so far, apart from a DPD EODbot.

    The van was described as armored with gunports.

    Right now, it appears to be a run of the mill psychopath.

      That's what confusing to me, apparently there are confirmed reports of multiple gunmen but some reports are saying it's just some crazy guy angry about being arrested for domestic violence.

        Negotiations are still going on right now, from what I can tell it has nothing to do with radical islam.

                Vice News reported that the van was a "Zombie Apocalypse" model, armored with gunports and bulletproof windows. They say he got it for $8,250.

                  Evidently they weren't bullet proof enough for a .50 Cal sniper round.

                      Not many things are...

                      Don't most police snipers use something a bit smaller? 7.62x51mm? .308?

                        Yes they do, but in this case a .50 Cal was used to disable the engine and penetrate the windshield according to the Dallas Police Chief in his briefing for the media.

                          The man police say is a suspect in the attack on their headquarters had a troubled family history that included a custody battle with his own mother and one report of family violence.

                          A 2013 arrest warrant affidavit for James Boulware out of Dallas County detailed the family violence incident between Boulware and his mother, and included allegations that he appeared “delusional.”

                          Reached in Carrollton, the suspect’s father Jim Boulware, of Carrollton, said his son has blamed police for losing custody of his own child, who is now in middle school. But he never expected anything like today’s events.

                          “He blames the police for taking his son away from him,” Jim Boulware said. “I tried to tell him that the police are just doing their job.”
                          This part sounds like he might be a member of ACG. Anybody missing?

                          He was making comments about North and South Korea and was talking “rudely” about religion, Jews and Christians to his mother, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

                          When she told him he was “going to hell,” he grabbed her throat with both hands and began squeezing her neck, police documents state.

                              I notice that the first thing many of the stories I've seen about this mention the shooter was a disgruntled White guy...
