    Here he is giving testimony:



    Look, I'm not going to call this a police conspiracy, but I'm not ruling it out either. This is really strange, no? I'd put my money on some kind of lone wolf white nationalist.

    I agree, it was probably an employee of the Dallas Police Department.

    Worry not, the Dallas Police Department is on the case!

    Most people of your... political persuasion would insist on it.

    We had a lone wolf shooter here in Canada a number of years ago who was a Moslem. He was immediately labeled a "terrorist," and NOT a "lone wolf shooter," before his motivation and acquaintances were even known. And going a bit further back, we must remember that the Virginia sniper of infamy was also Moslem, and not tied by affiliation or motive to any "terrorist" group of "Islamist" persuasion. But, law enforcement tends to automatically and pre-emptively slap the "terrorist" label, as opposed to the "lone wolf" label before anything other than race and obvious religion are at all known. Funny that.

    I saw this story yesterday and said to myself his killer will never be found by the Dallas PD. Its probably already sitting in a cold case drawer.

    Lol, yep, I was trying to say that without actually saying it.

    Funny, I used to hear that RAtM wasn't all that political for a political band. I think their message was just suppressed or ignored.

    Honestly, it appears to be a robbery and there is so far no evidence otherwise. Not that little things like evidence are stopping the conspiracy theory loons.

    A robbery in which nothing was stolen and police have no suspects or motive.

    And drive away in this case.
    So basically we've gone from it appears to be a robbery to maybe it was a robbery.
    Your theory is nothing more than that atm.

    I strongly suspect the thought process here goes something like "black victim...probably a robbery, I know they do that a lot"

    Lone wolf killers want attention, don’t they? And to make a statement. This doesn’t do that.

    I doubt it. He was targeted in a shooting outside a strip club a year earlier and there’s also been suspects arrested over this one.
