Are we at war?

Good Afternoon NMP followers! 

Today is a sad yet scary day for America. I say this because it feels as if we are on the brink of a race war. If you have not been keeping up with the national news lately, in Dallas Texas, more than one shooter (snipers) shot and killed 5 police officers, and wounded 5. One sniper that goes by the name Micah Johnson, was shot and killed by a police robot. Before Johnson was killed he told Dallas Police, "I want to kill cops, specifically white cops." The DPD has three other suspects in custody, but they all have refused to talk and are asking for council. This shooting comes a day after two different incidents have taken place. One, in Baton Rouge Louisiana, where Alton Sterling was shot 6 times close range by police officers in front of a corner store, the entire incident was caught on camera. The second incident happened the next day in Minnesota, where Philando Castile was shot in his car while his young daughter was in the backseat and his girlfriend on the passenger side. It has been reported that Castile has a license to carry a weapon and was reaching for his license when a Police Officer shot and killed him as well. Castile's girlfriend caught the entire incident on camera, and it has now made national news. To my NMP followers, what are your feelings in these recent events that have taken place? How do you feel about Black Lives Matter? Feel free to comment below!
