[ gunshot ] >> we got a guy with a long rifle. >> there's four cops down. >> there's no possible justification for these kinds of attacks. >> we're hurting. dallas officers are hurting. we are heartbroken. >> from day one he was a hero. >> let's come together as a country. >> black lives matter. >> oh, my god please don't tell
3:01 am
me he's dead. >> i want my justice. i want people to know who did this to us. >> i for one will not rest until the adequate punishment is served to all parties involved. it's been a head shaking, heartbreaking several days together here, hasn't it? we're so grateful for your company today. i'm christi paul, victor blackwell my partner there in dallas talking about what we know this morning. not just about what happened but also looking at a lot of the protests that happened overnight, right, victor? >> yes. we'll get to those protests in about 15 seconds. i want to start here by telling our viewers who are just joining us where we are. we're in front of the dallas police department headquarters. the tires, flowers, notes,
3:02 am
balloons and this is the front page. i want to hold it up here of the "dallas morning news," the pictures of those officers killed here on thursday night and the headline just two words summing up the pain here on the second morning after that attack, "we're hurting." we'll talk more about the hurting and the healing as we move through the day. the city of dallas reeling, this texas town epicenter of a tragedy, the heartbreak spread across nation. five officers murdered by a lone gunman, targeting white officers who was working a peaceful protest march. two black men killed in encounters with police in separate incidents. one in minnesota, one in louisiana. now overnight thousands across the country responded the way they knew how in numbers, marching to have their voices heard.
3:03 am
this is rochester, new york. 74 people here, though, arrested for disorderly conduct. hundreds protested police shooting there's. in san francisco, men and women there at city hall protesting what they call a racist police system. protesters flood new york's grand central station angered by police violence demanding justice there. tensions flared in baton rouge. this is where alton sterling was killed early this week. that protest ending just a few hours ago. the rally is there, clashed with police who were wearing riot gear a few placed under arrest.
3:04 am
in phoenix, police used pepper spray and shot bean bags pushing back protesters trying to protest and overrun a freeway. there were three people arrested there after rocks were thrown at police. the biggest protest, though, in atlanta. demonstrators just stopped traffic here. you see the standoff with police on a major road there, major highway. they overtook both lanes of traffic bringing rush hour to a standstill. now despite the incredible size of this gathering atlanta's mayor says fewer than ten were arrested. paul sandoval was there and he filed this report. >> reporter: peaceful yet tense is one way to describe what took place on the streets of atlanta friday evening. it started as a peaceful martin streets of downtown. authorities quickly sealed off the route that some of the
3:05 am
protesters, thousands were taking as soon as they headed towards the interconsistent. authorities creating a human chain, uniforms shoulder to shoulder here keeping some of these protesters from making their way out to the interconsistent as the mayor of atlanta said they don't want anybody to get hurt whether it's police officers, protesters, especially some people who are out for a drive. one of the reasons why things did escalate a bit during the early evening hours. that's when you had authorities, troopers, police officers facing off with some of these demonstrators as well. i'll have to say what's interesting there were actual conversations happening between law enforcement and some of these demonstrators as well at the head of the line. people were having conversations. in fact, some individuals would go up to these troopers, shake their hand and say thank you for their service. so it's interesting dynamic on the streets of atlanta. authorities will be on high alert throughout the weekend. they do say they will be taking a more tactical approach for
3:06 am
future demonstrations in light of what happened in dallas. back to you. >> our thanks for that report. authorities are trying to get inside the head of this gunman, the man behind the deadliest attack on law enforcement since 9/11. [ gunshot ] >> is that a cop dead? that's a cop down. dude, that's cop down. there's four cops down. >> four? >> 25-year-old micah xavier johnson had an arsenal of weapons when he unloaded into the crowd thursday night with a mission to kill white people, especially white police officers according to the chief of police here in dallas. investigators searched that army veteran's home finding bomb making materials, ballistic vest, rifles, ammunition and a personal journal of combat tactics. that journal could be really key to learning how he was able to pull off this attack.
3:07 am
president obama now cutting his trip short overseas in order to head to dallas early next week. we'll bring in sara in just a moment to talk about what we're learning about this shooter. sara if you could come on in and join us. there are questions about initially when this happened the connection to what was happening on that day. police have said there is no connection, he was very critical of black lives matter. what do we know about what seemed to be the length of time he planned this and this seemed to be planned before that protest. >> yeah. when the shooting happened they suddenly realized this was something that had to have been planned. now looking at the evidence they are pulling out of his home it appears that way. there's a journal about tactics. he was reading through these pamphlets that show,000 shoot and move. for a while there basically people thought and police thought there were two separate snipers shooting from a high vantage point literally picking
3:08 am
police officers off one by one by one, killing five people, injuring seven. but then they realize that this was just one man and started negotiate with him. they negotiated for hours according to the police chief. but that, obviously, did not work. but they started to take things out of the house after he was dead and realized that this was something he had certainly planned, this was something he had certainly taken the time to figure out how to do this daeed. people saw ammunition falling out of his pockets that's how much ammunition he had on him. they found a rifle, ballistic vests in his house. this person was clearly prepared to do the worst and utmost damage, not someone involved with the black lives matter movement, not involved as he said with any organization but clearly upset about what was happening and what is happening in this country between police and african-americans.
3:09 am
and so those things, obviously, played a role in his mind, but it was made very clear by police this had nothing to do with the protest. in fact, they said look during the protest we have pictures of police officers and protesters who are there protesting police brutality getting along fine. selfies. this department has worked for years to put itself in a good position with the community. it is community policing that's going on here and you saw that during those protests. and i think we have to be very clear these were two absolutely and completely separate incidents. the only link is that this person saw what was going on in america, it affected him. we don't know what was going on in his mind just yet but we're getting clearer picture he was angry. he targeted white people that's what he told police and targeted particularly white police officers. >> and took the opportunity to have, as you said did this deed
3:10 am
to conduct that because there were a large number of police officers there for that protest. we'll talk more about what happens next in the investigation in just a moment. thanks so much for being with us this morning. some of the words used to describe the officers killed here in dallas, because we're going to focus on them this morning. great, dedicated, wonderful dad. coming up how the community is rallying to show their support for those victims. plus over at baylor medical center other officers who survived the ambush, that's where they were treated. we're following that part of the story as well. >> reporter: victor it was controlled chaos, fear and then the realization that the very people who were being targeted here were police officers. i'm kyung lah outside of the baylor medical center. i'll bring you the stories of the er doctors who treated the very first victims.
3:11 am

3:14 am
[ coughs ] sorry, tickle in my throat! water would be nice, but that would go right through me. ghost problems. . i'm victor blackwell. back life now in front of the dallas police headquarters. we're learning more about the victims of the deadly ambush here on thursday night. 12 members of law enforcement here in dallas were shot during that peaceful protest. some members of the police department, others of the dallas area rapid transit. the protests, though, were in response to the deaths of two black men at the hands of police in minnesota and louisiana earlier in the week. five police officers did not make it. jean casarez that's their story. >> we are reminded by the power of faith and what happens when we call on a higher power. >> reporter: an emotional prayer

3:17 am
>> i love you. i'm glad you're here. >> reporter: jean casarez, cnn, new york. >> i want to share with you one of the quiet poignant moments that happened thursday night into friday morning. if you haven't seen it you should and if you have it doesn't thourt see it again. this happened just after the shooting. doctors and hospital staff, this was over at parkland memorial hospital. they linked arms around a krogr of uniformed officers to give them privacy to say good-bye to their fallen colleagues. this was a very important moment. happened early, early friday morning. kyung lah is live at baylor medical center where some of the victims of this shooting were taken. get us up to date, up to speed on those who survived the shooting and how they are doing. >> reporter: we don't have exact details on their status. the hospital says that they are trying to work with the dallas
3:18 am
police department to offer some privacy, some sort of peace for the families as these officers work through the trauma of their injuries. but from what we've heard from city, victor, what they are anticipating is that most of them have already been released or will soon be in the process being released. what we heard from in the overnight hours is we got to sit down with some of the very first responders, the people who were here at the er. they described what it was like the first call that was, that it was a shooting. they came here expecting the very first victims and then there was this realization that this wasn't just a shooting. the first victims arriving not by paramedics, they were arriving in their own bullet ridden squad cars. here's what temp r doctor told us. >> the police officers basically rode in their cars and got here
3:19 am
as fast as they good. came screeching around the corner. the squad cars themselves were shot up. some of their tires were blown out so they were coming on wheels. sparks flying. we had multiple patients suddenly we needed to take care of. the most critical we had the team up front take care of those patients as i then approached and as people then converged we realized okay we need to get this team on this patient, this team on this patient and make sure we had the right teams on the right patient. we needed to start thinking as we understood there's still an active shooter. >> reporter: at what point did it start to dawn on everybody what was happening inside the city? >> i think it was when the officers started to all come in and you saw their emotions and
3:20 am
frustrations and just how sad they were and just really one officer was, he was watching the news and hearing what was happening out there and the emotions he had because, you know, those were his -- that was his team out there that was being shot at. and he started crying when he was watching the news. that's when it really hit me oh, my gosh this could really be like orlando. we have to prepare for the worst and we don't know how many patients will be coming in or whether they will be police officers or civilians. we have to be ready for these guys. >> reporter: and the nurse there, when she talks about these guys, she's talking about her husband. her husband is a dallas police officer. he was working that day. thankfully he wasn't one of the first people who was downtown when all of this happened, but certainly you can imagine the fear gripping her as she's trying to do her job.
3:21 am

3:25 am
welcome back. i'm victor blackwell outside the dallas police headquarters here and as the couldn't mourns the loss of the five officers murdered in dallas, police officers across the country are now on edge as several more of them have become targets. in just the last 24 to 48 hours, so far there have been attacks in police officers in tennessee, in georgia, missouri, louisiana. the hours before the dallas ambush the first attack happened in bristol, tennessee. police say a man opened fire on drivers early thursday at a motel along the volunteer parkway. killing a woman and wounding three people including a police officer. the gunman was shot and arrested. now to georgia. investigators said a manmade a bogus theft call in order to lure an officer to an apartment complex and shot and wounded that man. the officer was able to shoot
3:26 am
back at the gunman. both are in an area hospital there. let's go to baldwin, missouri. police say a driver who was pulled over for speeding shot the officer in the neck. that officer is in critical condition this morning. the gunman ran away but was later captured. and new orleans. the fbi notified local police departments of social media threat to police officers. here's one. must kill every police. now, i want you to also having that in context listen to something that the mayor of dallas, mike rawlings said at a news conference here just yesterday. let's play it and we'll talk on the other side. >> but the chief makes decisions at times that people could be critical of. escalate it too much. do you put too much body armor on. think about today. this is what you're risking if
3:27 am
you don't do it right. >> let's bring in cnn law enforcement analyst cedric alexander and mr. russo. good morning to both of you. cedric, i want to start with you. detail for us because you're head of the department there in dekalb, public safety officer. what is that balance and how is it struck between protecting the officer and defending against these criticisms? >> well, you know, let's understand something here very quickly because oftentimes those two are mixed up. there is a part of policing where you do have to militaryize yourself. and we live in a very different time post-9/11. we're community oriented. we like to go out. have gear. their uniform.
3:28 am
in cases from what we saw the other night in dallas and also in orlando, we were up against violent individuals who were carrying high powered weaponry, and in the case there in dallas also there is indication or suspect of ied explosives being possible. so you have to prepare your police department one, to be trained in this weaponry, to have the necessary equipment and gear combat or fight an opposing subject who is coming into your environment, into your scene with high caliber weapons. let's go back to san bernardino. that was a major shoot out there on the streets of san bernardino with two individuals who had high powered rifles who came for a military-type of fight. so you have to have training. training is the important key here. but do officers walk around all
3:29 am
day long with this weaponry on them or in fatigues? no. we don't see that. but when they come to that type of fight, they have to be prepared for it. but it's about training and it's about understanding the difference between the two because today police have to be those guardians but at the same time gear up for a different kind of fight that we're seeing on the streets of our country by those who are trying to do great harm to a great number of people at one time. >> let's talk about what we saw on thursday night. these officers, granted were coming out to secure and protect the people who were, therefore, peaceful protesters and the protest was peaceful but they were outgunned by this one man. how does this impact the conversation of demilitarization of police officers that started after ferguson, after baltimore. >> my heart goes out to the
3:30 am
dallas police officers. every police officer remembers the day and minute they found out one of their own was shot or killed in the line of duty. the whole demilitarization thing is interesting. we have people in the debate who have no idea about law enforcement tactics or information. in ferguson people were throwing frozen water bottles at law enforcement and molotov cocktails. if you're a police administrator and have the ability to protect those officers from being burned or injured you have an obligation to do that. what we've seen people pulling or the government pulling some of these surplus military vehicles from law enforcement in georgia and at the same time the shoot out, the same week, the shoot out in san bernardino those officers were protected and those devices were used to keep them alive. that's the bottom line. demilitarization has been addressed everything from officers wearing high boots to carrying rifles. the bottom line the technology is there to protect them and we owe them the best protection we
3:31 am
can give them at the time. this concept of guardians versus warriors, warriors run into gunfire and protect citizens that are protesting to try to keep them alive. guardians draw chalk lines and every one of those police officers are warriors and that's what was needed at that moment. >> from your perspective, cedric, the name of your book is "the new guardians." what do you think about it. i'm not trying to start a conflict but this concept of warrior versus guardian, the role of police officers. >> well, me and mr. russo are saying the same thing. "the guardian" is that. we're in the community to assist, to be a part of, a member of that community, a part of that community. we're talking about those individuals who are prepared, they are trained, they got the best training to go out, do their jobs inside those communities. that's clearly stated in my book. but there's a flip side.
3:32 am
the flip side in certain circumstances, and just as we were talking about where police officers are going to engage a threat of individuals who want to do great harm to a great number of people they have to be prepared for that fight as well too. so, you always are going to have this continuum. we are here, we serve as guardians but we have to be prepared to move into a much more proactive type of position in order to go up against the real threats that are out there. i choose not to refer to them as warriors but those that are guardians but have the ability to move from guardian and move into that position to save lives if necessary with the right equipment and technology. >> all right. thank you both for being part of the conversation this morning. we'll continue to have separate angles of this conversation throughout the morning. including the political element here. the presidential candidates are now addressing the ambush here
3:33 am
in dallas. and the deaths of two black men in minnesota and louisiana after encounters with police. a look at how the candidates are responding to these events to rally supporters. in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo

have national guidelines about the use of force by police, especially deadly force. we need to do more to look into implicit bias and do more to respect and protect our police. >> maria, what she says, nobody would really argue. she's absolutely right. the problem that some people might look at in what a lot of people have been saying is these are conversations we've been having since michael brown was killed two years ago and still it seems not a lot has changed. will national use of force guidelines work. is there anything specific she points to that can make a difference? >> sure. i think what she's talking about is a holistic approach. we can agree there's not one silver lining here that will fix everything and so i think what hillary clinton is talking about is to have a very comprehensive holistic approach that is defined and that is talked about
3:51 am
using comments and using input from all sides of this debate. i think you're right, we have been talking about this for a very long time. i think what's happening instead of talking to each other, we have been talking at each other, yelling at each other or talking past each other. what hillary clinton is proposing to do is she has some very specific proposals as you have seen and as she has talked about, let's remember that her very first speech was about criminal justice reform but also talking about people coming together. and addressing these issues together. and talking to each other as opposed to past each other and i think that's something that has not been done as much as we need to do in the past. and as she talks about bringing people together, not dividing people, but making sure that people are really coming together and listening to each other is definitely something that has not been done as much as needs to be done. moving forward i think she will focus on that. >> let's listen to donald trump too what he said in his video
3:52 am
statement. >> our children deserve a better future than what we're making them live through today. but to get them there we must work together and stand together. we will make america safe again. >> i've heard some people say he looks and sounds very presidential there and he's speaking to families who are being hit with this chord, something that's resonating with them about what the future looks like for their children in america. i'm just wondering from you scotty how that will resonate with people who are on the fence with donald trump. >> this is one of the benefits of not being one of the parties in power. mr. trump can sit there and say these things, insert the proposals while hillary clinton is trying to figure out how will i do something different from the president who is currently in office. it's all about give a man a fish
3:53 am
you feed him for a day, teach a man how to fish you feed him for a lifetime. he wants to replace hate with respect. people feel race relations got worse since barack obama took office. that's all. since mr. trump is a businessman because the way do you that, let's give these folks real hope by giving them jobs, revitalize these inner communities and then you might be able to see the growth and change come from within because obviously what we're doing right now is not working. >> we're out of time. thank you both. we appreciate your input as always. >> thank you.

4:02 am
enormous memorial, there victor, from what we can see. >> yeah. just in front of the dallas police department headquarters, good morning to you. i want to step out of the way and give you a look at some of the families showing up here. it's 6:00 a.m. local time here in dallas, and there are families that have come here, have written notes, left them on the cars, taken just a moment of reflex, talking with some law enforcement officers, reading the notes. there's one on this cruiser that says, back the blue because i call, someone i call dad is on force. there are cards and flowers. one from the texas house of representatives, a wreath here as well. so this is what we've seen grow over the last 24 to 36 hours here in front of the police department and very likely there will be more people coming here throughout the day. again, it's just 6:00 a.m. and the families are here already. this community is, is mourning today and has been for two days
4:03 am
now after five officers were murdered by that lone gunman, targeting white officers who were working a peaceful protest. that march was in response to two other tragic events in our country, two black men died in encounters with police, separate incident, one in minnesota, one in louisiana. now overnight thousands across the country responded the only way they knew how in numbers marching to have their voices heard. in san francisco men and women descend on city hall protesting what they called a racist police system. rochester, new york, you see here, 74 people arrested in this city for disorderly conduct, hundreds protested the shooting there's. now to baton rouge where one the
4:04 am
shootings happened tensions flared. ralliers clashed with police. you see them in riot gear. a few placed under arrest but largely peaceful. this is phoenix. police used pepper spray, shot bean bags at the crowd there pushing back protesters. we're told they were trying to overrun a freeway. three people were arrested. we're told that happened after rocks were thrown at police. meanwhile, authorities are trying to get inside the head of the gunman behind the deadly attack here on police officers. the deadliest attack since 9/11 on law enforcement. investigators i 125-year-old micah xavier johnson had an arsenal of weapons when he unloaded them into that crowd. they found bomb making materials at his home as well. sara is following the details of what was found in this
4:05 am
investigation. authorities also found this journal of combat tactics. how key is that in this investigation? >> extremely key because what it speaks to is a planning process. this wasn't a person that suddenly decided to do something and went out to do it. he was planning. and that's how he was able to, number one kill so many people. so he clearly had an intention there long before this happened. how long before, we won't know. but i'm sure they are looking through all the details, looking for dates, looking to see just what it was that got him though point. we also should talk about some things pulled out of his home because that also speaks to his planning process. a rifle was in his home. ballistic vests that they found in his home as well as bomb making materials. of course when you consider all of that, this could have been, even though it was extremely terrible, this could have been worse. if he was able to, for example, take those bombs and he did tell
4:06 am
police during the negotiations that he had booby trapped the place and had bombs all over the place and they were extremely careful in trying to get to him as well. >> what's next in this investigation because i understand there are, of course, questions still that need to be answered. >> there have been in interviews with 200 police officers. apparently 12 officers fired back. any time a police officer fires his weapon or her weapon they are interviewed and there's an investigation. plus, considering that there was 45 minutes of a gun battle and there's got to be bullets and casings all over the place they are looking for forensic evidence as well. just because we now know the shooter is dead doesn't mean that there doesn't have to be a full investigation and a conclusion to that investigation at some point. that's going to take some time. >> we heard from chief brown, we heard from mayor rawlings much of downtown is a crime scene and still looking for a lot of that evidence.
4:07 am
what are they doing to increase security around the city because i know that's an important question that many who are in law enforcement and not in law enforcement have. >> i think at this point the threat, the immediate threat is obviously over. and they use this incredibly different -- none of us ever heard of this device that they ended up killing the suspect with, this robot that had a bomb on it and they were able to explode. a lot of people are talking about that and how useful it was in this particular situation to save lives after five people had already been killed, five officers killed, seven wound. but as far as making sure the city is safe the police are doing what they always do. they are investigating. they are going out and make being sure they have patrol officers on the street. >> and have been successful. >> this department has worked very hard to try to be more of a community police force. and you saw that during the black lives matter and the other protests going on all together
4:08 am
and they were protesting against police brutality. police were here and having conversations with one another. it wasn't a situation where there was violence at all between either group. there was really conversations going on. that speaks to how the police force has tried to change over the past 20 or 10 years. >> and under chief brown's leadership has been very successful and we'll talk more about that throughout the morning. thanks very much. police here in dallas, as sara just talked about used tactic that we had never heard of, seen before and many who study this seen or heard of. they sent that robot carrying a bomb into detonate teen kill that gunman. a look at that decision that many are calling unprecedented. that's coming up. plus the presidential candidates are now addressing the ambush here in dallas and the deaths of two black men in minnesota and

welcome back. i'm victor blackwell outside the dallas police department headquarters and the standoff between police here and that lone gunman who killed five officers ended in what really may be a first for law enforcement. the use of a robot carrying a bomb. cnn george howell has a look at how those robots are being used to keep men and women in uniform safe. >> there's the robot. going towards the -- >> reporter: remote controlled robots have been used by the u.s. military in wars in iraq and afghanistan to diffuse explosive devices. here's a scene from the movie "the hurt locke elocker."
4:21 am
in years departments have used the technology to investigate suspicious package. but in dallas the first the deliver of an explosive device by a robot that was used to killed the police shooting suspect holed up in a garage. negotiations to end the standoff had gone on for hours. >> we saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device on the, its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was. other options would have exposed our officers to great danger. >> reporter: police have not released the details of their

christi, i was surprised. never heard anything like that to use a robot to carry in a fwom kill th bomb to kill this attacker. >> we'll talk with he is cedric alexander author of "the new guardians." what is the value, first of all, to police departments with this kind of machinery, weaponry? >> it has a great deal of value in terms of protecting officers utilizing that equipment where there may be some type of explosive device. you're able to use that robot to go in and investigate. it's your eyes on at close range. >> but being used -- >> to reduce any likelihood of injury to officers are citizens. >> to use it in this regard where the target is the suspect as opposed to another explosive
4:24 am
device or for the use of surveillance. >> let's put this whole thing in context and that's what's important, very important. even though this is the first time of us hearing this being used by an american police department. >> as opposed to the military. >> as posed to in a war they are. here's what very important. they felt and it was clear in the other night there in dallas, we had a subject with a high powered rifle, a subject who had shot and killed five police officers and injured many others, that was holding a community at bay, that had barricaded himself inside a parking garage, and as s.w.a.t. entered they had to make a decision based on negotiation, based on tactics in which they were trained in what do we need to do in order to eliminate or minimize this threat. how they -- what threshold they used in order to get there i can't tell you that.
4:25 am
but they felt they needed to do what they needed to do at that time. that's what we heard chief brown say. >> i don't know if anybody would question necessarily what they did in dallas but the "l.a. times" has an article bringing up the fact that there are some ethical questions that are popping up regarding possibly future use of something like this. how do you find that symmetry between the threat and the use of this in a civilian set snooping that's going become the $100,000. this is the first time we've ever heard of this in this country again outside of a war zone. being that's the case the "l.a. times" article which i had an opportunity to read began to ask those questions. and i think there are going to be other questions as it relates to the ethics of it being utilized in an american society. but, however, i think it's important to understand in the context of the threat that the officers have to face out there today, whether it's in dallas,
4:26 am
orlando, certainly in san bernardino which is a very clear case of ircieds being utilized those who had field training in the middle east and that's the threat which our officers are up against. so sometimes they have to make decisions and then we have to do things that are different but that doesn't mean it won't raise questions. we have to ask those questions and come to some resolve. we live in a very, very different threat matrix than we ever had before and we thoof be prepared to meet that threat. >> and trained. you talk about how important the training is. thank you very much. still ahead the deadly ambush of police in dallas was bad enough. it wasn't the only attack against officers around the country those. this is one reason ordinary americans are going out of their way to let police know that they are appreciated. hopefully this is part of the healing that's starting to take

sitting down with them and talking about their initial thoughts of how to feel, being numb, angry, upset, not understanding why did this have to happen. please tell me this is a dream. >> you know that feeling because coincidentally and ironically nine years to the day of the ambush you lost your husband. >> yes, sir. >> what were you feeling when you were watching what happened in dallas that night? >> i was sick to my stomach. my heart hurt knowing there were five more families, children, spouses, parents that were going to have to go through the same thing that myself and my twin daughters and my husband's family and his dad and his sister had to go through learning that wes was killed in the line of duty. you're in shock. you really don't know what to think. you don't know what to feel. as time goes on and you have to make those arrangements and have to do all those things that go on with the line of duty death it's so in the public eye, these families are not allowed to
4:45 am
grieve privately. unfortunately it's not possible because so many people want to show their support and so many people want to be there for them that it's so public that they are just not allowed to grieve. so numb and just not truly understanding what's truly going on. >> the cameras, the national attention will leave at some point. >> absolutely. >> what then will the next couple of weeks, months, years even say head for these families from your organizations. >> to give you a little bit background, we've been around for more than 30 years. it was formed in 1984, with 110 individual members. we serve more than 37,000 families nationwide. we have over 50 chapters across the united states. and so -- >> it really is a family of its own. >> absolutely. absolutely. national cops and police survivors is funded by grants and donations so there's peer support for the families of the fallen whether you're a spouse

4:47 am

the number are alarming. the u.s. has a serious problem of people targeted of the colors of their skin. according to the washington post, there is been 509 deadly police shootings this year, 123,
4:52 am
are black and of those twelve were unarmed and nine of them had toy weapons. these numbers are based on reports and public records and social media and other sources. two of the most recent that happened just this week. alton sterling in louisiana, philando castile in minnesota. i want to bring in david wilson that's catering to african-americans. david, thank you for being with me. i want you to talk about the ability to have these simultaneously conversations, what we are talking about here in dallas and the deaths of sterling and castile. did it make it easier or
4:53 am
difficult to have the conversation about what many black people feel and what many police officers feel? >> well, clearly, i think it makes it difficult but i think it is two conversations that americans must have at the same time. we all mourn for the five officers who were assassinated and the twelve who were injured in class. at the same time the protests are for millions of black folks who have been disfranchised or feels that their lives don't matter. so many unborn black folks not just here in america but around the globe. you tend to look at this just as an american problem but a lot of people around the globe is looking at what happened in america and taking that as an example, i can give you a clear case.
4:54 am
i was stopped in brazil and after they went through my bags and gave me my belonging bag, oh, but you have it worst in america. this is something that everything is looking of how americans treating black people and how they treat this diswilhelmsdi disfranchise and in society. >> let me ask you david, your concerns of how what happened here in dallas could impact the protests we see across the country, what are those concerns? >> well, my concern is that we are going of a heighten police protection during protests and i hope that does not create more tensions between officers and protesters. i mean these protests over the last couple of years have by and large been very peaceful.
4:55 am
i think there is going to b be -- some of these police agencies across the country to tighten security. what i hope does not happen is that there is no conflict as a result of it. i think it is going to be in everybody's head going forward. it is going to be in the protester's head and the police officer's head. i hope it does not create tensions, protesters want to get their point across peacefully and police officers want to do their jobs protecting the lives of innocence >> yeah, we have seen from the officers here across the country antidotely going out of their way. but, still working to make sure they're protecting people and protecting themselves. i want to ask you a question and it is an uncomfortable question. after seeing the image that's
4:56 am
been on social media, the few pictures that we have of this shooter, of -- candidly -- we throw our fist in the air. it is solidarity and a symbol of change and resistance, have this man changed that by doing what he did here in dallas? >> no more than a police officer wearing a badge has changed the perception of most americans about all police officers. i think this is a guy who's clearly deranged and he can wear anything. he can wear a cnn shirt, it would not make anything of cnn. we have to look at this guy as
4:57 am
an isolated incident. most african-americans, 99.9% are in solidarity with the dallas police department right now. we mourn for the lives loss. at the same time, we have to continue to fight for our people. i have never seen a moment for my life where there is so much about being black. i look at the philando castile, if that was me, i don't know if i could have done anything differently and have a different outcome. i would have been in the mourn right now. i think we have to have two conversations at once. it is difficult to have the simultaneous conversations. david wilson, thank you very much for being with us.

welcome back i am victor blackwell in front of the dallas police head quarters in downtown. as the country mourns the loss of the five officers here. police across the country are really on edge. so far there is been attacks on police officers in tennessee from georgia, missouri and
5:23 am
louisiana and hours before the dallas ambush, the first attack happens in bristol, tennessee. a man opened fire on drivers early thursday killing a woman, wounded three people including that officer. the gunman was shot and arrested. investigators say a manmade a -- shooting a wounded officer but the officer was able to shoot back at the gunman. now, in missouri where police say a driver was pulled over for speeding shot the officer in the neck. that neck is in critical condition this morning tch, the gunman ran away. in new orleans, the fbi notified police departments of social media threat to officer in one quote "must kill every police." lets talk about that. >> our police executive director
5:24 am
of police association, good morning to you. condolences for your losses here, i know you cannot talk about specifics of the investigation for these officers. what has been the impact that brought on this? >> well, you know first, our officers are with heavy hearts and a state of shock and disbelief of what has occurred here in dallas. there are unprecedented types of violence against police in the united states and especially here in dallas texas. i think the impact on our department is what we have seen and we can civilize and you can see with flowers and candles. we are seeing support from our residents and our business of community. we are alseaio seeing -- they w
5:25 am
to readdress this, and they do not want violence. >> now, lieutenant governor said that he saw protesters needing the health of police while they were protesting. did you see tha went well? >> i want to expand on what the governor said. we had our relations engagement since 1993, we had community policing. every chief has expanded on that and its gotten better and better in community engagement. our protesters had multiple protests and we protected the
5:26 am
protest and the day of the protest and an hour before, 30 minutes before, police were taking photographs with protesters and posted on social media and walking along the side of the route. we can agree or disagree, and that goes across many disciplines. we have professionals and we go to our jobs and we ran through the face of danger and we lost five officers. >> let me ask you about this. i know you have seen it. jones, she on her facebook page, we'll play a bit of her video had a message. lets watch it. >> please forgive me. if you are white and you work in a black community and you are racist, you need to be ashamed
5:27 am
of yourself. you took a oath and you need to take your behind some where else. if you are that officer, you are afraid of people that don't look like you, you have no business in that uniform. take it off. >> again, she is a police officer and it is been viewed nearly seven million times. but, are there real conversations like that inside the department? >> i can speak for dallas. i have seen this conversation. i have seen officers with other officers who have different understanding of cultures and different places where we come from. i mean we are still trying to figure out this integrated society and segregated society.
5:28 am
the conversation is to stamp that out is reprimanded and determinations and police departments will not tolerate racism and discrimination. the bias which all of us have which we don't focus on, it is a conscious bias, that conversation cannot take place until you realize that you have a culture difference. that's maybe what the young lady is saying when you see something vastly different from how another race or ethic sees things, that's the problem between us, we don't talk about, the small conversations but at large -- that's why of the 21st century, i call on the national president of this police brutality. i hope the future president to have that conversation so we can have that conversation overall and in every city across the united states. we need to have it.
5:29 am
she's right in that aspect >> deputy chief, thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you for having me as always. thank you for the nation for the world of support to the dallas police department and our rapid area transit police department >> thank you very much, the call for justice the call of so solitarity. what should be done to answer those calls? i'm terrible at golf. he is. but i'd like to keep being terrible at golf for as long as i can. new patented ensure enlive has hmb plus 20 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle. for the strength and energy to do what you love. new ensure enlive. always be you.

are, the only away is to acknowledge the problem. the video and work like mr. reynolds has voiced us all. we have to come to grip with this and in black communities. it is only an we acknowledge that and we have the power to deal with it honestly. also what she did gives me a reason for hope and i also just have to pause to take knowledge of heroism of the dallas police officers who were out there protecting them and had the courage to gun towards gunfire and had todd protect folks. just even in an area with so many policemen that the amount of harm that a single gunman could do and the amount of harm
