It's only a matter of time now, until things blow. The pro-black media will cover up the truth, as will a police department under investigation by Obama's anti-white Department of Justice. [Amid nation's police-community tensions, Baltimore officers kill man in exchange of gunfire, Baltimore Sun, July 15, 2015]:
A week after five police officers were fatally shot in Dallas by a sniper during a protest against police shootings, Baltimore police say four officers came under fire from a 33-year-old man with a self-assembled, high-powered long gun.
Two of the officers returned fire, fatally wounding the man and spurring a massive police response outside a West Baltimore apartment complex Thursday night.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said Friday that the two officers who fired their weapons amid the "chaotic scene" have been placed on routine administrative duties pending an investigation into the incident.
He said a preliminary investigation suggested the two officers — one a 16-year veteran, and the other on the force for six years, neither of whom has been identified — acted appropriately and bravely in confronting the gunman, identified as Dayten Ernest Harper.
We're lucky we don't have four dead cops today," Davis said, before repeating the number to let it sink in.
A person reached at a number listed for Harper declined to comment Friday evening.
The exchange of gunfire occurred about 9:30 p.m. Thursday, shortly after President Barack Obama concluded a televised town hall to address the Dallas attacks and the growing national debate over fatal police shootings of black men, including Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minn.
It also happened the same day that the Baltimore Police Department received a memo from the Baltimore field office of the FBI, warning that members of the city's Black Guerrilla Family gang had discussed the possibility of ambushing officers in the wake of the Dallas attack.
The memo, obtained by The Baltimore Sun, said the FBI had received "highly credible information" that the BGF had discussed how the gang could ambush law enforcement officers parked in side streets or alleys, and instructed its members to look for opportunities to shoot white police officers.
Davis said police do not believe the incident Thursday had anything to do with the threat and "don't believe it was an ambush." He said four plainclothes officers happened to hear gunfire off Winchester Street and responded.
"They were fired upon by a bad guy," he said. "That's not the first time that's happened in Baltimore."
Still, given the intensity of the incident and the existence of the FBI memo, and with the national debate over police-community tensions as a backdrop, Davis said he decided to write a letter to all members of his force to reassure them that they have support.There is no more "steam control."
