Texas Lieutenant Governor Calls Protesters ‘Hypocrites’ - One gunman

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick of Texas on Friday called the protesters assembled in Dallas the night before “hypocrites” for expecting police protection from the sniper fire while they were protesting police violence.

“All those protesters last night, they ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to turn around and protect them,” Mr. Patrick told Fox News. “What hypocrites!”

Mr. Patrick also blamed protesters for creating volatile situations like the one in Dallas the night before, which ended with five law enforcement officers dead and seven officers and two civilians wounded.

NOT helpful Patrick.


It appears that the dead sniper, identified as Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, was the sole gunman, a senior law enforcement official said. Officials at first said that at least two snipers had carried out a coordinated ambush, firing rifles from triangulated positions, including from one or more elevated posts in downtown buildings.

3. So, he's saying public officials shouldn't be expected to do their jobs?

And the protestors didn't create any volatile situation.
